Resumen

Background: Primary palliative care (PPC) education is deficient in nursing curricula. The Endof-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) curricula are frequently utilized PPC educational interventions; however, there is limited evidence exploring the impact of the new undergraduate curriculum on student knowledge. Purpose: The purpose of the study was to determine the impact of ELNEC-Undergraduate curriculum on associate degree nursing students’ knowledge of PPC. Methods: The quasi-experimental study implemented a pretest/posttest design with a single cohort of associate degree nursing students enrolled in their final semester. Knowledge was assessed using the Undergraduate Nursing Palliative Care Knowledge Survey. Paired sample ttests analyzed change in knowledge. Hierarchical linear regressions analyzed the effect of student demographics on knowledge. Results: Knowledge significantly increased after the implementation of the ELNECUndergraduate curriculum. No significant effects of demographic variables were identified. Conclusion: The ELNEC-Undergraduate curriculum is effective in improving associate degree nursing students’ knowledge of PPC.
