Abstract:
With the growing complexity of the health care system, professional development is an essential component of a capable nursing workforce. Non-productive nursing time used for off-site training contributed to higher nursing hours per patient days and nursing units exceeding their budget targets. Education was decentralized per unit with inconsistent training, inability to access records to meet regulatory requirements, lack of nursing engagement, and no evaluation method for professional development. With increasing financial pressures, executive leadership challenged nursing to reduce non-productive nursing hours spent on education. A team, led by a nurse-trained Black Belt, utilized lean sigma to analyze data on patient populations and knowledge resources, critique evidence on patient care requirements, and simulate patient care experiences. A patient placement and staffing concept was developed that included an advanced practice and nursing education team with outlined responsibilities for quality monitoring, improvement, and bed-side professional development. Nursing positions were designed to provide clinical expertise to select populations and secure future Advance Practice Nurses. Technology was reviewed to determine efficient ways to manage educational requirements. Supported by the Chief Nursing Officer, the team presented recommendations to Executive stakeholders that resulted in the reallocation and addition of 12 FTE to a centralized advanced practice education department and the purchase of a computerized learning management system. Quality outcomes were sustained and non-productive nursing hours were reduced by half. Through implementation of the innovative infrastructure, resources were obtained to support evidence-based practice and professional development.
