Synopsis:
As the U.S. population ages, healthcare is shifting from acute care environments to post-acute and community settings. New nurses in particular lack the specialized knowledge required for chronic care and gerontological care and are often unprepared to transition into post-acute settings. 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. This indispensable book also 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 The application model provided in Developing a Residency in Post- Acute Care is fully adaptable for multiple post-acute settings. This resource enables instructors to enhance competence and confidence in new nurses-not simply re-teach materials learned in school. In the end, better onboarding can lead to significant improvements in cost, quality of care, and nurse retention rates.
