Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2014, University of San Francisco

This strategy also reduced the amount of contract labor required to backfill nurse super users’ clinical shifts. The innovative model reduced labor costs associated with super user staffing by 31.8%, while positioning the organization for successful attestation to Stage 2 meaningful use objectives. Employment of the recently graduated nurses as RN Residents upon completion of the EHR implementation enabled the organization to augment its clinical workforce with expert users of its EHR, and to rapidly achieve Stage 2 meaningful use compliance.
