#1
Lesia A Aungst
Urgent care centers (UCCs) frequently experience long wait times, overcrowding, and patient dissatisfaction. According to recent studies in the emergency care setting, utilization of telemedicine during patient triage has demonstrated reduction in patient wait time and improvement in patient satisfaction. Implementation of telemedicine in urgent care settings may make triage faster and more efficient and lead to similar improvements in wait time and patient satisfaction. Finally, there is potential for telemedicine to improve working conditions for providers and staff of UCCs...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) is expected to increase early detection of lung cancer and improve survival. The growth in the number of advanced nurse practitioners (NPs) in primary care settings increases the likelihood that an NP will serve as a patient's provider. This study's purpose was to examine knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding LDCT among NPs who work in primary care settings. METHODS: An explanatory, sequential, mixed-method design used a 32-item questionnaire, followed by a semi-structured telephone interview...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Identifying the locations of advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) in the state is challenging without data readily available, which can adversely affect stakeholder initiatives. The purpose of this project was to develop an online interactive map reflecting distribution of APRNs licensed by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing (LSBN), heightening APRN visibility and improving usability of data for policy, education, practice, and research initiatives. METHODS: A descriptive design with development of a graphical interactive map showing all Louisiana parishes with integrated distribution summaries of APRNs was made...

Hilary Barnes, Lorraine M Novosel
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is no single comprehensive data source for conducting nurse practitioner (NP)-focused workforce and outcomes research. The 2015 Research Agenda Roundtable of the Fellows of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners supports the development of a national NP data source. A scoping review was conducted to provide an overview of data being used in NP-focused research and to identify key issues relevant to making progress toward a national NP database. METHODS: PubMed, CINAHL, and EMBASE were searched for English-language articles published within the past 10 years (2007-2017)...

Joyce A Hahn
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) Compact was approved at the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Delegate Assembly in May 2015. Since that date, only three states have been successful in the legislative adoption of the compact. Thus, the purpose of this study was to explore the experiences and perceptions of nursing regulatory leaders involved with the individual state adoption of the APRN Compact. METHODS: This qualitative study followed a phenomenological-hermeneutic methodology approach...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Antibiotic therapy has been the mainstay of treatment in the management of hospitalized patients with nosocomial urinary tract infection (UTI); however, its use is associated with an increase in resistance and high cost. Ibuprofen showed effectiveness in relieving symptoms of UTI, but its superiority is questionable. The goal of this study was to compare the effectiveness of antibiotics against ibuprofen in relieving symptoms of UTI and to identify factors that affect symptom relief...

Angela Thompson
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Role transition is a natural process that occurs when the registered nurse pursues additional education to become a nurse practitioner (NP). Role transition generates feelings of anxiety and insecurity, leading to a longer and more tumultuous adjustment. This study investigated whether an evidence-based role transition webinar would support NP role transition during this critical period. METHODS: This study was a nonrandomized, pretest-posttest, and single-group study using a convenience sample to address the research question: "Does completion of a role transition webinar enhance the perception of new NPs of their ability to perform well in their role?" CONCLUSIONS: The educational webinar was shown to have a positive influence on some aspects of the participant's reported perceptions of NP role transition...

Margaret Bobonich, Mary Nolen
The number of nurse practitioners (NPs) specializing in dermatology has been rapidly rising. Most dermatology NPs acquire their knowledge and skills through post-master's continuing education, select NP fellowship programs, and on-the-job training. However, the professional competencies for dermatology NPs have not been defined or standardized. Competencies require unique knowledge, skills, and judgment for the care of dermatology patients. A national task force and validation panel was convened to define the entry-level competencies for dermatology NP practice...

Hypophosphatasia is a rare, progressive metabolic disorder inherited in either an autosomal dominant or an autosomal recessive fashion. Affected individuals may have unusual bone development. Infants may be diagnosed with infantile rickets. Symptoms then abate during adolescence, with bony abnormalities manifesting again as mid-life osteopenia or osteoporosis. Long-term management is focused on minimizing complications, so consultations and periodic visits with a variety of specialists is often warranted. New therapies are on the horizon, but some agents used to treat bone diseases are contraindicated in this population...

Jessica L Peck
Nurse practitioners can be a powerful frontline force by collectively raising awareness of human trafficking (HT) through education; advocating for policy change at the local/state/federal level, providing primary prevention for contributory risk factors; and building a strong HT prevention program with the Social-Ecological Model. Together, NPs can lead through practice, education, advocacy, and research to promote optimal health outcomes and to end human trafficking.

Calli L Cook, Glenn C Shedd
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Migraine headache is an enormous health care burden resulting in billions of dollars in workforce revenue lost and millions of lost workdays per year. Migraine headaches and depression are common comorbidities and require expertise in treatment and prevention. METHODS: The aim of this article is to update the nurse practitioner (NP) on best clinical practices for managing the patient with migraine and previously diagnosed depression. This will include an overview of the pathophysiology of migraine, as well as criteria for diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and patient teaching...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The elderly population is expected to double by 2050 with falls and hospitalizations due to adverse drug events having a major effect on health and quality of life. With the release of the revised 2015 American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Beers criteria, usage of potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) should be studied to determine their effect on falls and hospitalizations in frail populations such as those in assisted living facilities. METHODS: This quality improvement project used a retrospective chart review on residents from a purposive sample of two assisted living facilities in Northern Virginia...

David E Winchester, Irene Kittles
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Sudden cardiac death occurs predominantly at home where cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is often not provided. We tested the hypothesis that a self-teaching kit distributed to patients would effectively increase self-confidence in CPR. METHODS: Patients seen by an advanced registered nurse practitioner in a general cardiology clinic were offered a self-teaching kit to learn CPR. Four-point scale survey questions were assessed at distribution and via phone call at 30 days...

Military children make tremendous sacrifices in support of a parent(s) military service. More than two million children have a parent who is serving or has served in the Armed Forces. Research shows that military-connected children are at higher risk of physical, psychological, and behavioral health issues. While "resilient" is the word used to describe most military children, it is important to recognize the stresses/stressors of military life- that military children serve too-to support and care for them...
