Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: In our community hospital it is our goal to promote the expectation of exemplary professional practice at any degree level while encouraging RN to BSN. While there are limits placed on non-BSN nurses such as formal leadership roles, we pride ourselves in celebrating all nursing staff. Our goal is to ensure that all nurses feel valued for what they offer to our patients and organization through their clinical expertise and dedication. Non degree nurses are supported with opportunities to excel, including programs promoting national certification, leadership roles in shared governance, presenters at Nursing Grand Rounds, clinical mentor and preceptor to new nurses, and as active participants in research. All of these initiatives are presented with the goal that as the non BSN nurse experiences professional success it will plant the seed of inspiration toward the desire for attainment of BSN. This presentation will include a description of programs developed to promote lifelong learning including; BSN Roundtables presentation by current BSN students with varied ages and backgrounds that discuss the trials and tribulations of obtaining a degree while reinforcing the satisfaction of accomplishment, on site BSN programs, tuition reimbursement, scholarship programs and BSN Educational Fairs. It is believed that each educational success for the non BSN nurse builds the sense of accomplishment in their professional practice and as a result we have seen the increase of non BSN staff pursuing formal education while non BSN staffs feel valued while embracing the accepted organizational commitment of lifelong learning for optimal patient outcomes.
