Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Continuous education is required for nursing staff, but continuous education can be complicated for nurses working shifts, such as those in the emergency department (ED).

INTRODUCTION:

To explore the effectiveness of the ED Training Platform of Tongji Hospital for conventional continuing education of emergency nurses. The training completion rate and training outcomes were validated.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

This was a retrospective study of all in-service emergency nurses working at the Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology between August 2016 and August 2017. The training results of the previous year of the same group were used as controls. The platform used was an online system called JikeXuetang ( www.jkxuetang.com/ ), using the WeChat application as a carrier. The training completion rate and pass rate were compared with the control data.

RESULT:

Among 124 nurses, the training completion rate increased from <60% to 100%, and the passing rate was 100%. Among 121 nurses, 92.5% considered that the mobile phone platform was more convenient than conventional training course; 89.7% believed it as an effective tool of learning, and intended to join public courses after completion; and 63.4% nurses expressed the wish to receive push services once or twice weekly for training course.

CONCLUSION:

The outcome of emergency nurse training was improved using the mobile training platform. This approach was more feasible and easier for training.
