Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: You want me to stand on stage and speak to a hundred nurses? By Nurses for Nurses became our goal for Nursing Grand Rounds (NGR) based on Nurses as Teachers. Our Magnet gap analysis revealed that the business benefits of service lines had also enhanced the isolation of our operational silos! NGR would promote best practice sharing and bring nurses together in a common forum. Administrative support was obtained for lunch and a contact hour. Over the next year, the series expanded to include Diversity Rounds on the 1st Wednesday and an Ethics Rounds on the 4th Wednesday. Maturation in the planning and coordination has included linkages with our shared governance structure for potential volunteer nurse speakers and case studies for presentation, as well as scheduled time for preparation and attendance. Sustainability is attributed to timely relevant topics and the focus on evidence-based nursing. Successful on-stage debuts by novice presenters have encouraged others. Weekly rounds for nursing, diversity, ethics and now Magnet are part of our culture. Programs are on video and available for independent study contact hour credit. Our Magnet culture has improved and each program series has a 6-12 month calendar of offerings. Weekly attendance averages 100-125, session ratings are high and overall attendance has exceeded 5000. Other outcomes include an enhanced image of nursing, interdisciplinary and community relationships, and evidence-based practice and research for quality of care. References: ANA. (2004).
