Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Over the last 18 months, nurses and nursing leaders at Saint Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, WI developed an innovative Critical Care Nurse Residency program. The goal of the program is to bridge the knowledge and skill gap for graduate nurses or nurses who possess little or no experience in the critical care setting. The program strives to increase recruitment and retention of critical care nurses. The Critical Care Nurse Residency program features three phases over an eight month time span. During this time, the nurses receive instruction through classroom didactics, simulation laboratories, online self-study programs, intranet classrooms and clinical preceptorships. Education is provided by an interdisciplinary team of direct patient care nurses, nursing leaders, physicians, and pharmacists, all coordinated by a full time nurse educator. The initial phase of the program provides new and experienced nurses with an overview of both hospital specific and universal competencies, including quality and safety initiatives. The second phase includes orientation to the Medical/Surgical units. This phase builds on assessment, prioritization, medication management and critical thinking skills. Preceptorships are established with experienced nurses. The third phase covers orientation to the Critical Care units. Preceptorships include incorporation of critical care skills and application of previously learned knowledge and behaviors. Early outcomes have demonstrated an increase in cohort social support, confidence in clinical practice, positive communication skills, and greater understanding of disease processes with labs, medications, and plans of care. The program will be evaluated on workforce metrics, and future applicability to other settings.
