AARP 2011 Voter Education Pamphlet Questions anyone running for VA General Assembly should answer : If elected/re-elected, how would you ensure advanced practice registered nurses can practice to the full extent of their education and expertise? Do you support or oppose allowing advanced practice registered nurses to practice without physician supervision? AARP Partnership
Develop strategies to ensure nursing is skilled to provide leadership from the bedside to the boardroom Leadership Goal
Continue to determine strategic boards to which nurses could be appointed and work with stakeholders to identify, mentor, and recommend individuals for those appointments Collaborate with schools of nursing to ensure the curriculum focuses on leadership skills necessary for today’s complex healthcare environment Recognize leaders “from the bedside to the boardroom” at the annual Virginia Nurses Foundation Excellence in Nursing gala Leadership Objectives
Continue “Nurse Leaders in the Boardroom” program piloted with Robert Wood Johnson and AARP in September, 2009 Continue to support the current and expanded Nurse Leadership Institute, a program of the Richmond Memorial Health Foundation and a 2007 Partners Investing in Nursing’s Future (PIN) grantee, by participating on committees, providing scholarships, assisting in encouraging employers to nominate fellows and nurses to serve as faculty Leadership Objectives

Access to Care Linda Ault, BSN, MSN and Cindy Fagan, RN, MSN, FNP-BC Co-Leads
All Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training Access to Care Objectives
Identified barriers to APRN practice in statutory (code) and each facility determines what the practice parameters will be for their institution. Published a series of “Myth Busters” in VNT to educate nurses regarding what the various APRNs are actually licensed to do Collaboration with VCNP and MSV Progress
House Bill 346 passed and signed by Governor Eliminates supervisory language Emphasized collaboration and consultation between NPs (LNP & CNMs) and physicians to practice in teams Increased from 4 to 6 number of APRNs physicians can collaborate with Joint Boards of Nursing and Medicine have 280 days from July 1 to develop regulations HB 346 may not manifest until early 2013 Progress
APRN Video has been completedVideo Progress
Collaborating with Center for Championing Nursing Diana Mason PhD, RN, FAAN and Andrea Brassard DNSc, MPH, FNP – scope for other RNs Broadening focus on scope for other RNs Linda Ault, RN MSN appointed to national Center for Championing Nursing committee for long term care Progress
Call for stories: to demonstrate through real practice stories how APRNs were either able to successfully bridge a gap to care or how the current statutes hindered and negatively impact access to care throughout the state Developing an APRN video to educate public on new regulations Plan to conduct focus groups to identify institutional restriction to practice for RNs Plan to develop tool kit based on results to educate administrative teams, physicians and other stakehoder Next Steps
Create a dashboard on the VAC website to track the speakers and organizations that have been addressed. To date we have visited various APRN meetings in Virginia to educate them on the VAC and recruit future speakers. Secure more support statements for legislative change such as the one obtained by AARP Culminate results of identified RN/APRN barriers into a qualitative research project Long term goal: Implement legislative strategies to impact statutory and regulatory barriers that prevent nurses from practicing to the full extent of their education and training. Next Steps
Publish results of the survey Developing a list of potential emerging leaders Mentoring potential leaders to be selected for boards identified Targeting boards nurses should be appointed Developing a list of leadership programs Collaborate with schools of nursing on curriculum

Analysis of the Gaps: Interviews with VA Nursing Programs Amy Gillespie, RN, EdD Nancy Langston, PhD, RN, FAAN Partners Investing in Nursing’s Future Inspiration for Aspirations
Partners Investing in Nursing’s Future (PIN) is a partnership of the Northwest Health Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support the capacity, involvement and leadership of local foundations to advance the nursing profession in their own communities. Mission: The Partnerships for Progression: Inspiration for Aspiration project is to help regions in Virginia develop a culture of educational progression, where colleagues in associate and baccalaureate institutions work together, side-by-side, to “pull” students into advanced educational preparation and lifelong learning. Goal: Partnerships for Progression: Inspiration for Aspirations will result in sustainable partnerships between and among local community colleges and universities and their community partners to create seamless educational progression programs starting with ADN to BSN. Partnerships for Progression: Inspiration for Aspirations
Interviews with nursing programs in VA Major findings: Programs are working to create partnerships, procedures in place to make progression more seamless. Barriers for students center on personal and home life issues – family responsibilities, need to work full time for benefits Completion of RN-BSN Directory Easy access to information about RN-BSN programs Response to finding that RN-BSN information is difficult to find and confusing Inspiration for Aspirations Accomplishments
Survey of current RN-BSN students Major findings: personal issues and family responsibilities cited as primary barriers, tuition support and flexible scheduling listed as vital to success Identified that “information is not inspiration” Academic Progression Models: What’s Out There, What Works Statewide conference brought stakeholders together to share partnership and academic progression model information Accomplishments (cont)
Inspiration for Aspirations: School Again Video of five nurses who returned to school and successfully completed a Bachelors of Science degree in nursing share their experiences. What motivated you to go back to school? What were the challenges? What kept you going? What does having a BSN mean to you? What insights can you offer to other nurses? Accomplishments (cont)
Manuscripts to be developed Creation of Academic Progression Toolkit Website with tools to facilitate progression Development of sustainability plan Identification of agency to maintain, update, and possibly expand the toolkit Spring Conference Follow-up to summer conference Format for networking Future Steps
Survey sent to all Virginia Hospitals 29 completed surveys were returned from all regions of Commonwealth. Bed size ranged from 25 to >500. Goal of the survey was to explore employer RN support of educational progression. About the Survey
21 Hospitals found barriers that included: Financial support. (12) Distance of schools. (6) Flexibility of the schools. (3) Family Obligations (3) Nurses not receiving additional salary for education progression. (2) Current HR policy. (1) Barriers for Progression
100% responded “YES” to offering tuition assistance for full- time employees. Tuition Assistance for Full-Time Employees
At what point do tuition benefits begin?
16 of the hospitals offer part-time employees tuition assistance. Most hospitals prorated their full-time tuition assistance in half for part-time employees. Tuition assistance varied from $750 to $2,500. Tuition Assistance for Part-Time Employees
Does your hospital offer any of the following supports to nurses returning to school?
Do you hire new RN’s who graduated from schools that are not NLNAC or CCNE accredited?
Do you hire unlicensed assistive personal who are RN students enrolled in schools not accredited by NLNAC or CCNE?
Do you allow schools who are not accredited by NLNAC or CCNE to bring students to your organization for clinical or observational experience?
21 of the hospitals have a clinical ladder in place. 16 of the 21 require a particular degree in nursing in order to attain a certain level. Most requiring a BSN at level 4 And a MSN at level 5 Degree requirements with clinical ladder?
14 Hospitals answered Yes 11 Hospitals answered No 3 stated plans under development Common Plans Forecasting – BSN must be attained within 3 – 5 years of hire (5) Hiring only BSN (4) Changing job description to BSN requirement Does your organization have a plan if place to attain an 80% BSN workforce by 2020?
YES – 14 NO – 12 Does your health system have a defined relationship with a school of nursing that provide you with innovative solutions for increasing your BSN prepared RN

What Changes Will Lead to Your Success? Policy changes: In hiring In tuition assistance In student affiliations In contracts Collaboration: Seamless transition Onsite education Elimination of barriers
The Decision Don’t make it aloneMake it in Public
Example Education Progression Standard Effective January 1, 2012, ALL New hires without BS(N) sign agreement to: Enroll in an RN-BS(N) or RN-MS(N) accredited program within 24 months of hire Graduate from an RN-BS(N) program within 5 years of hire Failure to meet either term results in separation from organization Includes employees in school
As a [diploma prepared; associated degree prepared] nurse, please be aware that continuation of employment in your position as a registered nurse is contingent upon the following requirements: Enrollment in an accredited RN to BSN program within 24 months of your hire date (i.e., no later than [mm/dd/yyyy]) Successfully obtain your BSN no later than 5 years or 60 months from your hire date (i.e., [mm/dd/yyyy]) Failure to enroll in the RN to BSN program by the date specified or failure to obtain your BSN by [specify date] will result in the termination of your employment as a registered nurse. Employee tuition assistance benefits may be available to assist you in achieving this expectation after you have successfully been employed for twelve months in a continuous benefit-eligible role. Wording in Letter of Hire
Example of Governance Decisions New RNs Hired Must be a graduate of an NLN-AC or CCNE accredited school of nursing Student Workers Must be enrolled in an accredited NLN-AC or CCNE accredited program Tuition Reimbursement Restricted to NLN-AC or CCNE accredited programs Contracts Only NLN-AC or CCNE accredited schools eligible for clinical experiences in the health system
