Using an Educational Electronic Documentation System to Help Nursing Students Accurately Identify Nursing Diagnoses
Pobocik, Tamara J.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The use of technology and electronic medical records in healthcare has exponentially increased. This quantitative research project used a pretest/posttest design, and reviewed how an educational electronic documentation system helped nursing students to identify the accurate related to statement of the nursing diagnosis for the patient in the case study. Nursing education has the responsibility to prepare new nurses to enter the profession with the appropriate knowledge skills to care for patients. Students in the sample population were senior nursing students in a bachelor of science nursing program in the northeastern United States. Two distinct groups were used for a control and intervention group. The intervention group used the educational electronic documentation system for three class assignments. These assignments were unfolding case studies developed by the vendor of the educational electronic documentation system. Both groups were given a pretest and posttest case study. The Accuracy Tool was used to score the students responses to the related to statement of a nursing diagnosis given at the end of the case study. The scores of the Accuracy Tool were analyzed, and then the numeric scores were placed in SPSS, and the paired "t" test scores were analyzed for statistical significance. The intervention group's scores were statistically different from the pretest scores to posttest scores, while the control group's scores remained the same from pretest to posttest. The recommendation to nursing education is to use the educational electronic documentation system as a teaching pedagogy to help nursing students prepare for nursing practice.
