Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: In April of 2008, the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and educator group began a weekend education program to provide staff supplemental education and guidance with clinical issues. This program, known as Clinical Assistance and Professional Education (CAPE) is administrated by the CNS/educator group and directed by requests identified by the staff. In addition to education, the CAPE representative provides bedside clinical expertise. One Clinical Nurse Specialist or Nurse Educator is assigned to work each weekend. Planning for topics is done by a collaborative education committee and is based on the mission and goals of the hospital and by staff needs. Topics chosen for weekend education are generic to all staff including the Adult and the Children's Hospital. Examples of previous CAPE education topics include Code Cart Review, Changes to the Blood Transfusion Process, and Pain Management Update. Data regarding staff nurses affected and specific responses to clinical issues is collected each day, and presented in summary fashion to nursing leadership. Results of evaluations and impact of this program are shared on a quarterly basis with nursing staff representatives of the nursing union. If specific issues are of concern, the CAPE educator communicates with the appropriate director or department. It is the expectation that this communication is achieved on the day it occurs to provide staff with a prompt response and timely feedback. This Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference« will show the process of the incorporation of the CAPE program and how staff input and evaluations continue to assist in the evolution to current day.
