Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Oral communications and speaking skills are highly coveted in the business world and nursing is no exception. Communication skills are vital to nursing today. At times we are unable to communicate vital information that can defend our position as staff nurses to our coworkers and physician colleagues. This can be a denigrating experience for seasoned nurses as well as the beginning nurse. A sense of empowerment is gained in effective communication. Confidence and the ability to gather your thoughts and articulate appropriately can defuse potential difficult communication situations and lead to improved patient satisfaction. As a Magnet facility, we encourage and provide opportunities for presenting at local, state, national, and international nursing conferences. Magnet force 14 speaks to professional development. Development of speaking skills is a reflection of personal growth that spills over to the professional arena. The development of this skill empowers the nurse to stand in front of an audience and skillfully present. Our goal is to provide the staff level nurse with all the tools they require for professional development. As part of nursing professional development, we have developed a program entitled, Nurse Speak, to address this skill deficit. This program is based upon the positive experiences of several nurses who joined Toastmasters International (toastmasters.org). A portion of each Magnet Champion meeting is dedicated to Nurse Speak. The program began with a presentation - Fear of Public Speaking. This fear is prevalent and ranks above fear of death. Our program offers information and tips on public speaking as well as opportunities to practice before a non-judgmental audience that will provide constructive positive feedback. We have had nurses deliver their PowerPoint presentations at Nurse Speak for practice prior to presenting at a national or international conference. Our goal is to expand the program beyond the Magnet Champions. We...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.] REFERENCES: Buback, D. (2004).
