Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An educational curriculum for nurses to educate patients with gestational diabetes
by Velasco, Fatima Maclang, M.S.N., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 84; 1486715
Abstract (Summary)

Gestational diabetes is know to be one of the major complications of pregnancy. Mother and child are at risk for complications both in the acute setting and in the long term. At the same time, there has been no known educational curriculum to teach nurses regarding gestational diabetes with a focus on acute and long-term complications.

The purpose of this project was to provide an educational curriculum for newly graduated nurses by preparing them to become proficient in educating their gestational diabetic clients. The pretest-versus-posttest result was significant because everyone's score changed with a significance of .373, although the interaction was not significant with a score of .650. While the pretest and posttest effect was significant, the associate degree and bachelor's degree effect was not significant, nor was the interaction. A larger sample size may show a greater degree of significance between the associate degree and bachelor's degree learner.
