Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Purpose/Background: To sustain a role and standards based workforce, a consistent message about professional role expectations is required. A data-driven, evidence-based program for professional role development has been implemented with RNs and is being hardwired into the orientation and ongoing education system as a key strategy to support a professional role competent workforce. Methods/Approach: Define: Critical-to-quality (CTQ) measures of nursing orientation were identified through a survey approach involving nurses at levels. These CTQs were defined using a professional practice framework. Current state process map was captured. Measure: Baseline assessment of unit orientation structures and processes was conducted using CTQs. CTQs were prioritized based on findings. Orientation content was evaluated using a professional practice framework. Analyze: Based on process map and CTQs, requirements and issues were identified. The need for standardization of processes, tools and metrics among units was apparent. Improve: Analysis resulted in standardization of orientation processes and assessment tools and development of new tools. These tools included: Professional Practice Interview Tool, Learning Style Assessment, Clinical Knowledge Assessment, Professional Practice Knowledge Assessment, Professional Role Curriculum Guide and integration support plan. Participants: Participants included educators and clinical nurse specialists, nursing projects manager, performance improvement specialist, and director research and education. Outcome: A systematic approach to professional role development supports high standards of professional practice and contributes to raising the standard of care. Outcome measures include: Turnover (< 1 year), effective use of training resources, satisfaction with individualized educational program, progressive role development, program evaluations and levels of learning evaluation.
