Abstract:The State Board of Nursing mandated continuing education competency requirements for nursing re-licensure in 2017. Nurses need continuing education that is affordable, accessible, and culturally sensitive. The Hawaiʻi State Center for Nursing (HSCN) obtained direct American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) CNE provider status to provide quality CNE programs. The nurses working in underserved agencies and living in rural areas have a higher need for CNE than those who have more resources. Objective: HSCN aimed to extend the reach and impact of CNE programs by developing more nurses (Nurse Planners) skilled in delivering quality programs. The goal of this project was to expand professional opportunities for nurses in Hawai’i. Method: A provider-directed learner-paced modular process was developed to train participants. Five modules were constructed, reviewed, edited, administered and evaluated. Each module included a pre-test, PowerPoint slide presentation, and post-test measure of learning. Results: The six nurses from a convenience sample of HSCN Board members and their delegates completed a total of 10 module evaluations, 12 pre-tests, and 12 post-tests. Overall effectiveness was high (4.8 on a 5-point scale), pace was “just right” (M=3, SD=0), and difficulty was not too easy or difficult (M=3.08, SD=0.319). The post-test score (91.1%) significantly improved over the pre-test score (71.3%), t (22) = 5.66, p=0.0007, 95% CI= (30.76, 8.57). Conclusion: The Nurse Planner modules were a highly effective format for delivering content on the educational design process. This provider-directed, learner-paced model will provide an efficient, quality sustainable format for the Nurse Planners at HSCN to use to train additional Nurse Planners.
