Tonya Schneidereith
In health care, efforts have been aimed at reducing medication errors rates; yet, medication errors continue to affect approximately 5% of hospitalized patients. In health care education, simulation provides nursing students a safe opportunity for hands-on medication administration, often including dosage calculation. However, the safety checks associated with medication administration-including the Five Rights-are frequently overlooked. Although the efforts aimed toward increasing medication safety include external factors (such as environmental measures and electronic resources), recent observations in simulation suggest a different problem...

New nurse turnover costs organizations in the United States an estimated $1.4 billion to $2.9 billion per year (Meyer, Shatto, Delicath, & von der Lancken, 2017; Ulrich et al., 2010). Retention of graduate nurses can decrease costs, combat nursing shortages, and improve patient outcomes. Despite the increase in prevalence of nurse residency programs, new nurses are leaving their first positions at alarming rates. The purpose of this literature review is to examine the factors that affect graduate nurse transition to practice...

The continuous and rapid evolution of medical technology and the complexity of delivering person-centered care in the 21st century calls for collaboration among health care professionals. Global health now "involves many disciplines within and beyond the health sciences and promotes interdisciplinary collaboration; and is a synthesis of population-based prevention with individual-clinical care" (Koplan et al., 2009, p. 1995). The need for mental health practitioners to work in interprofessional contexts requires graduate and postgraduate programs to incorporate interprofessional education into their student training...

Incivility in nursing is a pervasive and evasive problem that many nurses do not easily recognize or may simply shrug off as "normal." However, incivility produces a hostile work environment and can jeopardize safety. A study was conducted to (a) determine nurses' ability to recognize incivility in nursing after an online educational intervention on incivility, (b) ascertain the effectiveness of online education toward assisting nurses with understanding how to ward off this behavior, and (c) determine the types and effects of incivility participants experienced...

How does challenging authority look? This article describes two steps taken to prepare for and engage in challenges to existing laws. The first step is use of the nursing process to help structure deliberations about when to pursue, justify, and target a challenge to existing law to create desired outcomes. The second step is the important process of building the case for change and the broad base of support needed to push against resistance to change. The article details two examples of specific legislative successes the author accomplished using these two steps...

Cancer somehow lends itself to military analogies, perhaps because of its status as a threat to life itself. We've declared war on cancer over several decades, viewing cancer as a cell going rogue, dividing uncontrollably, and ultimately breaking through local boundaries to spread. Less well known, but critically relevant to the health care impact of questioning authority, is the war within the breast cancer management community, among those studying molecular and cellular targets in breast cancer biology and those managing the human targets that represent cancer's toll...

Ahtisham Younas, Sobia Parveen
This article presents an evaluation of Margaret Newman's theory of health as expanding consciousness, through a literature review, to determine its usefulness for nursing practice and research. The evaluation illustrates that Newman's theory is valuable for guiding various aspects of nursing practice, education, and research. However, its use had been limited to spiritual, psychological, and social aspects of nursing care and needs to be further evaluated for its significance in acute care settings. Most of the studies that use Newman's theory are from the past, with limited studies conducted in recent years, indicating the need for further research...

Breastfeeding, a health behavior that provides well-known benefits for mothers, infants, and children, is an essential strategy to improve public health. Breastfeeding can reduce the incidence of infant illness and death and provides both short- and longterm physiological benefits to mothers. National and international government agencies and grassroots organizations supporting breastfeeding include the World Health Organization, the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the La Leche League...

Medical errors because of communication failure are common in health care settings. Teamwork training, such as Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS), improves team performance and patient outcomes. Academic institutions seek high-quality, low-cost curricula for interprofessional education (IPE) to prepare learners for clinical experiences before and after graduation; however, most IPE curricula involve lectures, simple tabletop exercises, and in-person simulations and are not readily accessible to geographically distributed and asynchronously engaged learners...

This project implemented first-time simulation with nursing and social work students. Students participated in a contextual learning experience through a patient simulation of interprofessional practice as a health care team member and reflection through debriefing and open response comments. Simulation offers a means to practice interprofessional collaboration prior to entering practice. Participants reported an increased understanding of the scope of practice of other team members through their reflections following simulation...

As a newly appointed clinical skills technician, my understanding of the merits of simulation as a learning tool was limited. When given the opportunity to participate in a simulation created for final year nursing students, I was surprised by the intensity and realism of the experience. This reflective piece describes my perspective as a nonclinician, viewing students perform in a simulated emergency simulation. I describe the impact this had on me personally and the appreciation I now have for nursing students and the importance of my role in supporting their learning...

Nursing is a profession that affords many avenues in which to practice. Nurses who are married to military service members have unique challenges as they progress through their careers. A military spouse shares a personal perspective of challenges and insight on how to overcome and persevere that may be relevant to others within the greater nursing community.

Health care is increasingly complex, as nurses navigate working in teams and conveying critical information to others. Clear communication and accuracy are critical for nurses because they communicate to patients and other members of the health care team. Art, and more specifically, Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), are ways for nurses to practice communication and clear articulation of ideas. VTS also allows nurses to explore finding their voices and working with others to provide safe and effective communication among the team, including patients and their families...

The current professional nursing workforce in the United States is predominantly White and female, even though minorities compose 33% of the national population (Travers, Smaldone, & Cohn, 2015). Minority patients are more effectively cared for when their particular cultural milieu is taken into consideration as part of their health care plan (Sullivan, 2004). According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), health care quality remains suboptimal for diverse populations in the United States because some individuals do not receive quality care or do not believe their values are honored or respected (AHRQ, 2016)...

Individuals experiencing homelessness face significant challenges on a daily basis. The ongoing need to find shelter, safety, and food becomes a priority and often supersedes the need for health care. People who are homeless have significantly higher morbidity and mortality rates than those who are sheltered, at least in part because care is sought when health care issues become acute and more difficult to manage from a medical standpoint. Most acute care for this population is provided in the emergency department, which is more expensive and more fragmented than regular care provided by a primary provider...

Historically, the majority of nurses have been employed by hospitals. However, the changing landscape of health care has seen a shift to other areas of practice. Nursing graduates must be prepared to work collaboratively with a shared vision that is patientcentered and team-oriented. To better prepare students for collaborative practice, a School of Nursing developed a course for senior level nursing students that included a clinical experience within a student-run free clinic. Nursing students were able to enhance clinic services by providing health screening, patient navigation, patient education, health coaching, and patient follow-up...
