Preparation for principalship : the perception of principals on their own preparation for the position by Richard Culross( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Kentucky, over 100 school principals are replaced yearly. In many cases assistant principals will be the replacement principals, but they must have the leadership experience and skills necessary to prepare them for the principalship. This descriptive action research gathered principals' recollections about their own preparedness levels in the roles and responsibilities of the principalship. Additionally, the project was designed to gain information about experiences and training practices that helped or hindered transition. Participants were current practicing principals from one cooperative region in Kentucky. All participants completed a survey, and two were chosen for follow-up interviews. Data from the study were compiled and analyzed using open coding and Chi-Square. From this research, recommendations for preparing assistant principals were fashioned, which include training supported by local district personnel and strategies to be implemented by principals around communication, mentoring, and experiences

Exploring second grade student engagement before and after MINDS-In-Motion, MAZE by Dawn T Schnieders-Laber( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study resulted from monitoring and observing the engagement of five second grade students both before and after participating in a sensory integration movement process known as MINDS-In-Motion, MAZE. The purpose of this action research study was to explore student engagement and purposeful movement of students utilizing MINDS-In-Motion, MAZE activities throughout the general education school day. Student engagement was monitored using a Conversation, Help, Activity, Movement, Participation (CHAMPS) protocol, (Garrison, Howard & Sprick, 1988) and checklists through observation and field notes. The overall pre and post discoveries included four of the five students showing improvement in the area of behavioral engagement, and all five students increased in both cognitive and emotional engagement. As a result, the results point to the need for further studies involving the use of sensory integration movement processes with students with academic and behavioral deficiencies who do not receive special education services

Teacher perceptions of parenting at a private pre-K-12 school by Terrence Malone( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated the impact of parenting trends on a private Pre k-12 school from the Midwestern United States. The researcher used focus group interviews with 16 educators to examine the perceived effects of parenting on teachers, students and the institution. Results from a survey, reaching a larger sample of educators from two additional Pre k-12 schools, further investigated the perception of educators on parenting tendencies. This study also challenged the phenomenon titled over-parenting, and the notion that there was a growing trend in schools where parents too quickly and too often intervened on behalf of their children.

Amotivation : factors influencing motivation and persistence of students enrolled in a community college developmental education program by Kerri D Mckenna( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this two-part qualitative study was to examine the factors associated with developmental education student persistence at a 2-year college. The population for this study included 63 students that were currently taking at least one developmental education course at a community college in Northern Kentucky. The initial data collection included a thorough document analysis of self-reflective essays that 52 students completed at the end of their developmental writing class. The second data set consisted of an 11 member focus group discussion that further explored the poignant themes that emerged from the document analysis. Based on both data sets, 5 overlapping categories and 18 emergent themes were identified on why some developmental education student can successfully persist to credit bearing classes.

Predicting success in an eastern Kentucky licensed practical nursing program by Chad Rogers( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this correlational retrospective study was to examine the effectiveness of an admission tool in an eastern Kentucky community college at predicting success in a licensed practical nursing program. Bandura's Social Cognitive Theory provided a framework to guide inquiry into the question "Are the criteria being used in this eastern Kentucky community college an effective indicator of student success, as defined by completing the program and meeting the academic criteria to sit for the NCLEX-PN licensing examination?" Student records were examined retrospectively. A multiple regression analysis was performed to determine which portions of the tool showed the strongest relationship to success. A random sample of 60 students was used. This study concluded that the admission tool used in this practical nursing program seemed to be an effective indicator of student success on the NCLEX-PN, but did not select students likely to pass the program effectively enough
Impact of a pain management educational program on pediatric nurses' knowledge and attitudes about pain management by Janella J Dowd( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The knowledge base and attitudes of nurses has been shown to impact the treatment of pain. The theoretical framework was Kolcaba's theory of comfort. A pretest-posttest descriptive study determined the changes in the knowledge base and attitudes of nurses toward pain management after participating in an active learning educational orientation program. Newly hired registered nurses from a large, Midwestern pediatric hospital were tested during their orientation program using Manworren's Pediatric Nurses' Knowledge and Attitudes Survey Regarding Pain. The post test results were compared to scores from a cohort having previously participated in a didactic teaching module. Fifty-three subjects participated in the study. Comparing the active learning pre- and post-test scores, no significant difference was found (p=0.385). Also, no significant difference was found between the didactic post-test scores and the active learning post-test scores (p=0.399)
The benefits of a peer-based mentor/tutor program for undergraduate students in a four-year traditional baccalaureate in nursing program by Kathleen W Ritter( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increased enrollment in nursing programs has resulted in a larger population of at-risk students who are less likely to be successful in the baccalaureate nursing curriculum. A nursing school at a midwestern state-funded university developed a Peer-based Mentor/Tutor Program (MTP) for academically at-risk students. The MTP matched academically at-risk students enrolled in baccalaureate courses with mentor/tutor upperclassmen who were successful in those courses. The at-risk participants had improved grades and attrition decreased. This study, based on Imogene King's Theory of Goal Attainment (1981), examined the additional benefits gained through participation in the MTP. A ten-item researcher-developed Likert scale questionnaire was administered to 48 participants. Descriptive statistics revealed benefits gained through the MTP. Understanding of course materials, friendships and involvement in a learning community were the most frequently cited benefits. These findings emphasize the importance of learning strategies that build relationships and strengthen study skills for increased student success and retention
The role of the liver transplant nurse practitioner by Stephanie Quehl( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the emerging role of the Liver Transplant Nurse Practitioner (LTNP). The framework underpinning this study was The Strong Model of Advanced Practice Nursing. Specific research questions were to understand and describe the job components and duties of the LTNP, to identify how the components of the LTNP role relate to The Strong Model, and to identify personal views, role related strengths and barriers perceived by LTNPs. A purposeful telephone interview was conducted in this qualitative descriptive study to analyze the roles of 3 (n=3) LTNPs. Opportunities for future research include continued exploration of roles, describing time spent in the core areas, identifying barriers limiting participation in core areas, their implications, and how experiences relate to the perception of novice versus expert nurses. This may strengthen the advancement of practice by improving frameworks aimed at improving efficiency and outcomes
