In an aim to improve first-time NCLEX-RN pass rates, some nursing programs have instituted high-stakes testing. This literature review investigated nursing faculty understanding of and student experiences with high-stakes testing. High-stakes testing is an assessment used to make decisions about student progression or completion of a nursing program. The literature revealed both negative and positive consequences associated with high-stakes testing. Literature from state boards of nursing and professional nursing organizations was also reviewed for recommendations...

Substance use disorder (SUD) among nurses is a serious practice issue that poses a significant risk to patients and nurses. However, the topic of SUD is inadequately addressed in nursing education. A comprehensive education strategy was implemented and evaluated in 2 prelicensure nursing programs to improve nursing students' knowledge, skills, and attitudes about SUD among nurses.

Prisons provide an ideal learning experience to prepare prelicensure students with the knowledge and skill set needed for practice in the 21st century. Beginning descriptive evidence demonstrates that correctional health is an innovative community resource to educate nursing students in today's changing model of health care delivery and practice. This article shares results from a retrospective analysis of the perceptions and experiences of nursing students during their community clinical rotation in an all-male maximum security prison...

Clinical experiences are the hallmark of prelicensure nursing programs and assist students with applying nursing theory into practice. The literature is limited with respect to nursing student and instructor preferences for type of clinical model to facilitate student learning. This article explores these perceptions in the nursing programs of 5 universities located in 4 Western Canadian provinces. Findings support the use of both nonblock and block clinical models throughout nursing education programs.

Understanding different cultures is important in the education of nursing students who will become the health care workforce of our future interdependent and globalized societies. International practicum courses help students and nurses understand different cultures. This article describes an innovative approach to nursing education and understanding diverse cultures, in the context of a hybrid course (online course coupled with face-to-face practicum experiences), which enrolled nursing students from opposite hemispheres...

Increasing the number of BSN-prepared nurses at the bedside is directly linked to improved health care outcomes. However, employers are challenged to find enough BSN graduates to meet workforce demands. This article presents an educational model that uses evidence-based practices to increase enrollment, retention, and graduation rates of RN students in a BSN program (RN-BSN) in a resource limited rural community. This exemplar may equip nurse educators with strategies to adopt in their own communities.

Personal self-care should be an expectation of the professional nursing role. This study evaluated self-care behaviors and perceptions of prelicensure nursing students after the integration of curricular interventions designed to promote self-care behaviors. Although few statistically significant changes were found, findings indicate that changes were beginning to occur and self-care behaviors were not declining: the curricular interventions are having a positive impact on self-care behaviors in nursing students...

A comparison of 2 research studies revealed that nursing faculty and students share limited understanding and specific misconceptions about foundational genomic concepts. Mean scores on the Genomic Nursing Concept Inventory were 48% for faculty and 42% for students. Identifying misconceptions is important when designing educational strategies for students who will inevitably care for patients with genomic concerns. Common clinical scenarios requiring accurate interpretation of genomic terminology, gene function and expression, and genetic counseling principles are presented...

The authors systematically reviewed the nursing literature for articles describing substance use disorders (SUDs) education in schools of nursing. Five literature databases were searched, producing 3107 retrieved articles, of which 12 were included in this review. A Medical Education Research Study Quality Instrument score was calculated for each study. The included studies demonstrated that teaching nursing students about SUDs produced a positive impact on their attitudes, knowledge, and skills.

A key element to online learning is the ability to create a sense of presence to improve learning outcomes. This quasi-experimental study evaluated the impact of interactive video communication versus text-based feedback and found a significant difference between the 2 groups related to teaching, social, and cognitive presence. Recommendations to enhance presence should focus on providing timely feedback, interactive learning experiences, and opportunities for students to establish relationships with peers and faculty...

The purpose of this study was to determine whether an online program, the Clinical Instructor Program (CIP), was helpful in improving feelings of efficacy for nurse clinicians in the role of clinical instructor. In addition, understanding of the clinical instructor role, knowledge of instructional content, and understanding of instructional strategies were evaluated before and after CIP participation. A primary finding of the study was that overall self-efficacy significantly improved.

Forty-eight students engaged with a therapy dog for 15 minutes during finals week to evaluate the effect on stress. Psychological (Perceived Stress Scale, visual analog scales) and physiologic stress (vital signs, salivary cortisol) measures were collected before and after the intervention. Paired t tests showed significant reductions in all psychological and physiologic measures except diastolic blood pressure. This supports animal-assisted therapy as an effective stress management strategy for nursing and other college students...

This study examined nursing students' perceptions of confidentiality, accountability, and e-professionalism in relation to Facebook. All of the students were aware that posting patients' names and pictures of patients constituted a confidentiality breach. When comparing students based on educational status, there were differing opinions on whether employers should use Facebook profile information for hiring decisions. Nursing programs should provide current education, including clear and up-to-date policies, about social media use...
