Abstract:
Problem: Consultation with experts in CNS practice is invaluable to students transitioning to advanced practice nurse roles. Opportunities have been limited by geographic constraints. Purpose: To describe an online consultation experience between students and CNS experts. Significance: Distance learning models offer creative solutions to educational outcomes. This session describes the use of simple web technology for an electronic dialogue among CNS students and local and national experts. Practice Innovation/Methods: Six CNS role practicum students and five expert CNSs held a two week internet-based discussion of student concerns related to role transition, including: certification; negotiation, securing a position; developing a career trajectory; and future direction of the CNS role. Three experts were nationally recognized CNSs and two were graduates of the students' program. Evaluation/Outcomes: Both students and CNS experts were enthusiastic about the dialogue. Students received detailed guidance regarding certification and job searches, and gained local and national perspectives on the CNS role. Interpretation/Conclusion: A networking tool such as electronic dialogue is useful to ease role transition from educational to practice settings or among CNS groups in a hospital or community environment. Implications for Practice: Electronic dialogue is an easy to use strategy that can be modified to encompass a variety of learner needs and consultant expertise.
