CCH Nursing Philosophy

The CCH Nursing Philosophy can be summed up to the following: Keep me safe; Take care of me; Be nice to me.

Keep Me Safe
It means doing the right thing, at the right time, always. We use two patient identifiers when giving meds and collecting specimens. We don’t bypass these, just because we think we know our patients. It means we do the things we are supposed to do to prevent falls from occurring. We don’t use work-arounds to avoid scanning meds. This isn’t always easy, but it is always necessary, to keep our patients safe.

Take Care of Me
There are several meanings to care in our organization. The first is competence. You have the responsibility to keep up to date on things that affect your practice, to maintain your certifications, to do your annual mandatory education. Our patients assume we are competent, unless we do something glaring to prove otherwise.

  • Compassion: This is the piece of healthcare that is unique to nursing, and it comes from the heart. We want our nurses to remember, always, that there is a patient on the other end of every task we complete, and they have family who love them. Our patient complaints are mostly submitted when patients feel we are not showing compassion for them.
  • Connect and Communicate: We need to speak to patients in a way they can understand, and we need to give them the information to make the best decisions about their healthcare.
  • Courage: It takes courage to be a nurse, and face the things we do every day. But you are never alone, even if it feels that way. It takes an immense amount of courage as a new graduate nurse to question your preceptor if you know that what she is showing you is different than what you have just learned in school.

Be Nice to Me
We have specific processes we expect our nurses to follow to enhance our patients’ experience. “Being nice” means different things to different people, but at CCH it means that we smile and make eye contact, we greet people. We ask our patients how they like to be addressed, and follow through with that. We treat our patients, families and each other with dignity and respect.

Nurse Residency Program

Since 2012, Campbell County Health (CCH) has offered a residency program for newly graduated nurses.

Evidence shows that graduate nurses are often overwhelmed by the healthcare environment they enter as a new nurse. The pace is hectic, and there are no easy patients “to learn on.” Surveys show that nurses are excited and feel well-prepared as they enter the workforce, but by six months they are exhausted and discouraged. At this point they often look for less-demanding positions, or consider leaving nursing altogether.

What’s the solution? Campbell County Health believes that it’s a residency program for new nurses.

Studies demonstrate that a structured residency program which reinforces clinical skills and supports professional growth enhances the competence and confidence of new nurses, and significantly reduces the loss of nurses from the bedside, or the profession in the first year. A typical orientation time ends at the time a nurse is most vulnerable-when they begin to understand how much they don’t know. A formal 10-month program supports nurses at this time, and better prepares them for a successful career as a professional nurse.

At CCH we offer a 10 month residency program for all newly graduated nurses who enter our organization. For the first six months of the program residents meet together for four hours, twice a month. Early in the program, all residents attend a three-day boot camp to hone clinical skills and get nurses accustomed to our processes and equipment. The focus of the first six months is to build your confidence and competence in the clinical arena. During the second six months your cohort will meet for four hours once a month, and the focus shifts to professional topics such as legal and ethical issues. The program is led by the CCH Professional Development Team, and utilizes the expertise of our own nursing staff.

The response from nurses who have completed our program feel better prepared to care for patients. Their directors affirm that they demonstrate a higher level of clinical competence, and are socialized into the professional role more quickly. Both our high patient satisfaction and quality scores tell us that our investment into our new nurses is the right thing to do.
