  • Transcript

    • 1. The Student Enrichment Programme An Inter-professional Collaboration.
      Helen Thomas
      Subject Librarian- University of Chester
    • 2. 2 key aims driven from Faculty:
      to build commitment during the 3 year undergraduate nursing programme in addressing the issue of student retention.
      to offer structured learning support in response to academic student progression
      Planning, preparation and delivery was collaboratively undertaken by the university student support departments of the Learning Support Unit, Learning Information Services, Careers and Employability and pre-registration nursing staff.
      Aims & Planning of the Programme
    • 3. Year 1
      Refresh searching library catalogue and electronic resources pages, ebooks/ejournals
      Refresh and search using subject specific database CINAHL
      Create APA references for articles found
      Aims of the LIS session
    • 4. Resources – students & staff
      Script for staff
      Worksheet and presentation for students
    • 5. From initial evaluation of pilot study 2 key themes emerged:
      The students evaluated the experience as very positive and would recommend this to fellow students. Students liked the “hands on” element of the LIS session
      Initial attendance however, was poor and key in the students’ evaluation was that sessions were too dispersed.
      Emerging Themes
    • 6. Attendance is now mandatory and sessions are conducted over 1 day, across all sites.
      Student enrichment links strongly to the new Nursing and Midwifery Council standards for pre-registration nursing education and for LIS to the RCN and SCONUL information literacy skills.
      Student enrichment has been highlighted as strength in a recent Faculty of Health and Social care internal review and is now being rolled out for 2nd and 3rd year student nurses as dedicated time within the curriculum.
      Current and Future Developments
