Continuing Nursing Education
The Organizational Development and Learning department at East Tennessee
Children’s Hospital has collaborated with the nursing staff to create
ETCH Days (Engaging,
Healthcare). This program simplifies the educational process for our clinical
staff by offering an organized training framework. During ETCH Days, nurses
have the opportunity to update both skill and knowledge.
Annually, a needs assessment is performed to determine beneficial content
for staff. Multiple facets of the job are targeted including new equipment
and procedures as well as problem-focused components, allowing staff to
enhance clinical and administrative procedures. The Organizational Development
and Learning department collaborates with several other departments, including
laboratory, respiratory care and environmental services to ensure education
provided is comprehensive and balanced.
ETCH Days occur throughout the year. For more information regarding ETCH
Days, please contact the Organizational Development and Learning department.
