Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Objectives: The purpose of this study was to explore barriers and challenges to best practice for primary health care nurses in Saudi Arabia. Methods: The data were collected from nurses through self-completed questionnaires during November and December 2007. One hundred and seventy seven nurses working in primary health care facilities were randomly selected from public primary health care centers in Riyadh City, Saudi Arabia. The questionnaire was designed to collect data on nurses' perception towards barriers and challenges of nursing academic qualification and education. Data were presented and analyzed in a descriptive fashion. Results: Nurses reported a number of barriers that are responsible for limiting nurse qualification and education. In particular, inappropriate distribution of academic health facilities, university hospitals and continuing medical education were the most important barriers for better performance of nurses working in primary health care. Conclusion: Academic qualification and education for primary health care nurses is an integral part of the nursing profession. Health care decision makers should overcome the barriers reported by nurses in order to acquire them with necessary academic education and up-to-date knowledge, which in turn improves the quality of health care provided to patients.
