Abstract

A need for preceptor training programs has been demonstrated by past and current literature.  The coach training program was developed for a second degree bachelor of nursing (BSN) program located at a school of nursing in Texas.  The second degree program utilizes the coach model platform to provide clinical experiences for nursing students.  Coaches are long-term preceptors who agree to oversee clinical experiences with a specific student for twelve consecutive months.  The registered nurses working on the units are competent and prudent nurses but they require additional information regarding the role of a coach and the needs of the nursing students during each semester. The coaches are not aware of the type of didactic content or concepts that the nursing students are studying and need specific information regarding the content.  Nurses provide patient teaching every day but extending the role to incorporate the task of coaching a student nurse required additional training.  The coaches needed the ability of synchronizing the clinical experience with didactic studies when possible.  The Clinical Objectives and Curriculum Highlights for Educating Students (COACHES) provided the specific training needed to assist the coaches in providing beneficial clinical education. The goal of the COACHES project was to synchronize the didactic and clinical courses with the ultimate outcome of providing the most beneficial clinical experiences for the nursing students.  The data analysis demonstrated that the training sessions were successful.  By increasing the nurses’ abilities and comfort levels the role of coaching was improved and the outcomes and goals were achieved.
