Abstract:

Session presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013

Purpose: Regis College School of Nursing, Science and Health Professions has implemented an advanced education program for nursing faculty in Haiti in conjunction with national and international partners. The program addresses the acute nursing faculty shortage in Haiti and aims to improve the overall quality of nursing education and care in Haiti. Research confirms that nurses prepared at the baccalaureate or higher degree level have significantly better patient care outcomes (Aiken, L., JAMA September 26, 2003). This program is designed to enhance the education and credentials of Haitian nursing faculty who will lead in the advancement of nursing education for all nurses in Haiti.

Methods: The Regis College program is the initial implementation of a master’s program in nursing education for select Haitian nursing faculty. Evaluation of the project is two-fold, examining both implementation and impact. Measures for the former include enrollment/attrition rates, course evaluations. Impact will be assessed using pre and post formal surveys from key stake holders, including deans of nursing at the respective schools, affiliated health professionals and administrators.

Results: The faculty from Haiti enrolled in the master’s program practice concurrently as nursing faculty in Haiti, utilizing their new knowledge and skills to enhance the education of Haitian nurses. These nursing faculty are central to the education of over 1,100 nursing students enrolled in Ministry of Health accredited nursing schools. Improving education of these faculty and future nursing faculty has an exponential impact on the overall quality of nursing care in Haiti now and in the future.

Conclusions: Upon graduation from this master’s program, the first cohort of Haitian faculty will lead the institutionalization of the master’s program in Haiti for all future Haitian nursing faculty. Regis College faculty and administration have committed to educate and mentor three cohorts of nursing faculty from Haiti.
