Preceptors play key roles in nursing students' socialization or formation, and transition from academia to practice. Students still struggle with this transition. Viewing student socialization to nursing as enculturation has provided valuable insights into faculty perceptions of this process. This focused ethnography explored preceptors' perceptions about nursing's culture and their role in bringing students into that culture. Data included semi-structured interviews with preceptor participants from three hospitals in two cities in a single Midwestern state...

BACKGROUND: Current and expected problems such as ageing, increased prevalence of chronic conditions and multi-morbidity, increased emphasis on healthy lifestyle and prevention, and substitution for care from hospitals by care provided in the community encourage countries worldwide to develop new models of primary care delivery. Owing to the fact that many tasks do not necessarily require the knowledge and skills of a doctor, interest in using nurses to expand the capacity of the primary care workforce is increasing...

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...

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.

AIM: The aim of the study was to explore and understand the phenomenon of "failing to fail." BACKGROUND: Phase 1 of a mixed-methods study suggested faculty in clinical settings instructed students that should not have passed preceding placements; students in didactic settings also passed exams that merited a fail. Phase 2 explored this phenomenon. METHOD: A multisite qualitative case study targeted baccalaureate and community college faculty to support analysis using replication logic...

Improvement in workplace safety is dependent upon the active engagement of workforce leaders and designers. The university sector plays a key role in the education of these future leaders, and there is an expectation that safety education in universities will encompass more than just a safe learning environment—that is the nurturing of broader safety attitudes and awareness. However, with the exception of dedicated safety training programs, safety education is often delivered and assessed on an ad-hoc basis and at academic discretion...

Informatics is a core competency for nursing students recognized by several national organizations in healthcare and nursing education. Nurses must be able to use information and technology to communicate and manage knowledge in support of clinical decisions. Many hospitals either limit or deny nursing students' access to the electronic health record during traditional clinical learning. Simulation-based learning experiences are an alternative to traditional clinical experiences. What remains unclear is how nursing programs are incorporating electronic health record platforms within simulation...

To determine the effects of gamification on student education, researchers implemented "Kaizen," a software-based knowledge competition, among a first-year class of undergraduate nursing students. Multiple-choice questions were released weekly or biweekly during two rounds of play. Participation was voluntary, and students could play the game using any Web-enabled device. Analyses of data generated from the game included (1) descriptive, (2) logistic regression modeling of factors associated with user attrition, (3) generalized linear mixed model for retention of knowledge, and (4) analysis of variance of final examination performance by play styles...

This change project was developed in response to the lack of a high-fidelity simulation program at a midwestern university in the United States. The use of clinical simulation as a teaching-and-learning strategy has significantly increased within nursing education. Unlike some colleges, this university had a dedicated simulation laboratory with two high-fidelity simulators; however, there was no clinical simulation program to use this equipment. The expensive simulation equipment sat unused because of the lack of funding for dedicated faculty, lack of a champion to implement, shortage of faculty time, minimal knowledge of the use of high-fidelity simulators, and a lack of curriculum integration...
