Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The Children's Mercy Hospital OR is an all RN staff. After 20 years of growth, the OR has grown from six to 19 OR suites and a staff that has quadrupled in size to over 100 members. Orientation of the new staff proved to be challenging. It was often placed on staff members with one to two years of experience as the veteran RNs were used as scrub nurses, RNFAs, or were involved with managerial duties. Over the last three summers, the OR has had an influx of 10 to 12 new graduates. This summer, the "Back to Basics" orientation program brought the more experienced perioperative nurses back into the preceptor role. They were asked to break the cycle of "this is just a job" by being an example to the younger and newer generation by using their knowledge, passion, and work ethics. Our orientation program is six months in length with a minimum of three weeks in each specialty. Orientees are also given the opportunity to learn to scrub for two weeks, which in turn sharpens their circulating skills. A "Back to Basics" presentation was given to all the staff to help facilitate a change in attitudes, increase a team concept, and bring out the pride that each and every perioperative nurse should display. Bringing three generations to work together smoothly is always a challenge. The Children's Mercy Hospital Operating Room veteran nurses take pride in their ability to nurture a new generation of perioperative nurses to follow in their footsteps.
