An ongoing research program that involves undergraduate nursing students developing evidence-based practice projects in clinical settings is highly valued by both students and clinical nursing staff. Students describe extensive learning about research and evidence-based practice and clinical staff report interest in continuing work with students. This research project involved two years of intense involvement with senior and junior undergraduate nursing students in one community agency. Students obtained evidence on topics of importance to agency staff, led New Knowledge Discussion Groups, and collaborated with staff in getting practice guidelines incorporated into patient care. Evaluations of student learning and staff engagement were completed and are continuing. Following the first year of the project (2008-2009), brief post evaluation data on student learning and satisfaction was obtained. During the second year (2009-2010), more extensive pre and post evaluations of student outcomes are still in progress. Staff involved students during the first year of the project and administration made a decision to continue funding of the undergraduate student project, however, limited process and outcome data was collected. During the second year, forms for each request describe the projected and actual outcomes. Information for follow-up related to each project will also be completed in greater detail. Additionally, agency staff will be asked to complete written evaluations of student involvement in the agency. Further, because of the extensive use of expert consultants during the first year, future consultant connections will be summarized and evaluated in subsequent reports. Consultants who were knowledgeable on the topic requested by staff were engaged periodically at the lead faculty member's discretion. For the second year of the project, more extensive information on the use of the consultants and the outcomes related to consultant involvement will also be collected. The presentation will include a faculty member, an agency administrator and an undergraduate student who were involved in both years of the project.
