Inside best practice: Tracking nurse training and skillsets

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, November 15, 2010

Midland Memorial Hospital in Midland, TX, recently changed its process for tracking not only online training but demonstrated proficiencies among its nurses. The change has resulted in a real-time information tracking program that has helped not only with tracking training, but documenting growth of its employees for its ANCC Magnet Recognition Program ® (MRP) journey.

Jenny Delk-Fikes, BSN, RN-BC, clinical excellence manager with Midland Memorial, explains that previously, e-learning was tracked online, while checklists for demonstrated proficiencies were tracked in paper format—leading managers to have to look in multiple locations, in multiple formats, just to figure out what their staff knew and how well they knew it.
