Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In 2004, 2 Magnet facilities collaborated with 14 area hospitals to develop a Medical-Surgical Educational Consortium to encourage staff nurses in Med/Surg areas to become certified in this specialty area. Membership from each hospital committed resources and support to provide Med/surg education opportunities and bi-annual review course for the preparing to take a Med/Surg certification exam. All staff nurses from any consortium hospital are allowed to attend the review course and educational offerings at no cost. This has increased the number of Med/Surg certified nurses in this Midwestern city by over 100. The goal was to provide this to the community so that it would elevate the expertise and quality of med/surg nursing as a whole in the city. Regardless of the institution where the nurse was employed, there is a higher level of pride and commitment in the Med/Surg nurse community. Since the origination of this project, a review course has been presented 4 times and every other month a 2 hour continuing education program presented directed to the target population of the med/surg nurse. A Med/surg group has also been formed to network with nurses in the community from a 250 mile radius. This has assisted with the goal of having more certified nurses providing care in our city.
