Community nursing clinical experiences are essential to the education of BSN prelicensure students. Because of limited traditional community clinical sites, faculty must identify innovative, nontraditional community sites that provide quality experiences. Faculty at Ohio University identified a unique opportunity to provide a multidisciplinary collaborative community clinical rotation in conjunction with the Center for Therapeutic Riding Center located at the Ohio Horse Park. Nineteen senior BSN students participated in a six-week community clinical experience caring for a variety of vulnerable populations participating in the therapeutic riding program...

BACKGROUND: As the demands for high-quality nursing care increase and organizations are held accountable for patient outcomes, health care must be driven by research and evidence-based practice (EBP). Historically, prelicensure nursing students have expressed little interest in these topics as they focus on establishing the clinical skills necessary to provide care and have found that courses on nursing research are not clinically relevant. METHOD: This article presents one institution's approach to undergraduate nursing research education by three initiatives: (a) a summer research program, (b) a distinguished major program, and (c) an EBP approach in the undergraduate nursing research course...

BACKGROUND: The link between clinical education and development of clinical reasoning is not well supported by one theoretical perspective. Learning to reason during clinical education may be best achieved in a supportive sociocultural context of nursing practice that maximizes reasoning opportunities and facilitates discourse and meaningful feedback. Prelicensure clinical education seldom incorporates these critical components and thus may fail to directly promote clinical reasoning skill...

Research has demonstrated that patients facing serious, life-limiting illnesses and their families benefit from receiving palliative care. Increasingly, however, specialty palliative care has limited resources. Prelicensure nursing students who are educated to provide primary palliative care to patients with serious illness and at the end of life can fill that gap. This article describes the development and implementation of an innovative online nursing curriculum that prepares students with essential primary palliative nursing knowledge and skills...

Nurse educators have had no clear evidence-based method to evaluate student competency related to professional values. This article describes a comparative analysis in which the list of professional values identified in a research study of undergraduate prelicensure nursing student assignments was compared with a list identified in an integrative review of nursing literature. Comparative analysis allowed for a categorization of professional values that were either congruent between student assignments and literature, exclusively evident in literature, or exclusively evident in student assignments...

Use of simulation in teaching is well established as a viable educational technique. Flipped classroom techniques using technology have been shown to enhance and deepen knowledge of content. This educational innovation utilized both techniques in a second-semester prelicensure nursing course to allow students to gain a broader focus on complex patient scenarios and a better understanding of simulation as a teaching/learning tool. The project was an assigned simulation expectation for a medical-surgical nursing course...

BACKGROUND: Lesson planning is a documentation process used extensively in education from kindergarten through 12th grade, but rarely in higher education, including undergraduate, prelicensure nursing education. Lesson plans help teachers plan what will happen during a class period from moment to moment. Trends in nursing education, such as the incorporation of active learning strategies in the classroom, make lesson plans a timely addition to the nurse educator's toolkit. METHOD: This article describes the components of a lesson plan and offers an author-developed template for use in nursing education...

Clinical experiences are the hallmark of prelicensure nursing programs and assist students with applying nursing theory into practice. The literature is limited with respect to nursing student and instructor preferences for type of clinical model to facilitate student learning. This article explores these perceptions in the nursing programs of 5 universities located in 4 Western Canadian provinces. Findings support the use of both nonblock and block clinical models throughout nursing education programs.

Various factors have compelled nurse educators to address the lack of substance use-related content in nursing curriculum. Initiatives to add this content are often met with resistance because of an already crowded curriculum. This article describes a 4-phase process that guided the integration of this specialty content into a prelicensure nursing curriculum and a master's level advanced practice nursing curriculum. Lessons learned and recommendations from those experiences are provided to guide nurse educators undertaking similar efforts...

Research indicates that nurses lack adequate preparation for reporting patient status. This study compared 2 instructional methods focused on patient status reporting in the clinical setting using a randomized posttest-only comparison group design. Reporting performance using a standardized communication framework and student perceptions of satisfaction and confidence with learning were measured in a simulated event that followed the instruction. Between the instructional methods, there was no statistical difference in student reporting performance or perceptions of learning...

This research is an example of a service learning partnership between a prelicensure nursing program and local school district. Through this partnership, students participated in a thoughtfully organized project that met the needs of a community and promoted the humanizing of health care education. Nursing students, under the guidance of faculty, performed required physical examinations for Special Olympics athletes who represented a wide range of age, physical, social, and intellectual levels. Research findings indicated an increase in nursing students' affective and cognitive development after this activity...
