Siegele, Dorothy; Henderson, Billie
A one-year Post-Master's Fellowship in Oncology Nursing Education for nurse educators was developed through the collaboration of San Jose State University (California) and University of Alabama at Birmingham. The project was designed to: develop or update undergraduate/graduate oncology nursing programs; provide continuing education for practicing nurses; and promote change roles such as consultant, researcher, or administrator. The model curriculum can be used with an outcome evaluation plan. Staff recruitment and other activities were undertaken, and the model curriculum was evaluated longitudinally at the two universities. Information is included on the selection and admission of fellows, characteristics of fellows, and orientation to the program. Course objectives and core concepts are provided. The scope of the evaluation is described, and the evaluation results are presented. Finally, 14 conclusions and recommendations are included. Appended materials include: criteria for preceptors; the conceptual framework of the curriculum; brief course descriptions; the evaluation plan; activity guides; evaluation interview forms; samples of knowledge and attitude test items; samples of skills checklists; application forms; and tests used in the evaluation of participants.
