Abstract:
PURPOSE: With multiple preceptors orienting new nurses throughout the year it creates variation in the topics and skills covered during orientation. Our challenge is two-fold, to provide a standardized and consistent orientation and support and educate our preceptors. A four hour preceptor educational session entitled Preceptor Power-Up was developed. Through ongoing evaluation of the content is continually revised for the twice yearly sessions. Description: The curriculum is a compilation of lecture, interactive activities, demonstration, brainstorming, and social integration activities. The lecture highlights the Department of Nursing Orientation, unit specific orientation, new changes to the orientation process, and preceptor frequently asked questions. Interactive activities such as each preceptor completing a learning style inventory to help them understand and enhance their teaching style, developing preceptor to preceptor communication tools, and scenarios for when to explore other resources are done. A demonstration of web based resources of instructional modalities, critical thinking tools and questions to ask orientees, using SBAR, and prioritization tools is provided. A brainstorming session tackles teaching issues and gives an opportunity to give feedback regarding the orientation process. Activities to promote social integration of the new orientees begin in the Preceptor Power-Up. The preceptors write letters to the new orientees and complete a "Getting to Know Your Preceptor" survey. Classes to enhance precepting skills are recommended. An article review on precepting is done. The class creates competent and confident preceptors to meet the needs of our orientees. EVALUATION: An e-mail survey is distributed to preceptors and orientees approximately 3 months after the Preceptor Power-Up. Formal and informal feedback has shown the Preceptor Power-Up has enhanced our orientation program. The feedback from the preceptors found that it was beneficial and the new orientees felt that their preceptors were consistent in their teaching and had different solutions for addressing their needs. Feedback combined with continual review of the content allows us to support our preceptors with a session that is unique to their needs and the needs of the unit. This program creates an attitude of confidence and collegiality among our preceptors and orientees.
