Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: A group of nurse educators developed an orientation involving multiple modalities of learning. All staff completed didactic training, on-line education, hands-on practice and return demonstration on new skills. Simulated emergencies were conducted in the new ECC environment using high fidelity human patient simulators. The scenarios included precipitous delivery, infant near drowning, stroke, and heart attack. The simulations involved all departments of the ECC; including registration, triage, treatment, diagnostic testing, computer documentation, emergency response, and critical transfers or discharge. Simulation immersed the participants into a realistic environment with immediate feedback. At the same time facility and logistical problem solving took place which allowed the opening of the ECC to be more efficient. The orientation helped build close relationships between a multidisciplinary staff while promoting a unified environment. In addition the educators identified improved employee engagement, positive team work, and observed a growing sense of ownership. Overall the orientation including the use of simulation improved their confidence while validating their competence.
