Eileen Catherine Galvin, Teresa Wills, Alice Coffey
AIM: To report on an analysis on the concept of 'readiness for hospital discharge'. BACKGROUND: No uniform operational definition of 'readiness for hospital discharge' exists in the literature, therefore a concept analysis is required to clarify the concept and identify an up to date understanding of readiness for hospital discharge. Clarity of the concept will identify all uses of the concept; provide conceptual clarity, an operational definition and direction for further research...

EDITORIAL
Melanie Birks, Roger Watson
Doctoral snobbery exists. It's a thing (Parnell, 2016). It's an extension of 'academic snobbery' (Martin & Sorensen, 2014) more generally, and probably originates from 'title snobbery' (Valverde, Mueller, Paciotti, & Conway, 2016). Successfully completing a doctoral qualification is no small achievement and so some degree of elitism is probably reasonable. But is it reasonable for there to be an elitist division between the traditional PhD and the relative newcomer, the professional doctorate? And what about the doctorate in nursing practice (DNP) now apparently overtaking the PhD in the USA? Our recent participation in a round table on doctoral education in Hong Kong prompted us to explore the issue further and, by implication, to invite further comment...

EDITORIAL
Claire Su-Yeon Park
Much evidence supports that having more nurses leads to better patient outcomes. However, why is nurse staffing still lacking in practice? Previous studies on the nursing workforce have, so far, focused on determining 'more nurses and better patient outcomes.' However, a controversial debate on the cost-effectiveness of hiring more nurses still continues (Aiken et al. 2011). When it comes to nursing workforce policy-materializing in practice, the inconclusiveness of nursing efficiency is considered to be one of the critical reasons for the failure to narrow the gap between the ideal and the real...
