OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to develop and test a tool to monitor a nursing orientee's progress to competence. BACKGROUND: The literature suggests that, during orientation, consistent documentation and communication among educators, preceptors, and nurse leaders facilitate a timely progression to independent practice for new nurses. METHODS: A 2-phase methodological study was conducted. Nurse educators clarified goals, identified essential competencies, and developed the Baptist Health Lexington Nursing Orientation Progression Tool (OPT). The tool was used to monitor orientees' progression through orientation. RESULTS: Content validity assessment of the OPT (content validity index = 0.98) demonstrated strong validity. Testing of the tool revealed 31 nurses completed orientation early, 12 completed orientation on time, and 18 nurses required extended orientation time. All requiring an extension were new graduates. CONCLUSION: The OPT guided preceptors to facilitate timely completion of orientation among newly hired nurses. Findings suggest that new graduates may need more assistance than experienced nurses.

PURPOSE: To examine the effect of education on nursing personnel's knowledge and attitudes regarding the use of hand massage, breathing techniques, and essential oils with hospice and palliative care patients. BACKGROUND: Unrelieved, end of life pain is common among hospitalized patients on hospice and palliative care units. Integrative care techniques such as hand massage, breathing techniques, and essential oils can be available to use with these individuals. Nursing personnel are often unaware of other techniques that are not a traditional pharmacology approach to pain. METHODS: A quasi-experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of an educational intervention on nursing personnel's knowledge and attitudes regarding the use of three integrative care techniques (hand massage, breathing techniques, and essential oils) with hospice and palliative care patients in an acute care setting. Data on knowledge and attitudes were collected pre- and postintervention. RESULTS: Following the intervention, improvements in nursing personnel's attitudes and knowledge toward the use of the three techniques were found. CONCLUSION: Results of this study suggest that education of nursing personnel may positively influence knowledge and attitudes toward providing hand massage, breathing techniques, and essential oil for end of life patients.

Magnet designation requires that nurses be actively involved in activities that lead to obtaining evidence through conducting research. Unfortunately, several barriers limit nurses' ability to engage in research activities, including insufficient resources. This article explains how a community-based hospital implemented a fellowship model to circumvent some of these barriers. Two fellowship positions are described, 1 in research and 1 in library sciences. The method, outcomes, and cost of the fellowship model are discussed.
