Continuing education needs of nurses employed in nursing facilities.
J Contin Educ Nurs. 1999 Sep-Oct; 30(5):219-28.JC

Abstract

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the self-perceived learning needs of nurses, both RNs and licensed practical nurses (LPNs), employed in nursing facilities. Questionnaires were used to gather data from 319 nurses employed in 14 nursing facilities, representing 10% of all nursing facilities in North Carolina. A total of 164 nurses returned usable questionnaires. The nurses indicated a large number of continuing education needs, with Management Skills, Drug Therapy/Interactions, and Behavioral Problems being particularly important. Night shift nurses and nurse educators had different leaning needs when compared to other subsets of nurses.
