Dedicated Education Unit Model for a Transition Into Practice Course.
A dedicated education unit (DEU) model involves a collaborative partnership between a clinical agency and a school of nursing. This article describes the development of a DEU for a transition to practice course. No differences were noted in the satisfaction of students, staff nurses, and the clinical agency between the DEU and traditional preceptor models, but the DEU design enabled the school of nursing to place more students in the unit, compared with a preceptorship model.
