Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Informal expert bedside nurse leaders naturally rise to the surface. The Advanced Clinician (AC) role was developed to encourage and promote nurses. The role allows for leadership qualities to emerge and at the same time taps into the nurse's clinical expertise in the unit's day-to-day operations. The AC role incorporates team building and collaboration with peers from similar levels of care for consistency of project implementation. To ensure the success of the AC program a three-phase process was developed for nurses' appointment in their new role. Phase One (Residency): The nurse who is interested in a AC position submits a letter of intent and a transfer form to the manager of the unit. As part of the process, the applicant will need to complete a project before proceeding to the next phase. The project is based on the applicant's passion, skill set, and needs of the unit. It is the applicant's responsibility to complete the project with assistance from a senior AC mentor. The project will be completed in 30 days. The manager then evaluates the project and gives recommendations to the leadership team to proceed (or not) to the next phase. Phase Two (Peer Interview): The leadership team will then coordinate the peer interview. Once the interview packets have been reviewed and a decision made by the Leadership Team, the manager will meet with the nurse and offer the position if appropriate. In addition, the manager discusses with the newly promoted AC their strengths and upcoming goals for the year. The manager will discuss areas of development/improvements based on feedback from the peers and the project evaluation. As a new leader, the AC will report to and receive all annual evaluations by the manager. Phase Three (Announce & Celebrate): Formal announcement and celebration of the newly promoted AC are conducted at the unit level and throughout hospital. The AC program has been highly successful throughout the hospital.
