Abstract:

The purpose of this case study was to determine which activities factor into
transformational learning that may occur as a result of completing a perioperative preparation program for registered nurses. Through the process of describing the lived experiences of the participants who have completed a perioperative nurse training program, it also assisted in informing pedagogical practice by helping to establish the extent of transformational learning that occurs. The role of a perioperative nurse is one that is demanding, knowledge intensive, and highly collaborative. Perioperative nurse educators need to understand the process of transformation in order to assist new perioperative nurses in successfully completing a perioperative nurse-training program. The Learning Activities Survey, a follow-up survey, and individual interviews were used
to accomplish a mixed method sequential study design. The research established that half of the participants had experienced transformational learning while half did not.
