  • Have you learned about this professional practice issue in nursing?
  • Do you believe purely based on opinion, not on research….more education is better….?Why?
  • 1) Have you every heard of the concept ‘entry into practice’ for nursing or other ?
  • WIIFM radio station….what’s in it for me?

    • 1. Why BSN? The evidence of why patients & families need BSN nurses Paulette C Compton, RN, MSN, MC Program Director MaricopaNursing-Banner Boswell MCC
    • 2. Imagine…….  SCENERIO: The principal at the new school for your children or your nieces & nephews tells you they have teachers with different education preparation and degrees but there is NO difference in their ability to teach your children/nieces/nephews. What do you think about this? What questions would you have for the principal? 2.26.13 2PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 3. What do you know about ADN vs. BSN?  What does the concept „entry into practice‟ mean?  Is it common to have different entry into practice points in a specific profession?  Do you know of any other profession who has more than one way to enter into practice? 2.26.13 3PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 4. What is a ‘profession’? Defining Characteristics of a Profession: 1) Established ethical standards(AZBN & ANA Code of Ethics) 2) Widely recognized body of knowledge (ANA Nursing Scope & Standards of Practice) 3) Use body of knowledge in the interest of others. („helping profession‟) 4) Body of body of knowledge is derived from research (EBP), education and training at a university institution of higher learning. (4 year college degree) Adapted from SOURCE: Australian Council of Professions (2004) 2.26.13 4PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 5. ANA 1965 Position Paper The 1965 ANA Position Paper recommended: ① Requirement making the baccalaureate degree the minimum educational standard for professional nursing practice: Registered Nurse (RN) ② Create new license for associate degree nurses: Registered Associate Nurses (RAN) ③ Eliminate two types of technical nursing education programs:  Diploma  Practical 2.26.13 5PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 6. ANA’s Rationale for Position Paper on Nursing Education ANA‟s Rationale for 1965 Position Paper on Nursing Education 1) Increasing complexity of healthcare and nursing practice 2) Majority of nurses trained in diploma programs, which focused on staffing hospital with students, rather than higher education in colleges or universities 2.26.13 6PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 7. ANA’s Rationale for Position Paper on Nursing Education (cont.) 4) Professionals are educated in institutions of higher learning 5) Nursing lagging behind other healthcare professions who are increasing educational requirements which result in nurses the „least educated‟ healthcare professional 2.26.13 7PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 8. Nurses are the ‘least educated’ healthcare profession! Healthcare Occupations: Minimum Education Degree for Entry to Practice  Associate Registered Nurse Respiratory Therapist Tech Pharmacy Tech Occupational Therapy Assistants Physical Therapy Assistants  Baccalaureate Respiratory Therapist  Masters Physical Therapist Occupational Therapist Social Worker Speech Therapist Counselor  Doctoral Physician Pharmacist 2.26.13 8PCCompton Why BSN?

    • 16. Why BSN? Why BSN??? The answer is simple. The evidence indicates:  Patient outcomes are better when a higher proportion of nurses are educated with BSN.  Patient mortality rates decrease when a higher proportion of nurses are educated with BSN.  Failure to rescue rates by nurses decrease as a higher proportion of nurses are educated with BSN. 2.26.13 16PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 17. Opinion vs. Evidence Opinion • Individual‟s view or perception • Individual may or may not be an „expert‟ Evidence • Based on scientific methods • Levels of evidence 2.26.13 17PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 18. EFFECT of RN Educational Level on Patient Outcomes Evidence  Aiken, L.H., et al. (2003).Educational levels of hospital nurses & surgical patient mortality, Journal of American Medical Association, 290, 16-17-1623. STUDY RESULTS: N=#232,342. A 10% increase in the proportion of nurses holding a bachelor‟s degree was associated with a 5% decrease in both the likelihood of patients dying within 30 days of admission and the odds of failure to rescue (odds ratio, 0.95; 95%CI, 0.91- 0.99 in both case). STUDY CONCLUSION: In hospitals with higher proportions of nurses educated at baccalaureate level or higher, surgical patients experienced lower mortality and failure to rescue rates. 2.26.13 18PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 19. EFFECT of RN Educational Level on Patient Outcomes Evidence  Aiken, L.H., et al. (2008). Effects of Hospital Care Environment on Patient Mortality and Nurse Outcomes. Journal of Nursing Administration, 38(5), 223-229 STUDY RESULTS: N =#232,342. Each 10% increase in the proportion of nurses with a BSN was associated with a 4% decrease in risk of death. STUDY CONCLUSION: This study reaffirmed 2003 Aiken study in JAMA which found in hospitals with higher proportions of nurses educated with BSN, patient mortality decreased. 2.26.13 19PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 20. EFFECT of RN Educational Level on Patient Outcomes Evidence  Friese, C.R., et al. (2008) Hospital nurse practice environments and outcomes for surgical oncology patients. Health Services Research, 43(4), 1145-1163 STUDY RESULTS: Hospitals whose nurses had more advanced educational preparation had lower mortality rates (p<.05). Higher education was associated with lower failure to rescue rates (p<.01). (By convention, a p value of 0.05 is considered a statistically significant result) STUDY CONCLUSION: Improvements in the quality of nurse practice environments could reduce adverse outcomes for hospitalized surgical oncology patients. 2.26.13 20PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 21. EFFECT of RN Educational Level on Patient Outcomes Evidence  Tourangeau, A.E., et al. ( 2007) Impact of hospital care on 30-day mortality for acute medical patients. Journal of Advanced Nursing, 57(1), 32-41. STUDY RESULTS: N=46,993. A 10% increase in the proportion of baccalaureate-prepared nurses was associated with 9 fewer deaths for every 1000 discharged patients. This is a similar finding of Aiken (2003) study. STUDY CONCLUSIONS: Evidence supports current movement to legislate BSN as minimum requirement for RN entry to practice. Because of impact of BSN lowering mortality rates, authors recommend hospitals aggressively seek to hire and retain BSN nurses to care for acute medical patients, who require the scope and depth of knowledge attained in BSN education to provide safe quality care to complex acute medical patients. 2.26.13 21PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 22. EFFECT of RN Educational Level on Patient Outcomes Evidence  Estabrooks, C.A., et al. (2005). The impact of hospital nursing characteristics on 30-day mortality. Nursing Research, 54(2), 72-84. STUDY RESULTS: N= #18,142. The hospitals with a higher proportion of baccalaureate-prepared nurse were associated with lower rate of 30-day patient mortality (95% CI, 0.81-0.96). STUDY CONCLUSIONS: Hospital nursing characteristics are an important consideration in efforts to reduce the risk of 30-day mortality of patients. 2.26.13 22PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 23. What is rationale for opinion opposing BSN minimal entry into practice?  Why do you think anyone would have the „opinion‟ BSN minimal entry into practice is not a good idea? 1) WIIFM….good or bad? 2) Unaware of clinical issues 3) Unaware of health policy issues 4) Fear of change 5) Fear of loss of job 6) Inability to obtain BSN 7) Increased tuition to obtain BSN 8) Increased cost to health care organizations 9) Fear of increased nursing shortage 10) Fear of evidenced-based practice 11) ?? 2.26.13 23PCCompton Why BSN?

What does the IOM do? “The IOM applies a distinct research process to provide objective and straightforward answers to difficult questions of national importance.” “These leading national and international scientists [who conduct the studies], all of whom serve as volunteers, are asked to set aside preconceptions and to rely on evidence in their pursuit of knowledge and truth.” SOURCE: 2.26.13 30PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 31. Why are IOM Reports Essential to Nursing Education?  The IOM Reports: 1) provide evidence how to improve our healthcare system 2) provide evidence how to improve the health of Americans & improve patient outcomes in our nursing practice 3) IOM focus is also on healthcare professions education with goal of a consistent framework with all healthcare professions education emphasizing interdisciplinary care SOURCE: Finkelman A & Kenner, C (2009) Teaching IOM: Implications of the IOM Reports for Nursing Education. ANA: Silver Spring, MD 2.26.13 31PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 32. IOM Report: To Err is Human 1999  The report identified remarkably high incidence of errors in health care. At least 44,000 to 98,000 people die in hospitals each year in the US as a result of medical errors that could have been prevented, based on estimates from two major studies.  Definition of „medical error‟-the failure of a planned action to be completed as intended or the use of a wrong plan to achieve an aim.  The highest incidence of medical errors with serious consequences occurs more frequently in ICUs, ORs, and EDs.  Recommendation of need to change to blame-free environment which does not focus on punishing individuals for errors but changes to a root cause analysis to determine individual practice and system problems which result in errors. 2.26.13 32PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 33. IOM Report: Crossing the Quality Chasm 2001  The report found our health care system is fragmented, inefficient, and poorly organized.  IOM 1990 definition of „quality‟-“the degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge.”  The report identified „quality‟ as a system property with six important improvement aims. ◦ Health care „quality‟ should be: ◦ Safe ◦ Effective ◦ Patient-centered ◦ Timely ◦ Efficient ◦ Equitable 2.26.13 33PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 34. IOM Report: Patient Safety: Achieving a New Standard of Care (2003)  The report identified the need for a much broader approach to patient safety than was first stated in To Err is Human.  Definition of „patient safety‟-The prevention of harm to patients, where harm can occur through errors of commission and omission.  The report describes the need for commitment from all stakeholders to a culture of safety and improved information system, which us clinical data at point of care to prevent, recognize, and recover from adverse events.  Recommended need HHS assume lead role for establishing a standards-based nation health information infrastructure to support comprehensive patient safety programs to detect and analyze adverse events and near misses. 2.26.13 34PCCompton Why BSN?

The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety. 36(1), 29-35. STUDY RESULTS: N=436 (38.6%) newly licensed RNs thought they were “poorly” or “very poorly” prepared about or had “never heard of QI.” BSN grads reported significantly higher levels of preparation in EBP, evidenced-based practice; assessing gaps in practice, teamwork, collaboration; and many research skills. STUDY CONCLUSIONS: RN educational programs need to improve education about and application of QI concepts and to consider focusing QI content into a separate course to assure it is taught. 2.26.13 47PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 48. Evidence New Grad Knowledge Gaps in Quality Improvement Education Sullivan, D. T., et al. (2009). Assessing quality and safety competencies of graduating prelicensure nursing students.Nursing Outlook. 57, 323-331. STUDY RESULTS: N= 565. Only 49% newly licensed RNs reported curriculum included reliable resources for locating evidence-based reports and clinical guidelines. Students believed they were most prepared to perform skills in core competencies patient-centered care & informatics. Students felt least prepared for skills in evidenced-based practice & quality improvement tools and evaluating the effects of practice changes. STUDY CONCLUSIONS: Due to gaps between theoretical presentation of quality and safety information and demonstrated application in practice, need to focus on redesign of curriculum content to include quality and safety education/practices. Special attention is needed to develop student competency in quality improvement. 2.26.13 48PCCompton Why BSN?

    • 50. IOM-RWF 2010 Forum on the Future of Nursing: Acute Care “Many unknowns about health care remain as the country pushes forward with health care reform. But one thing is certain. The US cannot adequately address the challenges facing its health care system without addressing the challenges facing the nursing profession. Nurses are the largest segment of the heath care workforce and are essential to providing quality care…….The goal of this initiative is to help transform nursing as part of far-reaching reforms in the health care system.” SOURCE: Preface to Summary of October 2009 Forum on the Future of Nursing: Acute Care 2.26.13 50PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 51. Conclusions & Plan ① Nursing practice continues to be extremely complex and increasing in complexity. ② Carnegie Report states we are under-educating all nurses….. both ADN & BSN….and recommend requirement BSN minimum entry into practice. ③ Advisory Board research indicates major gap between academia and practice…..only 10% of nurse practice leaders are satisfied with the new grad proficiencies on 36 competencies. ④ Nurses are the least educated health professional. 2.26.13 51PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 52. Conclusions & Plan (cont) ⑤ Nurses need to be educated in ALL of the IOM- QSEN core competencies. ⑥ BSN education provides the comprehensive nursing education required to teach quality improvement, safety, evidenced-based nursing practice, team collaboration, informatics, and patient centered care. ⑦ Research indicates patient mortality and failure to rescue rates decrease with higher percentage of BSN nurses. ⑧ Our US Healthcare System has poor patient outcomes & ranks 7th compared to six other industrialized countries. 2.26.13 52PCCompton Why BSN?
    • 53. Conclusions & Plan (cont) ⑨ Nurses are patient advocates and therefore must support expectation of requirement for BSN in nurses in order to improve patient outcomes. ⑩ Short-term approach: Regulation/legislation requiring BSN in 3 years post Associate Degree graduation. 11 Long-term approach: Regulation/legislation requiring BSN minimal entry into practice. 2.26.13 53PCCompton Why BSN?
