Comprehensive patient care and documentation through unit-based nursing rounds



Comprehensive patient care and documentation through unit-based nursing rounds



Clinical Nurse Specialist Cns 5(2): 117-120



Unit-based nursing rounds is an advanced practice educational program implemented through collaboration between a unit-based clinical nurse specialist and an education nurse specialist. The purpose of this program is to provide an informal, time efficient means of teaching staff nurses during work hours. The format emphasizes utilization of the nursing process through presentation of selected case studies. The goal is to enhance incorporation of a nursing model into patient care planning to ensure comprehensive patient care and documentation. Each phase of coordinating, implementing, and evaluating this educational program will be reviewed.
