Abstract
completion, the entire course will provide a professional certificate with continuing nursing education contact hours or can be transferred as academic credit in an undergraduate-nursing program. The model for the OCPP to be developed in this project has three components: didactic core content, clinical practicum, and a Virtual Center of Best Practices. The core content will include principles, nursing care management, and critical thinking skills. The clinical practicum component of the course involves the use of preceptors to facilitate learning, skills demonstration and validation, and evaluation of learning in the clinical setting. The centerpiece of the project, The Virtual Center of Best Practices, will offer state-of-the-art online skills demonstration, clinical databases, nursing practice protocols, access to learning resources, and dialogue with expert clinicians and researchers in critical care nursing. Test of feasibility for the one module includes comparing learning outcomes with traditional learning methods and assessing the impact of using technology and educational practices on the outcomes of the course.
