3 PA G E3 I ntroductory letter Dear PIN Grant Partners, Thank you for partnering with us to address the nursing shortage challenges in Oklahoma. Despite current economic trends, the past 18 months have brought a wealth of opportunities and accomplishments to our PIN program. Since the program was launched, several grant goals have been accomplished. Sheryl McLain, MS Scholarships ($10,000 each) were awarded to eight nursing educators interested in obtaining their master s of science in nursing degree. Half of the eight individuals selected currently teach in nursing programs at a rural technology center, while the other four individuals serve as nurse faculty in Oklahoma s rural community colleges. This was the first step toward increasing the number of master s prepared nursing faculty in Oklahoma. In order to increase nurses job satisfaction and retention rates, course content was developed to provide six leadership and management courses to nursing leaders from three rural regions of Oklahoma. These courses were provided using two different methods of teaching distance education workshops and self-paced, Webbased learning. The distance education leadership and management series was launched in fall 2008, followed by the launch of the e-platform courses in spring Community partners, students and faculty gave positive feedback about the course content and their delivery methods. Pam Crawford, MBA, RN, NEA-BC As the demand increases for well-qualified and experienced nurses, a higher level of leadership, knowledge, critical-thinking skills and abilities will be needed more than ever before. The PIN grant is significantly contributing towards meeting these needs. With continued support from our partners, who are essential to our success, we can better equip and provide the education needed by Oklahoma nurses to ensure their success in both the education and provider settings. Sincerely, Sheryl McLain, MS Executive Director Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Center Pam Crawford, MBA, RN, NEA-BC PIN Grant Project Director Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Center
4 4PA G E Delivering these programs using online and distance learning technology has increased the number of nurses and nurse educators able to participate in balancing work and family commitments. This will inevitably result in the production of more nurses needed to provide essential patient care in our community and will reduce employee turnover, while increasing satisfaction and retention rates. Brian Woodliff Chief Executive Officer Tahlequah City Hospital Our scholarship recipients, who were each highly praised by those recommending them for the PIN program, represent the future of nursing education in Oklahoma. They, among others in their field, hold the promise of having the most positive impact on health care in Oklahoma by educating tomorrow s nursing workforce. Sheryl McLain, MS Executive Director Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Center The purpose of Oklahoma s PIN grant project Objectives To award scholarships to current nurse educators from three rural regions of Oklahoma so that they can obtain their master s of science in nursing education To deliver leadership & management courses to nurses in three rural regions of Oklahoma via distance education To provide a series of online leadership & management courses to nurses in three rural regions of Oklahoma Intended Outcomes Increased the number of masters prepared nurse educators in Oklahoma Improved nurse educator competencies, based on the National League of Nursing (NLN CNE criteria for leadership & management development) Increased the retention of staff nurses & nurse leaders Enhanced nurse leader & employer satisfaction
5 PA G E5 The greatest advantage of the PIN Grant program for our organization was the training. It provided participating nurse managers with confidence in their ability to lead and emphasized their importance in our health care system. The class encouraged nurse managers to play a bigger role in trying to shape the workplace by finding ways to build positive relationships with both the nursing and the physician staff. Rhonda Stanley, RN, BSN Nursing Advisor, Health Services Cherokee Nation As a leader of nursing practice, I have learned that recruitment and retention is heavily impacted through differentiating the work environment. This shift is most easily maintained through building leaders. This investment is the real business of chief nursing officers the rewards are impressive! Jackye Ward, MSN, RN, CNAA-BC Vice President of Patient Care Services & CNO Valley View Regional Hospital (VVRH) The nursing shortage concern The Challenge Nurses comprise the largest sector of the health care workforce, and their competence is critical to keeping patients safe and healthy. When people are most vulnerable experiencing chest pains in a hospital emergency department, recuperating from stroke in a skilled nursing facility, learning to care for a newborn or managing a chronic condition in their own home nurses are the health care providers that individuals are most likely to encounter, spend the greatest amount of time with, and depend upon for their recovery. The quality of our health care system relies upon a sufficient supply of well-qualified, educated and highly skilled nurses. In some communities around the country, the nursing shortage has become so severe that it threatens patient care and safety, while impacting health care costs and patient outcomes. Partners Investing in Nursing s Future has helped regional foundations and other organizations, such as the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Center, support and create local solutions to address the nursing shortage. As nursing shortages vary across communities, so must the solutions. The Impact Oklahoma is expected to have a shortage of more than 3,000 nurses, 500 lab technicians, 400 physical therapists, 300 surgical technologists and 200 occupational therapists by In addition to these professions listed above, there is also a great need for respiratory therapists, imaging technologists, pharmacists, emergency responders, mental health care professionals, and medical and laboratory technologists. The PIN program is a unique collaboration of the philanthropic community to foster innovations that help address the nursing crisis.
6 6PA G E The PIN Grant personally helped me reach my goal of obtaining a master s degree in nursing, that I would have probably not have been able to do myself. They were very supportive, and great to work with during the past year and a half. I also had set a goal in my mind that I wanted to have a master s, and they made it possible for me. I will always be grateful and hope to give back to my nursing profession as they have given me a great opportunity to succeed. Christy Boswell, RN, MS Practical Nursing Instructor Indian Capital Technology Center Tahlequah, OK The solution Led by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Northwest Health Foundation, the PIN Grant program encourages local foundations to act as catalysts in developing grassroots strategies to establish a stable, adequate nursing workforce. To help develop solutions and lead efforts within the region, the Oklahoma program was awarded a two-year grant of $250,000, which was combined with an additional $125,000 from local partners. Pictured left to right: Dr. Carol Mannahan, Christy Boswell and Pam Crawford In Oklahoma, the goals of the PIN grant are threefold: 1) To provide six Web-based self-paced leadership courses for nurses working in rural hospitals, long-term care, home health, and public health entities; 2) To offer these six courses via distance learning technology to three training sites in rural Oklahoma; and 3) To grant tuition for eight BSN nurse educators in three rural and diverse communities to complete an online MSN degree. Using the advanced technology of the OneNet system, distance education courses were instructor-led and delivered live and in real-time to three distance learning sites in rural Oklahoma: Talihina, Tahlequah and Ada. By providing these three distance learning classrooms, 60 nurses from hospitals, long-term care, home health, public health, and other settings received training in their area in the fall The bottom line benefits for nurses participating in the distance education or online courses were reduced expenses, minimized travel, and decreased time away from work and family. PIN is now in its third year of a five-year, $10 million initiative. During the program s first year, the 10 foundation partners established more than 215 partnerships between nursing organizations, funders and workforce development boards to address the nursing shortages.
7 The PIN program in Oklahoma was valuable because I learned to become more professional and open in how I grow in my duties. To apply what I learned, I had to look into who I was as a past nurse leader and, hopefully, as a future nurse leader. Debra Dill, BSN Education Coordinator Choctaw Nation Health Services Authority Talihina, OK The PIN grant has given me the tools to become a knowledgeable, well-rounded, instructor who knows how to deliver teaching methods that work, are timely, and enhance the student experience. Education never stops and I am showing this to the students by actively participating in my own education. Personally, it is very rewarding. I am very grateful for the PIN Grant scholarship as well as the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Center to have given me this opportunity.
