Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: While currently in "remission," the nationwide nursing shortage will be back within five years and, by most projections, will be more severe. All indications are that we will be facing a critical shortage of trained perioperative nurses by 2015. One solution that has proven to be effective at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center is to expose high school students to nursing, in general, and perioperative nursing, in particular. By generating this awareness, we hope to create a spark of interest that will carry through as they further their educations and make their ultimate career choices. Several of our new hires over the last few years had one or more of these experiences while in high school and state that the program influenced their decision to pursue a career in the operating room. In addition, anecdotal evidence gleaned from conversations with students at these events shows that many of them would not have considered a career in perioperative nursing prior to participating in the program. We firmly believe that each of us considering retirement in the next five to ten years must be thinking about ways to replace ourselves and pass our accumulated experience on to the next generation.
