New STTI book provides practical approach to retaining nurses in post-acute care
Authors present tools and resources for nurse educators to train new and existing staff members
As the U.S. population ages, healthcare is shifting from acute care environments to post-acute and community settings. Applying the best practices for post-acute care can help keep talented nurses in the workforce and lead to better patient outcomes.
Developing a Residency in Post-Acute Care offers practical curricula based on an innovative and successful nurse residency model that positions staff educators and preceptors to support new nurses as they enter post-acute settings. Rutgers School of Nursing authors Edna Cadmus, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, Susan Salmond, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, Linda Hassler, DNP, RN, GCNS-BC, FNGNA, Nancy Bohnarczyk, MA, RN, CNE, and Katherine Kuren Black, MSN, RN-BC, share their knowledge to enhance current nurses’ competence and confidence in post-acute care settings.
Published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), this
indispensable book provides tools and resources for nurse educators to use in developing and training new and existing staff, including:
• Lesson plans, objectives, and outlines
• Detailed case studies
• Activities geared toward adult learners
• Participant evaluation methods
• Strategies for presenting material
• References and additional resources
“When we were researching nurse residency programs, there was none on [long-term care] residency,” said Linda Hassler. “We had to start from scratch to develop our program, so we thought it would be a great idea to disseminate it through a book. The book is a ‘tool kit’ for implementing a nurse residency program. The lesson plans are filled with action learning, websites, and resources to teach the program.”
The book is available at www.nursingknowledge.org/sttibooks.
