Nurse educators have identified lack of end-of-life content as a serious deficit in undergraduate nursing education. TNEEL, a new software program with tools for teaching end-of-life topics, was created to help educators overcome this problem. The authors implemented an experiential workshop to help educators learn how to useTNEEL's wide variety of educational tools. Trainers provided information about TNEEL and coached participants (N = 94) as they practiced using laptop computers to increase their familiarity and comfort in using the toolkit. Workshop participants completed pre- and posttest evaluations addressing their opinions and beliefs about using this computer tool. Findings support the workshop as an effective way to facilitate adoption of this innovative educational resource and support the development of a nationwide training plan for TNEEL with experiential workshops.
