Healthcare environments have increased in complexity over the last 30 years. However, educational methods to prepare nurses have remained virtually unchanged. To prepare nurses to practice in today's complex practice environment, there are calls for change and transformation in how nursing education is implemented. This transformation requires nurse educators to shift their epistemic beliefs about teaching and learning by considering theories that promote effective learning. An innovative method being used in nursing education is the Flipped Classroom Method (FCM)...

Compassionate care is fundamental to nursing. However, when delivering compassionate care, the expected emotional state may not always spontaneously arise, risking a dissonance between authentic and displayed emotions. Nurses may therefore be required to engage in some form of emotional regulation strategy, to conform with assumed professional rules on emotional display. In both the dissonance and emotional regulation, there are risks on which nurses need to reflect. In this article, the end of the Trojan War as depicted in Homer's The Iliad and Virgil's The Aeneid is used as an allegory to illustrate the dangers and advantages of using response- or antecedent-focused strategies for emotional regulation...

Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is an effective strategy to manage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), though its utilization rate is low. One reason for this low utilization rate is that nurses do not provide COPD patients with enough health education to increase the patient's motivation for PR participation. This study examined knowledge, attitudes, and behavioral intention toward PR promotion. The study also investigated the correlates of behavioral intentions to promote PR among pulmonary nurses...

Nurse educators require support to develop questions and engage in postexam analysis to ensure reliable assessment of student learning. We surveyed nurse educators and conducted focus groups to investigate current writing practices associated with MCEs. Using appreciative inquiry, participants proposed ideals to strengthen MCE practice: guidelines and expectations for faculty, faculty-developed test banks, team development, and an assessment blueprint at the curriculum level...

The concept of compassionate caring in an online nursing education environment is an idea that has limited research. The College of Nursing at Sacred Heart University has adopted a caring model and philosophy to foster an engaged, mutually beneficial environment and guide how faculty and students interact in the online environment. Examples of how faculty engage students in these behaviors are offered.

Reform to nursing education is essential to ensure future generations of nurses are strongly positioned to value, know, and deliver strength-based, recovery-oriented mental health practice. A promising pathway to effectively drive reform is the coproduction of curricula by nursing academics and people with lived experience of recovery from mental distress referred to as Experts by Experience. The Co-production in Mental Health Nursing Education (COMMUNE) project is an international collaboration for development and implementation of consumer coproduced curricula...
