BACKGROUND: Disasters are high-impact events. Tabletop exercises are a historic education strategy used to determine policies, procedures, and strengths and challenges for those involved. A tabletop exercise was designed for students to demonstrate transfer of prior medical-surgical content to a novel context of a hospital patient surge following a disaster. To accompany the tabletop exercise, a tabletop matrix was developed as an instrument to measure students' learning transfer of medical-surgical content...

BACKGROUND: The KWL (Know, Want to know, Learned) chart was introduced to facilitate student critical thinking in a large, multisite, medical-surgical nursing course that uses problem-based learning. METHOD: Before class, students complete KWL charts in conjunction with concept videos to document prior learning. Then, they form groups to work on case studies during class. Faculty review the KWL charts for evidence of problem-solving growth. If evidence exists that students struggle with a concept, those results are used to remediate the content...

BACKGROUND: Nurses spend more time with health care consumers than any other health care professional and are the largest, most trusted group of health care providers in the U.S. health care system. At the same time, an increasingly diverse and complex society requires that nurses possess a unique capacity to care for consumers using culturally congruent and ethical approaches to care. This challenges nurse educators to provide learning experiences that teach emotional and affective forms of learning that complement the clinical skills acquired through the student's educational experience...

BACKGROUND: Educating Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) students for an increasingly complex health care environment requires novel applications of learning concepts and technology. A deliberate and thoughtful process is required to integrate concepts of the DNP program into practice paradigm changes to subsequently improve students' abilities to innovate solutions to complex practice problems. METHOD: The authors constructed or participated in electronic portfolio development inspired by theories of metacognition and integrated learning...

BACKGROUND: In many middle eastern universities, English is the medium of instruction and testing. As nurse educators construct multiple choice questions (MCQs), it is essential that items are developed to be valid and reliable to assess student learning. METHOD: This study examined the structure of 98 MCQs included in nursing examinations at three middle eastern universities using a checklist composed of 22 literature-based principles. RESULTS: Ninety MCQs (91...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to determine the degree to which the educational outcomes of the accelerated, redesigned bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program at The British Columbia Institute of Technology are similar to those of its previous program. METHOD: A prospective cohort study compared outcomes for the first two classes of students in the redesigned program with those of the final class of students in the original program. Data were gathered from administrative records, focus group discussions, and online surveys for BSN students (later, graduates), faculty, and staff, a focus group discussion with Specialty Nursing faculty, and interviews with program leadership and representatives of provincial health authorities...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the effects of flipped learning in a nursing informatics course. METHOD: Sixty-four undergraduate students attending a flipped learning nursing informatics course at a university in South Korea participated in this study in 2013. Of these, 43 students participated at University A, and 46 students participated at University B, as a comparison group. Three levels of Kirkpatrick's evaluation model were used: level one (the students' satisfaction), level two (achievement on the course outcomes), and level three (self-perceived nursing informatics competencies)...

BACKGROUND: Simulation is used in nursing curricula to augment or replace the traditional clinical practice experiences. Studies reported varying attitudes of nursing students to simulation-based learning. The aim of this study was to conduct an exploratory factor analysis of the Attitudes of Nursing Students to Simulation-Based Learning scale to be used to explore the nursing students' attitudes related to simulation. METHOD: Data were collected online from 217 nursing students at a U...

BACKGROUND: Increasing the number of nurses with doctorates is a goal of the nursing profession. The Georgia Nursing Leadership Coalition developed a survey to understand the perspectives of nurses pursuing doctoral degrees in Georgia to improve recruitment and retention strategies. METHOD: A 26-item online survey was distributed to all students enrolled in Georgia-based doctoral programs in nursing in spring 2014. RESULTS: One hundred fifty responses were received (54% response rate)...

BACKGROUND: The study purpose was to examine changes in physical therapy (PT) and nursing (RN) student attitudes toward interprofessional learning (IPL) and interprofessional collaboration (IPC) following a high-fidelity code simulation. METHOD: PT (n = 42) and RN (n = 35) students, while working together to transfer a simulated patient, had to respond to a sudden and unexpected medical emergency. Pre- and postsurveys included the Interdisciplinary Education Perception Scale (IEPS), Readiness for Interprofessional Learning Scale (RIPLS), and Attitudes Toward Health Care Teams Scale (ATHCTS)...

During the past decade, substantial concern has developed among scholars from a variety of disciplines about the common use and interpretation of p-values, used to indicate the statistical significance of inferential statistical analyses reported in quantitative studies. These debates have highlighted a widespread misunderstanding of p-values and the more limited role they should take in informing study conclusions and policy decisions. In this month's "Methodology Corner," I provide an overview of this debate, describe the limitations of statistical significance testing, and suggest that the nursing education research enterprise would benefit from following a more Nightingalean approach to statistical analysis, where the practical importance-the meaningfulness-of study findings is emphasized...

BACKGROUND: Scholarly writing is required in nursing, and some students are unable to communicate effectively through writing. Faculty members may struggle with the grading of written assignments. A writing team, consisting of a nursing faculty member, the school of nursing library liaison, and members from academic support services, implemented strategies including workshops, handouts, and use of exemplars to improve student writing and to provide support to faculty. Few students sought help from the writing team...

BACKGROUND: When advanced practice nurses (APNs) encounter the need to address a bereaved individual's spirituality, gaps in educational preparation may prevent effective intervention. In addition, past and current research studies have not provided clear guidance for spiritually based bereavement care curricula within the graduate APN program. METHOD: Graduate advanced practice faculty successfully introduced classroom-based spiritual bereavement care education modules for APN students...

BACKGROUND: Nursing programs must ensure that graduate competencies in quality and patient safety are sufficient to meet practice needs. Student perceptions of the extent to which they acquired the knowledge, skills, and attitudes, as well as the importance and levels of preparedness associated with the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies, were measured. METHOD: Using a descriptive cross-sectional design, a convenience sample of 73 nursing students was surveyed using the QSEN Student Evaluation Survey tool...

BACKGROUND: Strengthening attention-regulation efficiency of nurse graduates is important to the quality and safety of nursing practice in increasingly complex and cognitively distracting workplaces. Neuroscientific evidence suggests that regular practice of focused meditation can enhance attentional skills. This study explored meditation as an educational strategy for enhancing nursing students' attentional efficiency. METHOD: A randomized-control trial with 52 prelicensure nursing students examined differences between those who meditated and those who did not on measurements of alerting, orienting, and executive attention...
