REVIEW
Genevieve J H Quek, Shefaly Shorey
Preceptorship is a commonly used clinical teaching method for new nurses, and perceptions regarding it are varied and come from many sources. The aim of this integrative review is to explore the perceptions of preceptorship from preceptors and newly graduated nurses. Three electronic databases were searched for relevant articles and the Joanna Briggs Institute's critical appraisal tools were used to assess for suitability before inclusion in the review. Twenty articles were included eventually. A total of six focus areas were identified: (a) role of the preceptor, (b) preceptor preparation and support, (c) challenges of being a preceptor, (d) preceptorship significance for newly graduated nurses, (e) needs of newly graduated nurses, and (f) factors affecting the preceptor-preceptee relationship...

BACKGROUND: <Fundamental Nursing> is the first specialized curriculum for nursing students, laying a foundation for nursing education. <Fundamental Nursing> includes many important basic nursing skills, which suggests the traditional examination could not evaluate how well students learn. Since the OSCE (objective structured clinical examination) developed, it has been used among newly graduated nurses, postgraduate nursing students and achieved some success. OSCE might be a better way to evaluate and reflect students' fundamental nursing skills and comprehensive abilities, although few studies have put it into practice...

REVIEW
Blanca Miller
Although nurses have a legal and ethical responsibility to educate and help patients complete advance directives, few nurses have a clear understanding of their role. This review integrates 19 studies published between 1990 and 2018 of the knowledge or confidence of nurses and nursing students regarding advance directives or of education on advance directives in nursing curricula. Fewer than half of working nurses demonstrated knowledge, confidence, or both regarding advance directives, and nursing programs which cover advance directives at all typically devote only 1...

Mental illness is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in society. Undergraduate nursing students designed and implemented a mental health awareness campaign called the I Will Help You initiative as part of their senior leadership nursing course. The aims of the initiative were to: spread awareness on mental illness; give the general public the skills and resources needed to identify and assist individuals who are struggling with mental illness; and decrease the stigma surrounding mental illness. A website, four online educational modules, four social media accounts, and two videos were designed by the students in order to promote the initiative...

BACKGROUND: Poor sleep quality and depressive symptoms are common among college nursing students, and may be associated with each other. However, the mechanism for this association has not been well understood.

METHODS: 242 undergraduate nursing students at a public university in the northeast United States completed an online survey delivered through SurveyMonkey® with self-reports of sleep quality, coping styles, and depressive symptoms from October to November 2015...

Advance Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) are increasing in number and their value is becoming more evident as Texas and the region face a severe shortage of primary care physicians. APRNs can assist in meeting the needs of a growing and complex healthcare system. Increasing the pool of APRNs will allow healthcare providers to improve access to care and deliver quality outcomes. Hospitals and other healthcare providers have been limited in the number of APRN students they could accept for clinical training due to cost...

Nurses hoping to enter a research intensive doctoral program have a choice of program delivery modes, faculty expertise, and multiple points of entry in addition to the traditional post masters. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) lists doctoral programs in nursing in over 300 universities in the United States (U.S.) and Puerto Rico, with most institutions offering more than one type of doctorate. For prospective students who want to maximize their likelihood of significant, sustained scientific impact, identifying research-intensive Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs with faculty who have a topic match is key...
