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...

BACKGROUND: Although current research findings reflect that spiritual care is integral to the discipline of nursing, implementation of spiritual care still remains a neglected area of practice. METHOD: The purpose of this pretest-posttest study was to determine whether a spiritual care educational workshop would increase nurses' knowledge, self-awareness, and abilities regarding spiritual care practices. The Spirituality and Spiritual Care Rating Scale (SSCRS) was used to measure the nurses' knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about spirituality and spiritual care practices...

A higher level of questioning can stimulate creativity and innovation. Stimulating innovation and change in health care is critical to advancing care delivered by nurses and the necessary changes in the systems housing this care. Staff development faculty can teach nurses how to ask these questions. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2017;48(3):102-103.

Prior to evidence-based practice, policies and procedures were reviewed annually or even triennially to ensure that they reflected current practice and demonstrated adherence to regulatory standards. With the publication of the Institute of Medicine report, a shift to operationalization of best evidence practices, formal statements, and frameworks for care has gained increased importance. Processes for policy and protocol development and revision are now based on the inclusion of best evidence, clinician expertise, and patient values or preference...

BACKGROUND: The growth in the number of older adults in the United States requires appropriately prepared health care providers at all levels who will be able to effectively care for this population. First-line caregivers such as certified nursing assistants (CNAs) need education and training in end-of-life care so they can provide high-quality care for residents and families in the long-term-care (LTC) setting. METHOD: CNAs were recruited from an LTC facility in western New York to attend an educational intervention consisting of six 45-minute sessions on various topics selected by the researchers using the curriculum from the Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Nursing Assistant...

As the population ages, preserving the remaining ability of residents is emphasized in nursing homes. Establishing the nursing knowledge of nursing home-specific practice should be included in the continuing education of new nursing home nurses. This study developed a practical guide map for preserving the remaining ability of nursing home residents by analyzing 144 residents' case data pertaining to the nursing care provided by 19 nurses skilled in nursing homes, as well as conducting a literature review. From the collected data, 236 nursing diagnoses were given to the 144 cases...

METHOD: This multisite, cross-sectional, descriptive, correlational study uses the Evidence-Based Practice Knowledge Assessment in Nursing (EKAN) and Evidence-Based Practice Questionnaire (EBPQ). RESULTS: EBPQ subscale scores revealed overall positive self-ratings of EBP knowledge/skills, attitudes, and practice/use...

Big data is a big topic in all leadership circles. Leaders in professional development must develop an understanding of what data are available across the organization that can inform effective planning for forecasting. Collaborating with others to integrate data sets can increase the power of prediction. Big data alone is insufficient to make big decisions. Leaders must find ways to access small data and triangulate multiple types of data to ensure the best decision making. J Contin Educ Nurs. 2017;48(2):60-61...

BACKGROUND: Dedicated education units (DEUs) have been well established throughout the country as a means of developing clinical skills in nursing students. In a DEU, maintaining an adequate number of well-prepared clinical nurse preceptors is essential for unit sustainability and effective student perception. METHOD: This study was a quasi-experimental design using self-reported survey data. A comparison analysis was conducted using the initial results of the Revised Professional Practice Environment (RPPE) survey (i...
