BACKGROUND: The importance of supporting and promoting faculty scholarship in nursing is acknowledged, but the reality of scholarship for faculty engaged in clinical teaching can be challenging. METHOD: The article describes the development and initial results of the scholarly practice program. Mentorship, time, and limited funding are essentials for the program. RESULTS: After submitting detailed proposals, 15 faculty were chosen to be project leaders in the first 2 years of the program, resulting in 15 presentations, three posters, 19 publications, and a webinar, to date...

BACKGROUND: Health care environments are fraught with fast-paced critical demands and ethical dilemmas requiring decisive nursing actions. Nurse educators must prepare nursing students to practice skills, behaviors, and attitudes needed to meet the challenges of health care demands. Evidence-based, innovative, multimodal techniques with novice and seasoned nurses were incorporated into a baccalaureate (BSN) completion program (RN to-BSN) to deepen learning, complex skill building, reflective practice, teamwork, and compassion toward the experiences of others...

BACKGROUND: Co-curricular experiences provide an opportunity for learning outside of a university classroom. A co-curricular retreat was developed to engage students, faculty, and staff in learning about social justice. Through guided activities and deep discussions, participants explored privileged and oppressed identities in a safe environment. METHOD: Pre- and postsurveys were collected. Quantitative and qualitative data, including personal narratives from two nurse educators, were described...

BACKGROUND: The number of older adults living with chronic conditions is steadily increasing, so nurses must be prepared to care for the needs of this population. However, only one third of nursing education programs include a stand-alone geriatrics course. METHOD: A cross-sectional mixed-methods design was used to compare two cohorts of 46 nursing students. Knowledge, attitude, and interest in older adults were examined using an online survey. The control cohort did not complete the geriatric course...

BACKGROUND: The health impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) is significant. Nurses need knowledge and must work in multidisciplinary teams to address this problem. This study examined the effects of an interprofessional education (IPE) activity with nonhealth care students on associate degree nursing (ADN) students' ACEs knowledge and perspectives on IPE. METHOD: The mixed-methods approach used a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design with an intervention and control group and thematic analysis of focus group data...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this literature review was to explore methodologies for teaching end-of-life (EOL) care to undergraduate nursing students. METHOD: Articles were retrieved by searching CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, and MEDLINE databases using the terms terminal care, palliative care, end of life care, undergraduate nurs*, hospice care, baccalaureate nurs*, prelicensure nurs*, palliative nurs*, training, and undergraduate education. A total of 728 articles were preliminarily evaluated for inclusion, with 22 relevant to this literature review...

BACKGROUND: Having a nursing workforce equipped to provide quality care for patients living with dementia is essential. The purpose of this study was to investigate how undergraduate nursing programs integration of dementia care content into their curricula. METHOD: Using sequential explanatory mixed methods, a stratified sample of 137 representatives of programs in 11 states with dense elderly populations completed a quantitative survey. A subsample (n = 8) completed qualitative e-mail interviews...

BACKGROUND: Nursing students sometimes engage in academically dishonest behaviors despite honor codes and policies. We believe that learning more about nursing students' perceptions of and engagement in academically dishonest behaviors will aid faculty in crafting more effective codes, policies, and educational modules. METHOD: Baccalaureate nursing students from accredited programs across the nation were invited to participate in an online cross-sectional descriptive correlational survey...

BACKGROUND: Clinical decision making is a fundamental aspect of nurses' clinical practice and has a direct impact on the health and well-being of each patient. METHOD: An exploratory analysis of the concept of clinical decision making in nursing will be provided from the two predominant theoretical perspectives: the systematic-positivist model and the intuitive-humanistic model. The origin, aim, value, ontology and epistemology, assumptions, communicability, and context specificity of these two models are discussed...

Studying the effectiveness of educational interventions is centrally important to building the science of nursing education. Yet, the design most commonly used in the study of nursing education interventions-the single-group, preand posttest design-provides limited evidence to support claims of intervention effectiveness. In this Methodology Corner installment, the limitations of the single-group, preand posttest design are outlined and a review of the requirements for establishing stronger arguments for causality is presented...

BACKGROUND: As the demands for high-quality nursing care increase and organizations are held accountable for patient outcomes, health care must be driven by research and evidence-based practice (EBP). Historically, prelicensure nursing students have expressed little interest in these topics as they focus on establishing the clinical skills necessary to provide care and have found that courses on nursing research are not clinically relevant. METHOD: This article presents one institution's approach to undergraduate nursing research education by three initiatives: (a) a summer research program, (b) a distinguished major program, and (c) an EBP approach in the undergraduate nursing research course...

BACKGROUND: Baccalaureate nursing graduates must possess leadership skills, yet few opportunities exist to cultivate leadership abilities in a clinical environment. Peer-facilitated learning may increase the leadership skills of competence, self-confidence, self-reflection, and role modeling. Facilitating human patient simulation provides opportunities to develop leadership skills. METHOD: With faculty supervision, senior baccalaureate students led small-group simulation experiences with sophomore and junior peers and then conducted subsequent debriefings...

BACKGROUND: Graduate nursing programs are challenged to select students who are likely to succeed and who add to nursing workforce diversity. METHOD: For this retrospective study, researchers examined 5 years of admission and retention data from a 4-year Bachelor-to-Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program (n=144) at a large public midwestern university. Using a multinomial logistic regression analysis, four factors were examined to determine which predicted student success, delayed success, or failure: last 60-credit grade point average (GPA), admission essay score, average recommendation letter score, and demographic data (i...

BACKGROUND: Student groups compare evidence-based practice (EBP) to actual practice defined by hospital policies in their clinical rotation sites. This article describes a pilot study evaluating this clinical learning activity. METHOD: Student and faculty surveys were developed and piloted. Purposive sampling with the surveys produced qualitative data and basic statistics to evaluate the learning activity. RESULTS: This study suggests that students' satisfaction with the clinical learning activity was generally positive...

BACKGROUND: The study purposes were to assess the cultural competence level and to identify factors that influence the development of cultural competence in undergraduate nursing students. METHOD: This quantitative study using a comparative and predictive design was conducted to recruit 106 undergraduate nursing students from a university by sending e-mails to all randomly selected Associate in Science in Nursing and RN-to-Bachelor of Science in Nursing students for participation...
