The successful orientation of new employees facilitates their transition to the complex and demanding world of perioperative nursing. Whether a nurse is a recent graduate or an experienced nurse who has recently joined the facility or department, a new nurse benefits from a transition period during which new skills, processes, and concepts can be learned. Training should offer new employees the opportunity to develop competency, experience, collegial relationships, clinical judgment, and, overall, specialized knowledge for application in the clinical setting...

INTRODUCTION: Residents and faculty in emergency medicine (EM) residency programs might be unaware of the professional and legal risks associated with the use of social media (SM). The objective of this study was to identify and characterize the types and reported incidence of unprofessional SM behavior by EM residents, faculty, and nurses and the concomitant personal and institutional risks. METHODS: This multi-site study used an 18-question survey tool that was distributed electronically to the leaders of multiple EM residency programs, members of the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors (CORD), and the residents of 14 EM programs during the study period May to June 2013...

OBJECTIVE: Research on nurse residency programs (NRPs) typically focuses on retention within the 1-year NRP or perhaps an additional year beyond. Few have evaluated the long-term impact of NRP, and none have adopted a longitudinal approach to follow cohorts over time. This study, conducted in a large urban academic medical center (AMC), examines the effects of the NRPs on former nurse residents (NRs) in 8 cohorts (2005-2012) and compares those who left the institution with those who remain...

BACKGROUND: Teamwork and communication are critical elements of safe and effective patient care. Standardized communication tools have been implemented in many health care organizations, but little is known about attitudes and perceptions of assertion, the willingness to "speak up," by nurses and physicians at an academic pediatric institution. METHODS: We conducted 6 focus groups with nurses, residents, and attending physicians using a standardized semistructured focus group guide to promote discussion...

As the impact of health care reform continues to evolve, the movement of patients from acute to post-acute settings will continue to expand. Currently, the turnover and retention of RNs nationally in long-term care is at an all-time high, with a median turnover rate of 50% for RNs. Workforce instability is a prime contributor to poor patient outcomes, increased costs, and a dissatisfied nursing workforce. Therefore, the New Jersey Action Coalition determined that the Institute of Medicine's Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health recommendation to implement nurse residency programs across settings would be a priority for New Jersey...

METHODS: New-graduate nurses in a hospital NRP participated in this nonexperimental, descriptive, correlational, study...

Nurse residency programs have been adopted by health care organizations to assist new graduate nurses with daily challenges such as intense working environments, increasing patient acuity, and complex technologies. Overall, nurse residency programs are proven beneficial in helping nurses transition from the student role to independent practitioners and bedside leaders. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of residency programs on leadership skills of new Saudi graduate nurses who completed a residency program compared to new Saudi graduate nurses who did not participate in residency programs...

BACKGROUND: Neonates in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) undergo a multitude of painful and stressful procedures during the first days of life. Stress from this pain can lead to neurodevelopmental problems that manifest in later childhood and should be prevented. OBJECTIVE: To determine the number of painful procedures performed per day for each neonate, to verify documentation of painful procedures performed, and to, subsequently, note missed opportunities for providing pain relief to neonates...
