Purpose: To provide a solid foundation for the novice registered nurse (RN) with less than one year pediatric experience to obtain the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed for the practice of pediatric emergency nursing. The Pediatric Emergency Nurse Program (PEN) enhances the ability of the institution and the emergency department to compete in the health care marketplace, to recruit and retain registered nurses, and to provide successful client outcomes for patients and families seeking emergency care. Design: The twelve-month program was designed to prepare the novice registered nurse to competently practice as a pediatric emergency nurse in the multidisciplinary pediatric emergency department environment. A patient-centered framework, the nursing process, elements of organization competencies, Benner's Skill Acquisition model, adult learning principles, and relevant learning and teaching strategies provided the framework for the internship program. The PEN program consists of 328 hours of didactic instruction and 1,548 hours of preceptor-guided clinical practice. The internship program curriculum also includes, but is not limited to, organizational and role specific competencies. The core curriculum contains three formal courses: 1) Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course, 2) Trauma Nursing Core Course, and 3) Pediatric Advanced Life Support Provider Course. Settings/Subjects: The PEN program was implemented in an emergency department in a teaching, urban, Level I pediatric trauma center. To date, four novice registered nurses with previous experience working in an emergency setting have participated in the program. Method: Process evaluation and role specific competencies are used to evaluate the PEN program. The process evaluation employs a Likert scale and affords the participants the opportunity to comment on and rate program effectiveness in the following areas: 1) Relevancy of objectives to overall purpose/goals, 2) Learners' achievement of each objective, 3) Expertise of the faculty, and 4) Appropriateness of teaching strategies. The role specific competency checklist consists of required organizational competencies and role specific competencies that are validated by the faculty and identified preceptor. Results: Three interns have successfully completed six months of the twelve-month program. Written competencies, evaluations, and clinical hours provide evidence of achievement of expected outcomes. Recommendations: The internship program appears to be fostering the professional growth and development of novice ED nurses. Evaluation of the PEN program will continue as current nurses complete the program. [Poster Presentation]
