Distance learning students in “communities of practice” An analysis of nursing education offered in three different learning programmes.

Seminar.net , 2008,
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to understand the impact of the distance learning programme on learning processes in nursing education. It was the purpose to highlight the differences and similarities in the traditional nursing programme vs. the distance learning programme. Empirically, the article builds on a comparative study of two Danish nursing schools and three different nursing classes, including one based on the distance learning programme. The three different nursing classes cover the ways of studying in nursing education in Denmark. Observations were conducted with the classes as a whole. Interviews were conducted with 7 students from the distance learning programme, 6 from the traditional programme and 5 from the credit transfer class. The interpretative approach was selected to form the background of this study. The observation, as well as the interview guide was formed on the basis of Etienne Wengers theory: “Learning in communities of practice”. The analysis was based on concepts from the same theoretical background, as the observations and interviews. Findings from the study show that the distance-learning students have a selective and targeted way of engaging in communities of practice. Findings in relation to age, to being well prepared and feeling responsible for own learning, in relation to doing a self study and to knowledge forms, seem to have precise relevance for the differences between the ways of studying in nursing education.
The Nursing Shortage: Solutions for the Short and Long Term
Nevidjon, B., Erickson, J
Online Journal of Issues in Nursing , 2001,
Abstract: With predictions that this nursing shortage will be more severe and have a longer duration than has been previously experienced, traditional strategies implemented by employers will have limited success. The aging nursing workforce, low unemployment, and the global nature of this shortage compound the usual factors that contribute to nursing shortages. For sustained change and assurance of an adequate supply of nurses, solutions must be developed in several areas: education, healthcare deliver systems, policy and regulations, and image. This shortage is not solely nursing's issue and requires a collaborative effort among nursing leaders in practice and education, health care executives, government, and the media. This paper poses several ideas of solutions, some already underway in the United States, as a catalyst for readers to initiate local programs.

Exploring pedagogical competence in a distance education nursing program: A case study  [cached]
Anna Vioral
Journal of Nursing Education and Practice , 2013, DOI: 10.5430/jnep.v3n9p36
Abstract: The proliferation of distance education programs and online learning presents tremendous opportunities to expand nursing educational offerings. The emergence of online learning into nursing education has also resulted in significant changes in pedagogy and institutional leadership. This case study investigates how leaders address pedagogical competence in a nursing program offering distant education courses according to selected national standards. This case study utilizes a triangulation assessment to address two research questions describing the experiences of a nursing program offering online courses. The Contingency Leadership Theory provides the theoretical framework. Data collection methods include a pre-interview assessment survey, telephone interviews of key respondents, and review of additional evidence. The results of this investigation reveal themes derived from data collection including technological environment, pedagogy, and leadership. The findings of this study may assist nursing leadership in their efforts to address pedagogical competence and to provide technological resources as nursing programs design or redesign their online education. Future research suggestions include exploring how pedagogical instructional design skills can be integrated into the course development process and examining the possible connections between pedagogical competence and program outcomes.
The nursing shortage: a worldwide problem
Booth, Rachel Z.;
Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-11692002000300013
Abstract: a worldwide shortage of nurses has been acknowledged by the multidisciplinary global advisory group of the world health organization. the shortage is caused by an increased demand for nurses, while fewer people are choosing nursing as a profession and the current nurses worldwide are aging. the shortage applies to nurses in practice as well as the nurse faculty who teach students. the inter-country recruitment and migration of nurses from developing countries to developed countries exacerbates the problem. although public opinion polls identifies the nurse as the person who makes the health care system work for them, the conditions of the work environment in which the nurse functions is unsatisfactory and must change. numerous studies have shown the positive effects on the nurse of a healthy work environment and the positive relationships between nursing care and patient outcomes. it is important that government officials, insurance companies, and administrators and leaders of health care systems acknowledge and operationalize the value of nurses to the health care system in order to establish and maintain the integrity and viability of that system.

Optimizing the learning potential for the distance learning students - Focusing on the tension between experience and competence. An analysis of nursing education offered in three different learning programmes. The focus is on analysing the distance learning programme in relation to the other learning programmes.  [cached]

Abstract: The distance learning programme has made its entrance into nursing education, and many see it as a break with the education’s traditions of teaching in the classroom, in practise rooms and at the patient’s bedside (Chaffin & Maddux 2004)(5).Traditionally, many of the technical skills and personal qualities that nurses must acquire are learned through interaction with others. The distance learning programme has therefore given rise to some new problems and challenges, and this article discusses some of these.Empirically, the article builds on a comparative study of three student nurse classes from two Danish nursing schools, including one based on the distance learning programme. By following both distance learning and traditional nursing students in their clinical training, light is cast upon the differences and similarities that may exist in the clinical skills and competences that the students gain under the two programmes.Theoretically the article builds on Etienne Wengers theory on learning in communities of practice, focusing on the relationship between experience and competence in learning related communities of practice (Wenger 1998; Wenger 2004)(36)(37).The article contributes with findings that are related to the differences between the programmes and the different types of students that each programme attracts. The article argues that an increased didactic and pedagogical focus upon the field of tension between experience and competence will enable an optimisation of the learning conditions of the distance learning students in their clinical teaching. The article, in conclusion, thus places focus on the questions surrounding teaching design in relation to the distance learning programme.
