Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, September 19, 2016: The purpose of this poster presentation is to describe the study of RN-BSN online students in a nursing leadership course by exploring their knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSA) gap regarding the quality and safety education for nurses (QSEN) core competencies developed by the American Association of colleges of Nursing QSEN Education Consortium (2012). This study compares the KSAs of the QSEN core competencies in two courses at Clarion University of Pennsylvania’s online RN- BSN program using the Quality Improvement Skills, Knowledge, and Attitudes (QulSKA) questionnaire in a modified format.  In 2003, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) challenged academia to develop learning strategies consistent with their curricula whereby nurses would acquire competencies in leadership and quality improvement. Education at the BSN level in leadership and quality improvement is critical, yet the optimal approach for educating BSN nurses in leadership and quality improvement has not been fully identified. Best practices for education for leadership and quality improvement include combing didactic and experimental learning (American Association of Colleges of Nursing QSEN Education Consortium, 2012; Gussmeyer & Moses, 2014; Lyle-Enrosolo & Waxman, 2016) The goal of this study was to explore the KSA of online RN-BSN students prior to learning leadership skills and after developing a quality improvement process proposal. An additional goal was to explore the student learning outcomes of KSA between a 15 week and a 7.5-week online course. Reviewers of the oral poster will learn about the differences in RN-BSN quality improvement and leadership knowledge in online curricular instruction using the QSEN undergraduate core competencies.  Reviewers will also be able to discuss the curricular changes need to enable students to practice the QSEN competencies in an online classroom. Findings of this study will help to enhance the understanding of educational interventions that address leadership and quality improvement in the undergraduate nursing education.
