Abstract:
Purpose: This study describes a format for teaching CNS acute care, utilizing the Synergy Model and analyzes the outcomes as professional changes are described by the students and graduates after the completion of the course/program. Significance: As the education of the CNS has evolved, the Synergy Model's educational use is not clearly defined. The perceptions of both the teachers and learners are not clearly studied or documented. Therefore the significance of this study is to explore one format of this educational tool and some professional consequences as perceived by the learners. Background/Design: This is an exploratory, descriptive, qualitative study. Methods: A qualitative mixed collection technique is utilized for this study. Data is collected from the students and graduate's academic work, research, open written questionnaire, and personal interview. The study is under the ethical approval of the Florida Southern College Internal Review Board. Issues related to confidentiality of information, are addressed. Graduates and students are reassured that no data is included and their names or pictures will not be used without their written consent. Findings: The data will be interpreted using content analysis. Five themes will be sought: (1) Student's reflecting on their connections within the Synergy Model, (2) Aspects of producing clinical connections with the Synergy Model within their written work (3.) Changes in their professional employment/stature and (5) New nursing connections of local, regional or national influence. Conclusions: This study will increase the awareness of the Synergy Model among practitioners, educators and students. Hopefully it will assist educators to investigate new interpretation of the model and find its personal use to be both reflective and therapeutic in value. The process of studying our own use of this model allows us to step outside the classroom treadmill to better understand, accept and reshape what we do over and over in the clinical-education arena. This study will support an examination of one's experiences as a means of understanding the Synergy Model and its use in the classroom. Implications for Practice: The interpretation of the findings of this study should be viewed with caution given the qualitative design and small number of participants. Other studies of outcomes using the Synergy Model are strongly encouraged.
