This paper discusses a conceptual framework for an interdisciplinary education in engineering and nursing health informatics. A team with diverse scientific backgrounds and perspectives is anticipated to effectively and efficiently address healthcare systems problems, which can be facilitated by highly integrated and interactive team settings. Nursing students, for example, are in the best position to assess the functional health status and technology needs of patients and health professionals given their close interactions with them...

BACKGROUND: Nursing students' attitudes toward older people affect the quality of care provided to the aging population. Although gerontological nursing has been delivered as a stand-alone course in Macao since 2008, Macao nursing students' attitudes toward older people have not been investigated. OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this study were 1) to explore nursing students' background information and attitudes toward older people and 2) to examine the presence of relationships between these factors and gerontological nursing education in Macao, a special administrative region of China...

Attrition rates among nursing students are a global issue, and a possible factor in current nursing shortages. Numerous studies have been conducted to determine why students drop out of nursing programmes. The limitations of previous studies have included overly small sample sizes, being largely descriptive, and not focusing on attrition as an outcome. The aim of this study is to review the issue of attrition among undergraduate nursing students in relation to curriculum design. Five electronic databases, namely CINAHL, Medline, Cochrane Library, British Nursing Index, and PsycINFO, were adopted...

BACKGROUND: Increasing numbers of undergraduate nursing students speak English as an additional language. Clinical placements can be difficult for many of these students and their clinical facilitators. The causes of challenges are often reported to be students' lack of English language ability or, for some students, learning styles that are not suited to Western style education. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this research was to investigate how clinical facilitators' pedagogic practices in hospital settings enabled or constrained the learning of students for whom English was an additional language...

BACKGROUND: The international literature has largely conceptualised transition to university as a process of adjustment to both the social and the academic demands of university life. Several factors influence this process including: student, parent and university staff expectations; student preparedness; and student belongingness. Moreover, some student groups (groups well-represented in nursing) appear to have particular difficulty in successfully transitioning to university life. STUDY AIMS: To explore first year nursing students' experiences of the transition to university; to compare nursing students' experiences with those of other disciplines and identify ways of easing the transition for nursing students...

BACKGROUND: Higher education institutes are witnessing an increase in the cultural and ethnic diversity of their student population. While this adds to the learning experience, there is a dearth of evidence examining how students on nursing programmes, from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds learn with and from each other. There is need for a greater understanding of the factors that both facilitate and inhibit intercultural learning within the classroom. OBJECTIVES: This study explored the perceptions and experiences of home students on a postgraduate nursing programme, of intercultural learning within the classroom...

Traditionally mentorship of pre-registration student nurses in clinical practice has followed a 1:1 model. Students are allocated a named mentor for the duration of the placement and they are responsible for supporting and assessing the learner. Many studies have identified problems with this approach to mentorship, including lack of time to facilitate learning on a 1:1 basis. In response to some of these challenges, a collaborative model of mentorship is being adopted both internationally and nationally. This involves placing a range of 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students on placement together, with students being allocated specific patients to care for collaboratively, under supervision...

BACKGROUND: Ensuring adequate knowledge about palliative care and positive attitudes towards death and dying are crucial educational aspects when preparing undergraduate nursing students to respond effectively to the complexities of care for people affected by a progressive, life-limiting illness. In undergraduate nursing education in Greece, the level of students' attained knowledge and developed attitudes towards palliative and end-of-life care remain unknown. PURPOSE: To investigate undergraduate nursing students' knowledge about palliative care and attitudes towards death and end-of-life care, and explore demographic and academic factors as potential moderators of student knowledge and attitudes...

OBJECTIVE: In this systematic review we describe best practices for teaching pharmacology to undergraduate baccalaureate nursing students based on the available evidence. Numerous teaching strategies employed in undergraduate pharmacology courses for nursing students have been summarized and compared for their impact on pharmacology knowledge retention, application of pharmacology theory to practice, and student satisfaction. Future directions for research are discussed. DESIGN: The review was performed using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines for systematic reviews and meta-analyses...

BACKGROUND: Inserting Peripheral Venous Catheters (PVCs) is one of the most routinely performed invasive procedures in nursing care and, if not well managed, it could expose patients to bloodstream-related infections. Knowledge of guidelines for the management of PVCs is fundamental to arise nurses and nursing students (NSs)' awareness on the importance of recommendations' adherence for clinical practice improvement. OBJECTIVE: To determine NSs' theoretical knowledge of evidence-based guidelines for management of PVCs and investigate potential predictive factors associated to recommendations' adherence...

INTRODUCTION: Academic institutions are under pressure to maintain a nearly flawless retention rate, while graduating successful students. The use of standardized admission tests to provide data driven decisions regarding applicant selection is common. The varying reliability and validity of current standardized tests inspired a large Canadian academic institution to use a faculty developed admission test for admission to its practical nursing (PN) program. METHODS: The target population for this project was a purposive, convenience sample of graduated PN students from a large publically funded polytechnic institution in southern Ontario, Canada, who had completed the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE) within 2014-2016 (n = 293)...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to comprehensively and thoroughly examine the specific phenomena and implications of incivility experienced by nursing students during clinical practicum. DESIGN: Based on the hermeneutical philosophy, this study utilizes an exploratory and qualitative design to describe the incivility experiences among nursing students undertaking clinical practicum...
