A Program to Enhance Writing Skills for Advanced Practice Nurses.


Journal Article

BACKGROUND:Advanced practice RNs (APRNs) make important contributions to scholarly journals that are derived from scientific evidence and clinical practice. This article presents a writing program designed to enhance the writing skills of APRNs with a series of online modules, a workshop, and a manuscript checklist. METHOD:The writing program was implemented in a Doctor of Nursing Practice program and evaluated with a writing self-efficacy scale and open-ended questions. RESULTS:Findings indicate self-efficacy was high after the writing program, and participants found the checklist to be useful. CONCLUSION:This program has potential as a course in a nursing school's curriculum or as a continuing education class. Participants can use the program's tools to maintain their writing skills and enhance publication success throughout their careers. [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2019;50(3):109-114.].
