Integration of Andragogy into Preceptorship
Leigh, Katherine; Whitted, Kelli; Hamilton, Bernita
Journal of Adult Education, v44 n1 p9-17 2015
Return of registered nurses to school dictates that mobility programs integrate principles and design elements of adult learning theory. The Decisional Matrix for Preceptorship Experiences (DMPE) was designed to support mutual needs assessment and identification of individualized clinical learning activities. Using the Andragogy in Practice Inventory (API), this project evaluated the extent to which the DMPE reflected the principles and design elements of andragogy in the final preceptorship experience in the RN-BSN program. Participants' ratings on the API supports that the DMPE was reflective of adult learning principles and design elements. Key course indicators support effectiveness of the DMPE.
