#1
Kristine M L'Ecuyer, Matthew J Hyde, Bobbi J Shatto
BACKGROUND: Many variables contribute to the success of nursing students and new nurses in their transition to practice. Clinical orientation and training usually falls to staff nurse preceptors. Inherent in this dynamic is the assumption that staff nurses are prepared and able to assume this responsibility. Ideal characteristics and attributes of preceptor competency have not been conclusively defined. METHOD: This qualitative study explored the defining attributes of preceptor role competency as described by preceptors who attended one of 44 continuing education preceptor academies over 9 years in Missouri...

Philippa Rasmussen, Ann Henderson, Nicky Andrew, Tiffany Conroy
BACKGROUND: This review synthesizes contemporary research investigating the factors influencing RNs' perceptions of their professional identity. METHOD: The method used was an integrative literature review. RESULTS: Factors influencing RNs' perceptions of their professional identity were synthesized into three categories: the self, the role, and the context. The self is the nurse who enacts the role in practice, and the context is the practice setting...

Intensive care unit (ICU) nurses are frequently exposed to emotional and stressful situations in the workplace, which has changed little over the decades. Compassion fatigue is caused by sustained exposure to situations that conflict with one's values and beliefs in the ICU, eroding clinical team relationships and ultimately the quality and safety of patient care. Continuing education in the intensive care setting is a priority, as ICU nurses need to remain abreast of the rapid developments in high-acuity care delivery; however, attention also needs to be directed to nurses' emotional well-being...

BACKGROUND: New graduate RNs (NGRNs) may experience difficulties in their transition to independent practice. The main role of preceptors is to guide, validate, and supervise the care that NGRNs provide. However, preceptors may not receive training to serve in the role. METHOD: A literature review of the past 5 years was conducted, with 10 articles meeting the inclusion criteria to analyze the effects of preceptor training on NGRN outcomes. RESULTS: Ten studies indicated a range of positive effects of preceptor training on NGRN transition experiences and organizational outcomes, including critical thinking and retention...

Nurse educators are faced with the challenge of educating learners about global health for clinical practice, particularly as cultural diversity increases in their own communities. This third article in the four-part Teaching Tips series focuses on active teaching-learning strategies for global health awareness and engagement in clinical practice using interprofessional education global health competencies and evidence-based interactive teaching strategies. Tips and topic ideas are offered for integrating global awareness and engagement in both the academic and practice settings to prepare today's nurses for systems-based culturally competent care in clinical practice...

A leader's toolbox of competencies comprises knowledge, skills, and abilities in clinical care, finance, human resource management, and more. As essential as these are, a strong command of quality and safety competencies is sovereign in leading and managing, ensuring an optimal patient experience. Four core areas of quality and safety competencies are presented: systems science, knowledge workers, implementation science and big data, and quality safety tools and techniques.

Susan Hellier, Lynda Davidson
Team teaching is used to describe a broad array of teaching configurations that offer benefits to students that cannot be duplicated by a single educator. Although articles and books have been written to describe team teaching in other fields, little has been written about team teaching in nursing. In a field with clinical application, team teaching offers more richness in perspective when there are two complimentary educators teaching the content. The opportunity to learn from a colleague, while guiding students, is an added benefit of team teaching...

Nurses lack adequate pain management knowledge, which can result in poorly managed postsurgical pain. This study aimed to develop, implement, and evaluate pain management education and operational guidelines to improve nursing knowledge and pain management. This quality improvement project employed convenience samples of surgical oncology nurses and postoperative patients. The intervention involved an online module, live education, and operational guideline for pain management. Nurses completed pre- and postintervention practice and attitudes surveys...

Predatory publishers solicit manuscripts through e-mail invitations to potential authors, with the goal of enticing authors to submit a manuscript to the journal. This descriptive study examined the characteristics of 206 e-mail invitations from predatory journals and publishers sent to faculty and students in a school of nursing over a 10-week period. Characteristics of these e-mails included use of flattering language, due dates for submissions close to the date of the e-mail sent, requests for general topics, and awkward phrases...

BACKGROUND: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common androgen-excess disorder in reproductive-aged women, is often a missed diagnosis. Rural nurse practitioners (NPs) need to be able to diagnose and provide basic management for PCOS. This study's objective was to determine whether a continuing education program about PCOS would improve NPs' knowledge about PCOS. METHOD: A pretest-posttest design was used. Forty-eight participants attending a regional NP conference completed a pretest before a continuing education presentation about PCOS...

BACKGROUND: Patient safety is a national and global concern. In the United States, medical errors result in more than 50,000 unnecessary patient deaths annually and contribute to billions of dollars in health care costs. The purpose of this project was to evaluate a standardized bedside handoff process and its influence in a medical-surgical unit. METHOD: A quality improvement project was performed in a medical-surgical unit and consisted of development, implementation, and evaluation of a standardized bedside handoff...

The integration of global health into nursing practice within complex systems requires a strategic approach. The System-Level Awareness Model (SAM) can be used to guide the process of enhancing systems thinking for global health. The purpose of this article is to explain the SAM and how to use it for integrating systems thinking into nursing education in academic, professional development, and continuing education settings to promote global health across the nursing continuum. Tips are provided on how to teach systems thinking for global health in nursing education and practice, consistent with continuing education national learning competencies for health care professionals...

In considering the full depth of inclusion in care and work environments (and developing inclusive engagement skills for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning [LGBTQ] patients and their families), professional development leaders must bring these discussions and shared learnings into the open. Understanding the LGBTQ population's unique needs is essential to providing personalized health care, and inclusive work environments help to foster more inclusive care for this population.

Alannah L Cooper, Janie A Brown
It is essential that nurses and midwives can understand and critically evaluate research to ensure the delivery of high-quality evidence-based care. Journal clubs are an educational method that helps to develop research capacity and assist with bridging the gap between research and clinical practice. To maintain competence and remain current with the latest evidence, a commitment to continuing professional education is required. This article describes how a successful journal club led to clinical nurses identifying a gap in their own practice, which resulted in a research project being conducted by the members of the journal club...

Vivian Tong, Beverly J Epeneter
BACKGROUND: Newly licensed nurses are overwhelmed and feel stressed as they transition from student to professional nurse. Health educators are making strides in improving the work environment, yet these nurses continue to feel stressed. Little has been done to track stress-ors to see whether they have changed over time. METHOD: A descriptive qualitative research method was used to identify the stressors of newly licensed nurses. The first focus group interviews were conducted in 2003 with 21 nurses...
