Summary of "Evaluating the Effectiveness of ATI Nurse's Touch™ on BSN Student Soft Skills: A Descriptive Study."

Students in health care today are very different than those of past generations. Health care education requires both innovation and creativity to meet the changing needs of students. Soft skills such as leadership, communication, nursing informatics, technology, and professionalism can sometimes be lost in pursuit of scientific knowledge. The purpose of this descriptive pilot study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a product designed to assist in the development of soft skills in a bachelor of science in nursing curriculum. This research did not support the additive value of this particular product but recommended further research at other curricular levels.
