For the first time in recent years, the number of nurses and midwives in the UK leaving the Nursing and Midwifery Council register has exceeded those joining. Fort-five per cent more registrants left than joined between 2016 - 2017, the majority of whom were aged under 40 (NMC, 2017). It is not surprising that pay and working conditions topped the reasons for leaving, but while these issues have an important role in addressing retention, they form only part of the picture. The roots of nurse retention lie within the experiences of student nurses, and to address this we must act much sooner...

AIMS: to explore and understand the experiences of terminally-ill patients and their relatives regarding dignity during end-of-life care in the emergency department. BACKGROUND: the respect given to the concept of dignity is significantly modifying the clinical relationship and the care framework involving the end-of-life patient in palliative care units, critical care units, hospices and their own homes. This situation is applicable to in-hospital emergency departments, where there is a lack of research which takes the experiences of end-of-life patients and their relatives into account...

Acid attacks are deliberate acts of violence that are potentially lethal and may result in significant burns to the surface area of the victim's body (Karunadasa et al., 2010). Such attacks were considered common in the USA and UK in the 1800s (Chowdhury, 2007), but from the 1980s, the reporting of acid attacks increased in southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa (Khoshnami, Mohammadi, Rasi, Khankeh, & Arshi, 2017).

Nursing education has undergone dramatic changes in the last 150 years. Rooted in a traditional apprenticeship model that consisted of training in hospital based schools, the vision of Florence Nightingale that came to fruition in 1860, this educational model where trainee nurses were supervised by physicians was adopted in many countries (McDonald 2017). Prior to this nurses were poorly trained in an ad-hoc fashion, often in religious institutions. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved...

As a result, the impact on fathers of the preterm birth can bring negative consequences for the development of father-infant relationship. DESIGN: A multi-method approach was used which included ethnographic observation, semi-structured interviews with fathers, a self-report questionnaire and clinical information between September 2015-March 2017...

AIM: A discussion of how adopting a Realist rather than Pragmatist methodology affects the conduct of mixed methods research. BACKGROUND: Mixed methods approaches are now extensively employed in nursing and other health care research. At the same time, realist methodology is increasingly used as philosophical underpinning of research in these areas. However, the standard philosophical underpinning of mixed methods research is Pragmatism, which is generally considered incompatible or at least at odds with Realism...
