DNP Research Study

 

Dear Colleagues,

My name is Julio Santiago, a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) student at Regis University. I am conducting a research study which is required for my degree. My research study, which is a quality improvement initiative (QI), will seek to validate practicing vascular Access Nurses Knowledge, Competence, and Self-Confidence pre and post taking an online educational review program and Certified PICC Ultrasound Guided Inserter (CPUI). The research is being conducted in partnership with PICC Excellence Inc. This survey is designed to validate practicing vascular access registered nurses that are currently working placing PICC lines and midlines and have a minimum of 25 insertions, all others will be excluded. Your participation in this Quality Improvement project will take approximately 15 to 21 hours. Participation in the Quality improvement project and successful completion of the project will earn the participants a two-year Certified Ultrasound PICC Inserted Certification at no cost to the participant. Survey access is through SurveyMonkey(<-- Click Here). Your access to the quality improvement project is confidential, and participation will be an anonymous pooled database. The results of the quality improvement project will be used to better understand practicing vascular access nurses.

Your participation in this effort is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the research project. 

Warm regards,

study participation

Survey Monkey deemed me unqualified as I cannot produce proof that I am qualified to place piccs and midlines. What constitutes proof, please? I have placed more than 500 PICCs. I am only aware of certification for placing PICCs from PICC Excellence.  

Thank you.

DNP Research Study

Nancy, Sorry for the confusion. When you were trained you should have received a certificate or document that states that you are trained to insert PICC/midlines lines. Whether Bard, Navilyst, PICC Excellence or any other organization/person trained you, they should have provided you with proof of training, that is the document that is required. Hope this clarifies your question. SurveyMonkey will not let you register again if you use the same computer IP Address, you will need to try it from a different computer. If it asks for a different username use your Father's Date of Birth. Thank you, Julio

That is not completely

That is not completely accurate. Attending a class or completing an online course may provide a piece of paper to award continuing education for completion of that education course. That is only the first step and provided IF there are contact hours awarded. Next comes the work in a simulation lab then supervised clinical practic. The whole process produces a documented competency which is documented in employee record. It is highly possible for many inserters to not be able to provide a specific document saying this person is competent to insert. A CE certificate may only include the original class but that is far from saying they can competently insert.
