Continuing Education

The Continuing Education Department delivers a variety of professional education to Procare's clinical staff and physicians

PCRH CONTINUING NURSING EDUCATION

Provisions of opportunities for growth and development among all Procare Riaya Hospital nursing staff have long been identified as an important retention strategy. Professional growth and development include personal opportunities, as well as the opportunity within the organization, to utilize the development to enhance nursing practices and the quality of patient care.

In Procare Riaya Hospital a career ladder for demonstration of competency and professional recognition (e.g. Employee of the Month) is an opportunity for all staff to advance within the organization. Nursing education gives support for individual professional growth, and by providing Continuing Education and Mentoring throughout the nurses' professional life at PCRH.

HOW ARE IN-SERVICES/CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS PROVIDED TO MAINTAIN STAFF COMPETENCY?

The Continuing Education for Nurses is offered by education staff, and supervised by the D.O.N. who has a Master’s Degree in Nursing.

Education is via the following:

 

  • Hospital orientation
  • Education plans for individuals
  • Mandatory Competencies, generic and unit specific
  • Mandatory yearly education requirements i.e. in services and CME hours

To maintain licensure both in the Kingdom and in the country of origin, the nurses must complete their required number of educational hours. The use of educational opportunities to maintain the high standards of practice and care is a progressive process which is largely self directed. Monthly schedules for education are posted on the first day of the month.


PCRH GENERAL AND NURSING ORIENTATION

Orientation program here at PCRH includes, but is not limited to, introduction to the organization, its philosophy, goals and expectations; initial collaborative evaluation with the orienting nurse of the orientation and supervision needs for developing competency in the chosen practice area; staffing patterns that allow the established staff to give, and the transitioning nurse to receive, the support necessary for successful orientation to the area of practice; ongoing feedback regarding performance expectations and achievement.

A new staff is required to attend a general orientation for ten days before their unit orientation. A series of lectures on competency follows as being competent in providing appropriate care is of the utmost importance unto professionalism, responsibility, and accountability not only in practice but also in the promotion of general welfare.
