Abstract:
In an increasingly outcomes driven healthcare climate, the role of the registered nurse remains central to the provision of safe, appropriate, and effective care. The ability to manage patient care towards desired outcomes is perhaps the most critical skill set and competency required of todays registered nurse. Outcomes College is an educational program designed to advance evidence based nursing practice while emphasizing the role of the bedside RN as the manager of the interdisciplinary plan of care. The curriculum was developed with input from staff nurses and covers key outcomes associated with the organizations critical success factors of people, service, quality and safety, efficiency, finance and growth. Specific program content includes a review of enhancements to the professional practice model; current reimbursement practices; clinical coding and documentation; the nurses ability to impact outcomes associated with core measures, nurse sensitive quality indicators, and national patient safety goals; case management and discharge planning; and collaboration with other disciplines to develop and manage an interdisciplinary plan of care in the electronic medical record. More than 1,000 RNs and LPNs and over 200 ancillary clinicians have completed Outcomes College. Outcomes achieved to date include: positive improvement trends in core measures, nurse sensitive quality indicators, and national patient safety goals with the majority of scores at or above state and national benchmarks; patient satisfaction specific to nursing care has improved from the 72nd percentile to the 85th percentile; and the increase in mean scores from the pre-tests and post-tests are statistically significant.
