The purpose of this study was to determine whether student performance in a simulation varied according to which grading method was used: pass/fail versus numerical grading with calculation into a course grade. Results showed that student performances were not significantly different when the pass/fail graded group was compared to the numerically graded group, even though students knew which grading schema would be used in their evaluation. The study challenges the opinion that students perform better when they know that they will be numerically graded in simulation...

Test anxiety may cause nursing students to cope poorly with academic demands, affecting academic performance and attrition and leading to possible failure on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN®). Test-anxious nursing students may engage academic procrastination as a coping mechanism. The Test Anxiety Inventory and the Procrastination Assessment Scale for Students were administered to 202 prelicensure nursing students from diploma, associate, and baccalaureate nursing programs in southwestern Pennsylvania...

Although baccalaureate nursing programs often teach evidence-based practice (EBP), the effectiveness of targeted education to facilitate progressive EBP knowledge development is unclear. Rigorous, objective evaluation is vital for faculty to determine if students' EBP knowledge is advancing, stagnating, or declining as they progress toward program completion. In a study across multiple campuses of one traditional baccalaureate nursing program, EBP knowledge significantly improved between sophomore and junior levels, but not between junior and senior levels...

AIM: The purpose of this study was to identify students at risk of attrition and implement interventions to decrease the risk. BACKGROUND: The ability to identify and intervene with students deemed at risk of attrition can be a valuable tool for increasing the RN workforce. "Statewide At-Risk Tracking and Interventions for Nurses" (SATIN) involved students from 27 initial RN licensure nursing programs in Texas. METHOD: At-risk status of each nursing student was identified, and each nursing program provided interventions based on students' needs...

AIM: The aim of the study was to explore the use of universal design for instruction (UDI) in nursing education. BACKGROUND: Educators seek to employ innovative pedagogies accessible to diverse learners across learning environments. UDI, an inclusive strategy for meeting this goal is not well known in nursing education. METHOD: An integrative review was used to meet the study's aim. Five databases were searched for literature published between 2000 and 2013...

This study investigated how perceptions of agentic and communal values attract students to major in and persist in nursing. Participants reported a potential major and why they were attracted to that major. Transcripts were coded for declaration and graduating with a nursing major. Results showed that students who reported being attracted to a major for communal and agentic reasons were more likely to report nursing as a potential major, declare nursing as a major, and graduate with a nursing degree. Departments are encouraged to recruit students by highlighting the communal and agentic values that nursing affords...

AIM: As educators strongly influence the attitudes of their students, the purpose of this study was to determine nurse educator attitudes toward people with disabilities. BACKGROUND: Inadequate education of health professionals is a known barrier to care for people with disability. Continuing calls for improved education of health professionals compel an assessment of nurse educator attitudes. METHOD: This was a cross-sectional, correlational web-based survey of nurse educators (n = 126)...

Nursing education needs innovative and effective teaching models that are easily conveyed and economical. Dweck's mindset model harnesses the predictive power of noncognitive factors such as motivation, perseverance, effort, and academic tenacity to shape the learner's perceptions of intelligence for competency development. All individuals possess perceptions of intelligence; however, the mindset model demonstrates the immense potential associated with endorsement of the growth mindset and student success.

This article describes an innovative approach to patient teaching using standardized patients, humor, and therapeutic communication. The strategy was designed for baccalaureate students enrolled in a fundamentals nursing course. Students, divided into small groups, were assigned a patient education topic to provide to the standardized patient. Student and faculty feedback indicated positive responses to this instructional strategy. Utilization of this learner-centered teaching environment to promote therapeutic communication during a complex patient-teaching scenario was found to be beneficial for novice nursing students...

This research brief explores the relationship between introversion and extroversion communication styles and gender in nursing students. Although communication is integral for delivering safe patient care, teaching about individual communication styles is rare in nursing curricula. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was administered to 47 nursing students. Chi-square was used to analyze relationships between introversion/extroversion and gender. The data reported no significance relationships between introverts and extroverts and gender...

We describe an innovative practice in advancing careers of academic nurse educators: demonstrating scholarly productivity from program grants. Scholarly productivity is often narrowly defined, especially in research-intensive institutions. The expectation may be a career trajectory based on the traditional scholarship of discovery. However, nurse educators, especially at the associate and full professor ranks, are often involved in leadership activities that include writing and managing program grants. We encourage the academy to value and support the development of program grants that include significant scholarly components, and we offer exemplars of associate and full professor scholarship derived from these projects...

Nurse educators have had no clear evidence-based method to evaluate student competency related to professional values. This article describes a comparative analysis in which the list of professional values identified in a research study of undergraduate prelicensure nursing student assignments was compared with a list identified in an integrative review of nursing literature. Comparative analysis allowed for a categorization of professional values that were either congruent between student assignments and literature, exclusively evident in literature, or exclusively evident in student assignments...

An overwhelming majority of hospitalized patients undergo intravenous (IV) catheter insertion in order to receive hydration and necessary medication. Current IV insertion training techniques include manikins that are unable to react or give feedback to the trainee. The Avstick® is a realistic training device that can be worn by an actor, allowing a nurse trainee to perform an IV catheter insertion on a live patient without causing the person harm. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Avstick in nursing education to increase nurse-patient communication and trainee self-efficacy...

AIM: This retrospective analysis examined first-time unsuccessful attempts on the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) examination from September 2005 through September 2011 (n = 390). BACKGROUND: There are few studies examining certification within the academic nurse educator role. There is also a lack of evidence to assist nurse educators in understanding those factors that best support success on the CNE exam. METHOD: Nonexperimental, descriptive, retrospective correlational design using chi-square test of independence and factorial analyses of variance...
