Purpose: The purpose of this nursing education evaluation study was to
appraise the effectiveness of a teaching strategy to assess competency in
delegation in a five credit leadership/management course for senior
baccalaureate students. The clinical settings used were eight medical and
surgical nursing units in two hospitals. Theoretical/Conceptual Framework:
Competency principles were identified from the literature and applied to
two Delegation Competency modules (entry for basic and advanced for RN
students) as they were initially developed and subsequently refined. The
framework of competency assessment is based on NIC (Nursing Interventions
Classification) labels, definitions, and activities (Dochterman &
Bulechek, 2004). Subjects: A total of 151 students over five semesters in
seven classes were the subjects of the evaluation process. They included
43 RN to BSN completion students and 108 basic students. Method: Self
paced, learner directed Delegation Competency modules were designed. An
iterative process of continuous quality improvement was followed. Each
semester the evaluation data of the previous semester['s students were
analyzed and the findings were incorporated to improve the competency
assessment process and modules. An evaluation tool adapted from Antony,
Standing & Hertz (2001), asked students to rate their delegation abilities
and experiences on 7 dimensions on a 1 to 10 rating scale including
comments. A narrative self-reflection section comprised the second part of
the evaluation tool. Mean scores, percentages, and qualitative analysis
were used. Results: A successful model for providing actual delegation
practice and resultant competency for students was developed as evidenced
by increasingly high ratings (range 7-10) on the evaluation tool.
Conclusions: This evaluation study resulted in a successful learning
experience in which BSN leadership students performed competently in
delegating at an appropriate professional level to unlicensed personnel in
the acute care work setting.
