Abstract:
Purpose: 1) Discuss strategies used to establish a Nursing Grand Rounds program. 2) Describe methods used to enhance staff nurse involvement in the Nursing Grand Rounds process. Significance: Creative strategies are necessary to meet the educational needs and professional development of the registered nurse. One challenge for the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) group at Moses Cone Health System is coaching and mentoring nursing staff in the areas of practice, education, and professional development. Design/Background/Rationale: In order to meet this challenge, the CNS group developed and implemented a Nursing Grand Rounds program. Nursing Grand Rounds is a monthly educational offering using a multidisciplinary format that highlights interesting and complex case studies from our organization. Methods/Description: Initially, the CNS group coordinated all aspects of Nursing Grand Rounds, including identification of patients for presentation, chart reviews, and media design. We were also the main presenters. As the program evolved, staff nurses began to identify possible patients for case studies and to participate in planning sessions. Findings/Outcomes: With mentoring and coaching, staff nurses also began to do the actual presentations. Using a continuum of care approach, staff nurses provide a firsthand account of their patients' presentation, clinical practice issues, educational needs, and areas for improvement in patient care delivery. Conclusions: Nursing Grand Rounds ranging from Postpartum Cardiomyopathy to Neuro Trauma have allowed nurses to share their expertise, increase their knowledge in the care of patients outside their specialty area, and develop professional presentation skills.
