Abstract:
The problem of too few doctorally prepared nurses, especially minority nurses, is further complicated by the paucity of those with research expertise in health policy, cancer nursing care or health disparities. Nurse leaders from our NCI-designated Cancer Center formed a partnership with the nursing faculty from a nearby minority- serving university to design, pilot, and evaluate a fast track BS to PhD program, enabling both institutions to take advantage of their complimentary resources. The purpose of this NCI-funded project was to develop a training and mentorship program that would prepare PhD nursing students, especially under-represented minority, to become educators and scientists with expertise in health policy targeted to cancer nursing care and health disparities During this first year of a three-year plan, we implemented the following interventions: 1. Formed Internal Advisory Board that meets monthly and is comprised of nurses with expertise in research or teaching in cancer care, health policy, health disparities, PhD in Nursing programs and/or working with minority student and research populations 2. Formed an External Advisory Board to provide counsel to the project leaders 3. Planned and developed a training and mentorship program 4. Planned a community-based educational program for cancer prevention 5. Began marketing and recruitment for the program. Formal evaluation is planned. Our first year goals have been met: the curriculum has been developed, integrating content on theory and clinical research methods, cancer nursing care and health disparity issues into the universityÆs existing PhD Program in Nursing; a comprehensive review of existing (54) fast track programs has been completed; focus groups of potential students have been held to collect additional information to guide further curriculum development. A database has been created of nurse scientists and minority leaders to serve as mentors to the PhD students. First-year student recruitment goals have been met. Information about an innovative graduate program to create more doctorally prepared nurses with research knowledge and skill to address issues in health policy, oncology and health disparity has significant implications for oncology nursing practice, research and education.
