Abstract:
Web-Based Independent Study for the National Council Licensure Examination
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

The purpose of this approach was to develop an independent study based over an Internet web site to provide nursing students with a review course for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in a convenient manner. The NCLEX is the examination that all graduates of nursing programs are required to pass to become a licensed registered nurse (RN). The students have access to the Internet in the following ways: personal computer, nursing and general computer labs, and public libraries (which are open on the week ends). A one credit hour elective course for NCLEX review has been available to nursing students for four years and counts towards elective hours necessary for degree requirements. The class had been taught in the traditional method of classroom didactic and clinical skills review. This course was offered as a two hour elective over the internet and the students contracted for a grade. The Blackboard CourseInfo a web based authoring program was used to design the course. The Blackboard CourseInfo authoring program incorporates the following preset menus: announcements, course information, staff information, course documents, assignments, communication (e.g., email, discussion board, etc.), external links, and student tools (e.g., check your grade). The Blackboard CourseInfo had been used as adjunct tool in other nursing courses and the students were already familiar with the program. The course includes: Web-based course content, discussion, assignments, and quizzes. "Announcements" is a place where faculty can post announcements, messages, and assignments. "External links" refers students to other web-based sites. "Discussion Board" provides a place topics can be discussed and faculty and students can post their comments. "Email" was used for faculty and student communication. Since offering web-based enhancement in other courses and in this independent study it has fostered the independent learning of the students. It also has enabled faculty to give more individual attention to the students requesting further information because of the convenience of communication through emailing. Evaluation results of the course are not yet analyzed. The course is presently being revised and modified to correct problems identified during the implementation of the course. The evaluation results and course presentation will be available.
