Abstract:
This study sought to examine the experiences of nurse practitioner (NP) students and faculty involved in the Council of Ontario Programs of Nursing (COUPN) NP continuing education (CE) courses. Objectives were to gain insight into the CE opportunities available to NPs in Ontario and to evaluate the quality of the current courses offered to NPs. This study employed a mix-methods design. In Phase 1 we conducted an environmental scan of CE opportunities for NPs in Ontario, reviewed the 5 existing CE courses, and surveyed students who enrolled in the courses between 2004 and 2007. The purpose of the survey was to identify CE learning needs, preferred delivery methods, content for CE sessions, barriers to CE, and interest in interprofessional CE. In Phase 2, we conducted interviews with both students who had registered for any of the 5 courses and course developers. The impact of this project will be to increase the relevance and quality of the CE initiatives for NPs in Ontario. Results: Qualitative and quantitative data analysis is currently underway. Final results will be provided at the conference.
