Jane Campbell (Nursing) received a $2,200 grant from the College of Professional Studies for a study titled "Incorporating PDAs into a Newly Revised BSN Curriculum." PDAs are used in many health care settings, but before becoming a prerequisite of a newly revised undergraduate curriculum, a baseline of usefulness and perceived ease of use should be established. The purpose of this study is to explore students' perceptions of PDA use within the first two years of their academic preparation in a newly revised curriculum. The results may be used to determine if it would be beneficial to require future nursing students in the program to purchase PDAs as a required educational tool.
