PROPOSAL | Placement and Clinical Site Coordination Nursing

Description

  • PROPOSAL TITLE: Placement and Clinical Site Coordination-Nursing (COMPLETE)
  • DESCRIPTION: Community colleges that have nursing programs in the region would obtain funding for a Clinical Site Placement Coordinator. The Clinical Site Placement Coordinators (CSPC) would play a multifaceted role in the region for the ongoing support for nursing programs. Their key roles would include: ensuring clinical placements  are secured for nursing students through collaboration with colleges, universities, hospitals, clinics, community placements and long term care/skilled nursing facilities. The CSPC would be instrumental in identifying specialty clinical areas that are available for student placement such as pediatrics, maternity and mental health. Therefore, ensuring that educational institutions are able to recruit or remediate faculty for those specialty areas to meet the Board of Registered Nursing faculty requirements. The Placement Coordinator would also be responsible for exploring other potential clinical and community sites and ensuring affiliation agreements are current. Furthermore, the CSPC would provide useful insights for ongoing policy Implementation and development.
  • INDUSTRY SECTORS: Health
  • START DATE: Tue Jan 31 2017
  • END DATE: Wed Jan 31 2018
  • ESTIMATED PROPOSAL COST: $585,000
  • LEAD COLLEGE/DISTRICT: College of the Desert
  • READ THE SWP LEGISLATION: Yes
  • MEETS REQUIREMENTS OF SWP LEGISLATION: Yes

 

What Need Does This Proposal Address?

The Placement Coordinator would coordinate hospital and skilled nursing facility/long term care placements for our students and our regional partners. They would ensure that there is no overlapping of students from different institutions on a single ward in the hospital. They would be the direct liaison that the hospitals could contact if there are any concerns regarding placement-rotations of students. The Placement Coordinator would also be responsible to exploring other potential clinical and community sites and ensuring affiliation agreements are current.

 

How Does This Proposal Meet the Needs of Your Region's Labor Market?

The healthcare industry provides a viable option to help alleviate poverty in the region by offering jobs that pay Livable wages for all levels of skills and education. Occupations at every skill and education level are key for the Inland Empire where only 27-28% of the population has earned some level of college degree and the majority of residents hold only a high school diploma. Research compiled by the Centers of Excellence. the Sector Navigators, and Deputy Sector Navigator. resulted in one comprehensive labor market report for 2016. Centers of Excellence gathered and synthesized health care workforce data (10+ regional studies) key trends, gap analysis. sector growth potential and community college supply. Community college programs were identified for each occupation using the Taxonomy of Programs (TOP) coding system and are included in the report. The potential supply of students to the Labor market for the related group of occupations and the number of students completing community college programs related to health care, was analyzed to determine if postsecondary institutions are supplying enough qualified students to meet workforce demand. Compilations resulted in projected 2015-2020 annual job openings for the occupations far exceeded the annual average student headcounts, annual average regional community college awards and the total annual average awards for education Institutions outside of the California Community Colleges system. A recent statewide survey of hospitals conducted by California Hospital Association (CHA) found that population growth was one of the top 5 concerns related to the supply of the healthcare workforce. This is especially significant for the Inland Empire, a region with a rather low relative concentration of healthcare workers. According to Employment Development Department (EDD) data. the ratio of healthcare workers to residents in the combined San Bernardino­ Riverside region Is 1:34, which is much Lower than those of Orange County (1:22), Los Angeles County (1:23) and San Diego County (1:24). Some parts of the region are facing even greater shortages; for example, a study on the healthcare workforce in the Coachella Valley suggests that continued emphasis will be needed to assure there is a supply of well-trained and experienced nurses and other outpatient serving occupations to keep up with projected need An expanded regional role of Clinical Site Placement Coordinator (CSPC) would ultimately facilitate the development and expansion of placement capacity, as the CSPC will fill a gap in the form of up-to-date local knowledge about the clinical areas. The CSPC will provide a much needed 'bridge' between the Community College, the student and the clinical area. The role would aim to support student learning in practice. Furthermore. usef ul insights for ongoing policy implementation and development, faculty recruitment and retention, are to be in the scope of work for the CSPS.

 

How Does This Proposal Address the Identified Needs?

An increase in placements will result in an increased ability to meet student learning needs and possibly increase the ability to accept more students into allied health and nursing programs. Thus addressing the shortage of anticipated healthcare workers as identified in the "Regional Labor Market Assessment, Desert/Inland Empire Region, September 2016 Report: Five-Year Projected Occupation Data for Health Care Practitioner & Technical Occupations... Increase numbers of faculty may also decrease attrition rates students will have increased Instruction and supervision due to better faculty to student ratios. The Clinical Placement Coordinators will be responsible for directing operational aspects of the School of Nursing clinical and preceptor facilities/contracts. They would be responsible for collaborating with the dean, chair, and director and provides oversight and tracking of student placements, student clinical requirements, and faculty clinicalrequirements. Additionally, this person will develop and maintain strong working relationships with placement facilities

 

How Does This proposal Address the Priorities Established by Your Region?

The Centers of Excellence identified the occupational groups in which there is the Largest regional gap. Consideration should be given to those projects that attempt to fill the gaps identified.

RISKS:  Lack of data Some programs are so small that data cannot  be displayed in the LaunchBoard or CTE Unlocked. This Is particularly the case for employment and earnings metrics, because at least ten students must be found in the wage file for data to display. CC Top Codes Inconsistencies Community college programs are Identified for each occupation using the Taxonomy of Programs (TOP) coding system.. However, not all colleges are identifyi ng same institutional education programs with correct Top Codes. This may potentially exacerbate efforts in compiling accurate data mining for assessments and reports.
