This study examined the incremental values of academic predictors that may be adopted as nursing school admission criteria. The findings revealed that using additional content areas of mathematics, reading, and English in conjunction with science contributes significantly to the prediction of early nursing school success. This study demonstrates an incremental validity approach that provides valuable guidelines to inform the selection of effective, accurate, and cost-effective admission tools for screening qualified nursing candidates...

This project was implemented to determine if the combination of video recording and reflection could enhance student learning of specific nursing skills. Students' answers to open-ended questions validated the importance of iPad videos for their skill improvement. The findings confirmed that iPad videos provided an effective tool for students to evaluate their performance and reflect on methods for improvement.

Preceptorship has been identified as an effective strategy for facilitating clinical learning among diverse health care professionals. The benefits of preceptored experiences are well documented; however, the preceptorship model is also vulnerable to challenges. There has been limited evaluation of preceptorship with nurse practitioner (NP) students. This article describes an evaluation of the preceptorship experience from the perspective of NP students. In particular, the facilitators and barriers to clinical learning are described...

Selecting appropriate teaching and learning strategies within an overarching teaching philosophy is 1 way of influencing nursing students' self-directedness. We conducted research to compare the self-directed learning readiness and learning attributes in different years of study of undergraduate nursing students who are exposed to traditional, lecture-based learning and problem-based learning strategies. We found that readiness for self-directed learning is not dependent on the dominant teaching-learning strategy used in the nursing program...

Nursing students' exposure to stress negatively affects both academic and clinical performance and potentially their future as professional nurses. This pilot study measured the effects of a 10-week cognitive behavioral therapy-based stress management program, using a quasi-experimental design. Independent t tests showed positive effects of the training program compared with a control group. Students' perceived stress management competency, self-efficacy, and self-esteem were higher 1 year after the intervention...

Many programs have implemented end-of-program predictive testing to identify students at risk of NCLEX-RN failure. Unfortunately, for many students, end-of-program testing comes too late. Regression and relative importance analysis were used to explore relationships between 9 content area assessments and an end-of-program assessment shown to be predictive of NCLEX-RN success. Results indicate that scores on assessments for content areas such as medical surgical nursing and care of children are predictive of end-of-program test scores, suggesting that instructors should provide remediation at the first sign of lagging performance...

Assessing clinical judgment for safe nursing practice is a challenge. In this study, the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric (LCJR) was used to evaluate clinical judgment of junior and senior nursing students in the clinical setting. Juniors demonstrated an accomplished level on the total scale and all 4 subscales, whereas seniors had exemplary clinical judgment on the total scale and 3 of 4 subscales. The study provides evidence in support of the use of the LCJR to assess students' clinical judgment in the clinical practice setting...

Nursing faculty need to provide students with problem-solving skills during their formative academic years, and feminist pedagogy supported by classroom participation may foster these skills. Through the lens of feminist pedagogy, factors that influence classroom participation of nursing students were identified using the College and University Classroom Environment Inventory. Nursing students reported higher levels of attendance and punctuality compared with preparation and contribution to class discussion and favored personalization and equity over innovation and individualization in the classroom...

As misbehaviors online in higher education have been widely addressed in recent research, the discourse on cyberincivility has become a contemporary issue in health professions education. However, studies regarding cybercivility, particularly from an interprofessional education standpoint, are few. This study assessed the knowledge, experience, and perceptions about cyberincivility among students in 4 health care disciplines. Their preferred means of learning about cybercivility and the perceived benefits of such education are also discussed...

To keep pace with the ever-changing health care delivery system, it is important to transform the way future nurses are educated, both in classroom and in clinical settings, to care for people along the life and care continuum, not only in acute-care settings. The purpose of this article is to describe a new approach to educating baccalaureate nursing students using immersion practicums that expose students to population health, transitions of care, care coordination, and the multiple roles a nurse engages in along the continuum...

The purpose of this study was to synthesize the available empirical evidence on prelicensure nursing students' medication errors. A systematic literature review of original research publications was carried out. After the selection process, only 19 articles complied with all the requirements for inclusion in this review. The findings showed that few studies to date have analyzed errors and near misses involving nursing students, and the current evidence suggests that the incidence of them is high.

Nursing students need opportunities to prepare for real-world problems that they may encounter as they enter the profession. Incivility and bullying behaviors persist in health care. The purpose of this project was to increase students' awareness of incivility and prepare them to respond to it. Two teaching methods were compared. Results supported that interactive civility training using cognitive rehearsal provided by nursing student peers was as effective as instruction from an expert.

Techniques to help decrease students' stress and anxiety during a nursing program can be beneficial to their overall health and mental well-being. A quasi-experimental design was used to examine if a peer evaluation technique during clinical skill practice sessions decreases anxiety prior to skill performance evaluation with nursing faculty. Participant feedback supports the integration of a peer evaluation technique when learning clinical skills.

School counselors are uniquely poised to influence career development among middle and high school students interested in nursing. This study examined 204 school counselors' perceptions about nursing and secondary educational preparation. Despite national and local efforts to increase enrollment in baccalaureate and higher nursing programs, counselors remain unaware of the need for increased education in nursing. Nurse educators need to align with school counselors to adequately prepare students interested in nursing as a health career...

This study examined the presence of grade inflation in clinical courses 9 years after implementing strategies to improve grading precision. A comparison of clinical grades for cohort I (1997-2002) with cohort II (2009-2016) showed statistically lower grades in 2 courses (Adult 1 and Maternity) for cohort II. Suggestions for changing the way clinical experiences are planned, executed, and evaluated are provided.
