METHOD: Hospital-employed nurses (N = 2,826) from 23 secondary and tertiary general hospitals in Beijing were surveyed using a self-administered questionnaire. RESULTS: A total of 72% to 88% of nurses recognized the practicality, helpfulness, importance, and support provided by the current CNE program in Beijing...

This study investigated whether the size of needles used to administer intramuscular injections is appropriate for patients on the basis of their weight or body mass index. METHOD: This retrospective review examined 100 instances of intramuscular injection on a 50-bed ward. RESULTS: In most instances, intramuscular medication was inappropriately administered...

Preceptor role development, support, and recognition are critical elements of a successful preceptor program. The Married State Preceptorship Model was developed to enhance the transition experience for both preceptor and preceptee. This article provides an overview of the married state approach in precepting to increase participant engagement, thus supporting the RN's transition experience.

The purpose of this methodological study was to develop a measure to be used for the evaluation of health professionals' knowledge and attitudes about catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) control precautions. Results indicated the total score of the scale, and correlation values ranged between 0.479 and 0.748. Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin value was found to be .886, which indicates the adequacy of the sample, and Barlett's test results indicated correlation between the items (p < .01). Cronbach's alpha value of the scale was found to be ...

Interprofessional teams are a relatively new organizational structure for the delivery of health care. Appointing people as members of a team does not prepare them for working together efficiently. The building of trust and the development of specific skills are required for teams to reach their full potential in the delivery of quality care. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2018;49(11):498-499.

Continued focus on population health management requires new skills and perspectives by nurse leaders and professional development educators to play a central role in establishing focus and meaning behind this movement. This article addresses operational definitions and recommends training guidelines for leadership development. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2018;49(11):496-497.

BACKGROUND: Newly licensed RNs (NLRNs) are at risk for leaving employment in the first year. Nurse residency programs have demonstrated success for NLRN retention, yet other variables remain to be explored. METHOD: A retrospective correlational approach was used to determine the effect of autonomy, competence, group cohesion, structural empowerment, and job satisfaction on organizational commitment, turnover intent, and actual job turnover using secondary data of 1,498 nurse residents...

Alcohol is the third leading cause of death and a preventable risk factor contributing to more than 200 diseases and conditions. Unquestionably, health care practitioners should routinely screen and give patients brief feedback on alcohol consumption related to health outcomes; however, they rarely ask patients about alcohol use. Alcohol screening and brief intervention (SBI), a public health model of prevention and identification of at-risk alcohol use, has not been widely disseminated. The nursing profession, the largest and most trusted sector of the health care workforce, is perfectly poised to close this gap...

The aim was to examine the effects of an educational learning activity on bedside handoff reporting related to accountability and work effectiveness. The communication was used at change of shift between frontline nurses, with future interprofessional implementation.

BACKGROUND: Providing effective management of chronic wounds can be a major challenge for nurses practicing in health care systems. As the older adult population continues to increase, the prevalence of chronic health-related diseases that can lead to chronic wounds has also increased. Nurses have reported a lack of preparation in the management of chronic wounds. METHOD: The purpose of this pretest-posttest research designed study was to determine whether nurses' knowledge regarding current chronic wound care management would differ after attending an educational workshop that emphasized evidence-based clinical practices in chronic wound management...

George Bernard Shaw once said, "The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion it has taken place." Health care continues to move toward a stronger team-based culture, but in many instances, team members lack basic communication skills needed to build organized, agile, and empowered teams. When teams lack reciprocal trust, a sense of safety, and collaboration skills, communication becomes limited. Limited communication leads to poor patient outcomes. This is the fourth article in this series, which focuses on interprofessional teams, and will address one of the single, simplest tools for team communication designed to improve both patient outcomes and employee satisfaction-the huddle...

In a highly transformative environment like health care, continued professional development and learning is essential. For individuals without degrees, stackable credentials offer another pathway to a degree, and for those with multiple and/or advanced degrees, microcredentials hold promise for retooling and updating knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Nursing professional development practitioners are frequently asked about program return on investment. A pre-postprogram self-assessment was developed for a Nurse Manager Certificate Program using the American Nurses Credentialing Center Nurse Executive Certification blueprint. The results identified knowledge and skill gaps, defined program outcomes, and helped determine return on investment. The results revealed improvement of knowledge, skill, and evidence for return on investment. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2018;49(10):446-448...
