Identifying the Gaps: the Status of Data Management Education in Doctoral Nursing Programs

Class Details

The last decade has seen data management (DM) knowledge and expertise become a foundational expectation not only for research but also for nursing informatics, data science, and data-intensive nursing practice. A concurrent dramatic increase in Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs has resulted in many new students and faculty who need DM education, resources, and support. However, little was known about DM within doctoral nursing programs. Our research investigated the status of DM education as described by DNP and PhD program directors and examined nursing student handbooks, identifying the knowledge and resource gaps which are critical to fill in order for students to succeed. This presentation will summarize our research to date and review opportunities for health science librarians to translate our findings into practical collaborations at their institutions.
