Abstract:
Ambulatory nurses have been assigned various roles within the clinical setting. The traditional role for staff nurses has included direct patient care providers, disease process experts, and the ability to function independently within the clinical setting. An additional role has been developed within the ambulatory clinics ù Clinical Care Coordinator. This role provides a model to display leadership and further staff development within the ambulatory setting. According to a recent literature review, primary care nursing should allow nurses to lead by example in order to utilize the current work force more effectively. The Clinical Care Coordinator will demonstrate leadership within the clinical setting. The role of the Clinical Care Coordinator has been utilized within one ambulatory setting with a primary focus on education. The management team worked with the nursing instructor to provide nurse- led in-services, monthly quizzes and liaison for patient education. Additional educational support was provided by the nursing instructor for continuing education credits. This process provides for effective teaching strategies and interdepartmental feedback. One of challenges in nursing is limitation for advancement and this role may address this limitation. Over a six month period, the role of Clinical Care Coordinator has greatly impacted educational advancement. This has been demonstrated through the orientation of new nurses, in-services and clinical competencies. This role contributes to advanced leadership within the clinic and promotes a dual role, for clinical leadership and management support. Ongoing feedback will evaluate this role and provide continued support for this role within the clinical setting. The findings from this leadership initiative will inspire other ambulatory clinics to carve out this role and better utilization within the workforce.
