BACKGROUND: The nursing profession has made several unsuccessful attempts to differentiate practice between nurses with associate degrees and baccalaureate degrees entering the workforce. Writing competency has been identified as one potential area of differentiation. METHOD: A descriptive, qualitative research design was used to explore Associate Degree in Nursing-to-Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing (ADN-to-BSN) graduates' perceptions of scholarly writing development in their baccalaureate studies...

BACKGROUND: Anger management is an important skill for nurses to prevent conflicts in the health care environment. Efforts, beginning with nursing education, are required to improve this skill and evaluate the effects. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of a structured counseling program on improving the anger management skills of nursing students. METHOD: The study had an experimental design with pre- and posttests. Twenty-six undergraduate nursing students who were randomly assigned to the groups participated...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have focused on the genetic competencies of undergraduate nursing students. The aims of this study include measuring undergraduate nursing students' knowledge, perceived comfort, and attitude toward genetics, and gauging the effectiveness of a brief genetics education session. METHOD: Undergraduate nursing students (N = 32) were recruited to participate in a survey. A subset (n = 6) then participated in a 1-hour review of basic genetic concepts and activities, with applications to clinical scenarios...

BACKGROUND: This study examines conceptualizations of violence against women in U.S. nursing textbooks published from 1995 to 2005. Framing this pivotal decade, the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was passed and renewed. The American Nurses Association, the National League for Nursing, and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing also recognized violence against women as a health care priority. METHOD: Sampling 107 generalist nursing textbooks from 1995 to 2005, the current study analyzes textbook terminologies, arguments, and protocols...

BACKGROUND: The racial and ethnic distribution of RNs has been unable to keep pace with the growth seen in minority populations. Although nursing schools have recognized the need to increase the number of underrepresented students entering the profession, significant challenges with retention and graduation exist. Guided by Tinto's student integrative model, this study not only sought to understand why students leave, but also to identify what helps them persist. METHOD: A phenomenological approach was used to understand the lived experience of 10 Hispanic nursing students at a Jesuit university in the northeastern United States...

BACKGROUND: Clinical experiences are essential in undergraduate nursing student education to develop professionalism and integrate theory into practice. However, little evidence is available to guide curricular planners in determining the appropriate and effective use of different clinical models in nursing education. METHOD: Nursing students and four schools of nursing in two western Canadian provinces participated in this descriptive exploratory study examining student preference for clinical models...

BACKGROUND: Nursing students are plagued by test anxiety. Chronic stress, heavy academic workloads, and rigorous progression standards are antecedents of test anxiety in nursing students. The purpose of this article is to identify helpful interventions to decrease test anxiety in prelicensure nursing students. METHOD: This systematic review was completed using the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis) guidelines. Four electronic databases were searched using the terms nurs*, anxiety, test, NCLEX, strategies, and exam*...

BACKGROUND: Practice-based learning is an essential aspect of nursing education, and evaluating this form of learning is vital in determining whether students have the competence required to enter nursing practice. However, limited knowledge exists about the influences that shape how competence development is recognized in nursing programs. The purpose of this study was to explore the evaluation of practice-based learning from the students' standpoint. METHOD: A qualitative design based on institutional ethnography was used to investigate evaluation of practice-based learning with students, preceptors, and faculty in a preceptorship practicum...

BACKGROUND: Teaching-learning experience involving more than one health care discipline is a topic of great interest in the health sciences. Few such experiences are known in which medical students taught nursing students a clinical skill. METHOD: The authors evaluated the effect of fourth-year medical students teaching the correct use of a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) to bachelor of science nursing (BSN) students. An fourth-year medical student investigator taught BSN students the correct use of an MDI in individual, private educational sessions, approximately 10 minutes in length, in a large health sciences center...

BACKGROUND: Many nurse educators are reluctant toward technology changes and view it as a burden. An emerging crisis factor among nursing colleges is the average age of faculty members being older than 51 years. The purpose of this study is to describe nurse faculty preferences about the use of technologies and to examine relationships between their preferences and years of experience. METHOD: One hundred eighteen faculty members from a midwestern U.S. nursing college participated in national studies on faculty technology use across 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Patient care problems arise when health care consumers and professionals find health information on the Internet because that information is often inaccurate. To mitigate this problem, nurses can develop Web literacy and share that skill with health care consumers. This study evaluated a Web-literacy intervention for undergraduate nursing students to find reliable Web-based health information. METHOD: A pre- and postsurvey queried undergraduate nursing students in an informatics course; the intervention comprised lecture, in-class practice, and assignments about health Web site evaluation tools...

BACKGROUND: Navigating multiple instructors and clinical agencies can impair students' learning by increasing their cognitive load and perceived stress. This study used cognitive load theory to guide the home base clinical model (HBCM), which assigned students to the same faculty and hospital unit for two consecutive medical-surgical clinical courses. METHOD: The study used a quasi-experimental three-group design to evaluate the effects of the HBCM on students' perceived stress, compared with groups who changed hospital or instructor...

BACKGROUND: Nurses report inadequacies in health promotion practices. This study investigated attitudes toward being role models for healthy eating, and examined predictors of health promotion attitudes in preregistered nurses. METHOD: A questionnaire was completed by 493 preregistered nurses. Measures included health promotion attitudes, healthy lifestyle index, self-esteem, and body satisfaction. RESULTS: Preregistered nurses (89.5%) felt that nurses should be role models for health...
