Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Providing unit-based educational resources without adding additional Nursing Professional Development personnel is an ongoing challenge. We expanded on a concept already in use by a few of our nurse managers. The role of Education Liaison was formally introduced in 2006 and continues to provide unique benefits. Education Liaisons are bedside staff nurses who are given 8-12 hours every 2 weeks to assist with staff development. Our Advanced Practice Nurse Clinicians already cover several units in addition to being responsible for the orientation of new nursing staff. The Education Liaisons are bedside experts and work closely with the Nurse Clinicians who have clinical expertise as well as expertise in nursing professional development. The liaisons are provided initial training in Teaching/Learning Styles, Adult Learning Theory, Education Planning and Competency Validation, and Presentation Skills. Education Liaisons meet monthly as part of the Patient Care Services Education Council to identify educational needs and plan educational activities for the nursing staff. Through this format, we have experienced improved communication and sharing of resources between nursing units. Other rewards have included the implementation of unit-based education councils and enrollment of staff nurses in advanced degree programs with a nursing education focus. Our investment in developing and mentoring this group of bedside nurses will ultimately result in a whole new generation of nurse leaders.
