Reasons Identified by Associate Degree Nursing Students for Planning to Attend a Baccalaureate Completion Nursing Program Within Five Years of Graduation

Candice Kiskadden, BSN, RN


Abstract overview

Abstract Overview

  • Mixed design, descriptive study

  • Approximately 100 nursing students

  • Data collected using anonymous survey technique

  • King’s Theory of Goal Attainment

  • Nursing programs can benefit from findings


Why is a bsn important

Why is a BSN important?

Higher functioning in critical skills:

Critical thinking

Communication

Leadership

Assessment

Teaching

Counseling

Case Management

Health Promotion

(Rosseter, 2012)


Encouraging more bsns

Encouraging more BSNs

  • Very few ADN RNs advance to BSN

  • BSN RNs have better patient outcomes

  • ANA, NLN, AACN support BSN as entry-level nursing

  • BSN education equals higher level of critical clinical reasoning


Background of the problem

Background of the Problem

  • Three pre-licensure pathways for RNs

    • Diploma

    • Associate degree

    • Baccalaureate degree

  • Same NCLEX-RN

  • 80% overlap in RN responsibilities in ADN versus BSN

  • Other healthcare professionals require a master’s degree


Candice kiskadden bsn rn

To identify reasons why second year associate degree nursing students are planning to or not to pursue their baccalaureate degree within five years.

Statement of the Problem


Candice kiskadden bsn rn

What reasons were identified by final semester, second year ADN students as contributing to their decision to obtain their BSN within 5 years?

Research Question


Need for the study

Need for the Study

  • A gap in the current literature why ADN students do not choose RN-BSN Programs

  • Insight to encourage current ADN students to pursue a BSN

  • Advancement of professional nursing


Significance of the problem

Significance of the Problem

  • 2010 IOM “The Future of Nursing” recommends at least 80% of nursing workforce have BSNs

  • 2008-2010 data from US Dept. of HHS: only 44.6% are BSN prepared

  • RNs with a BSN are prepared to problem solve at a higher level

  • RNs with a BSN have better patient outcomes


Assumptions

Assumptions

  • Student nurses who participate will give honest answers to survey questions.

  • Findings will be based solely on the perspective of the student nurses.

  • King’s Theory of Goal Attainment provides a sound theoretical foundation for this study.


Limitations

Limitations

  • Small sample size

  • Data from one geographic location in NW PA

  • Sample from one private Catholic university

  • Sample size may not be depictive of the focus as a whole

  • Participating student nurses may not represent the population whole

  • King’s Theory of Goal Attainmentmay not be an accurate reflection of the reasons identified


Literature review

Literature Review

Comparison of Baccalaureate and Non-baccalaureate Nursing Programs

The Educational Impact on Nursing

RN-BSN Programs: Benefits, Incentives, and Barriers

Conceptual Framework


Overview

Overview

  • Patient outcomes drive the nursing profession

  • Schools have adapted to healthcare needs

  • No real change in practice for BSN has occurred

  • Emphasis needs to be placed on the importance of a BSN to be a professional nurse.


Comparison of baccalaureate and non baccalaureate nursing programs

Comparison of Baccalaureate and Non-baccalaureate Nursing Programs

  • Nursing supervisors often do not rate performance of BSNs and ADNs differently

    • Less perceived value of BSN

    • Contradicts nursing literature

  • If nursing supervisors do not value BSN-prepared RNs, non-baccalaureate RNs are less likely to value BSN

  • Health care facilities with increased BSN RNs have better patient outcomes


The educational impact on nursing

The Educational Impact on Nursing

  • Aiken, Clarke, Cheung, Sloane, and Silber (2003):

    • 10% increase in the proportion of BSN RNs equaled a 5% decrease in patient mortality and odds of failure to rescue

  • Friese, Lake, Aiken, Silber, and Sochalski (2008):

    • Increased BSN RNs had lower odds of patient death and lower levels of failure to rescue

  • With RN-BSN Programs, a culturally, socio-economically and ethnically diverse RN workforce is possible

  • Recognition of importance of RN-BSN Programs from nursing governing bodies


Rn bsn programs benefits incentives and barriers

RN-BSN Programs: Benefits, Incentives, and Barriers

  • Improved patient outcomes

  • Opportunity for all RNs to be BSN prepared through RN-BSN Programs

  • 70% of RNs are diploma or ADN, only 15% currently will achieve BSN or higher

  • RNs who felt likely to have success in RN-BSN Programs were more likely to pursue BSN

  • Incentives:

  • Right time in life

  • Options

  • Personal goal achievement

  • Professional identity

  • Peer encouragement

  • User-friendly RN-BSN Program

  • Barriers:

  • Time

  • Fear

  • Lack of recognition for experiential knowledge

  • No differential treatment

  • Negative past school experiences


Imogene king s theory of goal attainment application to the study

Imogene King’s Theory of Goal Attainment: Application to the Study

  • The “action” of nursing students to consider options like RN-BSN Programs

  • Optimum use of resources to reach full potential

  • RN-BSN Programs can influence RNs to optimally use resources and reach their full potential
