With our research we are currently in the stage of conducting research. We were approved through IRB and have begun the process of creating our study. We created flyers to recruit individuals to participate in our focus groups. We have scheduled the focus groups, to be facilitated by myself, at the beginning of the Spring 2018 semester and the middle of semester. For these focus groups, we have created a series of questions to help facilitate and guide the conversation. We hope to get a variety of students that vary in: grade, age, gender, ethnicity, family life, location of residence, etc. Our literary review is also close to completion after another round of editing.
We recently applied for and submitted an abstract of our project to the 30th Annual Eastern Nursing Research Society (ENRS) Scientific Sessions. We applied along with other nursing majors and faculty partners who are conducting research. We were accepted to attend this in April 2018 under the title “Examining an Intervention for Stress and Burnout to Increase Student Success in Undergraduate Nursing Education”. For this, our research will be reflected of a visual, professional, poster and will be presented by myself. We are where we thought we would be in the process, and we will hit the ground running even fast during the spring semester.
