Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: The purpose of this pilot study was to determine whether the addition of educational interventions to required clinical hours promotes confidence in triage decision making among nursing students enrolled in a final capstone course. METHODS: An experimental design was implemented with randomization of students (n = 14) to 1 of 3 intervention groups or the control group. The Triage Decision Making Inventory was used as a pretest-posttest. Educational strategies implemented included an Advanced Cardiac Life Support course and simulations with debriefing. Interventions were in addition to required clinical hours. RESULTS: A mixed analysis of variance was used to examine the 4 groups by time, with all groups exhibiting higher scores on the Triage Decision Making Inventory from the pretest to the posttest (F (3, 10) = 4.51, P = .03 (η(2) = .575). Students who received both the simulations and the Advanced Cardiac Life Support course demonstrated a significant difference across time. CONCLUSIONS: As nursing education evolves with the integration of technology, the combination of multiple pedagogies also can enhance confidence in triage decision making among experienced and novice nurses in emergency settings.
