Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: The final course of our MN program was re-conceptualized and re-designed several years ago with the intention of advancing the educational impact of the course. Changes included changing the name of the course to Advanced Nursing Practice Scholarship, re-balancing the learning experience to value both the development a preceptor relationship with an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) and taking charge of a practice initiative, shifting to a blended format which included five seminars on campus and five on-line posting weeks, opening the potential for students to complete their APN scholarship with one of the approved faculty international partners, and adding the challenge of submitting an abstract for peer review and preparing a poster for an Advanced Nursing Practice Symposium on the final day of the course. Initially students voiced concerns about the high expectations in the revised course. However, these concerns were balanced by the student appreciation for the clear format, especially the structure which ensured students who completed all assignments on time would complete all requirements for the MN program on the final day of the course. Student, faculty, and preceptor feedback supports the advanced educational impact of this re-conceptualized and re-designed final MN course.
