Abstract:
Lost Knowledge/Lost Wisdom in Nursing: Implications for Nursing Leaders In 2006, a landmark report was released focusing on the retention of older nurses in direct care roles, entitled Wisdom at Work; The Retention of the Seasoned and Experienced Nurse. This report generated dialogue related to this issue and spawned several grant-funded projects to test the cited best practices. A second tier project is now underway for exploring the issue of lost knowledge and therefore, lost wisdom, among clinical nursing staff as our profession faces looming retirements and transitions of our most experienced nurses. A simple random survey of 41 Magnet nursing facilities was conducted by six nursing leaders during the summer of 2008 to explore current understanding of and practices related to transfer of knowledge. This presentation will address the issue of lost knowledge and therefore, lost wisdom in nursing, provide an overview of the survey results, and identify recommendations for consideration by nursing leaders. In preliminary data review, there are many examples of knowledge transfer focused on skill acquisition, policies and procedures but few institutions have developed initiatives focused on the transfer of non-technical knowledge and wisdom. The framework of the recommendations are based on methodologies for learning. This work is in support of the 2009 focus of the national Magnet conference centering on transformational leadership and nursing excellence.
