Abstract:
Sessions presented on Saturday, November 7, 2015 and Sunday, November 8, 2015: Background: The Graduate Nurse Education Demonstration Project (GNE) is a new federally funded demonstration project directed at increasing the number of primary care nurse practitioners in concert with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Since this program is new and only recently funded in 2012, there is no published literature about the perceptions of students that participate in the GNE. Aims: The aim of this study is to explore the student nurse practitioner (NP) perceptions regarding participation in the GNE. Research questions for this study include: 1) what are the students’ perceptions of participation in the GNE; 2). what are the students’ perceptions of the benefit of the GNE; 3) what are the students’ perceptions of the negative aspects of participation in the GNE Methods: An online survey was distributed to graduating NP students at the conclusion of their program. The survey consisted of 17 Likert items and 3 narrative questions. Descriptive analysis was performed on the quantitative data; content analysis was performed on narrative data. Results: 56 responses were received with proportional representation from all three NP tracks. Item analysis reveals overall agreement with item statements. Narrative responses indicate that students perceived the GNE as helpful with placements, but needs further refinement. Other narrative responses indicate that the GNE is a positive as long as preceptors aren’t precepting only for payment. Participants noted that GNE is beneficial for the profession. Conclusions: This study helps to explore student perceptions of the GNE project. The overall response to the GNE from the student perspective was positive for the first year. The results will be compared to results from subsequent graduating cohorts in the 4 year funding cycle of the GNE. Results will be used to improve GNE processes and GNE information for students.
