Abstract/Description: Problem Statement: Sepsis continues to be a major problem in many hospitals and healthcare settings throughout the United States. The effectiveness of early recognition accompanied by evidence-based treatment can make the difference between life and death. Nursing students must possess the knowledge and needed training to recognize early onset of sepsis in order to implement protocols for earlier resuscitation. Purpose: Apply educational interventions coupled with prep-test and post-test questions to evaluate nursing students’ requisite knowledge to identify and address early signs of sepsis. Methods: Employed a pre and post-test comparative design to measure the effectiveness of an educational session given to two groups of senior nursing students on the topic of early recognition and treatment of sepsis. Participation: ASN students (N=19 pre/post test) from a rural public state college in southeastern United States and BSN students (N= 72 pre-test) (N=73 post-test) from a large public state university in the southeastern United States. Results: N= 91 ASN and BSN students completed the pre-test and N = 92 ASN and BSN students completed the post-test. Majority of students were female 87.4%. The average age of participants largely fell within the age group of 18-25. ASN pre-test proportion of 0.36 pre-test, BSN proportion of correct answers on pre-test was 0.38 pre-test. ASN proportion of correct answers on post-test was 0.93 post-test and BSN proportion of correct answers on post-test was 0.90. Confidence interval of p < .001. Conclusions: There was a positive correlation between the sepsis educational session and post- test results in both the ASN and BSN cohorts.
