• Patients and families demand effective and safe healthcare instructions. • Health care providers have a duty to provide evidence-based advice and care. • The use of telehealth (electronic information and telecommunications technology to support long-distance clinical care) is an expanding healthcare strategy. • Ineffective telehealth direction results in poor patient satisfaction and outcomes, as well as elevated healthcare costs. • The project focus was educating telehealth nurses based on the evidence. • Evidence-based education increased nurse satisfaction and self-efficacy. • Project structure entailed pre-assessment, education, post-assessment. • Patricia Benner’s Novice to Expert model provided underpinnings for project structure and design model. • Nursing self-efficacy levels impacted delivery of care. • In telehealth, nursing self-efficacy was critical to promote skill performance. • Defense Health System’s (DHS) historic transformation process necessitated support of the military mission and sustainment of patient-centered care. • The Military Health System (MHS) transformation required evidence-based policies and practices that are standardized throughout the services. • Schmidt-Thompson protocols were significant to this DNP project with application of evidence in practice. • Centered on the goal of assuring the appropriate level of care is given to telephone triaged patients. • Patients enrolled at two different Air Force clinics experienced a decrease in the use of emergency room and urgent care when triaged by nurses who received telehealth standardized training. • The use of telehealth supported protocols and training is postulated to improve nurse self-efficacy. • Empowered nurses in the triage role effectively instructed patients to seek the right level of care. • Implementation of innovative training techniques improved nursing self-efficacy.
