Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Identify internal talent, and maintain an enriching environment that fosters personal and profession growth; and retain that talent within the system. At a recent nursing retreat the staff and leadership identified a desire to develop a program that would support advancing education and encourage nurses to pursue leadership positions within a Midwestern urban medical center. The medical center also understands the vital importance of the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, specifically the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), to maintain a quality, evidence based, resource rich practice environment. The medical center supports this process through a variety of interventions including on campus programs, leadership support, monetary reimbursement, research project development, education and certification fairs, and employment opportunities. The most enriching support is the mentorship provided by established CNSs within the medical center. To date, one individual has successfully transitioned from a Program Leader to a CNS position. Three individuals are in the process of completing their CNS programs and transitioning to CNS positions within the medical center. In 2010 there are plans to foster three more staff RNs to CNS positions through the intra-facility recruitment process. Opportunity and mentorship involved in this growth role has provided invaluable resources for the RN staff. The program has also provided a growth role for character, skill and knowledge advancement. The possibilities for professional development provided by a program of this nature have been monumental to maintaining a Magnet culture.
