BACKGROUND: Since the implementation of the DNP degree, there has been controversy, confusion, and inconsistency about the DNP project. To this day, the profession lacks a consensus of what the DNP project should be. PROBLEM: Despite much in the literature regarding these issues, there is no systematic approach to the development of DNP project guidelines. Consequently, there is now an escalating interest in increasing the quality and rigor of DNP projects. APPROACH: Many issues related to the DNP project can be addressed using a logic model approach and incorporating current best practices...

BACKGROUND: Disasters require nurses to make decisions. A tabletop exercise, used in disaster education, is a classroom activity for solving problems. PURPOSE: The study purposes were to (1) describe, as scores, the transfer of learning from basic medical-surgical coursework to student decisions made during a disaster scenario tabletop exercise and (2) identify students' attitudes about their use of their previous learning during this experience. METHOD: Researcher-designed instruments and a tabletop exercise were used to measure prelicensure students' transfer of select basic medical-surgical learning to their decisions during the exercise...

BACKGROUND: Nonreporting of medical errors is an impediment to error prevention and safety in the clinical environment. Many prelicensure nursing education programs do not have policies, procedures, or forms to support student reporting of errors or near misses during their clinical experiences. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences of clinical faculty with prelicensure nursing student errors or near misses in the clinical environment and to use this information to create a reporting form...

BACKGROUND: Nursing students are underprepared for the rigors of graduate writing. The lack of sufficient writing opportunities and skill development in prelicensure nursing education creates barriers that threaten course and program progression. APPROACH: This study used a prospective, repeated-measures design to evaluate 5 years of faculty-implemented writing development strategies in a DNP program. OUTCOMES: Faculty adopted 12 strategies in 10 courses...

BACKGROUND: Traditional advising may not meet the needs of doctor of nursing practice (DNP) students. Founded on the principles of appreciative inquiry, appreciative advising serves as a promising alternative model. PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot study was to determine feasibility of a DNP appreciative advising model to advise students through the rigors of DNP education and improve student and faculty satisfaction. METHODS: Faculty were oriented to the model and provided comprehensive guidebooks...

BACKGROUND: Assessment is a vital role of all nurses, yet cardiac murmur identification remains difficult for students. Cardiac auscultation is a technical, not intellectual, skill, and a psychoacoustic approach to learning is recommended. A psychoacoustic approach involves repetition of cardiac sounds to facilitate auditory perceptual learning. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a psychoacoustic learning modality for identification of cardiac murmurs by nurse practitioner (NP) students...

BACKGROUND: Online student response systems (OSRSs), driven by the Internet and cell phone technology, provide a free, easily accessible method to increase student engagement, facilitate active learning, and provide learners and teachers with instant feedback about learning progress. PURPOSE: This article describes undergraduate nursing students' use of 2 OSRSs and their perceptions of the impact of the tools on class participation and engagement. METHODS: Students used their own mobile phones or computers to access 2 types of OSRSs: a classic and a game-based OSRS...

BACKGROUND: Delivering content in an interactive manner presented a specific challenge in a medical-surgical course. Storytelling, using an SBARR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation, Review) format, emerged as a means to deliver content in an interactive and engaging manner. PURPOSE: The purposes were to provide a framework for effective educator storytelling in the nursing classroom and after implementation of the framework, to gather student perceptions of the effectiveness of the SBARR framework...

BACKGROUND: Despite the continued efforts to diversify the population of nursing students in the United States, marginalization and attrition remain significant issues for nontraditional students. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between marginality and nontraditional student status in nursing students enrolled in a baccalaureate nursing program in Texas. METHOD: A nonexperimental, descriptive, correlational design was used for data collection...

BACKGROUND: Understanding what factors contribute to NCLEX-RN success is critical to nursing programs. Emotional intelligence is one factor that warrants investigation. PURPOSE: The purpose of our study was to examine emotional intelligence, measured via the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test 2.0, to 2 standardized measures of nursing student performance: the Kaplan Nursing Assessment Test (NAT) and NCLEX-RN success. METHODS: A descriptive, cohort design with 2 data collections times points (n = 53) evaluated the contribution of emotional intelligence to NAT and to NCLEX-RN success, while controlling for age...

BACKGROUND: Teamwork is an important factor in the provision of high-quality health care. There is a lack of research on collaboration between nursing students at different program levels. PURPOSE: The purpose of this project was to determine student perceptions about collaborative learning activities between prelicensure BSN and MSN students. METHODS: Community assessments by BSN students identified health needs and issues for 6 underserved populations...

BACKGROUND: By 2030, 1 in 5 persons will be 65 years or older. To address the health care needs of the burgeoning elderly population, nursing faculty need to use curricular models that are poised to deliver age-appropriate nursing care to the specialized needs of the older adult population. PROBLEM: The lack of geriatric clinical experiences and clinical faculty who do not have expertise in geriatric nursing assessment create barriers to guide students in learning about care of older adults...

BACKGROUND: The traditional admission methodology used by many schools of nursing is the second-tier admission based on specified criteria. This method has been associated with a student body that is predominately female, white, and English speaking. PROBLEM: Rational judgment modeling (points assigned to criteria) used to evaluate applicants for admission into prenursing programs potentially overlooks students who do not fit into the traditional model. APPROACH: This study compared predictive logistic regression with traditional rational judgment models to classify potential nursing school applicants...
