Ponzo, Kathryn M.; LeNoir, Linda
The purpose of this study was to research needs analysis, one of the basic components of planning an educational offering for practitioners in nursing. Also demonstrated was an application of the knowledge relative to needs analysis within nursing continuing education. Needs analysis refers to a systematic assessment of what the potential participants want and/or need relative to their continued learning. A demonstration study which would include both felt and real needs was devised. The model consisted of the Professional Activity Study (PAS) and a questionnaire which was administered to nurses in four hospitals. The major finding was that a high priority in PAS and a high priority in the questionnaire could bring together the needs of the institution and the nurses into one program. (LS)
