Event Description

According to the Institute of Medicine, baccalaureate nurses must be better prepared to function in the community primary care setting with particular focus on care coordination and chronic illness. A team of three nursing faculty led the redesign of a curricular module in NUR316, the spring junior clinical course. The half-semester module includes a conceptual model, learning objectives, didactic content, and 5 clinical learning experiences and related assignments that develop students’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes about the RN’s role in patient centered care coordination (PCCC). A non-experimental, mixed methods research study was conducted during the spring of 2015 to investigate the impact of this curricular module on student learning outcomes. The three nursing faculty and junior student, McCall Kleve, collaborated during the summer to conduct data analysis and draft a manuscript of the study findings, conclusions, and implications. Ms. Kleve assisted with compiling sources from the literature for use in the manuscript, conducting qualitative data analysis, and in drafting, with guidance from other team members, sections of the manuscript.
