BACKGROUND: Delirium is an acute brain dysfunction associated with poor outcomes in intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Critical care nurses play an important role in the prevention, detection, and management of delirium, but they must be able to accurately assess for it. The Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU) instrument is a reliable and valid method to assess for delirium, but research reveals most nurses need practice to use it proficiently. METHOD: A pretest-posttest design was used to evaluate the success of a multimodal educational strategy (i...

Tracking the effectiveness of CE over time beyond simply confirming its efficacy in continuing education (CE) in nursing is crucial. However, research evidence on the analysis of change of the effectiveness of CE over time is limited, particularly in the context of case management. This methodological study aimed to introduce both a growth curve modeling and an intra-individual variability index and demonstrate step-by-step procedures and interpretations of those analyses to assess case manager competency over time, using secondary data analysis...

BACKGROUND: Studies reveal that most nurse preceptor preparation programs do not meet nurse preceptors' training needs. This study thus developed a nurse preceptor-centered training program (NPCTP) in Taiwan. METHOD: The ADDIE model was used for the instructional design. On the basis of the nurse preceptors' training needs assessment, the research team developed the NPCTP. Content was adopted from the authentic experiences of preceptors and new graduate nurses (NGNs) using interview data to make 81 videos with computer avatars and 10 live actor films...

BACKGROUND: It is unknown if completing educational modules on understanding, reviewing, and synthesizing research literature is associated with higher value of, attitudes toward, and implementation of evidence-based practices. METHOD: Nurses completed valid, reliable questionnaires on the value of, attitudes toward, and implementation of evidence-based practice 6 months after four educational modules were introduced. Multivariable modeling was used to learn associations of education modules and evidence-based practice themes...

Nursing is a practice profession, and nurse educators have the responsibility to ensure learner attainment of competency at all levels of nursing education. This two-part article provides basic information about designing structured-option test questions to assess and evaluate competency attainment. Part one discusses the uses, advantages, and limits of using structured-option test questions and explains how to develop a structured-option test question. Part two provides information about developing a test blueprint, administering the test, interpreting test results, and revising the test questions...

Leaders are defined by traits, behaviors, roles, and functions, yet little is described about their responsibilities linked to standards and policy development. Presented in this article is a four-point organizational framework (primary, procedural, population-specific, and public) that is useful for establishing patient, institutional, and public policies central to leadership. Leader responsibility for communicating minimum standards is contrasted with setting optimal practice expectations. J Contin Educ Nurs...

BACKGROUND: Postgraduate clinical training programs improve the core competence of nurses. How postgraduate-year (PGY) nurses perceive their clinical competence and their preceptors' perceptions may affect program effectiveness. This study compared the perspectives of clinical competencies of PGY nurses engaged in a residency program in Taiwan with their preceptors' perspectives. METHOD: A cross-sectional study was conducted at a medical center in Taiwan. The Nursing Competence Questionnaire was used to obtain data from 99 pairs of PGY nurses and preceptors...

Evidence from a system-wide research study highlighted strengths and weaknesses in evidence-based practice (EBP) implementation, beliefs, and organizational readiness. To address this evidence, a curriculum was developed within the context of the shared governance and EBP models for nursing practice. The curriculum, Evidence-Based Practice: Clinical Applications in Professional Nursing Practice, consists of five modules that provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities relative to each step of EBP. The learning approach incorporates classroom- and unit-based education, facilitated by EBP curriculum mentors...

BACKGROUND: Although behavioral health and substance use disorder patients visit hospitals in significant numbers, nurses are often ill-prepared to care for them. METHOD: The purpose of this quasi-experimental preclass-postclass design was to determine the effects of an educational intervention on the perceived competency of 57 nurses who care for patients with behavioral and substance abuse disorders. The nurses who chose to participate were asked to respond to a demographic questionnaire and a survey designed to measure perceived competency...

BACKGROUND: Despite the adjunct instructor's central role in the clinical training of nursing students, little research exists on the perspective of the clinical experts assuming this role. This qualitative study aimed to better understand how novice clinical adjunct faculty described their lived experiences in their significant role transition. METHOD: The sample consisted of nine novice adjunct clinical nursing faculty who provided direct clinical supervision of prelicensure students in the United States (i...

BACKGROUND: Continuing nursing education (CNE) activities are increasingly becoming a requirement for RNs to maintain licensure or certification and to remain competent in practice in the fast-changing health care environment. Regardless of the health care profession, continuing education should be a quality educational experience to positively influence practice and patient outcomes. METHOD: A 15-item matrix based on the 2013 American Nurses Credentialing Center Primary Accreditation criteria was used to evaluate CNE activities...

Cooperative learning is an effective teaching strategy that promotes active participation in learning and can be used in academic, clinical practice, and professional development settings. This article describes that strategy and provides an example of its use in a lesson about ethics. J Contin Nurs Educ. 2017;48(4):154-156.

Concepts of competence and competency management continue to challenge and stress nursing professional development practitioners. A shift from focusing on individual competence to building the competence of a team is one strategy to meet the increasing needs of the current health care environment.

International migration has doubled worldwide since 1970, and nurses are increasingly becoming a part of this trend. In 2008, approximately 5.6% of RN positions were filled by nurses educated in other countries. One of the critical issues is the transition of these immigrated nurses to the U.S. health care system and acculturation in a new society. Continuing education is necessary to promote adjustment and provide for a successful transition while ensuring quality patient care. The life patterns model provides a framework to describe the challenges and potential mediators in the transition process...

The aim of this article is to identify the factors that predict self-perceived nursing competency among new nurses in Taiwan. This quantitative cross-sectional survey was performed with a convenience sample of 105 new nurses. Data were collected with questionnaires. Multiple linear regression showed perceived benefit of preceptor policies to nursing capacity and age accounted for 21.1% of the variance in dependent variables for self-perceived nursing competency importance. Satisfaction with current preceptor, satisfaction with current nursing job, and participation in interprofessional education conferences accounted for 22% of the variance in dependent variables for self-perceived nursing competency adequacy...

BACKGROUND: Numerous evaluation tools are used to verify nursing competencies, job satisfaction, and leadership qualities separately. One comprehensive tool, the Progressive Orientation Level Evaluation (POLE) tool, measures the increasing complexity of competencies from novice through competent levels. The tool also measures employee satisfaction and engagement to identify potential challenges, stressors, or barriers to transition prior to completion of the post-hiring orientation (on-boarding) process...
