Nurses must learn essential skills based in transcultural nursing to address issues of equity and social justice. The development of a model for nursing practice for an urban nurse-led drop-in center for individuals experiencing marginalization provides an opportunity for student nurses to learn transcultural nursing skills that shifts care from acknowledging the need of others to accompanying others on their health journey. The practice model provides the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate nursing students at Augsburg University to de-emphasize tasks and build relationships...

The usability and acceptability of patient-centered mobile health tracking apps among most clinical populations are unknown. This mixed-methods feasibility study evaluated the usability and acceptability of the Health Storylines app among 32 adult radiation oncology patients in a 2-week trial. Data were collected via pre- and post-app use surveys and digital analytics. Participants accessed the app platform a total of 711 times. The overall usability of the Heath Storylines app was rated favorably, and 81% of participants reported the app easy to use...

Cheryl A Anderson, John P Connolly
An organizing framework for understanding adolescent birth stress in immediate postpartum does not exist. Researchers evaluated adolescent birth stress within 72 hours postpartum via a modification of Slade's conceptual model of risk factors for posttraumatic stress (PTS). Birth stress was defined by negative birth appraisal and subjective distress. Precipitating factors pain management, partner presence, and delivery type, plus maintaining factor infant complications, predicted negative birth appraisal. Predisposing factors depression and prior trauma predicted subjective distress...

A theory of the structure of nursing knowledge is proposed. Using retroductive reasoning to build upon an existing theory, the goal of the Nursing Knowledge Pyramid is to integrate disparate forms of nursing knowledge into a comprehensive, coherent, and useful structure to enhance the learning, development, automation, and accessibility of nursing knowledge. Education uses are discussed.

This article evaluates the feasibility of a nursing intervention when adjusting to deep brain stimulation for Parkinson disease. Eight couples were included in the study. Main activities of the intervention were a diary and individualized meetings between nurses, patients, and spouses with a focus on everyday life and expectations to deep brain stimulation. All meetings were audio recorded and analyzed together with the content of the diary. The intervention was evaluated as feasible and experienced as meaningful...

Conditions within jails and prisons are a public health crisis, necessitating critical reform measures. An innovative collaboration between a Midwestern College of Nursing and Cook County Department of Corrections provides students with the opportunity to develop health education for both those detained in the jail and the corrections officers. A phenomenological approach, recognizing the importance of intuitive and cognitive understanding, is offered as a framework for practice in complex environments. Principles of restorative justice provide a bridge between primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention and the nursing practice possible within these institutions of incarceration and the communities to which people return...

In today's era of nursing, the role of a unique disciplinary knowledge that is grounded in philosophy is essential to inform nursing practice, fill knowledge gaps, improve the quality of nursing education, and guide the theoretical development of nursing. Realism and relativism have contributed to the development of the nursing discipline by providing the basis of evidence-based nursing practice, nursing research, nursing education, and theoretical construction. This article explores the role of realism and relativism in the development of the discipline of nursing and presents their contributions to the work of nurse clinicians, nurse researchers, nurse educators, and nurse theorists...

Instrument development and content validity testing resulted in a new instrument to measure the relatively new concept of professional governance. Professional governance is defined as the accountability, professional obligation, collateral relationships and decision making of a professional, foundational to autonomous practice and achievement of exemplary empirical outcomes. Fourteen experts with subject matter expertise either in measurement development or in creating professional practice environments assessed the validity of the proposed items and the instrument...

Communication is imperative for end-of-life decision-making; however, descriptions of key strategies used by nurses are missing. A phenomenological approach was used to interpret interviews from 10 hospice/palliative nurses. The overarching pattern is the closing composition. Key communication strategies/patterns include establishing context, acknowledging through attentive listening, making it safe for them to die, planning goals of care, and being honest. Essential is the awareness that nurse, patient, and family all hold expertise in the subject matter...

Human health is substantially impacted by the state of the environment, and environmental degradation has a disproportionate impact on persons with less immediate access to financial and social power. This article calls for upstream nursing action to address the natural environment in order to turn about health injustices and improve health for all. Such action would move nursing towards a greater actualization of the nursing environmental domain. The health impacts of climate change, air and water quality, and toxic chemical exposure are substantiated and specific policy leadership recommendations are proposed...

We investigated the influence of sociodemographic factors, acculturation, ethnicity, health status, and spirituality on older adults' health-related decisions when confronted with a choice between competing options. The sample included 451 participants: African Americans (15.74%), Afro-Caribbeans (25.5%), European Americans (36.36%), and Hispanic Americans (22.4%). Compared with others, European Americans and Hispanic Americans favored quality of life over a lengthy life. Sociodemographic factors, acculturation, ethnicity, health status, and spirituality accounted for variations of decisions...

Twelve persons with dementia were interviewed about their former work lives. Their motivation for choosing their past work was influenced by values of their contemporary culture. Those who had come to terms with their illness had positive feelings about their past contributions in their former paid work. However, they often felt that unpaid work was taken for granted and not fully recognized by family or society. Some wrestled with accepting their illness; they were grieving their losses, regardless of former success...
