The use of physical restraint exposes patients and staff to negative effects, including death. Therefore, teaching nursing staff to develop the improve knowledge, skills, and attitudes regarding physical restraint has become necessary. A quasi-experimental pre-post design was used to evaluate the effect of educational intervention on nurses' knowledge, attitude, intention, practice and incidence rate of physical restraint in 12 wards of a hospital using a self-reported questionnaire and a restraint order form in Malaysia...

Clinical nursing leadership is critical for quality care. All nurses including students should receive clinical nursing leadership education. Research pertaining to educational strategies on clinical leadership for nursing students remains sparse. The aim of this paper is to report the qualitative evaluation of a co-constructed educational intervention on clinical nursing leadership, developed for 1st year preregistration nursing students. The research question was "what are the components of an educational intervention that support the development of clinical nursing leadership in 1st year nursing students?"...

Suicide prevention training recommended as part of national suicidal strategies across the UK has contributed to a reduction in suicide. Previous studies have found suicide prevention training changes attitude and increases confidence in ability to utilise suicide prevention strategies. There is limited evidence relating to the different responses to suicide prevention training by females and males. As the majority of nurses are female it is important to know if they report the same increases in confidence after suicide prevention training...

International policy mandates that mental health consumers and carers are involved in the continuing professional development of nurses. However, within the literature, continuing professional development of mental health nurses continues to be delivered in didactic formats, with few examples of mental health nurses and consumers engaging together in the process. Consumers and carers are often excluded from professional development programs because of structural discrimination. Where they are included, it is often through storytelling that has been sanitised of challenging practice issues...

Involving and supporting the family members and caregivers of people with mental illness is essential to high-quality mental health services. However, literature suggests that there is a lack of engagement between family members and mental health nurses (MHNs). Lack of knowledge among MHNs is often cited as one of the main reasons for this lack of engagement. The aim of this review was to explore the knowledge, skills and attitudes that are required by MHNs to enable to them to work more effectively with families affected by mental illness...

Simulations have become a common educational tool among nursing students; however, the impact of clinical simulations as tested using an experimental design is not yet well established. In a controlled intervention study, nursing students received either traditional classroom lessons (C) or traditional classroom lessons combined with simulation-based lessons at the hospital (I). The primary outcome variable was the basic knowledge of acute nursing measured by a multiple-choice questionnaire. Secondary outcome variables were grade point average, the students' perception of the learning process, and self-efficacy...

Preceptors play key roles in nursing students' socialization or formation, and transition from academia to practice. Students still struggle with this transition. Viewing student socialization to nursing as enculturation has provided valuable insights into faculty perceptions of this process. This focused ethnography explored preceptors' perceptions about nursing's culture and their role in bringing students into that culture. Data included semi-structured interviews with preceptor participants from three hospitals in two cities in a single Midwestern state...

BACKGROUND: Community services work with vulnerable families to assist them to link with health, education and welfare services. Community placements provide nursing students with understandings of the health impacts of social circumstances on broad population's. Nurses provide health care for vulnerable populations so it is important for students to gain experience in dealing with various population groups in a variety of settings. Community placements can increase student confidence to provide care for all people in the acute care setting...

During a three-year study, 32% (n = 67) in 2015, 16% (n = 44) in 2016 and 55% (n = 161) of students in 2017 expressed an interest in using digital badges to enhance their learning. But who are these students? This paper explores the features of students who are interested in using digital badges as a motivational reward to prepare for weekly face-to-face classes through engaging with online activities and resources. This paper uses a first-year undergraduate Bachelor of Nursing bioscience topic at an Australian university to report nursing students' interests around playing games, their digital badge history during the topic, and their self-reported attitudinal interest in using digital badges to enhance and personalise their learning...

BACKGROUND: Teaching has long been recognised as an important role for nurses. In addition, much has also been written about new graduates' transitions to professional practice. However, the role of new graduates in teaching is unclear, and at what point they are required to teach others as part of their practice. OBJECTIVES: To explore the teaching activities undertaken by new nursing graduates, and their readiness for this role following a semester-long education subject in their undergraduate degrees...

Professional, financial and ethical reasons necessitate nursing improves its understanding of student attrition. Previous studies identify causes of attrition as multifactorial. However, few studies focus on children's nursing. This study aimed to explore causes of pre-registration children's nursing attrition. Exploring the causes of attrition was achieved through quantitative and qualitative approaches. Three years of quantitative data relating to attrition rates and causes was obtained. These data informed semi-structured interviews of children's nursing students, from four London universities...

Student healthcare providers are the type of primary healthcare professionals who usually have first contact with young women who have problems with intimacy, such as vulvar pain - known as vulvodynia. However, a need to increase healthcare professionals' level of knowledge of vulvodynia and its care has been identified. This study aimed to assess the awareness and knowledge of vulvodynia and its care among student healthcare providers, before and after Web-based education. The study design was national, descriptive and quasi-experimental, and was conducted across Finland...

Current international research suggests universities providing nursing education should focus on shifting students' attitudes towards valuing clinical learning derived from aged care settings, offering support and education for aged care facility staff supervising nursing students' learning in the aged care setting, and encouraging nursing graduates to consider pursuing careers in gerontology nursing. Against this international backdrop, one Australian School of Nursing designed a structured clinical learning experience to offer final year nursing students an opportunity to further their knowledge and understanding of the complexities of the role of the gerontology registered nurse...

Problem-based learning (PBL) is an effective and highly efficient teaching approach that is extensively applied in education systems across a variety of countries. This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of web-based PBL teaching pedagogies in large classes. The cluster sampling method was used to separate two college-level nursing student classes (graduating class of 2013) into two groups. The experimental group (n = 162) was taught using a web-based PBL teaching approach, while the control group (n = 166) was taught using conventional teaching methods...

In the present study, reflective seminars were integrated during a three-year nursing programme in Sweden. The specific characteristics of the reflective seminars are built upon a foundation in lifeworld theory and caring science. As teaching in higher education demands an academic degree but not necessarily formal pedagogical education, lecturers involved in reflective seminars are often left without guidance concerning what constitutes a reflective learning activity in nursing education. The aim of the present study is to describe the lived experience of guiding reflective seminars during nursing education from the lecturers' perspective...

Undergraduate nursing programs typically include students with limited 'on-campus' time who need learning resources that are flexible, technologically appropriate, remotely-accessible (mobile smart devices), and above all, engaging. This has presented academics with challenges surrounding institutional security firewalls, password-access requirements, intellectual property/ownership and staff/student privacy. To overcome these challenges a collection of evidence-based YouTube videos, posted on the Biological Sciences YouTube Channel, supported by the Biosciences in Nurse Education, and underpinned by Benner's pedagogical framework, were developed with the intention of moving students from novice to competent clinical bioscience users...

Rural practice presents unique challenges and skill requirements for midwives. New Zealand and Scotland face similar challenges in sustaining a rural midwifery workforce. This paper draws from an international multi-centre study exploring rural midwifery to focus on the education needs of student midwives within pre-registration midwifery programmes in order to determine appropriate preparation for rural practice. The mixed-methods study was conducted with 222 midwives working in rural areas in New Zealand (n = 145) and Scotland (n = 77)...

Within the last decade, there has been significant change in the way tertiary midwifery education has been delivered to students. The use of blended teaching methods and the introduction of simulated learning experiences has been observed in the literature to improve students' self-confidence, competence, clinical judgement and decision-making abilities. Simulation is seen to be particularly important when practising skills that may be infrequently encountered in practice, such as clinical emergencies. Neonatal resuscitation is the most common neonatal emergency encountered within midwifery today, with up to 15% of babies requiring some form of resuscitation at birth...
