Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Understanding the nurse-client relationship: Program guidelines versus nurse autonomy
by Gilmore, Angela L., M.S.N., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 92; 1527938
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to corroborate existing gaps identified in the current literature on nurses' decision-making abilities that may create barriers in the existing Nurse Family Partnership program. A participatory evaluation design was utilized with an expert panel of nurse home visitors. A literature-based Executive Summary and Gaps in Current Literature Report with iterative feedback from panel members for each concept identified were used as data for this project in order to synthesize a report. Content analysis was used to describe and analyze the written responses and feedback to confirm or refute the identified gaps in knowledge.
