Clinical Ladder Programs or Clinical Advancement Programs (CAPs) are an essential component of staff nurse professional development, satisfaction, and retention. There is a need for more evidence regarding developing CAPs. CAP initially launched in 2004. Nurses accomplished tasks in four main areas: clinical, education, leadership, and research, which reflected and incorporated the 14 Forces of Magnetism. In February 2012, the newly revised program was launched and renamed Professional Nursing Development Program...

Nutritional disorders in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) worsen the medical condition. In particular, obesity is a serious problem that increases the risk of cardiomyopathy and affects nursing care. However, it is often difficult to evaluate body fatness in the advanced stages of DMD. Skinfold thickness measurement is a classical method to evaluate body fatness and is easily performed, even for bed-bound patients at home. We aimed to investigate the utility of skinfold thickness measurement in non-ambulatory DMD patients...

Body modification, also known as body art, has been a common cultural practice for thousands of years and includes body piercings, transdermal and subdermal implants, tattoos, scarification, body stretching and sculpting, dental grills, and nail art. Perioperative nurses must learn more about body art to provide nonjudgmental, nonprejudicial care and to ensure patient safety when they prepare patients for surgery. A welcoming environment engages patients and fosters communication so that patients are more likely to share hidden body art...

Professional practice models guide nursing practice by giving meaning to the work of nurses. They elevate the practice from tasks to theory, from skills to knowledge, and remind us that the patient and family are at the center of our practice. Professional practice models are one of the foundations of the Magnet Recognition Program. The purpose of this paper is to describe the development and implementation of a professional practice model in a healthcare system, which includes three hospitals and over 80 ambulatory practices in the New York City region...

BACKGROUND: Care quality continues to be a focal point within US health care. One quality innovation is the Magnet recognition program for hospitals, which is a nurse-driven initiative emphasizing care and patient-safety improvements. To date, Magnet hospitals have been associated with better outcomes, but their distribution is highly uneven. Relatedly, little research has characterized what factors drive Magnet adoption (eg, competitive pressure from other hospitals). OBJECTIVE: To examine if hospitals respond to more competing hospitals becoming Magnets by also becoming Magnet institutions...

The purpose of this study was to assess school nurses' perceptions of barriers to optimal management of seizures in schools. Eighty-three school nurses completed an electronic survey. Most agreed they felt confident they could identify a seizure (97.6%), give rectal diazepam (83.8%), and handle cluster seizures (67.1%), but fewer were confident they could give intranasal midazolam (63.3%), had specific information about a student's seizures (56.6%), or could swipe a vagus nerve stimulator magnet (47.4%). Nurses were more likely to be available at the time of a seizure in rural (17/20) (85%) versus suburban (21/34) (62%) or urban (8/25) (32%) schools (P = ...
