New department educator

  1. Hi, everyone.
    Just started my first education position in a hospital department. Currently completing my MSN.
    Looking for any advice, resources, organizations?
    Any information would be appreciated.

    The Association for Nurses in Professional Development (ANPD) is the place to start. They have a good journal, online education for new staff educators, a great annual conference, etc.

    In addition to joining the national group ... there are also a few regional chapters. Check to see if there is one near you.

    Make friends and save Medscapes internet site as they put out the most current information, as well as JAMA, to always fall back on. And think now about how you want to present information to nurses as we are sometimes hard to convince to try things a new way as evidence-based practice suggests.
