TEACHING CLINICAL NURSING BY CLOSED CIRCUIT TV.
GRIFFIN, GERALD J.; KINSINGER, ROBERT E.
TO TEST THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION IN TRAINING NURSES, THIS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT EVALUATED THREE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS OF 15 STUDENTS AND FOUR CONTROL GROUPS OF 10 STUDENTS. IN ADDITION TO INCREASING TEACHING CAPACITY BY FIVE STUDENTS PER INSTRUCTOR, THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS WERE NOTED FROM SEVEN EVALUATIVE QUESTIONS POSED TO STUDENTS, INSTRUCTORS, AND PERSONNEL. MORE FREQUENT CONTACT AND INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION ENHANCES THE SAFETY FACTOR, AND THERE WERE NO NEGATIVE PATIENT REACTIONS TO THE PROJECT. SKILL DIFFERENCES AMONG GROUPS WERE MINIMAL IN BOTH PERFORMANCE AND WRITING OF CLINICAL RECORDS. THERE WAS NO RESISTANCE TO THE EXPERIMENT ON THE PART OF STUDENTS, ALTHOUGH RESISTANCE OF FACULTY VARIED. HOSPITAL PERSONNEL GAVE POSITIVE SUPPORT AND REPORTED NO INTERFERENCE WITH HOSPITAL ROUTINE. THE FACULTY FELT MODIFICATIONS WERE NEEDED TO ADAPT TEACHING METHODS TO TELEVISION, ESPECIALLY SINCE IDEAS MUST BE COMMUNICATED VERBALLY RATHER THAN DEMONSTRATED ON THE SPOT. HOWEVER, THE MORE FREQUENT INSTANTANEOUS AND INDIVIDUALIZED OBSERVATIONS, FREE OF DISTRACTION, WON STAFF SUPPORT. NEW POSSIBILITIES WILL BE EXPLORED WITH THE USE OF PORTABLE VIDEO TAPE RECORDERS AND KINESCOPE, WHICH ENABLES STUDENTS TO REVIEW PERFORMANCE AND PRESERVE VALUABLE LEARNING EXPERIENCES. (DE)
