PURPOSE: To describe NLE trends in 2010 to 2016, compare low- and high-performing HEIs, and examine the association of HEIs' characteristics with NLE passing rate. METHODS: NLE and HEI data were collected from two Philippine government agencies. Descriptive statistics were used to present NLE trends, while multiple linear regression was used to determine the association of HEI characteristics with NLE passing rate...

OBJECTIVES: To offer practical guidance to nurse investigators interested in multidisciplinary research that includes assisting in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for "smart" health management and aging-in-place. METHODS: Ten health-assistive Smart Homes were deployed to chronically ill older adults from 2015 to 2018. Data were collected using five sensor types (infrared motion, contact, light, temperature, and humidity). Nurses used telehealth and home visitation to collect health data and provide ground truth annotation for training intelligent algorithms using raw sensor data containing health events...

In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published a technical report on the lifelong effects of early toxic stress on human development, and included a new framework for promoting pediatric health: the Ecobiodevelopmental Framework for Early Childhood Policies and Programs. We believe that hospitalization is a specific form of toxic stress for the neonatal patient, and that toxic stress must be addressed by the nursing profession in order to substantially improve outcomes for the critically ill neonate...

BACKGROUND: Nurse scientists are highly sought after and find satisfaction in serving as members of interdisciplinary research teams. These teams also tend to be highly productive. However, nurse scientists in academia also have to reach certain productivity milestones to be promoted and receive tenure that may be incongruent with team science principles. PURPOSE: This study therefore sought to examine whether APT documents in research intensive nursing schools incorporate team science principles...

BACKGROUND: Building on the efforts of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, we developed a model to infuse data science constructs into doctor of philosophy (PhD) curriculum. Using this model, developing nurse scientists can learn data science and be at the forefront of data driven healthcare. PURPOSE: Here we present the Data Science Curriculum Organizing Model (DSCOM) to guide comprehensive doctoral education about data science. METHODS: Our team transformed the terminology and applicability of multidisciplinary data science models into the DSCOM...

PURPOSE: To evaluate changes in coverage of SGM health in the top-ranked nursing journals since the earlier review using a scoping approach. METHODS: Electronic search of articles published between December 2009 and December 2017 in 20 nursing journals with the highest 5-year impact factors...
