42 Linda Ault, BSN, MSN and Cindy Fagan, RN, MSN, FNP-BC
Co-Leads Access to Care

43 Access to Care Objectives
All Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training

44 Progress 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

45 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

46 Progress APRN Video has been completed

47 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

48 Next Steps 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

49 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. This can be done through the development of a white paper in addition to education of professional and consumer groups.

50 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

71 Partners Investing in Nursing’s Future Inspiration for Aspirations
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

72 Partnerships for Progression: 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.

73 Inspiration for Aspirations Accomplishments
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

74 Accomplishments (cont)
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

75 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?

76 Future Steps 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

77 Survey of Chief Nursing Officers 2012 Lauren Goodloe, PhD, RN, NEA-BC

78 About the Survey 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.

79 Barriers for Progression
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) The most common barrier listed was financial concerns. Examples includined lack of tuition reimbursement, nurse having to pay tuition fees upfront and current tuition reimbursement policy not covering entire cost. Second most common was distance of schools. Examples: Community Memorial Healthcare “only AD programs local, must travel long distance” and Centera Southside Community listed lack of local affiliation for RN to BSN bridge program.

80 Tuition Assistance for Full-Time Employees
100% responded “YES” to offering tuition assistance for full-time employees. Only 3 Hospitals offer tuition waiver: VCU, HealthSouth Northern VA, Carilion (no limits on amount). 28 offer tuition reimbursement and 15 scholarships. Tuition reimbursement ranged from $750 to $5,500. With an average being $3,700. VCU listed 18 credit hours. Sentara RMH Healthcare offers tuition reimbursement but in comments “not for RN to BSN” Sentara Princess Anne Hospital $2300 for full time and employed more than 10 years

81 At what point do tuition benefits begin?

82 Tuition Assistance for Part-Time Employees
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. Definition of part-time varies: 1040 hours per year, hours per pay period, 20 hours per pay period and 16 hours per pay period. Sentara Princess Anne Hospital prorated based on years of service: 6 months – 3 years $700, 3 years – 10 years $1,000.

83 Does your hospital offer any of the following supports to nurses returning to school?
Flexible Scheduling 21 – most self schedule or by management discretion Support Study Groups 7 – based on request Weekend Incentive Programs 5 – Halifax Regional 32 hours equal full time Loan Repayment 4 Full health benefits while working reduced hours 3 – Lewis Gale Hospital Pulaski full health benefits at 32hrs On-Site RN-BSN program 2 – Martha Jefferson (Sentera) partnered with Old Dominion provided via satellite on Monday evenings in conference rooms.

84 Do you hire new RN’s who graduated from schools that are not NLNAC or CCNE accredited?
Community Memorial Healthcenter – “our local community college is not currently accredited but is in the process.” Pioneer Health Services – “never come across that situation, probably would if the nurse look like a good employee.” Other 5 included: Sentera Health Care, Lewis Gale Hospital, Centera Southside Community, Halifax Regional, Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center,

85 Do you hire unlicensed assistive personal who are RN students enrolled in schools not accredited by NLNAC or CCNE? Community Memorial Healthcenter – “usually only a summer position”

86 Do you allow schools who are not accredited by NLNAC or CCNE to bring students to your organization for clinical or observational experience? Lewis Gale Hospital “we allow new non accredited technical program clinical rotation if space available.” Community Memorial Healthcenter – “our local community college is not currently accredited but is in the process.” Other Restrictions placed on Schools of Nursing: Sentara Healthcare - Instructors must go through our system orientation and be onsite whenever students on site. Community Memorial Healthcenter – not internet or proprietary programs except for Master’s or Doctorate projects. Martha Jefferson – within our geographic location so as to provide a pool of candidates for hire

87 Degree requirements with clinical ladder?
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

88 Does your organization have a plan if place to attain an 80% BSN workforce by 2020?
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 Inova Loudoun Hospital – “Bedside RNs will be required to have a BSN in the next 5 years if they are going to utilize tuition reimbursement or scholarship funds.” Inova Health System – “Established steering committee of system staff nurses to develop plan for how current non BSN staff will attain their BSN.”

89 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 YES – 14 NO – 12

90 Know where you are to best determine the course you need to follow
Analyze Gaps Then Forecast Outcomes with potential policy changes

91 Forecasting Model - Background
American Association of Colleges of Nursing (September 2009) Virginia Board of Nursing (January 2010) Virginia Department of Health Professions, Healthcare Workforce Data Center (November 2010) U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (March 2011) U.S. Census Bureau (2011) U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, HRSA (March 2010)

92 RN Education Cadres Non-BSN # and % BSN or Higher Current Workforce
Projected Completions New Graduate New Hires Experienced RN Terminations Acquisitions

93 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

94 The Decision Don’t make it alone Make it in Public

95 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

96 Wording in Letter of Hire
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.

97 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
