Literature shows that successful transition of newly graduate nurses to professional nurses is imperative but does not always take place, resulting in difficulty in performance, cognizance or behaviour of a role as a nurse, affecting the quality of patient care negatively. No integrative literature review could be found to summarize available guidelines facilitating transition of final year nursing students to professional nurses. An extensive search of the literature by means of an integrative literature review was conducted in 2014 and updated in June 2017, following a five-step process...

Clinical placements are specifically designed to facilitate authentic learning opportunities and are an integral component of undergraduate nursing programs. However, as academics and clinicians frequently point out, clinical placements are fraught with problems that are long-standing and multidimensional in nature. Collaborative placement models, grounded in a tripartite relationship between students, university staff and clinical partners, and designed to foster students' sense of belonging, have recently been implemented to address many of the challenges associated with clinical placements...

Nursing clinical learning environments are particularly important for the achievement of good practice in clinical training of student nurses, and thus, for the nursing competence development. Hence, it is important to have an instrument consisting of reliable and valid criteria for assessing the clinical learning environment, applicable in different contexts, and translated in the respondents mother tongue. The goal of the present research was to test the reliability and validity of the Slovenian version of the "Clinical Learning Environment, Supervision and Nurse Teacher evaluation scale", and to compare it with the Croatian version...

When a midwifery diploma-level programme was introduced in 2010 in Bangladesh, only a few nursing faculty staff members had received midwifery diploma-level. The consequences were an inconsistency in interpretation and implementation of the midwifery curriculum in the midwifery programme. To ensure that midwifery faculty staff members were adequately prepared to deliver the national midwifery curriculum, a mentorship programme was developed. The aim of this study was to examine feasibility and adherence to a mentorship programme among 19 midwifery faculty staff members who were lecturing the three years midwifery diploma-level programme at ten institutes/colleges in Bangladesh...

Like any skill in nursing, preparing students for the changes in technology needs to be incorporated into the curriculum. Electronic Patient Records (EPR) are an example of technological innovation in health care. This article presents a case study of how one faculty of healthcare, working collaboratively with a web designer, created and implemented a simulation activity to enable student nurses to develop their skills in using EPRs. An evaluation study was undertaken into students' perceptions of undertaking the simulation activity and using EPRs in the simulation activity...

To the population nursing and caring are synonymous. Empathy and using therapeutic relationships are ways that nurses can utilise care and compassion in their practice. However health care delivery needs to be led by evidence and one way to ensure evidence-based care is delivered compassionately and with empathy is to utilise the principles of nursing therapeutics. Nursing therapeutics allows a nurse to understand how care should be delivered as well as why. This discussion paper explores the use of therapeutic relationship building, nursing therapeutics and compassionate nursing and how neophyte student nurses can be introduced into these concepts during their first practice exposure...

Academic settings are seen to be an ideal, although potentially privileged, environments in which to demonstrate meaningful and authentic involvement. Despite the lack of evaluation and evidence relating to the impact of involvement being noted in the early 2000's, there continues to be a lack of evaluative research in this area (Happell et al., 2014) with the examination of the carers perspective being even more limited. This paper presents qualitative findings emerging from an Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) carried out on transcripts from five individual semi-structured interviews with family carers who contribute to the Bachelor of Nursing (Mental Health) programme at Edinburgh Napier University...

Because of globalization and growing immigrant populations, nursing students need to possess a high level of cultural competence to provide nursing care to patients from various cultural backgrounds. However, it has been reported that the current cultural education in nursing curriculums is not sufficient to improve students' cultural competence. Little is known about how nursing students' personal experiences of other cultures may impact their cultural competence. This study was conducted to identify the ways in which cultural education and personal experiences with other cultures affect nursing students' cultural competence...
