"Nursing Education" OR "Nurse Education"

Michelle Roxburgh, Jacqueline McCallum, Gill McCrossan, Fiona Smith
This paper will share how one country within the United Kingdom (UK) collaborated on a national partnership approach in developing a consistent pre-registration undergraduate nursing practice learning assessment document. In 2011 the Scottish Heads of Academic Nursing and Allied Health Professionals (SHANAHP, now Council of Deans Scotland, CoDS) agreed to support the development of a Scottish national approach to practice learning assessment document (the "Scottish Ongoing Achievement Record"). Whilst no direct funding was received to support this work, each HEI agreed that this work would be recognised via the release of staff time to enable completion...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Blood culture contamination is a safety and quality concern in children's hospitals; it leads to increased unnecessary testing, admissions, antibiotic exposure, and cost. The standard benchmark for blood culture contamination is 3%. Our aim with the quality improvement project was to reduce the contamination rate at our children's hospital from a mean of 2.85% to <1.5% in 2 years. METHODS: After initial unit-specific efforts, we formed a multidisciplinary team, created a process map and a cause-and-effect analysis, sent out surveys to nurses, and created observation sheets used to identify problem areas and record the most common deviations during the collection process...

Throughout nursing, spirituality is a recognized domain of patient care, but nurses feel ill prepared by their nursing education to provide care that is spiritual in nature to patients and their families. Incorporating spiritual care into nursing curricula is challenging in light of the amount of topics for healthcare learning. Open Journey Theory is based on the merging of two grounded theories, one teaching and one learning theory, and is the suggested framework for integrating spirituality and spiritual care across all levels of nursing education...

Although trauma centers are required to provide trauma education to nurses caring for trauma patients, there are no clearly defined standards for this education. In an effort to improve emergency department (ED) trauma nursing care, a tiered approach to ED trauma education (basic, intermediate, and advanced) was developed to provide specialized trauma education to a larger number of ED nurses at a Level II trauma center in Georgia. This tiered approach to ED trauma nurse education has resulted in the ability to quickly activate multiple trauma teams that work together competently and efficiently, leading to improved patient care and development of competent ED trauma nurses...

Trauma has a greater impact on morbidity and mortality than all other disease processes in the pediatric population; yet, there is a gap in the literature related to the scientific basis for educating and researching future practice. The purpose of this research study was to utilize the Delphi technique to identify the current education and research priorities for pediatric trauma nursing as described by the members of the Society of Trauma Nurses. Consensus on the education and research priorities was derived from a sample (n = 25) of trauma nursing experts...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review of the literature is to synthesis the knowledge attained about determinants of student-faculty relationships and its impact on student outcomes. While adding to the body knowledge, the researchers discuss the importance, barriers, and facilitators to student-faculty academic relationships in nursing education. DESIGN: We conducted a narrative literature review using a modified version of the framework of the Population, Intervention, Comparison, and Outcome method to develop the research question for this review...

Many, especially newer, nurses lack the experience for nuanced skillful communication at end of life. This study incorporated the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) Core Curriculum Communication module into a nurse residency program and tested for change in attitudes toward end-of-life (EOL) care. Researchers found significant differences in attitudes toward care of the dying before and after the ELNEC training, and between nurses with greater than and less than 5 years experience. Findings support that ELNEC education can significantly impact nurse attitudes about EOL care...

BACKGROUND: Nonreporting of medical errors is an impediment to error prevention and safety in the clinical environment. Many prelicensure nursing education programs do not have policies, procedures, or forms to support student reporting of errors or near misses during their clinical experiences. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences of clinical faculty with prelicensure nursing student errors or near misses in the clinical environment and to use this information to create a reporting form...

OBJECTIVES:  The study described the support of students by lecturers in an extended 5-year nursing foundation programme. METHOD:  A qualitative, exploratory and descriptive design was applied...

BACKGROUND:  The success of any educational institution is measured by its academic performance or how well students meet the standards set out. Currently, nursing students' academic failure is a phenomenon of growing international interest because of its economic impact and its negative effects on the availability of future nurses in different health care systems. Factors identified as influencing the academic performance of students include the socio-economic background of parents or guardians, lecturer-student relationships, academic support services, demographic factors, quality of nurse educators, availability of facilities in the school, the language of instruction and level of entry qualifications of students...

BACKGROUND:  Despite the introduction of the Disability Policy Guidelines in South Africa (SA), student nurses who have disabilities (SNWDs) are still habitually and effectively excluded from nurse training programmes, and hence from the nursing profession. Yet SNWD may be able to offer a unique perspective. OBJECTIVES:  To explore and describe the integration experiences of both student and qualified nurses with disabilities who graduated from selected KwaZulu-Natal nursing education institutions (NEIs)...

Position statements are used by large organisations such as the Australian College of Critical Care Nurses to publically present an official philosophy or beliefs and to propose recommendations. Position statements are increasingly used by health departments and healthcare facilities to allocate resources and to guide and audit nursing practice, yet there are limited resources on the process of their development. A position statement should help readers better understand the issue, communicate solutions to problems, and inform decision-making...

Nurses require effective communication and interpersonal skills to provide optimal care, and to ensure that patients and their families and carers have a positive experience of receiving care. The new Nursing and Midwifery Council standards of proficiency for registered nurses, and for nurse education and training, published in May 2018, recognise that future nurses will be practising in increasingly complex roles and environments. This article identifies the essential communication skills that will be required by nurses in the future, summarising the characteristics of a modern nurse communicator...

Best practices identified in this effort include (a) use of a quality improvement analyst for data trending, (b) inclusion of an off-shift nurse educator, (c) use of evidence-based practice, (d) a standardized preceptor program, and (e) appropriate evaluation instruments...

Palliative care is patient- and family-centered care that enhances quality of life throughout the illness trajectory and can ease the symptoms, discomfort, and stress for children living with life-threatening conditions and their families. This paper aims to increase nurses' and other healthcare providers' awareness of selected recent research initiatives aimed at enhancing life and decreasing suffering for these children and their families. Topics were selected based on identified gaps in the pediatric palliative care literature...

Academic and clinical site partnerships are not new. However, many of these have not resulted in graduates of nursing education programs who are prepared to fulfill their full potential as newly employed professionals. This article describes an education program for Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) students in which the students, under the close supervision of academic faculty, utilize their statistical analyses and complex system coursework to study and address "wicked" problems faced by health care organizations...
