Nursing professional development (NPD) practitioners are integral to implementing evidence-based practice (EBP). Research was conducted to describe NPD practitioners' EBP beliefs and competencies, frequency of implementing EBP, and perceptions of organizational culture and readiness for EBP. Relationships among NPD practitioner characteristics and organization outcomes were explored. Findings indicate that NPD practitioners must develop personal competence in EBP, become engaged in shared governance, collaborate with others, and use quality metrics to demonstrate the effectiveness and value of NPD activities...

Developing the capability to interpret nursing-sensitive quality indicators and other outcome data can be a challenge for registered nurses. An interactive, facilitator-led learning activity effectively addressed this issue in one organization. Registered nurses identified solutions to quality measures in an environment that engaged all levels of Benner's novice-to-expert continuum. The activity had positive outcomes, and learning was shown after the activity.

It has been nearly a year since the third edition of the Nursing Professional Development: Scope and Standards of Practice was released. During that time, many nursing professional development (NPD) departments across the nation have incorporated this foundational document into their practice. This column describes the activities of one NPD department to align their scope of practice with the NPD scope and standards and optimize their contributions to their organization.

Meagan White, Teresa Shellenbarger
E-learning provides an alternative approach to traditional professional development activities. A learning management system may help nursing professional development practitioners deliver content more efficiently and effectively; however, careful consideration is needed during planning and implementation. This article provides essential information in the selection and use of a learning management system for professional development.

Johanna Senyk, Beth A Staffileno
High preceptor turnover and mandates for cost efficiency in a rapidly changing healthcare environment require innovative approaches for developing and supporting nurse preceptors. Responding to new organizational strategic and cost containment initiatives, a quality improvement project was initiated that combined several evidence-based approaches to align traditional processes and programs. The resultant preceptor development program decreased costs and standardized processes. It also showed improved learning and preceptor satisfaction and increased educational, networking, and recognition opportunities...

Loretta Elder
The need to enhance the knowledge and skills of nurses caring for patients exhibiting signs of clinical deterioration has been documented. The literature has further supported the registered nurse as the key individual expected to recognize signs of clinical deterioration in the patient. The use of simulation as an effective teaching strategy has been well documented. The purpose of this project was to use simulation as an educational intervention to increase nurse knowledge, self-confidence, and competency when caring for patients exhibiting signs of clinical deterioration...

Rose Schecter, Joan Gallagher, Marybeth Ryan
This quasiexperimental pilot study explored the effect three consecutive adult health Dedicated Education Unit (DEU) clinical placements would have on baccalaureate nursing students' self-perception of growth in competence and confidence. A Likert-type Competence/Confidence Self-Assessment Scale was constructed as a pretest/posttest measure; competence and confidence posttest means increased in each course. The study provides nursing professional development practitioners with information about the alternative DEU concept, its effect on student outcomes, and benefits nursing staff can gain by participating in a DEU experience...

The purpose of this descriptive study was to identify the perceived barriers and facilitators to research utilization and evidence-based practice among nurses employed in a tertiary care children's hospital. Results revealed seven facilitator and six barrier themes that contribute to the understanding of the problem. The themes can be utilized by nursing professional development specialists to customize organizational infrastructure and educational programs.

A novel, sustainable digital badge-awarding online course was developed to prepare learners with familiarity of patient navigation. Learners offered favorable endorsement of essentially all elements of the program, especially the utility of the Blackboard learning management software program. Quality Matters standards provided a rigorous framework for the challenges of designing, implementing, and evaluating online curricula. Online education is an effective method for meeting the professional development needs of those seeking careers in care coordination/patient navigation...

Hospitals that expand or open new nursing units must provide training to staff providing patient care in the new space. Although expansion represents a significant investment and has substantial implications for patient care, there is little evidence to guide best practice. This article describes an approach to education, training, and orientation used by a large academic medical center in the United States, which included simulation. The results of a program evaluation are discussed, demonstrating the positive impact of this program on staff readiness and patient safety...
