Title:
The Effect of Orientation on Faculty Comfort Level in Implementing High-Fidelity Simulation in an Associate Degree Nursing Program
Abstract:
The Effect of Orientation on Faculty Comfort Level in Implementing High-Fidelity Simulation in an Associate Degree Nursing Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2010
Author:Williams, Donna J., DNP, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Itawamba Community College
Title:Nursing Instructor
21st INRC [Evidence-Based Practice Presentation] Methods: An instrument (Jones, 2005) to measure faculty comfort levels associated with HFS equipment pre- and post-orientation was used with the authorÆs permission (Appendixes A and C). This survey contained demographic information, years of experience, educational degree and questions about simulation, comfort, time, and technology. This survey was administered to faculty as a pre-assessment to orientation to HFS. Following orientation, the faculty completed a post-assessment survey to measure perceived comfort levels, support systems, time management, and satisfaction of learning experience related to HFS.Analysis: Data were analyzed with the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 15.0 for Windows (SPSS). An alpha level of .05 was used for all statistical tests. The Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed ranks test was used to test the significance of changes in pre- and post- orientation comfort levels with (Part C of instrument with 1 being "no comfort" and 5 being "total comfort"). Conclusions included (a) faculty members were not comfortable utilizing HFS prior to orientation, (b) faculty members estimated 75% to one full semester of release time was needed to plan, implement, and evaluate simulation usage in the nursing curriculum, and (c) evidence generated supports a formal faculty orientation as an effective method of initiating faculty participation in the utilization of this HFS technology.
