Abstract:

Poster presented on: Tuesday, November 19, 2013, Monday, November 18, 2013

The outcomes of nursing education are guided by three documents from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) including The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (2008), The Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing (2011), and The Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice (2006). These Essentials guide curriculum development, identify outcomes for program graduates, and provide some insight into the skills needed for professional communication. Nurses working in collaboration with other health providers must deliver high quality evidence-based care in increasingly complex health care settings. Development of effective communication skills enhances the delivery of care and promotes collaboration with other health providers.  One form of professional communication is scholarly writing. To effectively teach students appropriate writing skills, nurse educators need to understand how to develop scholarly writing across all levels of nursing education.  This presentation uses evidence-based literature to develop strategies to improve writing.  Essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes associated with scholarly writing development across all levels of nursing education are identified.   Implementing a comprehensive writing development plan that uses the knowledge, skills, and attitudes may help faculty develop scholarly student writers that display consistent, gradual, and ongoing improvement in their writing.   Faculty teaching at each level of nursing education can focus on developing knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to writing and ensure that program graduates are appropriately prepared to enter the next level of nursing education. Scholarly writing development is essential to advance the discipline by disseminating knowledge, promote professional collaboration, and enhance delivery of care.
