Since 2001, over 2 million military service members have been deployed for or assigned to support military operations. Many service members develop a mental health concern during or after a deployment. Although researchers have assessed perceptions of stigma associated with accessing MHS, defining stigma is difficult, and conceptual clarity regarding stigma is lagging behind studies focused on its effects...

BACKGROUND: Meeting the demands for career advancement in the faculty tenure track of a university becomes a challenge for new researchers when active nursing research is limited or nonexistent. Nurse faculty transitioning from clinical practice settings may face greater difficulty climbing the ladder of promotion because of the limited opportunity for nursing research. A way to create a research thread that will allow an opportunity to ease into the new role and build an effective research team is to participate in an interdisciplinary research (IDR) team...

This article presents six categories of considerations for nurses caring for patients of the Millennial Generation based on the characteristics, attitudes, and values that have influenced them as well as the healthcare issues confronting this group of young adults...

BACKGROUND: Team-based care has garnered attention as a way to enhance healthcare delivery and patient care related to quality and safety. However, there is no consensus on the concept of team-based care; as a result, the lack of common definition impedes further studies on team-based care. METHODS: This analysis was conducted using Walker and Avant's strategy...

When novice nurse educators cross over into the academic threshold, they enter into a state of culture shock. The tenets of teaching, research, and service combined with the expectations of mastering clinical and academic competencies can overwhelm new nurse educators. A successful synergistic mentor-mentee relationship is essential for a positive transition to the educator role. This lighthearted adventure of Alice entering Wonderland University is intended to provide a humorous simile for both new nurse educators and tenured faculty...
