Abstract:
Purpose: In 2007 Sarasota Memorial Health Care System (SMHCS) create a new Nurse Residency Unit to improve the recruitment and retention of recently graduated, newly licensed nurses into a challenging acute care environment that was experiencing a 26% new graduate turnover rate, as well as enhance the retention of senior medical surgical nurses.
Method: A structure, process, and outcome approach was taken utilizing Benner's Novice to Expert framework.
In October, 2007, SMHCS temporarily closed a 24-bed medical units and recruited 20 veteran RN staff members - all of whom shared a vision to teach. These nurses were given intensive education in mentoring, team building, and precepting. Three months later, the unit reopened as "The New Nurse Residency Unit." The new unit, as well as a New Nurse Graduate Task Force, provides an unprecedented structure for graduate nurses, as well as outcome tracking.
The new unit has a Clinical Manager and Clinical Educator permanently on staff and 20 veteran preceptors. Since it opened 1 year ago, the unit has helped successfully introduce 53 new graduate nurses to the acute-care environment. The New Nurse Graduate Task Force helps coordinate new graduate nurse recruitment while reducing "lag time" - defined as the time between a staff nurse leaving the organization and a new nurse taking over.
Processes for candidate and preceptor selection, matching, and evaluation will be discussed. Processes for new graduate evaluation, orientation design and progress monitoring will also be discussed.
Findings/Conclusion:
Retention has increased in both the new graduate and experienced medical-surgical nurse populations. There is a wait list for the new graduate residency unit. Vacancy rate is zero.
Discussion:
Will include the outcomes being tracked such as new graduate, preceptor and clinical manager satisfaction; Lag time for filling positions, and vacancy rate.
