Generic Baccalaureate Nursing Data Project (1983-1986). Summary Report.
American Association of Colleges of Nursing, Washington, DC.
The Generic Baccalaureate Nursing Data Project, which expanded the national database on nursing education, is described. Over a 3-year period six national surveys of deans and senior nursing students were conducted to collect data in areas including recruitment, system interrelationships (institutional, community, and/or clinical agencies), student development, career plans, and student transition into clinical practice. A total of 465 deans' questionnaires and 2,336 students' questionnaires were assessed. Information was obtained on baccalaureate enrollment trends and enrollments influences, nursing program budget and support services, faculty development and workload determinants, and collaborative arrangements between nursing programs and clinical agencies. Prior to graduation, student data reflected considerable satisfaction with students' nursing and nonnursing coursework. The majority reported growth and development in all general and nursing academic areas. Graduate surveys of the same students studied factors influencing their choice of jobs, satisfaction with job-related factors, involvement in patient care decisions, and the impact of cost-containment measures on nursing practice. Most students were employed in hospitals and indicated that they felt adequately prepared for assuming their first nursing position. (Author/SW)
