Abstract/Description

The traditional clinical model brings the challenges of nurse faculty shortage, lack of available clinical sites, and quality of student experiences given faculty-student ratios (Smyer, Gatlin, Tan, Tejada &Du, 2015). According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), changing exemplars of patient care require new models of clinical education to encourage independent clinical thinking and judgment (IHI, n.d). The Dedicated Education Unit (DEU) is gaining popularity in the United States and has demonstrated positive outcomes for students, nurses, and patients.
