Research ApproachQuantitative Research
The study was an educational intervention with master’s nursing students to teach health literacy strategies focused on the individual receiving care and the organization in which care was provided. An online module was created; student participants used the teach back strategy, assessed participant self-efficacy relevant to health literacy efforts, implemented creation or revision of a teaching tool, assessed organizational attributes that support health literacy, and completed a self-evaluation of achievement of health literacy competencies. Eighteen master’s nursing students participated; the module was evaluated positively and participants demonstrated improvements in competency achievement, use of active learning strategies, enhanced self-efficacy, and increased awareness of and use of health literacy strategies over the course of one semester.
