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...

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...

BACKGROUND: Population health concepts, such as upstream thinking, present challenging ideas to undergraduate nursing students grounded in an acute care orientation. The purpose of this study was to describe how team-based learning (TBL) influenced academic outcomes in a community health nursing course. METHOD: A descriptive correlational design examined the relationship among student scores on individual readiness assurance tests (iRATs), team readiness assurance tests (tRATs), and the final examination...

This article presents the initial results of an ongoing 5-year longitudinal study on undergraduate students' satisfaction within a collaborative BScN program and predictors of satisfaction with their nursing education. METHOD: BScN nursing students from one group of collaborative sites participated in a survey pertaining to satisfaction with their program...

BACKGROUND: The 2013 NCLEX-RN(®) test plans specified an underlying general entry-level nursing ability encompassing all the tested specific categories and subcategories, as indicated by a second-order factor structure. This study attempted to verify this hierarchical factor structure in real data. METHOD: Data from the RN Comprehensive Predictor(®) 2013 assessment, developed by Assessment Technologies Institute using the 2013 NCLEX-RN test plans, were used to test the entry-level nursing ability second-order factor structure by a confirmatory factor analysis technique...

The authors, guided by Peplau's interpersonal theory in nursing, examined whether stress and perceived faculty support were related to substance misuse. METHOD: A quantitative, cross-sectional, correlational design was used. Data were collected from members of the National Student Nurses Association using an Internet questionnaire...

BACKGROUND: Intimate partner violence (IPV) and dating violence is a significant problem among college-age students. IPV has an associative outcome of depression and lower academic performance, but it is unknown how it relates to undergraduate nursing students. METHOD: Two literature searches were performed for IPV and depression from a combination of 87 databases including EBSCO, Proquest, Nursing at OVID, Medline, PubMed, CINAHL, PsycARTICLES, JSTOR, SAGE journals, and Google Scholar...

BACKGROUND: Research has shown that diverse nursing students report experiencing numerous issues that affect their progression through nursing programs. At the same time, research has also shown that nurse educators find it challenging to meet the needs of these students. What is missing is an analysis of how these two perspectives intersect. METHOD: A mixed-methods parallel study compared the perceptions of diverse nursing students (n =13) and nurse educators (n = 22) regarding the learning environment in a baccalaureate nursing program...

BACKGROUND: Affective learning is valued in nursing, but it is often difficult to plan and evaluate learning activities in this domain. Contemplative activities can promote learning and are relatively easy to implement. These activities can promote deep, reflective thinking. METHOD: A variety of contemplative activities were used in undergraduate nursing courses. Students participated in and reflected on a vigil promoting domestic violence awareness. They attended two different art exhibits and related these exhibits to nursing...

METHOD: This case report reflects an overview of the first year of full implementation, and survey results from nurse leaders and faculty at the 3-year time point. RESULTS: Following its third year of an academic-service partnership, the shared mission, vision, and values have resulted in stronger NCLEX-RN results, improved quality initiatives, and trends for improvements in patient outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Online learning formats are prevalent in current higher education. Given the changing student demographics and the drive for creativity in educating a technology-savvy student, it is imperative to incorporate innovative and alternative learning modalities to engage these students. METHOD: This pilot study was designed as a quality improvement program evaluation comparing the effects of an online learning module with traditional classroom delivery of transcultural nursing content using a posttest two-group survey design in associate degree nursing students...

BACKGROUND: Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs have experienced rapid growth across the United States. With the expansion of electronic health records, DNP students are expected to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to manage data and apply informatics concepts. However, little information exists to help faculty evaluate student competency in these areas. METHOD: This retrospective analysis evaluated the competencies of a convenience sample of DNP students enrolled in an online informatics course...

BACKGROUND: Interrater reliability of student-written assignments within a nursing education program is a desirable characteristic to ensure uniform quality of academic work. As online programs that advance RNs to baccalaureate-prepared nurses (i.e., RN-to-BSN programs) grow in popularity, the challenges of quality control increase. METHOD: Grading data representing mean, median, mode, and range from 19 course sections in an online RN-to-BSN program were submitted...
