Abstract:
Aim: Nurses are committed to life-long learning to insure quality nursing practice although results from research have been inconclusive in demonstrating outcomes. Qualitative methods provide new ways of examining how nurses use knowledge from continuing education by describing lived experiences and observations of nurses in practice. Underserved areas have particular interest in maximizing resources by promotion of knowledge use from continuing education participation. Purpose: The study presents descriptions from the perspective of purse administrators in an underserved area of nurses' application and use of knowledge gained from CE participation. Participants: Executive interviews were conducted with a purposive, convenience sample of 10 upper level nurse managers having administrative authority representative of the 11 hospitals and 2 schools of nursing in the region. Findings: Summarized within a model of change, learning was expressed in personal and professional dimensions including stimulus for innovation, educational and career mobility, networking, sharing knowledge, problem solving, and improving patient care. Implications: Change indicators were the infrastructure linking the implementation in professional practice. Shrinking resources, felt acutely in underserved areas, mandate attention to learner needs, motivations, and application of knowledge to achieve maximum benefit in professional practice.
