BUFFALO, NEW YORK; June 30, 2009-The University at Buffalo School of Nursing recently notified two members of ECMC's nursing management team of their selection to receive the University at Buffalo 2009 Distinguished Preceptor Award.  ECMC Unit Managers Margaret "Peggy" Cieri, RN, Rehabilitation (8th Floor, North) and Patricia "Patty" Kiblin, Geriatrics and Medicine (10th Floor, South) will be honored during an awards luncheon to be held by the UB School of Nursing on October 8, 2009. 

Nursing managers Peggy Cieri and Patty Kiblin were chosen in 2008 to participate as Clinical Leaders in a Clinical Educational Service Partnership between UB, ECMC, and Kaleida Health.  The focus of this clinical education partnership was to develop a new model for clinical practice.  ECMC nurses became first in the region to serve as active mentors for UB undergraduate nursing students to immerse each student in a hands-on clinical experience.  The initiative included the establishment of two Dedicated Education Units (DEUs) at ECMC.  Within ECMC's DEUs, each designated Clinical Instructor/Teacher mentors two students for one clinical rotation and becomes the students' main instructor with overall guidance from the University.  The objectives of the DEU are to: utilize staff nurses to assist in the clinical competence of undergraduate nursing students; provide clinical education for an increased number of students; assist and support the professional development of staff nurses; and provide a prepared pool of potential resources for workforce recruitment. 

The Dedicated Education Unit concept draws from the experiences of Flinders University in South Australia where the DEU concept was developed.  The University of Portland School of Nursing piloted the model on the West Coast.  The model provides a framework for clinical instruction.  Thinking in terms of "it takes a village to raise new nurses," the DEU model establishes an environment which supports and fosters the clinical education of nursing students.  The program, which began in the fall of 2008, represents the first such effort to pilot the effectiveness of a Dedicated Education Unit in the Western New York healthcare community. 

In a June 16, 2009, award notification letter to the two ECMC Clinical Leaders, UB School of Nursing Dean and Professor Jean K. Brown, PhD, RN, FAAN, stated, "Congratulations on your selection as...the recipients of the 2009 Distinguished Preceptor Award.  You were selected because you were a key partner in spearheading one of the first DEUs on your Units.  You bring great honor to your colleagues." 

In recent correspondence to Peggy Cieri and Patty Kiblin, ECMC Corporation Senior Vice President of Nursing Bonnie Ann Glica, MS, RN, expressed, "Congratulations on being selected as recipients of the UB School of Nursing Distinguished Preceptor Award(s).  Your selection was notably due to your support and leadership in the development within your departments of the first Dedicated Education Units in this region.   Thank you for your commitment and dedication to the profession of Nursing and to your nursing students, as well as for leading by example." 

Peggy Cieri has been an ECMC nurse since 1994, and lives in the Town of Lancaster. 

Patty Kiblin has been a nurse at ECMC since 1986, and resides in the Town of Hamburg.
