Having recently completed her master’s degree in nursing, Sharon has accepted a new role as clinical nurse educator for three adult medicine units in the medical center where she has been employed as a staff nurse for the past six years. Eager to put her education to practice in a manner that would benefit both patients and staff, Sharon meets with the nurse managers of the three units to learn what they view as priority issues on which she should focus. All three managers agree that their primary concern is teaching their staff how to better prepare patients with type 2 diabetes to care for themselves after they are discharged home. One of the managers comments, “Half of my nurses are new graduates. I’m not even certain that they know much about type 2 diabetes—how on earth can they teach the patients?” The other two managers nod, agreeing with the first, and chime in: “The patients aren’t being taught what they need to know, they don’t believe what they’re hearing, or they don’t understand what they’re hearing. As a result, I’m being told by ambulatory service nurses that our discharged patients aren’t taking their medications, aren’t making any changes in diet or life style, and seem unconcerned about their hyperglycemia.”
