Abstract:

A Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Registered Nurse (RN) Fellowship was developed in a large teaching hospital to increase RN retention, increase professional certification, and encourage the development of evidence based projects by staff nurses. In 2015, four nurses new to blood and marrow transplant were accepted for a one year fellowship after the completion of their orientation. Once a month, they attended an 8-hour educational program to increase their knowledge on blood and marrow transplantation. Educational sessions consisted of slide presentations, skill validation, case study presentations, observations and shadowing experiences, and independent studies. These fellows identified two opportunities for improvement, reviewed the literature, and developed evidence based projects for their patient population. At the completion of the fellowship, retention rate remains at 100% (N=4) and all are preparing for certification. Two nurses developed a protocol on the nursing management of skin graft versus host disease and another two developed a research proposal on aromatherapy which will be submitted to the institution’s internal review board.
