Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Initiated in the fourth quarter 2004, the Parent Shift Program (PSP) encourages RNs to reenter the workforce without meeting off-shift, weekend, holiday, or full shift requirements, and with a minimal monthly work requirement. Didactic and clinical orientation is provided. Thus, typical barriers of reentering the hospital RN workforce are minimized. Study aims were to (a) examine personal motivating factors to join the PSP, (b) understand hospital drivers and incentives to join/remain in the PSP, (c) characterize proposed and actual program advantages to nursing practice, and (d) examine changes in patient satisfaction and nurse vacancy rates from pre to post program implementation. Methods: Using a Likert scale survey design RNs were recruited during orientation and completed two anonymous surveys, upon hire (N = 34) and four months after hire (N = 54). Nurse Managers (N = 26) completed one anonymous survey four months after the first PSP hire. Patient Satisfaction and financial data were analyzed by comparing May-October 2004 with July-December 2005 routinely collected data for nursing units with the most PSP personnel. Results: Descriptive statistics will provide means and frequencies of RN demographics, personal motivators and environment incentives; "excellent" patient satisfaction scores; nurse vacancy rates; and perception of orientation as adequate. Frequencies of environmental incentives and how the PSP RN was used will be compared from orientation to four months post hire. Conclusions: This innovative program has the potential to promote teamwork and ease burdens associated with expanding hospital units and a shrinking RN workforce. References: Erickson, ST.
