Session presented on Monday, November 9, 2015 and Tuesday, November 10, 2015:
Objective: To explore the difference in educational needs and learning needs according to the years of home-visit nursing care experience.
Methods: Participants completed the Educational Needs Assessment Tool for Visiting Nurses (ENAT-VN) , the Learning Needs Assessment Tool for Visiting Nurses (LNAT-VN) and the Visiting Nurses' Attributes Questionnaire. The ENAT-VN was used to measure the educational needs of visiting nurses identified through a qualitative study (Yokoyama & Funashima, 2010). It has 36 items on a 4 point Likert-type scale, and has satisfactory reliability and validity (Suzuki & Funashima, 2014). The LNAT-VN was used to measure the learning needs of visiting nurses identified through a qualitative study (Miura & Funashima, 2005). It has 25 items on a 6-point Likert-type scale, and has satisfactory reliability and validity (Suzuki & Funashima, 2012). Questionnaires were distributed to 906 randomly sampled visiting nurses working at Home Visit Nursing Care Stations in Japan. The answers were returned by mail and were analyzed statistically.
Results: Of 559--61.5% responses, 463 were valid and the data were analyzed. The mean total score of the ENAT-VN is as follows; visiting nurses with less than 1 year of home-visit nursing care experience (n=38) were 74.6 (SD=20.1), visiting nurses with over 1 year and within 4 years (n=122) were 73.0 (SD=18.3), visiting nurses with over 4 years and within 6 years (n=60) were 70.5 (SD=20.4), visiting nurses with over 6 years and within 10 years (n=109) were 69.6 (SD=18.3), visiting nurses with over 10 years (n=134) were 66.4 (SD=16.6). The mean total score of the LNAT-VN is as follows; visiting nurses with less than 1 year of home-visit nursing care experience (n=38) were 132.8 (SD=12.1), visiting nurses with over 1 year and within 4 years (n=122) were 130.5 (SD=13.3), visiting nurses with over 4 years and within 6 years (n=60) were 131.8 (SD=11.8), visiting nurses with over 6 years and within 10 years (n=109) were 129.6 (SD=13.4), visiting nurses with over 10 years (n=134) were 131.6 (SD=10.6). There was a significant difference between visiting nurses with less than 1 year of home-visit nursing care experience and visiting nurses with over 10 years on the mean total score of the ENAT-VN (p<.05). Among five groups, thirteen items had a significant difference on the mean item score of the ENAT-VN (p<.05). And it was one item that there was a significant difference on the mean item score of the LNAT-VN (p<.05).
Implications: The results suggested that there were some significant difference on the mean item score of the ENAT-VN and the LNAT-VN. Developing effective continuing education programs for visiting nurses based on the findings of this study will help to promote quality of home-visit nursing care.
