interviewer name date interviewee name date

interview protocol

1. discuss how you utilize and value the knowledge of other disciplines to solve patient care problems. what team members are you most often engaged with, and what is the unique expertise of each?

lab, pharmacy, radiology, doctors, secretaries, dietary, housekeeping, maintenance, social work, security, not necessarily in order of frequency of interaction with nursing.

i think their unique expertise is evident. i interact a lot with social work, in particular, as they help with discharge planning, arranging durable medical equipment (hospital bed, oxygen) and funding/arranging for home care.

2. describe how you demonstrate appropriate teambuilding and collaborative strategies when working with interprofessional teams.

i guess i just try to be courteous and approachable, professional, helpful, clear about what i need, give them enough time to work, not expect instantaneous help - unless the situation demands it - like i need an icu bed now or a replacement dinner tray right away.

3. how do you see care applied within your particular nursing practice situation?

not sure what you mean. care by me and other nurses? or other?

4. describe the roles of different nurses (e.g., clinical nurse specialist, nurse executive, bedside nurse) in promoting safe and quality outcomes of care for diverse populations.

a nurse exec has to be concerned that staff are properly licensed and inserviced, although perhaps hr verifies licensure and the educators see to the verification and updating of skills.

the exec is concerned that policies and procedures are being followed and are currently acceptable by jcaho, cms, other payors and regulators. she has to make sure patients are not maltreated by her staff or that discipline is swift and certain, also fair, should something go wrong.

she has to deal with unions, with administrators, with the board of directors, with managers, with other department heads.

she should take care of her nurses but is working for the hospital. not an easy balancing act. i say "she", although surely there are male cne's/don's.

bedside nurse - is fully responsible for the moment to moment care of his or her own patients; often, this means supervising nursing assistants (aides, unlicensed helpers, techs), and lvn's.

she has to coordinate all activities, meds, treatments, tests, procedures, therapies, meals, bathing, etc. for her patients. she charts, she takes off new orders, she is the doctors' eyes, ears, and hands and must notice and alert the doctor of changes in the patient's status. this is the nurse who keeps you alive. the nurse at the bedside. today, she is required to be not only the foregoing, but also a concierge, an entertainer, a miracle worker, a people pleaser, and a caregiver to the families and friends visiting her patients. this is the nurse who gets mandated (ordered) to work a double shift, this is the nurse who burns out because no human being can possibly fill these shoes for very long. she has to make sure aides are doing what they are supposed to be doing and not goofing off, she has to be very, very strong inside in order to get everyone to do their jobs and not hate her or try to sabotage her in the process.

it could mean being a charge nurse. ideally, a charge nurse does not have her own patients to care for, or has maybe only 1 or 2 easy ones. she should be concerned with staffing for the next shift (unless a clerk does this or the nursing office does it) and with changing staffing needs for her present shift.

the charge nurse should be experienced with nursing and should know the patients on her floor, or at least be experienced in that type of nursing, that is, if it's ophthalmology floor, she should know ophthalmology. she is a resource for other bedside nurses. she can help each bedside nurse with a dressing, a feeding, hang an ivpb, do a blood sugar, go for supplies, restock a treatment or med cart, take off orders and inform the appropriate nurse of the new orders, help families find blankets, beverages, etc., answer the phone and call lights, help bathe, transfer, admit, discharge, and toilet patients, enter into the computer the labs or tests to be done, and do 1,001 million other things that need to be done q shift.

5. describe how you apply quality improvement processes to implement patient safety initiatives and monitor outcomes. how are nurse-sensitive indicators monitored in your institution?

sorry, i'm blank on this. i just plod on, day by day.

6. describe how nurses facilitate patient-centered care in your institution and practice. how are patient-centered care and advocacy similar to and different from each other?

7. describe a situation in your practice in which you could see that the principles of ethics, professional nursing standards, altruism, and human dignity affected your nursing practice or a specific outcome.

8. describe a patient care initiative in your organization that improved outcomes and enhanced cost effectiveness in care delivery.

9. describe how nursing research has improved or changed a particular aspect of patient care in your institution. how is the research project different from quality improvement activities?

10. describe how information technology and patient data are used in your institution for ethical, effective clinical decision making and how patient confidentiality is protected.

11. describe a particular situation in which you have been involved with the roles and responsibilities of a major healthcare regulatory agency that affected patient care quality, workplace safety, healthcare reimbursement, or the scope of nursing practice.

12. compare nursing practice roles for the registered nurse, clinical nurse leader, advanced practice registered nurse, and clinical nurse specialist in your clinical setting. describe specific differences in their duties, knowledge, and abilities.

i will come back to this after while.

This makes my BSN program busy work look like a walk in the park. I can just see walking around facilities trying to get people to take the time to deal with this.

Off topic but somewhat related: You can see here what's involved in getting a BSN. Then imagine how much writing you must do to get a Masters. So, how on earth, did an old nurse manager of mine (BSN, MSN) get through all that and still not have decent grammar or know how to spell??? :confused: :uhoh3:
