Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Background: Peer review is a hallmark of professional nursing practice with a Magnet culture. Peer review in an in-patient hospital setting is conducted by RN evaluation based upon unit practices. RNs who work in outpatient clinics have fewer peers and a number of diverse clinics making application of the in-patient peer review model difficult. A Shared Governance Outpatient Clinical Practice Council (OP-CPC) representing 22 different specialty clinics created a nurse portfolio process for peer review. We sought to determine if this process using a portfolio focused on professionalism in clinical practice, professional development, community service and research participation was feasible in the outpatient setting. Methods: The OP-CPC developed sample portfolio packets, created a standardized rating form for use by a clinic nurse peer group for evaluation and educated clinic nurses regarding the peer review program. Portfolios were analyzed for completeness. Statistical analysis was carried out using frequency tables which provided chi-square statistics using SAS software. Results: 140 RNs submitted a portfolio. Percent of evidence provided in the portfolio categories were as follows: Certified nurses 94%; BSN & Certification RNs 78%, BSN alone 70%, and those with neither BSN nor Certification, 70%. RNs with certification provide significantly more evidence than those in the other groups (p=0.0002). Conclusions: A portfolio approach to peer review in an outpatient clinic setting was successful in gaining nursing participation. Nurses with specialty certification provided the greatest evidence of professionalism.
