Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Background: The Clinical Nurse Leader(SM) (CNL) emerged as the first new role for nursing since the nurse practitioner emerged in the late 1960s. Our magnet facility has experienced a strengthened professional model of care with the implementation of the CNL role. The Veterans Health Administration nursing leadership firmly supported implementation of the new role in VA practice settings, and a formal evaluation plan was laid out. The first report of Phase I from that evaluation was published out in January, 2010. Now in Phase II of data collection, the formal evaluation plan did not capture some qualitative outcomes that were deemed important to maturing shared governance and other components of the Magnet model. To better capture the qualitative outcomes, staff nurses were surveyed with items under the major question: what have CNLs done for me? Responses indicated that CNLs improved communication, clarified processes underlying communication venues, served as consistent points of communication for the health care team, and were perceived as advocating for staff nurses. CNLs were felt to empower staff nurses, help them navigate the larger organization, better understand the importance of measurement, and served as exemplars of professional behavior with patients and with other professional staff. Staff nurses saw the CNLs as bringing follow-through with processes, guiding tests of change and reducing wasted steps and time. Concurrent observations of the implementation of CNLs in the hospital found several innovations underway: Safe patient handling Initiative, Improving patient & staff
