Abstract:
Purpose/Objective: To describe a unit-based strategy to create a culture where staff is developed, retained and empowered to solve unit and organizational problems. Significance: The development of clinical staff in direct care roles has historically been imbedded as a core value of Clinical Nurse Specialist practice. Through the development of staff, the quality of clinical practice can be optimized and the CNS can affect the spheres of influence directly for patient care and clinical staff. The added value of CNS practice to the organization includes quality clinical practice, patient satisfaction and staff retention. In addition, staff who are empowered and capable of meeting their potential as care providers. Clinical Nurse Specialists, while directing their efforts towards staff, are not alone in this development work. In settings where there are multiple nursing job roles, navigating and ensure the development of every clinical staff person can be complex. Background/ Rationale: At our academic medical center, with Magnet designation, there are many nursing roles that influence development of clinical staff. Clinical Nurse Specialists are unit-based or service-based within this organization. The clinical staff are expected to maximize their full potential by embracing the efforts of many resource persons and groups. Within the staff nurse role, there are individuals that develop their peers every day. Description: The Interventional Cardiology Unit, a 36-bed inpatient service uses an Nurse Practitioner-based model, as part of an interdisciplinary patient and family centered care model. There are two CNS's that share accountability for the unit-based clinical staff development with the Nurse Manager. The unit's entire clinical and operational staff is managed by a Nurse Manager. There is also a CNS who is a dedicated Nurse Researcher that is based within the Cardiology Nursing units, that also contributes in a unique way to the development of clinical staff and nursing leaders. Outcome: The success of this model can be recognized through the clinical practice in direct clinical care, the retention of the clinical staff, the satisfaction of patients and the achievements of the clinical staff. Interpretation/ Conclusion: CNS practice remains integral in the development of clinical staff. In order to succeed in developing and retaining staff, there is an inherent need for all leaders to contribute to sustaining this culture. Implications: CNS practice must remain closely aligned with the development of staff. Concentrating on the unit-based clinical practice development will ensure a highly functional team of clinical staff and nursing leaders. Communication and a culture that can support such development will thrive in the presence of highly developed clinical staff.
