Abstract

Background

Telehealth has emerged as an important tool for healthcare providers. Telehealth concepts are not currently taught in many nursing courses.

Purpose

Introduce telehealth concepts to pre-licensure nursing students via a learning module and to test its effectiveness using pre and post-tests.

Method

A two-tailed t test used to analyze the difference between the pre and post-test scores supported the research question: “Is the use of a new telehealth learning module effective in teaching pre-licensure nursing students about telehealth?”

Multiple regression analysis demonstrated that demographic variables had no influence on the outcome of either test.

Discussion

The results of the statistical analysis suggest the module is an effective learning tool.

Conclusion

Telehealth is becoming a useful tool in caring for patients, especially those with chronic illnesses. Introducing the concepts of telehealth in a nursing curriculum will increase students’ awareness of its use in the nursing field.
