Improving Retention Rates Of New Graduate Nurses, Rebekah B. Littlefield, Courtney Kelsey, Sophia Howrey

Non-Thesis Student Work

The purpose of this project is to explore if pairing (P) new grad nurses (I) with a similar personality nurse preceptor (C) as compared to a randomly assigned nurse preceptor (O) improves retention rates (T) over a 24-month period? Nursing has been recognized as a highly stressful profession that can lead to early career burnout. New nurses have reported an intention to leave the profession due to high-stress levels from unrealistic career expectations. Studies have shown that having a supported, planned, and consistent residency program for new nurses will increase retention of the nurses at the beginning of their careers. …

Men In Nursing: Implications For The Profession And Broader Workforce Trends, David K. Palmer, Nancy Stuart, Michelle Fleig-Palmer

Mountain Plains Business Conference

Typically,nursing has been considered a gendered profession dominated by women. As traditionally blue-collar, male-dominated occupations such as assembly-line work have declined,the percentage of men in the nursing profession has increased to 12%. This is not a recent phenomenon;a significant percentage of men served as nurses up through the 1800’s.

In this analysis of men serving in the nursing workforce, we begin with a historical review and then discuss implications for the nursing profession, e.g., recruitment,education,practice, retention,and culture, as well as implications for the broader labor market, e.g., compensation trends by industry and gender

Reducing The Stigma Of Nurses In Recovery: Substance Use Disorder And Alternative-To-Discipline Program Education For Nurses, Daniel Paul Del Toro, Pamela Hardesty

Graduate Publications and Other Selected Works - Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

Decades of previous studies suggest that approximately 10-15% of all actively licensed nurses in the United States may be impaired by or in recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, medical professionals are experiencing unprecedented amounts of stress, fatigue and emotional distress that when coupled with poor coping mechanisms and easily accessible addictive substances may result in an increased risk for developing substance use disorder. By providing education to nurses regarding substance use disorder (SUD) and alternative to discipline programs (ADP), previous studies have shown that the risk of nurses developing SUD can …

Emergency Medicine Provider Comfort With Physician Orders For Life Sustaining Treatment (Polst) Advanced Directive, Katherine Briggie, Kaitlin Sweeney, Shannon Findlay, Hao Wang, Juan Pagan-Ferrer, Dan Miller, Sangil Lee

Journal of Geriatric Emergency Medicine

Background

Emergency departments (ED) across the United States see many patients with advanced disease nearing the end of life. ED providers make many important decisions that impact a patient’s hospital course, including resuscitation decisions. When patients’ preferences are not known, treatment in the ED frequently defaults to maximally aggressive care. The Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) form has been shown to lead to more goal-concordant care for these patients by providing detailed instructions regarding end-of-life interventions, made by the patient and/or medical decision maker.

Methods

In this needs assessment study, we aimed to determine the level of awareness …
