Abstract

Lack of clinical sites and disparate experiences contribute to the challenge for RN-to-BS nursing programs to provide sufficient leadership and quality improvement opportunities. A virtual clinical learning experience using WordPress was developed as a faculty-graduate student think tank project and implemented in an RN-BS hybrid nursing leadership course. The unfolding case study created an interactive experience to portray use of systems thinking and transformational leadership. Mann-Whitney U analysis identified no significant difference in learning outcomes. The low-cost, easy-to-develop technology counteracted limited clinical sites, allowing for learning on the go with equivalent learning outcomes.
