Use of peer coaches may be effective in building and maintaining competencies bedside nurses need to safely use electronic health records (EHRs). A nonexperimental design with before-after measures was used to evaluate the effectiveness of peer coaches in increasing learner satisfaction and confidence in EHR use on 9 units at an academic medical center. Survey findings suggested that nurses experienced higher than expected satisfaction with training and increased self-confidence in the EHR use following program implementation.
