Abstract or Summary
  • This investigation into nursing education in Nevada was initiated to assess both the quality and frequency of performance of 52 nursing behaviors, arranged in six groupings. Recent graduates were asked to evaluate how well they believed they were prepared to perform these behaviors related to teaching, leadership, planning & evaluation, communication, clinical care, and professional development. The group to be studied included 102 nursing graduates and 68 of their supervisors. The nurses were graduates of the six nursing programs in Nevada who finished their nursing education in 1991 and 1992. A survey was administered to the nursing graduate to assess both the frequency and quality of performance of these nursing behaviors as well as an evaluation of their educational preparation. This self-assessment was then compared to the responses of their supervisor. The statistical analysis of the data revealed few differences in either frequency or quality of performance between the assessments of the graduate and the supervisor or between the ADN degree and the BSN degree. The survey did however, reveal consistently lower scores in the areas of leadership and professional development, as well as low scores in satisfaction with educational preparation regardless of type of degree granted.
