Abstract:
In light of the significant nursing shortage, and waning interest in Oncology, the need to recruit students at the high school level and develop an interest in Oncology is both relevant and important. The literature describes in detail the need for novel approaches to address the shortage, providing an ample background for this program. The purpose and rationale, supported by evidence in the literature, is clearly defined and described. The conceptual model used is an educational model, steeped in hands-on experience and acute observation. The interventional program does accomplish the purpose of opening the door of nursing in general, and oncology in particular, to the high school student population. The varied experiences in this pilot program were exciting and appropriate, and allowed the student a monitored, but independent hands-on, experience. The project goals are evaluated as an individual case study, as the pilot has just been initiated. The outcomes are applicable to Oncology nursing and have been very positive. The implications for Oncology nursing practice, particularly in educating the high school population, have been enormous and their use in the future is wide open. Suggestions are included for specific site changes and experiences, as are suggestions for growth of the program.
