Abstract:
Christina McMahon, RN, BSN; Roswell Park Cancer Institute; Buffalo, NYAs a comprehensive cancer center, the challenge to respond to the growing need for nursing recruitment and retention, implementation of shared governance and application for magnet status have driven the change in the orientation education for nursing staff at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Recommendations from staff program evaluations, input from incumbent staff through Education councils, review of the literature, including the ONS Education Blueprint, and benchmarking with like institutions determined the structure recommended. The goal was to develop an evidence-based, oncology focused orientation that met the needs of nursing staff coming into our comprehensive cancer center with all levels of experience. To provide classes meaningful to all levels of experience, the decision was made to have new nursing staff attend classes based on their past experience. 3 levels of nursing staff were identified, Graduate nurse, Experienced nurse and Experienced Oncology Nurse. A competency self assessment completed by the new staff member on their first day of employment along with a skill demonstration drives the classroom orientation they are required to attend. Evidence and benchmarking helped shape the classroom content included and the presentation methods used. Basic pieces recommended by the ANCC for orientation in a magnet institution were incorporated with oncology information included by other like institutions. Information previously provided in SLM format was recommended as lecture content. Lectures incorporating power-point presentations with case studies to provide relatable reinforcement of the content presented. Oncology service specific classes were recommended to build on the information in the Basic Oncology Nursing Orientation. A tool was developed that allows new staff to evaluate classroom orientation at the end of each class session. Information will be shared with Education Councils for on-going discussion on how to shape future sessions. By providing an orientation program that evaluates the nursing staffÆs previous experience and then provides an evidenced-based classroom orientation built around their oncology specific educational needs, the information is relevant to the learner and thus a valuable learning experience.
