Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to provide strategies to help the novice CNS and the CNS student transition into their new role. Significance: Whether the CNS is new to the facility or just new to the role, adjusting to the demands of the position can be overwhelming. Design: In institutions new to the CNS role, there is a lack of understanding of the orientation needs of the new CNS. Even in institutions with experienced CNSs a formal orientation may not exist. Therefore, the burden of orientation may fall on the novice CNS. Methods: This presentation highlights key components of an effective CNS orientation. In addition to discussing orientation this presentation will provide information to guide successful implementation of the CNS role. Areas of focus include important meetings and committee involvement, articulating the CNS role, identification of problems within the CNS's population and extracting and managing data. All three spheres of influence are important; this presentation will provide strategies to maintain balance among the three spheres. Tips to identify and overcome barriers along with capitalizing on resources to facilitate change are discussed. This presentation provides realistic goal setting for the first year. Findings: By incorporating these tips and strategies, the novice CNS will be properly oriented to the institution, be involved in the right committees to influence practice and be able to demonstrate the value they bring to the institution. Conclusions: Although the new CNS has the educational foundation to help assimilate into the role, these tips from recent graduates will aid in the transition to CNS practice. Implications for Practice: These tips enable the novice CNS to become efficient and effective as they influence the three spheres.
