This research was conducted to identify the acculturation and health behaviors in the African Immigrant population, which is presently living in the United States. Ten studies met the criteria and included health behaviors of status, access to health care, psychiatric services, prostate cancer, morbidity and mortality, HIV knowledge and beliefs, perceptions of suicide, smoking, and obesity. Acculturation was measured using the most common social constructs that influenced the health behaviors of nativity, English (language proficiency), age at immigration, education and socioeconomic status, religion, age at immigration, and length of stay in the U...

Terry D Ward, Tiffany Morris
Critical thinking is essential in the practice of the nurse generalist, today. Nursing faculty is frequently trying to identify teaching strategies in promoting critical thinking and engaging students in active learning. To close the gap between critical thinking and student success, a school in the south east United States implemented the use of the 'think like a nurse initiative" for incoming junior nursing students. Faculty collaborated to adopt the fundamental and essential nursing concepts for nursing students to support thinking like a nurse...

Ethnic minorities in the United States have a higher prevalence of obesity, with higher levels reported in Latinos/Hispanics. A qualitative study was done to understand perceptions of obesity and identify factors that may enhance the attractiveness of a behavioral weight-loss intervention in the Latino community. Weight loss trials designed to target the Latino/Hispanic population may benefit by considering the Latino/Hispanic perception of the problem, the barriers to weight loss, and for study participation that may be specific to this population...

Global health issues are concerns of all public health officials throughout the world. This entails reviewing aspects such as the impact of poverty and the lack of access to quality health care, ignored global killers such as Diseases (Infectious diseases-Malaria, HIV/AIDS), Natural Disasters (Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Floods, and Armed Conflict), Health in the Media, and the Involvement of Pharmaceutical Corporations and Medical Research. These issues are challenges to many needless deaths. Global initiatives are not advancing as they should, such as access to drugs and medications, which some are political...

A Rush Ryan, Basil H Aboul-Enein
The New Testament is regarded as the authoritative spiritual guidance for all practicing Christians. The relationship between religion and health continues to exert a significant role in an individual's, health, behavior, and lifestyle. This study aims at establishing a link between the Scriptural and early theological tradition of the body, from Jesus Christ to the early church, with an eye toward identifying themes that can help promote health and well-being among Christian communities today.

REVIEW
Marianne F Moore
This review surveyed qualitative and quantitative studies to explore the expectations around birth that are held by women from different cultures. These studies are grouped according to expectations of personal control expectations of support from partner/others/family; expectations of carel behavior from providers such as nurses, doctors, and/or midwives; expectations about the health of the baby; and expectations about pain in childbirth. Discussed are the findings and the role that Western culture in medicine, power and privilege are noted in providing care to these women...

REVIEW
Lisa Whitfield-Harris, Joan Such Lockhart
Diversity in academia requires attention, especially with the expected increase in minority populations in the United States (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, (AACN) 2014). Despite theoretical papers that suggest that several challenges are encountered by minority faculty employed in predominately White institutions, a dearth of research on this topic has been published. The purpose of this literature review was to analyze the published research that addressed the workplace environment of African-American faculty employed in predominately White institutions...

It has become crucial for nursing facilities to rapidly train future nurse aides and remove any barriers to their matriculation into the field of care. Facilities feel the organizational burden of insufficient staffing and need to lever all effective programs to train future employees. The facility-based, Nurse Aide Training Competency Evaluation Programs (NATCEP) serve as a viable option to help fill shortages in the professional medical workforce. Data were analyzed from the National Nursing Assistant Survey to provide an overview of the benefits of using facility-trained nurse aides, versus those trained elsewhere, including their own perceptions of training and abilities...

REVIEW
Katie L Love
This study presents a systematic literature review exploring the uses and potential benefits of Black Feminism in nursing research. Black Feminism may benefit knowledge development for nursing in a variety of ways, such as illuminating the multifaceted factors of Black women's identities in helping scholars move away from generalization of experiences, to improve understanding of health disparities, and making such changes by broadening the social consciousness of the nurse researchers, who are predominantly White...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Gwendolyn Rice
Having highly competent clinical faculty in an institution of higher learning is a prerequisite for graduating safe nurses in the future. The purpose of this project was to increase each clinical nurse's knowledge and skills for the new role of clinical adjunct nursing faculty. Successful implementation of this program will help promote consistency in effective job performance of clinical adjunct faculty and facilitate achievement of the projected goals and outcomes. This orientation program was presented in a one day face-to-face encounter with twelve (12) adjunct faculty members, tenured and others on the tenured track...

Geraldine Brown
A few years ago, I was privileged to visit the Republic of Cuba as a summer vacation. Officially, this Spanish island is the largest island in the Caribbean, with more than 12 million people. It is only second as being most populous after Hispaniola with its people, culture and customs. Havana is the capital and Cuba's largest city. The United States lies to the immediate north only about 95 miles away, and the Bahamas and Mexico to the west, the Cayman Islands and Jamaica are on the southern end, and Haiti and the Dominion Republic are in the southeastern area...

This research examined whether the same predictive variables of mothers'perceptions of child vulnerability are present for extremely low birth-weight (ELBW) and very low birth-weight (VLBW) infants. Data were collected using 120 infants and 119 mothers. In ELBW infants, days until first bottle feeding, feeding problems, and feeding practices accounted for 69.9% of the variance (p < .001) at four months; feeding problems 49.9% (p < .001) at six months; and days until the first bottle feeding and feeding problems were 41...

A naturalistic qualitative research study was conducted focusing on young African American women with breast cancer and their biological mothers. Semistructured interviews were conducted with 14 participants to identify their knowledge, beliefs and feelings of breast cancer. Several women reported issues of medical distrust; limited treatment options; breast cancer is a death warrant. Social support was essential for survival. Implications of the research for nursing education and the medical profession are discussed...

Crystal Day-Black, Earline B Merrill, Lois Konzelman, Tammie T Williams, Natalie Hart
Serious games have "re-emerged" as innovative teaching-learning strategies that researchers have shown to be effective in improving student learning outcomes. "Serious games" refer to games that are driven by educational goals, not entertainment. The use of serious games as part of the teaching-learning experience in nursing education fits into the philosophy and strategies of active learning. The "digital" nursing student needs engagement, stimulation, realism, and entertainment not more readings and Powerpoint supplements in the classroom to support learning...

Crystal Day-Black
The use of Smartphones in teaching and learning is transforming academia and affords a shift in paradigm for Historically Black Universities and Colleges (HBCUs) nurse programs for the 21st century. Smartphone use in academic settings has gained popularity among college students. For minority and low-income students, this handheld device may be the only source to real-time Internet-accessible information, and in anchoring social, vocational, and academic habits. Nursing faculty acceptance of smartphones in the classroom assists in clinical and simulation learning experiences...
