Hidden treasures Anecdotal reports, qualitative data (Gerigk & Hirst, 2017)

The student’s experience The dually enrolled student: “It is easier to do ATB because you are getting it out of the way and you don’t have to worry about procrastinating and not going back to school.” “I think what makes the ATB option successful is that it allows students the option to work towards their BSN at the same time while enrolled for their ADN. I also think what makes this program appealing and successful is that I will be fully prepared to enter the workforce.” “I like the way the curriculum is panned out allowing for some deviation if necessary, but also keeping you in school year round. It helps to not lose the momentum from semester to semester.” Takeaways from professional development activities: “Nursing isn’t about just going in to work and coming home. Continuing your education is also very important and bettering yourself to better our care for patients.” -114th MNA Convention “It’s up to new nurses to help with attitude, communication, and behavioral modifications to improve culture.” –Professional Development Workshop
