Summary and Conclusion

From the Paper:

"Professional nursing education programs are critically necessary in order to educate the nursing student in the many areas and sectors that must be navigated in order to excel as a professional nurse. Nursing in its truest form is involved deeply in advocacy for the patient through influencing policy by educating policymakers as to the needs of patients to ensure that policy provisions are sufficiently suited to the need that is hand. Additionally as noted in this work education of professional nursing staff and graduate students assist these individuals in their interactions and communications during the course of their career and it has been reported in this study that education has been acknowledge by nursing students to further their "...information-seeking abilities, critical and analytical thinking and professional knowledge and skills..." (Schuldt, Ohlen and Gustvsson, 2008) and that this serves to diminish the severity of the nursing professionals experiences with "...role conflict and stress as they begin practice in work environments of high complexity, nurse shortages, and expectations to become competent rapidly." (Fink, Krugman, Casey, and Goode, 2008)"
