Abstract

This paper describes the collaboration of nurses from five specialty units within a large tertiary care pediatric hospital in the development and presentation of Nursing Grand Rounds (NGR). NGR was generated, prepared, and presented quarterly by bedside nurses to their peers in a professional format. NGR lasted 2hours, were simultaneously offered via Webinar, and incorporated literature reviews, guest/expert speakers, and case studies. In addition, attendees were eligible for continuing education credits (CEUs). Based on favorable evaluations, NGR is purported as a creative method for nurses to be kept up-to-date about evidence and knowledge unique to their patient population.
