Title:
Coaching and Mentoring Undergraduate Nursing Research, Scholarship, and Creative Works
Abstract:
Coaching and Mentoring Undergraduate Nursing Research, Scholarship, and Creative Works
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Bond, A. Elaine, APRN, DNSc, CCRN
P.I. Institution Name:Brigham Young University
Undergraduate nursing students expect to learn bedside skills such as starting IVs, responding to monitors, providing comfort, and saving lives, unaware of their potential role in research, scholarship, and creative works. As they discover additional nursing roles, such as research to guide evidence-based practice; presentations to inform health care professionals, educators, and the public about health concerns; and creative methods by which to present these health messages, awareness emerges as to their possibilities to “make a difference” in health care. The president at our university has challenged faculty to coach and mentor undergraduate students through Research, Scholarship, and Creative Works, so they can publish and/or present at notable conferences before they graduate. For our College of Nursing’s required research class, students integrate their experience into other class assignments, working individually or collaboratively with faculty members; critical care and pediatric students write position papers that incorporate a thorough literature review; Capstone students complete projects through collaborative efforts, to benefit their precepting agency. These papers and projects are presented to hospital personnel, by podium and/or poster. Additionally, some students undertake independent research projects or collaborative projects with hospital units, encouraged, coached, and mentored by faculty. Many of these papers, projects, and research efforts are reported in scientific journals and conferences, thus providing professional recognition and an increased impetus for students to complete graduate work. This presentation will address challenges the author has experienced, such as time, communication, and motivation; as well as personal and professional rewards.
