Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Perioperative Nurse Fast Track Orientation - Shared Decision-making, Nursing Excellence Maintaining excellence in perioperative nursing is challenging in the current environment of shortages of nurses in the specialty and the aging workforce. In 2005, Surgery Department at John Muir Walnut Creek created a recruitment and retention team-five intraoperative nurses, a surgical technologist and the Director-- to restructure the hiring process and orientation plan to rapidly identify nurses that can meet the performance standards of a high volume tertiary trauma center case load and while building on experienced nurses skills to transition to independent practice in all surgical specialties.

Steps to achieving excellence 1. Identification of essential traits of an experienced perioperative nurse. a. Use of AORN Standards of Clinical Practice and AORN Competency Statements in Perioperative Nursing to identify knowledge base of a competent perioperative nurse. b. Identification of personal traits congruent with department Code of Conduct. 2. Shared hiring decision with intraoperative nurses serving as the initial interview panel providing department leadership with recommendations. 3. Orientation restructured to maximize preceptor resources. a. Two week orientation phase with peer evaluations of nurse's scope of practice to determine if full orientation will be offered. b. Full orientation tailored to the known strengths and areas for development utilizing Dimensions of Care for each surgical specialty that clearly delineate the time frame/performance expectation a new hire would spend, increasing their proficiency from dependent to independent practitioner. 4. Commitment to preceptor excellence. a. Specialty certification is supported and expected of perioperative nurses - 52% CNOR...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
