Title:
FACULTY PERCEPTIONS ON VARIED SHIFT LENGTHS FOR STUDENT CLINICAL ROTATIONS
Abstract:
FACULTY PERCEPTIONS ON VARIED SHIFT LENGTHS FOR STUDENT CLINICAL ROTATIONS
Conference Sponsor:Western Institute of Nursing
Conference Year:2010
Author:Hannans, Jaime Alicia, RN
P.I. Institution Name:California State University, Chico
Title:MSN Student
Contact Address:2078 Arcane Street, Simi Valley, CA, 93065, USA
PURPOSES/AIMS:
Nursing shortages will greatly impact the United States health care system if solutions are not found to increase the number of new nurses able to enter the profession. Clinical site availability is one limiting factor in the growth of nursing programs. Alternatives to improve access to varied clinical shifts and to improve clinical site availability should be evaluated to find ways to increase the number of clinical slots for students. Evaluating what current nursing programs are doing to facilitate students in the clinical setting is a first step to determine potential new strategies in clinical site utilization.
RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND:
As Lippitt, Watson, and Westley (1958) have identified in their seven-step change theory, step one identifies the problem. It is identified that nursing programs have challenges in both scheduling and staffing clinical rotations. Steps two and three state assessment is the next course of action in the change process. Evaluating faculty perceptions of current practice and past experiences assesses the motivation for change (from faculty responses to the questionnaire), the capacity for change (addressing what has been done and what suggestions faculty provide in the questionnaire), and assesses the change agent (faculty willingness to make changes; faculty support and/or resources to make any changes to their program related to clinical rotation shift hours).
METHODS: RESULTS: and IMPLICATIONS:
This research study surveys nursing faculty from varied nursing programs throughout California. Descriptive statistics will be used to evaluate the RESULTS: of an online web survey distributed via convenience sampling to current nursing faculty of these programs. Questions evaluate nursing faculty perceptions and experiences of varied clinical shift types and durations, as well as their opinions about what strategies have been implemented to manage clinical placement difficulties.
Faculty experiences and modifications used in different programs may provide ideas related to how nursing faculty can utilize shift hours for meeting the clinical hour requirements. Clinical site availability is one of the three reasons for limitations in nursing program growth as reported by the California Board of Registered Nursing (2008). This study may lead to further research related to clinical practices, simulation lab use, and comparing alternative shift types.
