This presentation will illustrate one organization's professional development workshop, geared to integrate a toolkit for understanding and integrating national standards, ethics, primary nursing, shared decision making, collegial communication and evidence based practice into the complexity of care at the bedside. Pre and post surveys of staff nurses perception of professional practice, job satisfaction and patient satisfaction are used as measures to quantify effectiveness of the curriculum. The strategies for roll out of the program and organizational readiness will be described. The curriculum, entitled PPI & L (Professional Practice Integration and Leadership) serves as a model for our organization to continually raise the bar on professional nursing practice.
