Using Novice to Expert Theory to Help Nurses Transition to Pediatric ICUs

1. I work in a pediatric ICU and we have had an influx of nurses with mixed clinical experience transferring to the unit as either the first time in the ICU (peds nurses) or the first time in peds(adult ICU nurses). They are often way out of their comfort zones, and although they have nursing knowledge, either of ICU or peds, they don’t have both and thisrequirestime and effort to get them proficient in their work. The needs of pediatric ICU patients and their parents are different from othersettings(Douglas et al, 2013). We don’t have a structured way to help them which causesfrustration for all of us, wastesresources, and can impact patient care.

2. We learned about Benner’s Model of Skill Acquisition thissemester and it makesso much sense. The Model providesthe framework for the movement of nursesfrom the start of their BSN education to achievement of expertise in their practice area (McEwen & Wills, 2022). It includes a. Novice: no practice experience – new nursing student b. Advanced beginner: demonstrates marginally acceptable performance,some real life work so can judge recurrent meaningfulsituations, have rule driven behaviors- new graduate nurse c. Competent: 2-3 years experience, seestheir actions aslong-range goals, consciously aware of these plans, and what is most important d. Proficient: perceivessituations as a whole, recognizes expected normal and when the normal is absent. Decision making is easier because of ability to attend to what isimportant e. Expert: intuitive, not just rule guided,sees problems without wasting energy, perceivesthe situation as a whole with appropriate actions 3. Definitions: Competent nurse – 2-3 yearsin pediatrics or adult ICU but new to pedsICU, Proficient nurse – more than 3 yearsin pediatrics or adult ICU but new to pedsICU, Skill Acquisition – knowledge and behaviors necessary to provide safe, quality care in pedsICU 4. Aim of Study – To understand the education and training needs of experienced nursestransitioning to PICU 5. Nurses who are ready for a new professional challenge and work life should receive support from unit management and colleaguesto socialize to the new RN role. Understanding and structuring the mentorship and coursework they need will improve their orientation experience, increase collaboration on the unit, retain nurses, and lead to safe, high quality care in our pedsICU.
