Many, especially newer, nurses lack the experience for nuanced skillful communication at end of life. This study incorporated the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) Core Curriculum Communication module into a nurse residency program and tested for change in attitudes toward end-of-life (EOL) care. Researchers found significant differences in attitudes toward care of the dying before and after the ELNEC training, and between nurses with greater than and less than 5 years experience. Findings support that ELNEC education can significantly impact nurse attitudes about EOL care...

Retaining qualified nurses at the bedside can have a positive impact on patient care safety and quality. Without support and resilience, nurses may become emotionally exhausted within the first year of practice. Nursing professional development educators must recognize that new nurses often struggle with stressors related to nursing and take the appropriate steps to help them build resilience. This article describes an education project implemented to assist new nurses in developing their resilience. It describes the process and outcomes of a resiliency training program infused into one healthcare facility's nurse residency program and may inform nursing professional development educators planning similar programs...

Recruitment and retention of nurses into the perianesthesia environment remains an ongoing challenge in the face of a national nursing shortage. An insufficient supply of experienced critical care nurses exists to fulfill the staffing needs of perianesthesia departments. Literature describes the impact of successful orientation programs on retention and employee engagement. To compensate for the diminished candidate pool and to improve retention, a nurse residency program was created. The program develops non-critical care experienced nurses into postanesthesia care unit-specific critical care nurses over the course of 1 year...

Due to a flow of healthcare professionals and students from emerging to industrialized economies, healthcare systems in source countries are facing increasing threats to a people-centered quality of care. This study investigates the prevalence and underlying reasons for emigration intentions among physicians, nurses, residents, and medical students in Lithuania (total N = 1080). In our sample, 39% of students, 21% of residents, 12% of nurses, and 6% of physicians had decided to emigrate within the next two years...

As many hospitals are implementing residency programs for new graduate nurses, the utilization of high-fidelity simulation has become common. This pilot program compared simulation with participation of only new graduate nurses and new graduates with advanced care providers. Results found a statistically significant increase in knowledge of differing roles and skills in simulations that included both groups. Nursing professional development practitioners will find this helpful in designing residency programs for new graduate nurses...

BACKGROUND: Allied health care professionals can contribute meaningfully to goals-of-care discussions with seriously ill hospitalized patients and their families. We sought to explore the perspective of hospital-based allied health care professionals on their role in goals-of-care discussions and to identify barriers to their participation. METHODS: We surveyed allied health care professionals (social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, registered dietitians, speech-language pathologists and pharmacists) on internal medicine, hematology-oncology, medical oncology and radiation oncology wards at 2 tertiary care hospitals in Hamilton, Ontario, from April 2013 to May 2014...

The purpose of this literature review was to explore evaluation instruments used by nurse residency programs to evaluate outcomes. The 15 studies found yielded 26 instruments, and all instruments were subjective, dated, and varied in how they were used. Nursing professional development practitioners should use a combination of reliable, valid, and current evaluation methods to appraise their nurse residency programs in order to demonstrate program quality and effectiveness.

Hospitals are increasingly implementing residencies to help ensure that new graduate nurses are prepared to provide safe and effective care. At the Cleveland Clinic, a docudrama focused on ethical concerns in living with dementia was implemented into a 6-month pilot new graduate nurse residency program. Outcomes suggest that the docudrama helped nurse residents gain empathy and understanding through stepping into the lives of families experiencing dementia.
