Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This presentation will describe how an organization developed a Professional Nursing Database that successfully integrated multiple layers of nursing data tracking and reporting processes. ABSTRACT: Large Health Care Systems face the challenge of tracking and recording staff nurse demographics and professional activities. Decentralization of nursing across diverse practice locations contributes to the need for an electronic Nursing database that is accessible to all levels of nursing. This organization developed a Professional Nursing Database using Microsoft Access and SQL Server. It successfully integrates multiple layers of professional nursing data tracking and reporting processes. Past processes for data capture and reporting were tedious, resource intensive and incomplete. The data was based in Excel and Paradox which had data and query limitations. Nurses were required to submit a "paper" copy of the nursing annual update which included demographic and professional information; this data was hand entered into an Excel spreadsheet. Separate administrative processes were in place for Recruitment and Retention (R&R) and Nurse Credentialing and Evaluation activities. An Access database was developed to integrate these key administrative processes into one database. Three phases were identified for this project. The first was to develop the Access/SQL Server database and the nursing "annual update" web site. Phase two was to build in the recruitment and on boarding information; the addition of the R & R report provides recruitment metric data and analysis tracking capability. Phase three will integrate the nursing credentialing and evaluation components. This data base provides opportunity for organizational, divisional, and unit level reporting. The "annual update" was rolled out to all nursing staff in December 2007. As of today, there has been a 70% completion rate by nurses across all levels of the organization. Phase 2, the R&R component was recently implemented. These reports are available at both the unit and medical center wide level. Candidates who are not hired will be kept in the database for future contacts. Phase 3 development will occur later this month. The utilization of a Professional Nursing database can yield positive outcomes. It creates a reporting mechanism for professional nurses to report and track clinical and professional activities, enhances communication across all levels of nursing in an organization and creates avenues for networking, use of consultants, and advanced practice nursing enhancing the practice of nurses at all levels in the organization.
