Research demonstrates that basic nursing care receives less attention in clinical settings and has become visually less prominent in nursing education curriculums. While much is known about the importance of preceptorship in clinical settings, little is known about how preceptors teach basic nursing care to students in a school simulation lab. This study explores the preceptors' perceptions of teaching basic nursing care to nursing students in the school simulation lab compared to clinical settings. Data were collected through focus group interviews and participant observation and analyzed by using qualitative content analysis...

The nursing profession needs leaders from across the temperament continuum. Educational environments are conducive to extroverts' learning but can have detrimental outcomes for introverted students. Introverted nurses avoid leadership positions because they have been taught extroversion traits are needed. This study explores perceptions of seven RN-BSN students who work as nurses and self-identify as introverts. Interviews with participants were conducted to ascertain perceptions of their educational experiences including preparation for leadership positions...

Clinical reasoning is the cognitive process that nurses use to gather and incorporate information into a larger bank of personal knowledge. This incorporated information guides therapeutic actions, and helps determine client care. Since the process guides therapeutic actions regarding client care, failure to use the process effectively leads to poor clinical decision-making, inappropriate actions, or inaction. Because of the criticality of this process, this paper presents an analysis of the literature that reveals the current state of the science of clinical reasoning, identifies gaps in knowledge, and elucidates areas for future research...

In the current healthcare environment, the healthcare industry has become increasingly focused on population health concerns. While advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are well prepared to contribute to population health by delivering holistic healthcare to individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations, they are not engaged in initiatives to improve population health commensurate with their numbers, education, training, experience, and role as primary care providers and essential healthcare team leaders and members...

Facilitating student achievement of nationally recognized entry-level-competencies in nursing leadership is a critical step in building capacity to promote patient safety, quality of care, and healthy work environments. Data for this substudy were drawn from a larger multi-phased, multi-method, cross-sectional, descriptive study conducted to inform comprehensive undergraduate curricular revision. The research question for this substudy was: what are the perceptions about undergraduate program preparation for nursing leadership? Frequencies and percentages summarized relevant quantitative data from the surveys and deductive content analysis was used to further explore the category of leadership which emerged from content analysis of qualitative data in the larger study...

Abstract In most schools of nursing, students rate their satisfaction with courses and teachers at the end of the semester. Low response rates on these evaluations make it difficult to interpret the results. Students were incentivized to complete their course evaluations by adding 1-2 points to one test score in the course in exchange for 85 % or higher participation by the total cohort. Ongoing monitoring and communication to students by faculty during the process was critical to motivating students to complete course evaluations...

With the knowledge of psychoneuroimmunological responses and the known high stress levels of nursing students, as caring nurse educators, we have become ethically obligated to revise and re-vision our current nursing educational practices. Nurse educators should be motivated to create innovative and radical caring science curricular approaches, so that our nurses of the future are in turn supported in creating caring- healing sustainable bedside practices. This paper details the outcomes from an upper level yoga elective in an RN- BSN program...

This Participatory Action Research (PAR) project aimed to engage students from an accelerated 'fast track' nursing program in a mentoring collaboration, using an interdisciplinary partnership intervention with a group of academics. Student participants represented the disciplines of nursing and paramedicine with a high proportion of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) students. Nine student mentors were recruited and paired with academics for a three-month 'mentorship partnership' intervention. Data from two pre-intervention workshops and a post-intervention workshop were coded in NVivo11 using thematic analysis...

Abstract Background:Nursing students face the challenge of developing a comprehensive understanding of the complex role of the registered nurse across various clinical settings. Frameworks such as the "ways of knowing", help students conceptualize and critically reflect upon important processes in their professional learning. However, the academic language used to describe frameworks can be challenging. PURPOSE: This manuscript has two purposes. First, to briefly describe the historical climate influencing the development of nursing as a discipline...

The purpose of the cross-sectional descriptive study was to explore and compare the students' experiences of the clinical environment and supervision in Slovakia. Students' clinical learning experience were measured by the valid and reliable clinical learning instrument. A higher frequency of successful supervisory experience was found in the universities which provided accredited mentor preparation programmes or courses and individualised supervisory approaches. Frequency of supervision meetings, the occupational title of a supervisor and mainly the supervision model have an association with students 'perceptions of different domains of clinical learning environment...

Abstract Background Empathic concern has been found to decline in health professional students. Few effective educational programs and a lack of validated scales are reported. Previous analysis of the Empathic Concern scale of the Emotional Response Questionnaire has reported both one and two latent constructs. Aim To evaluate the impact of simulation on nursing students' empathic concern and test the psychometric properties of the Empathic Concern scale. Methods The study used a one group pre-test post-test design with a convenience sample of 460 nursing students...

As the development of nursing education becomes increasingly internationalized, it is tempting to focus on universal aspects of the discipline rather than explicitly emphasizing the distinct national cultures and contexts within which our profession and its educational styles and approaches have evolved. Capitalizing on an opportunity for comparative critical reflection on the relevant political, economic and social histories that have underpinned the development of nursing education in China, Brazil and Canada - three countries united by shared values about equity and access to health services - we sought to deconstruct the manner in which these forces have shaped the national differences in the way we conceptualize and deliver nursing education...

Clinical learning experiences are essential in nursing education but they are often anxiety provoking for learners. Understanding the factors associated with the anxiety levels of nursing students in clinical placements has become more complex over the years with increasing heterogeneity within the nursing population. A correlational study was conducted to examine the relationships between nursing students' self-perceived anxiety levels, as measured by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and the students' age, gender, previous employment, and previous education...

Each year, thousands of students throughout the world are required to complete one or more high-stakes tests as a measure of competency in undergraduate nursing education. Currently, the trend in nursing education is to use high-stakes tests to establish program progression policies. However, use of these tests to block student progression is of serious concern. This article describes findings of a pilot study that used a phenomenographic approach to understand senior nursing students' experiences of completing multiple high-stakes tests for successful progression within one undergraduate nursing program...
