Abstract or Introduction
In practice, teaching in the nursing profession forms the foundation of clinical skills. This implies that the impact of teaching and learning is reflected in practice. For instance, effective transformation of the nursing theory into practice accompanied by improved patients’ outcomes demonstrates the success of nursing programs. In this context, practicum experience for nurse educators is built on the teaching project. It is through the teaching project that nurse educators demonstrate their competence for preparing professionally-competent nurses. Foremost, nurse educators gain an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to develop the leadership skills in planning quality education programs. This is accomplished through the use of evidence-based nursing and educational literature, and the implementation of innovative instructional methods that meet the learning needs of learners. Also, it is through the teaching project that nurse educators demonstrate their ability to address educational issues that impacts the teaching environment. Therefore, this teaching project is aimed at analyzing attrition of ESL students in nursing programs. It presents programmatic and teaching strategies that promote the success and prevent attrition of ESL students in nursing programs with an emphasis on the integration of ESL Committee in nursing programs. As such, The PICO question for the project is:
P: English as second language (ESL) students in nursing programs
I: Integrate an ESL Committee to existing nursing programs
C: Nursing program without ESL Committee
O: Prevent culture shock, lower rates of attrition and increase satisfaction among ESL students.
