Unsuccessful nursing students have a great impact on nursing programs. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships among preadmission HESI A2 (Health Education Systems, Incorporated Admission Assessment) score, science and math course grades, program completion, and NCLEX-RN success in an associate degree nursing program using a retrospective, correlational research design. A statistically significant relationship was found between preadmission examination scores and successful NCLEX-RN passage on first attempt...

Nursing duties are often sensitive in nature and may contribute to feelings of inadequacy for students, especially when providing postpartum care. Our study assessed confidence levels among 61 junior baccalaureate nursing students before and after a simulation workshop with a follow-up survey administered after completion of two full clinical days on a postpartum unit. The four-hour simulation included stations for breast, fundus, and lochia exam skills. Overall confidence and confidence in performing patient assessments were significantly increased at postsimulation and follow-up (p < ...

To meet Healthy People 2020 goals, health literacy must be included in health care program curricula. In a fully online graduate nursing course, an innovative service-learning activity asked students to collaborate in the creation of low-literacy patient education pamphlets for practice partners at a community rehabilitation facility. Involvement with community stakeholders such as support groups and interprofessional team members enhanced interdisciplinary educational outcomes. Through this innovative project-based activity, students were able to meet the clinical education and decision support needs of rehabilitation patients while translating academic coursework to support actual community needs...

Alternative testing methods are gaining popularity as an innovative means of assessing learning and retention of knowledge. Collaborative testing, an alternative to traditional testing, fosters interaction and collaboration among students. This article describes the use of collaborative testing using quizzes in an accelerated second-degree baccalaureate nursing program in order to enhance learning and retention of course content. Feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive, and most believed this strategy provided a structured method to their studying and acquisition of course concepts, which was particularly beneficial within an accelerated course format...

The organizational structure for the Master of Science in Nursing's online program at Sacred Heart University offers a remarkably different innovative faculty model. Full-time, doctorally prepared faculty reside in several different states and teach online but are fully integrated and immersed in all aspects of the college of nursing. This untraditional model, which has proven to be successful over time using best practices for online education, is replicable and offers an innovative option for online learning...

Honors programs in nursing can facilitate the professional development of high-achieving students, supporting their lifelong engagement in nursing practice, education, research, and health care policy issues. Strong mentoring relationships are commonly identified as essential to the success of nursing honors programs, but literature on mentoring relationships in an honors context is limited. The purpose of this study was to gain insight into faculty and student expectations for mentorship. Faculty and students shared similar expectations for both the mentor and mentee, highlighting key themes of engagement, facilitation, accountability, and collaboration as necessary for the success of an undergraduate nursing honors program...

In an effort to meet the changing landscape of the health care system and the explosion of nursing knowledge, the Institute of Medicine and the Robert Wood Johnston Foundation have summoned nursing academia to partner on curriculum development with an emphasis on the professional socialization of the new nurse. As health care continues to change, the education of nurses must also evolve to meet these changes. Curriculum transformation is needed at nearly every aspect of health care. This policy statement will explore these challenges and the transformation in nursing education required to meet them...

Fidelindo Lim, Matthew John Marsaglia
Reports have indicated that nursing programs in the United States are not generally effective in teaching nursing science, natural science, the social sciences, and the humanities. The value of the lifelong study of humanities for nurses is the invitation for contemplation on the human experience so we can make informed moral, spiritual, and intellectual sense of the world. In essence, when we understand, we become more empathetic. This article adds to the call for teaching for a sense of salience in nursing through the meaningful synthesis of humanities in baccalaureate education...

With the publication of Healthy People 2020, health disparities have been redefined to expand concepts beyond traditional racial and ethnic minorities and include a broader range of populations. Veterans, with their unique experiences and values, comprise a distinct culture with health risks and potential disparities. Although accrediting agencies require programs of nursing to teach culturally competent care, it is unknown whether nurse faculty recognize veterans as having a culture distinct from the rest of the population...

Outcome assessment has become standard in institutions of higher learning and is a requirement of State Boards of Nursing and major accrediting bodies, including all accrediting agencies for programs in nursing. Appropriate identification of student learning outcomes and program outcomes to ensure the collection of relevant and meaningful data is essential. Although much has been written about what should be included in assessment, little information exists on how to best collect the required data for evaluation...

Given the recent calls for transformation of nursing education, it is critical that faculty be reflective educators. Reflective teaching practice is a process of self-examination and self-evaluation to gain insight into teaching to improve the teaching-learning experience. Limited attention has been given to this notion in the nursing education literature. An innovative reflective teaching practice approach for nursing education is proposed, consisting of question cues, journaling, and a process of facilitated meetings...

Graduate student attitudes (n = 28) were assessed before and after participation in interprofessional practitioner education (IPE). Twenty-eight graduate students participated (14 mental health nursing, 6 pharmacy, 4 nutrition, 4 exercise physiology); most had at least some health care experience. Posttest scores indicated gains on a majority of constructs measured. These results suggest that online-blended IPE content yields gains in team skills and attitudes. This study adds to a very small body of literature on IPE in graduate programs...
