Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Nursing Leadership at our facility has anticipated a shortage of perioperative nurses. In response to this need, a strategic plan was created which included the formation of a collaborative relationship with a University School of Nursing in order to train senior level nursing students in the area of perioperative nursing. The goal of this innovative cohort is to provide students with real experiences and training in perioperative settings. It is anticipated that this exposure will result in the recruitment of nurses to this specialized area after graduation. The University's Placement Coordinator and the hospital's Clinical Program Coordinator consulted with the Nursing Education to develop the curriculum and clinical rotation that would support the cohort objectives. Qualitative data was collected in the form of student logs and an end of program evaluation. The Clinical Program Coordinator also met with the students at regular intervals to provide opportunities for mentoring them in problem solving techniques and critical thinking skills. The students were provided classroom orientation to optimize their skills in the perioperative setting including: basic EKG, emergency management, sterile technique and the responsibilities of the perioperative nurse. They oriented in preadmission testing, the cardiac catheterization lab, and the endoscopy areas. Five weeks in the operating room setting allowed the students to observe procedures, prepare patients pre and post procedure and identify various nursing roles. They completed their rotation in the post anesthesia care and critical care units. Our staff nurses served as the students' clinical preceptors. Each student was expected to participate in the unit specific perioperative activities. These activities included: patient assessment, medication administration, preparation and maintenance of the sterile field, utilizing strict aseptic technique and post procedure monitoring. To date, two cohorts have...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
