Nurses provide care on the frontlines. Secondary to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the need exists for nursing professionals to transition training to a virtual environment. Staff development, and innovation in training are important to advance nursing practice, and transition change within the healthcare environment. Virtual staff development is beneficial for learning new skills, higher order thinking, and learning skills competency. Join Dr. Nicole Square, Walden core faculty member, in a webinar exploring virtual staff development for nurses. Learn how to move typically face-to-face events for nursing staff into a virtual setting. From in-service days to skill days, in many healthcare settings, clinical education for nurses has gone completely virtual. This new environment challenges those involved in nursing professional development to find new ways to engage staff. Dr. Square will showcase virtual best practices, working through the tools and systems used for virtual staff development, and will show how to demonstrate competency virtually. This webinar will equip attendees with the knowledge and strategies to develop a personal or organizational plan to engage learners in a virtual learning environment. In addition, you will earn 1 hour of nursing continuing professional development credit for attending the webinar on virtual staff development for nurses.
