Therefore, it is important that critical care nurses have the authority to make decisions about their patient care. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to explore perceived barriers to the practice of professional autonomy from the perspectives of ICU nurses in Iran. METHODS: In this qualitative study, 28 critical care nurses were interviewed using a semistructured in-depth interview method...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this article is to summarize the current literature related to FOC retention and promotion. METHODS: We reviewed 25 articles from the nursing literature following PRISMA guidelines, using a critical race theory framework...

BACKGROUND: The use of the term care partner has increased, particularly in the chronic disease literature; however, the concept has not been well defined. PURPOSE: The purpose of this concept analysis was to define and assist nurses to better understand the concept of care partner. METHODS: The method by Walker and Avant was used for this literature-based concept analysis. DISCUSSION: Care partnering includes providing assistance to an individual with a health condition to meet their self-care deficits, the commitment to a care partner relationship, and the recognition that people with self-care deficits are care partners contributing to their own care...
