Considered the norm in multiple academic settings, simulation provided a low-risk, transformational clinical learning environment across programs at a college of nursing. Undergraduate nursing students received feedback from practicing nurses, whereas graduate nursing students honed skills in evaluative feedback and communication. This intraprofessional learning opportunity cultivated a rich learning environment. Feedback revealed that the learning milieu was permeated with opportunities needed for skills, competencies, and leadership development...

The author proposes the use of a collaborative approach to prepare nursing students to implement relationship-based care through the use of a dedicated education unit. This collaboration would use the phases of relationship-based care, Benner's novice-to-expert stages, and the semesters of the typical upper division nursing curriculum. The ways in which relationship-based care can enhance the learning process for nursing students are discussed.

A standardized rubric for writing assessment can improve concordance in expectations across a nurse educator community; however, standardization may also pose a perceived threat to faculty academic freedom. To improve assessment consistency while retaining academic freedom, an innovative rubric system that offers a compromise is proposed; it includes both standardized objective areas of assessment as well as areas of assessment for individualized instructor determination. In creating a hybrid standardized rubric, a community of nurse educators can retain academic freedom while better serving students with consistent expectations for writing skills...

Current nursing students are more technologically adept than past generations; they are accustomed to using technology in their everyday life. Proficiency in technology is a major asset, and as such, nursing education should provide for opportunities with technology that will support future practice. This article reports on a group project effectively used to capitalize on this skill while encouraging active engagement in learning about health promotion. Student groups created a social marketing campaign consisting of a summary of their campaign, one infogram, and one 30-second video focused on a topic area from Healthy People 2020...

In recent years, online graduate nursing programs throughout the United States have seen unprecedented growth that has resulted in a greater need for adjunct faculty who can adequately teach in an online format. Frequently, adjunct faculty are not prepared to teach online as they are not offered the necessary continued support in their roles. Through the development of an onboarding program, barriers for teaching online were eliminated. The program is supported by a faculty learning community and continuous professional development workshops...

This pilot study compared the implementation of the innovative dedicated education unit (DEU) clinical model on quality of care with the traditional clinical model using missed nursing care as a quality indicator. A university and academic medical center partnered to conduct this quasiexperimental study, which is the first to use missed nursing care as a quality indicator when assessing transition to the DEU model. Evidence suggests that quality of care was maintained during DEU implementation.

Clinical simulation in nursing has become increasingly valuable in helping students learn tasks and assessments in a nonthreatening environment. Evaluating student assessments can promote collegiality among faculty. This article focuses on three tips for faculty used by one university to objectively capture a clinical snapshot in a cost-effective manner: 1) write one's own scenarios, 2) create assessment forms using Word, and 3) employ bar scanning with quick response code readers.
