BACKGROUND: Hospitals are constantly involved in quality improvement and research projects investing considerable money, time, and effort in supporting these projects; however, there is not always a strong enough focus on publishing the results. The challenge lies in engaging clinicians to publish their work. One of the hallmarks of the clinical nurse specialist is mentoring, and this has led to the creation of our Inspiring Writing in Nursing (IWIN) program. PURPOSE: The goal of IWIN cohort was to engage and promote publication submissions from frontline clinicians...

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: Currently, orientation for clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) in the Baltimore region is based on past practices: facility-specific or position-specific. A Chesapeake Bay affiliate work group identified a need to develop a theory-driven, competency-based program and tool to guide orientation and ongoing professional development reflecting the scope of CNS practice. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT/PROGRAM: The tool incorporates Benner's concepts of novice-to-expert competence levels, guides progressive development of the CNS, and has relevant assessment metrics that highlight contributions to the patient, nurse, and system...
