Journal Article (Journal Article)

Background

The rapid acceleration of virtual health care delivery, telehealth, has underlined the pressing need for graduate nursing students to gain skills and competencies that will ensure effective and efficient delivery of telehealth care in future generations.

Problem

There is a need for graduate nursing students to be prepared to use telehealth, but few nursing programs offer this training. Barriers to this implementation may be due to lack of faculty knowledge, telehealth resources, or telehealth opportunities.

Solution

Graduate nursing faculty should use resources and the wisdom of early adopters of telehealth to ensure adequate telehealth preparation is integrated into all graduate nursing programs.

Conclusion

This article describes emerging core competencies for telehealth education and offers guidance, resources, and activities for nurse educators who seek to prepare emerging advanced practice RNs to plan, deliver, and implement effective telehealth practices.
