Nurses needed to learn rapidly how to care for patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This cross-sectional study identified the educational resources RNs used to learn how to care for these patients, measured the perceived usefulness of the content of these resources, and explored the most relevant educational content sought during the first wave of the pandemic. A total of 799 RNs completed an online survey. Significant differences were found in the educational resources used between RNs who cared for patients with COVID-19 and RNs who did not, as well as for RNs who changed units following the pandemic. The educational resources most often used were also ranked as most useful. The most relevant educational content sought was related to respiratory care techniques and infection containment.

Abstract

Nurses needed to learn rapidly how to care for patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This cross-sectional study identified the educational resources RNs used to learn how to care for these patients, measured the perceived usefulness of the content of these resources, and explored the most relevant educational content sought during the first wave of the pandemic. A total of 799 RNs completed an online survey. Significant differences were found in the educational resources used between RNs who cared for patients with COVID-19 and RNs who did not, as well as for RNs who changed units following the pandemic. The educational resources most often used were also ranked as most useful. The most relevant educational content sought was related to respiratory care techniques and infection containment. These findings provide insight into the educational resources available during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. They could help in developing educational programs relevant to nurses' needs during future pandemics. [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2022;53(2):63-69.].
