Abstract:
The Ontario Primary Health Care (PHC) NP Program is offered by 10 university nursing programs comprising the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing (COUPN) consortium. The COUPN Deans/Directors serve as the Steering Committee of the consortium and are responsible for making policy decisions. Regional coordinators manage the program on a provincial level and make recommendations on developmental, implementation, and operational issues. A common curriculum is delivered primarily by distance education to all universities in the consortium. The purpose of this study was to conduct a process evaluation of the recently implemented governance structure of the Council of Ontario Programs of Nursing (COUPN) Nurse Practitioner (NP) consortium. The primary research question was: How effective is the current governance structure in providing leadership to the NP consortium? A mixed methods design was used which included the distribution of surveys to all participants involved in the governance structure with follow-up interviews and focus groups (7). Both qualitative and quantitative data are currently being analyzed and the results will be shared at the conference. Study findings will inform strengths and areas for improvement in the consortium governance structure and NP education in Ontario and will guide future curriculum and faculty development.
