Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, November 7, 2015 and Sunday, November 8, 2015: Introduction.Nurse externship programs were initially developed by healthcare institutions as a recruitment tool for new nurses. Literature has demonstrated the positive outcomes of the program on the participants and healthcare institutions but during times of economic difficulties, health care institutions discontinue the program. A literature review revealed the studies that demonstrate the value of the program are limited to the recruitment phase and the 2-year retention of the newly graduated nurses. A recent research study demonstrated the long-term outcomes of the program relative to RN retention over 5 years and adherence to quality indicators. More importantly the research found a negative correlation between participation in a nurse externship program and extension of unit based orientation. The average number of hours of extension was also identified thereby leading to the development of a return on investment formula for the program. Purpose. The purpose of this learning activity is to present the results of the recent study along with practical ways to utilize the findings in developing, implementing, sustaining, evaluating the outcomes and improving nurse externship programs. Outline.
