Healthcare environments have increased in complexity over the last 30 years. However, educational methods to prepare nurses have remained virtually unchanged. To prepare nurses to practice in today's complex practice environment, there are calls for change and transformation in how nursing education is implemented. This transformation requires nurse educators to shift their epistemic beliefs about teaching and learning by considering theories that promote effective learning. An innovative method being used in nursing education is the Flipped Classroom Method (FCM)...

Achieving adequate bioscience learning and assessment in pre registration nursing programs has been problematic for many decades. This has been discussed extensively in national and international health care literature. Despite this, the quantity and quality of bioscience content appears currently in many UK registered nursing programs, to be in a period of decline. Sub optimal bioscience knowledge of registered nurses has been consistently correlated with avoidable morbidity and mortality. An increasing evidence base indicates that a higher level of educated registered nurse, leads to improved health outcomes...

The Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework has the potential to contribute to online education by addressing the nexus of pedagogy, technology, and learners' needs. However, there has been limited investigation of the application of CoI to Australian online tertiary education, with the awareness of CoI amongst Australian nurse educators being unknown. This paper reports on a project which used an online survey to investigate the level of awareness of the CoI framework and its applicability to the design of online and blended courses in Australian higher education nursing schools...

For a progressively diverse student cohort whose members learn in a multiplicity of ways based on individuals' educational experiences, cognitive profiles and academic capabilities, medical (human and veterinary) studies may prove increasingly challenging. Traditional 'one size fits all' methods of instruction may no longer be appropriate nor allow students to reach their personal academic potential. More individually tailored approaches might prove more successful. Using ten case study 'vignettes', the author draws on experience of offering specialist study skills support to human and veterinary medical Higher Education students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs), such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD, to illustrate how even very simple multisensory approaches, introduced within a one-to-one tutorial environment, can overcome learning barriers...

In nursing literature, the phrase 'theory-practice gap' is widely used without common definition or description of its underlying concept. This review paper presents a concept analysis using Rodgers (2000) evolutionary process to define and clarify the concept of the theory-practice gap as part of a doctoral study. In so doing it provides a deeper understanding of the concept to enable its consistent application within nurse education. A theoretical definition is developed, the data search that was undertaken is described and a discussion of the attributes, antecedents and consequences is provided...

Rising numbers of students are required to address the forecast nursing shortage. Health services are challenged to release experienced nursing staff to become supervisors in clinical supervision models and preceptorship models require significant investment in registered nurse education for effectiveness. One health service in southeast Queensland, Australia, developed an innovative clinical education model that draws upon the strengths of supervision and preceptor models, and is consistent with the Dedicated Education Unit model, without the dedicated university and prescribed attendance requirements...

Pregnant women tend to exercise less than women who have not yet been pregnant. In the present study, which involves two studies, we aimed to construct an effective, individualized exercise counseling model for pregnant women. In study 1, a three-round session that involved 10 multidisciplinary health care experts reached a consensus via the Delphi method. In the preliminary study, two healthy pregnant women were recruited from the prenatal outpatient departments of hospitals in Taipei, Taiwan. Both of them were 32 years old and primipara...

The Dedicated Education Unit clinical teaching model is a strategy designed to create optimal teaching and learning environments. Evidence is lacking regarding the influence of the Dedicated Education Unit model on students' specific nursing competencies and professional attributes. This descriptive, comparative study took place in a private baccalaureate nursing program in the United States. The researchers compared evaluations of student competencies and attributes who participated in a Dedicated Education Unit model (n = 163) to students who participated in a traditional clinical teaching model (n = 147) immediately following the practicum in which the Dedicated Education Unit model was used...

Ageism and negative attitudes are said to be institutionally embedded in healthcare during a time when there are unprecedented increases in older population numbers. As nurses' care for older people in a range of environments it is important to examine attitudes and perceptions of undergraduate nurses towards older people. A longitudinal mixed methods study in conjunction with a three-year undergraduate UK nursing programme 2009-2012 was conducted with 310 undergraduate nurses. A questionnaire incorporating Kogan's attitude towards older people scale and a drawing of a person aged 75 years was completed three times, once each year...
