Educational needs of Nurse Administrators in the Middle East
Abstract:
Educational needs of Nurse Administrators in the Middle East
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:June, 2001
Author:Tumulty, Gail, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Loyola University
Objective: To guide educational program development, a collaborative research project was conducted to specifically determine the educational needs of directors of nursing in Ministry of Health hospitals in the largest gulf country, Saudi Arabia. Design: A cross-sectional descriptive design was used to determine the most pressing educational needs of nurse administrators in the Middle East. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: One hundred Directors of Nursing participated in the study. They were all working as Directors of Nursing in Ministry of Health hospitals in Saudi Arabia, the largest Middle Eastern country. Conceptual Framework: The framework for the study was based on the 11 management functions as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO definition is extremely useful because it specifies what needs to be done to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and equity of the health services in the context of a national health system. This study was modeled after study of nursing management and leadership in the Nordic countries. Methods: Using the framework described above, the instrument designed by Henry to study nursing management and leadership in the Nordic countries was adapted for use in the Middle East and mailed to all Directors of Nursing working in the Ministry of Health Hospitals in Saudi Arabia. Findings: The 10 areas of greatest and least knowledge and skill of nurse administrators in the Middle East are identified and discussed. Conclusions: The nurse administrators in this study feel able to identify and deal with problems of a day-to-day nature but yearn for development related to broader, more long-term issues. These issues are identified and discussed. Implications: Through this research, much more is now known about the learning needs of nurse administrators in the Middle East and targeted efforts have been initiated to meet some of these needs. The data from this study can guide planning of educational programs for the development of nursing leaders by others. Just as the research presented here was modeled after a similar study of nursing leaders in Nordic countries, this study can serve as a model for additional international studies.
