    Hi,

    I am a newbie. I have been a staff educator of six busy med/surg units for 2 years. I am interested in any suggestions on how to reach the 100 percentile for inservicing. We have night educators who help with the night staff which is a big in reaching that % and I too do a lot of one-to-one staff in-servicing. Any other suggestions? Also, any suggestions on keeping orientees awake and alert during hospital orientation classes? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance

    Ah yes - the never-ending quest to get 'rears in seats' - I've been there. If your supervisor is the source of your 100% goal, perhaps you need to educate him/her that successful education is measured by outcomes, not process or even roll calls. At any rate, you need to re-define the "100%" criteria as successful achievement of learner objectives rather than attendance.

    Classroom education is only really necessary if the content requires physical presence (return demonstration, group activity, etc). There are many more effective ways to achieve learner objectives. Self-study, poster presentations, portfolios, even podcasts! You are only limited by the technology & resources available.

    Don't hesitate to pm me if I can assist you in determining some alternative ways to facilitate staff education.

    Thanks a million for your insight. I have to turn in percentages of the nurses inserviced using the ratio of nurses done and the number of nurses on the unit.
    Your quote: "DON'T exhaust yourself trying to correct behavioral & attitudinal issues via educational programs. If they know what and how to do it but aren't doing it --- It's a managment issue, not an educational need." was a godsend. I was truly on the verge of burnout as I am covering 4 med/surg units. I will take you up on your offer to help me in determining alternate way to facilitate staff education.

    Thanks

    I have just accepted the role as clinical nurse educator for a visiting nursing agency in Ontario Canada. I will work full time between two divisions. This is a totally new chapter in my 26 years of nursing and even though I am excited for the challenge, I am also concerned that I have bitten off more than I can chew. I appreciate all of the bits of advice that this board has to offer!

    Please tell me...what is the NNSDO ? I am a part-time RN nursing instructor (clinical), and one of the LTACHs has asked me to consider coming "on-board" as Staff Development nurse. MOre than OSHA mandates, I"m sure. Vendor inservices I utilized as a director of Clinical Case Management to keep my nurses in-the -loop. I don't yet know the scope of the facilities expectations and how a SD role plays into all.

    I have been a clinical staff educator for 8 months. Teach clinical and non-clinical staff classes. I have just discovered this site and the NNSDO-hope to become certified through ANCC in Professional Development when I get enough CEUs and 4,000 total hours in PSD.

    Hi there- I am the educator for a Senior Living Organization...1 nursing home, 230 beds; 4 assisted living facilities, totalling about 150 beds, and 13 apartment buildings scattered all over the St. Louis metropolitan area. We have between 550 and 600 employees and I am a department of one!!! I do most of the new staff orientation and all annual training plus I am the employee health nurse. EEK! I'm working hard to get a computer based education system for the annual compliance training which will free my time up to do more need-based training with the nursing staff, which are the bulk of the employees. The way we get compliance is that they cannot get their annual eval checked off until they complete their training and PPD. Wait too long and they get taken off the schedule until they comply. This applies to everyone, right up to administrators! That only works if you have a CEO who is a believer (mine is a nurse also.) NNSDO is a great resource, highly recommend it.

    I have just been hired for a newly created position - Manager of Learning and Development (aka SDN by non-nurse). Is anyone else in here NOT a nurse.

    I work for a not for profit CCRC with 100+ beds. Any words of wisdom.

    If you are doing any training after a meal (lunch, dinner) good idea to have them stretch, standup, anything to get them moving no more than 20 minutes after the meal.

    Could use a large beach ball and throw it from person to person and the person receiving the ball has to answer the next question.
