The purpose of this study was to examine the outcomes of a Pediatric Community Based BSN Education Curriculum that incorporates principles of community based education. The study included a non-random convenience sample of 75 senior level nursing students, over the course of five semesters. The ambulatory health community experience involved elementary, and middle school placements, child development centers, and a public pediatric community primary care clinic. At the end of the community experience, students completed the questionnaire that assessed their achievement of the course objectives and their satisfaction with the learning experiences. The staff of the community partnering agencies were also asked to complete a questionnaire that assessed their satisifaction with the students clinical experience. The mean total score on the achievement of objectives form was 31.5 (SD=6.2), which indicated that the students were able to succesfully achieve course objectives. The mean total score on the satisfaction form was 32.6 (SD= 6.6), which indicated that the students were satisfied with the community experiences. The mean total score on the community partners satisfaction score was 37 (SD= 8.0), which indicated a high level of satisfaction. The revised pediatric BSN community based curriculum research demonstrated acceptable achievement of student course objectives and student and partnering community agency satisfaction with the community based curriculum. This result enforces the movement towards expansion of community based educational curriculum in BSN programs that emphasize primary care practices: health education, prevention of common health problems, self care, and nursing assessment and management of minor health issues.
