Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Registered nurses are empowered through the shared governance model to participate in all aspects of nursing practice at our Magnet designated hospital. A multimodal approach to orientation was developed incorporating both the bedside registered nurse and technology to create a staff nurse and technology driven orientation. This blended learning approach to new hire education includes implementation of a Professional Interdisciplinary Day for all health professionals, the development of a Nursing Orientation sub-committee on the Professional Development Council (PDC), the incorporation of staff nurses as teachers and the use of technology in orientation. The Professional Interdisciplinary Day includes sessions that foster interdisciplinary communication and teamwork such as role-playing the SBAR communication tool. The PDC sub-committee reviews orientation content and recommends additions or deletions. Technology incorporated into orientation includes the development of an orientation intranet site to post handouts, the incorporation of learning modules on our online education program, and online orientation evaluation. All staff nurses are offered the opportunity to teach in orientation and take a Presenting with Finesse session on public speaking prior to their first presentation. Results include 15 registered bedside nurses participating in nursing orientation each month, a decrease in the amount of time spent in the classroom for nursing orientation, elimination of redundancy in class content and positive qualitative feedback from the Professional Interdisciplinary Day. Newly hired staff rated nursing orientation as a 3.5 on a 4.0 Likert scale. A bedside staff nurse and technology driven orientation program is effective in teaching newly hired nurses.
