Abstract:
It is well known that the practice of nursing requires a strong education to be able to respond to the health needs of the population jointly with families, and professionals in other disciplines (Sigma Theta Tau, 1996). The list of essential knowledge to be taught continues to grow, while schools must continue to limit the duration of nursing programs to prevent the gap between the need for care and the limited number of nurses from widening. Starting with a caring-nursing perspective (Benner & Wrubel, 1989; Watson, 1988; etc) and a cognitive-learning perspective (Lasnier, 2000; Tardif, 2006), we, at the University of Montreal, developed a new baccalaureate program designed to prepare nurses by giving them the tools to exercise a sound clinical judgment and the power to act with autonomy and leadership. Our program has identified the core competencies of nurse clinicians, and the essential knowledge of the family of health experiences for which we developed educational activities. This presentation will provide a description of the program, a sample of the educational strategies employed, and some evaluations of the program from the point of view of the graduates and the clinical professionals regarding the preparation of beginning nurses.
