Whatwould be your first step?
Tobegin with, we would start by making an evaluation of the currentsituation at hand to establish the primary cause that needs aninstant address. It would be beneficial in proving that a problemexists and a solution must be developed soon. Further, this wouldbring about the crafting of a program that would enable bridging ofthe gap that has to be established to enhance adherence to the setvalues and standards. As well, this would lead to the formulation ofefficient ways that would guarantee a return on investment by provingthat the programs would accrue benefits to the institution.Competencies would be enhanced and last but not least, retention ofthe already available personnel would be realized out of the program(Goode,et al. 2013).
Aligningof the new residency program with the organization’s mission andcore value
Someof the ways to align the program with the organization values andmission would be to incorporate professionalism together withquality. It is with this sense that while developing the program thepatients should be of paramount consideration since their welfare isthe main goal of the institution. Furthermore, the program would layits foundation on the set ethics and standards of practice to avoidbreaching them but rather be in unison and enhance the ultimate goalset.
Justificationof the new nurse residency program to include maternal child,critical care, and emergency department nurses
Coveringareas, there would be a need to prove that a gap exists which needsto be filled. It concerns low productivity and unavailability ofcritical thinking abilities to deduce solutions to the variousscenarios. Additionally, insufficient technical skills need to provebeyond doubt of their existence that could undermine theinstitution`s mission and make it unable to realize it. Lastly, highturnover rates in the various fields also need to be demonstrated. Toraise a red flag on the dire need of the program to curb all thosesetbacks and thereby enhance smooth operations within theorganization in the undertaking of its activities.
Proposedoutcome measures to determine the success of the proposed program
Toascertain the success of the program, measures that would beincorporated and used include evaluating the turnover of the nurses.It would lead to a determination whether the rate is either high orlow. In a low turnover rate, the program would prove to be a success,but in a high turnover rate, it would be the contrary. Anothermeasure that can be employed would be to determine the prosperity ofthe program as well as the productivity. It is about the criticalthinking abilities applied by the nurses to come up with solutions tovarious circumstances and their equipping with the necessary tools toenhance prosperity in their respective fields (Olson-Sitki,& Forbes, 2012).
Howto make the business case
Tocome up with the business case, we would demonstrate that the programrealizes a return on investment in a particular period. It is in thissense that we would prove that the impact that realized would be muchhigher and beneficial to the organization. It can be illustrated byshowing how productivity would be improved through research andreports and this would go a long way in enhancing clarity on the needfor the program and have substantial evidence to prove the matter.What`s more, there would also be a demonstration of who the benefitswould accrue to all with the primary goal of ensuring the validity ofthe program and receive support and approval from all the quarters(Trepanier,et al. 2012).
