Journal for Nurses in Professional Development: March/April 2013 - Volume 29 - Issue 2 - p 70-72 doi: 10.1097/NND.0b013e318286c5ae Buy Metrics AbstractIn Brief Educating nurses on the multitude of new and updated best practices, changes in regulatory standards, new equipment, and enhanced technology creates an “information traffic jam.” Multiple practice changes occurring simultaneously pose challenges for nurses to retain information to practice safely and effectively. An absence of coordination between various nursing and allied health teaching initiatives compounds this problem. A nursing practice calendar was developed to facilitate the prioritization, communication, and education of hospital-wide initiatives affecting nursing practice. In this article, the authors describe the development of a Nursing Practice Calendar designed to facilitate the dissemination of hospital-wide education information. © 2013 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
