4380.1 Nursing Education Without Walls

Tuesday, October 28, 2008: 4:30 PM
This session uses a myriad of papers to discuss nursing education methodology for public health nursing students. Using simulation activities allows the learner to experience a cultural encounter, which enhances their ability to provide culturally appropriate care to diverse populations. Healthy People 2010 and the Bureau of Health Professions have established goals to increase the proportion of under represented populations in the nursing workforce. This paper uses career ladders to increase their student diversity in a four year baccalaureate program. Use of online technology assists students to understand global health issues since not all students have the luxury of traveling to another country.
Session Objectives: Discuss the use of simulation for students to develop cultural competency. Articulate resources essential to met the needs of "at risk" students to facilitate their success in nursing education programs. Identify the type of preparation students need in order to participate in an online assignment. Identify the type of preparation students need in order to participate in an online assignment.
