    The authors discuss a descriptive educational needs assessment survey based on Benner's Skill Acquisition Model to determine staff nurses' perception of quantity and relevance of educational programs offered to nurses. The evaluations of the feedback received, such as lack of knowledge of available educational offerings and the need to expand the current curriculum, are presented. The main assumption that course offerings have changed or validated practice was supported. Changes based on the information obtained by the survey participants involve expansion of the curriculum using a case study approach.
