Simulation has been introduced in recent years into international nursing curricula. Many educational establishments have developed simulation centres that resemble the ward settings nursing students will be exposed to so that they can use the same equipment as they will in clinical practice. This is referred to as high fidelity simulation training (HFST). This article reflects on an example of a multidisciplinary HFST scenario in the context of the assessment and accountability and learning domains of the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards...

Nurses' decisions about their intent to remain in the workforce are based on various factors. A healthy work environment in which work done well is recognised and appreciated contributes to nurses' satisfaction and better patient outcomes. This article examines the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses framework for a healthy work environment, focusing on standards for meaningful recognition. Reflective practice, which provides a self-analytical approach to appreciate and value one's work, is viewed as self-recognition...

This article shows how simulation can be modified and adapted to benefit higher education institutions (HEIs) in a variety of situations. These situations can involve the engagement of service users (SUs) and moulage, or application of make-up to simulate clinical presentations, to ensure skill enhancement, ultimately to support and empower students so they can achieve their potential. This article describes a unique collaboration between staff at an HEI and SUs, who have worked together in simulation activities...

An increased number of emergency secondary care surgical admissions has intensified the challenge of meeting acute care patients' needs, while not interrupting elective admissions. Aneurin Bevan University Health Board is striving to work differently, with the introduction of an innovative nurse practitioner-led virtual inpatient (VIP) surgical service. VIP is designed to manage emergency patients safely, effectively and in a timely manner, enabling them to return home while waiting for investigations. This article describes the service and outlines the main outcomes, which include increasing the number of surgical emergency patients managed as VIPs, shortening VIP stays, providing more timely access to investigations and saving money for the health board...

Many healthcare, social care and voluntary agency employees are carers at work and at home, a phenomenon referred to as double-duty caregiving. Using meta-ethnography, this article provides a synthesis of qualitative research by analysing the original words of the interviewees. A linguistic and metaphoric overview provides a deeper, richer picture of the experience of double-duty caring, revealing the sacrifices associated with being a carer at home while employed in a healthcare system, and the paradoxical effects of holding a position in both worlds simultaneously...

This paper outlines why experienced supervisors at a London healthcare provider received skills training so they could offer safeguarding supervision to front-line colleagues with case management responsibilities for vulnerable children and young people. It examines how supervisors use the main functions of supervision and a cycle of reflection in clinical practice with supervisees. As well as the professional issues encountered by supervisors in relation to the benefits, the challenges of providing supervision and the action required to make safeguarding supervision a part of the organisational culture are also explored...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality and value of web-based information on advance directives. Internet-based information on advance directives was selected because, if it is inaccurate or difficult to understand, patients risk making decisions about their care that may not be followed in practice. METHOD: Two validated health information evaluation tools, the Suitability Assessment of Materials and DISCERN, and a focus group were used to assess credibility, user orientation and effectiveness...

Managing sickness and absenteeism in the workplace is challenging, and nurse managers must consider their various causes so they can implement effective management strategies. It is also vital to consider the factors that influence absenteeism and turnover among newly graduated registered nurses (RNs), whose retention can help to address staff shortages. This article describes a literature review that aimed to identify the potential causes of sickness absence in newly graduated RNs. It also discusses strategies that nurse managers can use to retain and maintain their workforce...

There are several interlocking elements integral to the delivery of safe patient care, including clinical governance, efficient communication, teamwork, risk assessment, inter-professional education and effective leadership. Each element can be challenging to understand, develop, or act on, but it is essential that nurses use these as opportunities to ensure their specialty or service delivers safe and high-quality care. This article discusses each of these elements and its relationship to quality patient care, with specific reference to the role of children's nurses...

METHOD: Data were collected using deep and semi-structured interviews with 20 Iranian nurses in 2015. Analysis was based on constant comparative analysis. RESULTS: Ethical leaders strengthen ethical decision-making by promoting ethical commitment, developing an ethical atmosphere and guiding ethical decision-making...

In 2012, the Department of Health published Compassion in Practice, which included six areas for action. Action area four suggests that ward managers and leaders should be supervisory, and not included in ward staff numbers. The recommendation has recently been changed to promote black and minority ethnic (BME) leadership in the NHS. This article examines the literature on supervisory nurse leader roles between 2007 and 2017 to identify what, if any, progress has been made. Although supervisory status can improve care at ward level, and was endorsed by the Francis Report, it seems that few care providers in England have invested in this, possibly because it is voluntary, rather than a statutory requirement...

The introduction in 2016 of the Nursing and Midwifery Council revalidation process, which involves several standardised steps, has represented a major change for UK nurses and midwives, and is now a compulsory requirement of reregistration. This article presents preliminary results of a survey about revalidation, undertaken in June 2016 at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, Dartford, focusing on how nurses and midwives feel about the process. The article considers the effect of different variables, including pay band, seniority and directorate, on nurses' and midwives' perceptions of revalidation, and suggests it is regarded more positively by senior, more experienced staff than by those who are less experienced...

There is much to like in Scotland's Nursing 2030 Vision, but its success will depend on its implementation. As the name suggests, the document, published in July, sets out a strategy for what nursing in Scotland should look like in 2030. It considers what is done well and what should change, and how to deal with future demands, such as the ageing population and workforce.

The new nursing associate role will sit alongside those of other healthcare support workers, including registered nurses, in the delivery of hands-on patient care. A second wave of around 2,000 nursing associates is being trained by providers across England, and Health Education England has filmed videos of trainees explaining their aspirations and their experience of training so far.

It is often said that no two days in nursing are the same. This means staff nurses and nurse managers understand how to work with unknowns. Nurses often make the best of any situation, calmly delivering measured care while advocating for what they know to be the best for their patients and staff.
