Abstract:Nurses are expected to be self-regulated in learning (SRL) to remain competent as a professional. However, learning at the workplace is quite a challenge due to multiple and conflicting commitments of nurses, patient census and time-sensitivity, often resulting in a low extent of SRL-behaviour. Therefore, knowledge about how to support SRL-behaviour in the healthcare context is scarce but is necessary. Recent research in the clinical context revealed a new SRL model, with ‘regulatory readiness’ (RR) as a conditional component, to start the SRL process. This study investigates to what extent micro-interventions can support nurses’ RR and their SRL-behaviour. Micro-interventions are small messages, provided via an application on their mobile device. To maximize the effect of the micro-interventions, four empirically derived accepted change aspects from psychotherapy process-effect have been applied, combined with competences described in the Dutch professional nursing code. An experience sample of 9 nurses were studied to capture the effect of micro-interventions. A self-report questionnaire and repeated self-registered measurements via a daily diary were performed. Results indicate a middle size effect on nurses’ RR and their SRL-behaviour, but cannot be stated as significant. However, current results contribute to the scarce knowledge of nurses’ RR and their SRL.
