Development of Tele-Lecture and Associated Media Systems for the Improvement of Nursing Education in West Virginia.
Puzzuoli, David A.; Fazzaro, Charles J.
A feasibility study explored the use of the telelecture technique for continuing nursing education in the state of West Virginia. Telelecture is a two-way amplified communications system designed to bring together individuals and/or groups by means of a regular telephone network. The results of the study showed that it is an effective technique which brought continuing education courses to nurses throughout the state. The nurses who were taught by the telelecture method performed as well on tests as nurses taught by conventional methods. In addition the cost per student of the telelecture method compared favorably with the cost of traditional continuing nursing education programs. (JY)
