INTRODUCTION: While child nursing students may expect to encounter child abuse and neglect and assume a safeguarding role when they qualify, those undertaking adult nursing courses may not expect to come into contact with children and may be even less likely to expect to encounter child abuse or neglect. This paper presents the findings of an interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) study. Students learn through experience and reflection and Mezirow's Transformational Learning Theory (TLT) was used to explain the various ways in which nine adult nursing students attempted to make sense of and learn from their experiences of encountering perceived child abuse and neglect during their community placement...

To address this issue in nursing education, the faculty of a school of nursing designed and implemented an innovative teaching strategy that can be adopted by other nursing programs and faculty. METHOD: A systematic plan was developed and implemented to integrate standardized patients with disabilities (SPWD) into an existing undergraduate nursing program...

BACKGROUND: Recent discourse generates a more thorough understanding of what clinical reasoning entails. Although numerous strategies prioritize clinical reasoning development, teaching and evaluating the thinking involved in clinical reasoning remains a struggle for nurse educators, particularly regarding clinical education. METHOD: In response, the author developed a concept-based clinical reasoning teaching method with weekly themes, lessons, and learning activities adapted from Tanner's clinical judgment model and Lasater's Clinical Judgment Rubric...

METHOD: The Uncivil Clinical Behavior in Nursing Education Tool and the Horizontal and Vertical Individualism/Collectivism Scale were used to collect data. A final sample of 975 surveys was analyzed...

BACKGROUND: This descriptive survey study provides the first evaluation of an innovative Master of Science in Nursing Education (MSNEd) program developed to meet the need for qualified nurse educators to teach in Liberia's schools of nursing and midwifery. METHOD: Quantitative and qualitative data were collected via electronic survey from MSNEd graduates (n = 46) and deans/directors of affiliated schools of nursing/midwifery in Liberia (n = 9) regarding end-of-program outcomes, graduate and employer satisfaction with the program, and how the program affected graduates' work, career advancement, and leadership development...

While institutional and program accreditation has long been required for physician and nursing education, paramedic program accreditation was largely voluntary in the US until recently. Our objective was to assess whether program accreditation is associated with higher pass rates and cognitive ability performance. This was a cross-sectional evaluation of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians' (NREMT) Paramedic Certification cognitive examination results for graduates of US paramedic pro¬grams...

The purpose of this paper is to propose a paradigm shift from "global nursing" toward "planetary nursing" to more effectively engage worldwide health initiatives, such as the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Such a shift expands the understanding of "health" from a phenomenon focused solely on humanity toward one of interdependent animal, environment, and overall planetary well-being, recalibrating the future roles and responsibilities of nursing accordingly...

BACKGROUND: Although the individual and public health consequences of alcohol and drug use are substantial, nursing education programs generally lack content on addiction. The goal of this evaluation was to compare the initial outcomes of on-site versus distance methods for training graduate nurse practitioner students in Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for substance use. METHOD: A nonrandomized two-group pretest-posttest design was used to compare knowledge, attitudes, and skills learning outcomes between on-site (n = 45) and distance (n = 18) family or adult/geriatric Master of Science in Nursing nurse practitioner students receiving SBIRT training...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic disorder that causes the unwanted backflow of gastric contents into the esophagus, throat, and mouth. Gastroesophageal reflux disease affects roughly 20% of the US population. It is estimated that older adults experience GERD symptoms more commonly and with greater severity because of age-related physiologic changes. Comorbidities and polypharmacy, common in older adults, can also exacerbate GERD symptoms, which can allow the disease to progress. This integrative review aims to identify key lifestyle-associated risk factors and interventions appropriate for older adults with GERD...

BACKGROUND: Nursing is a scientific profession, based on theory and art of care. However, the theory-practice gap has become the biggest challenge of this profession and decreases the quality of service both in teaching and practice. Thus, it seems necessary to search for these reasons in situations such as emergency department - which has an effective role in patients' health. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to find the perceived reasons for the theory-practice gap in the process of emergency nursing education from the perspective of professors, nurses, and students, as well as doctors, since they cooperate with nurses and students in the training environment...

Bioterrorism content is too often absent from nursing education post-licensure. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), bioterrorism is defined as "the deliberate release of viruses, bacteria, or other germs (agents) used to cause illness or death in people, animals, or plants." The purpose of this scholarly work was to develop and pilot a curriculum on introductory bioterrorism concepts for practicing nurses. A literature search and a review of available resources elucidated pertinent content items on bioterrorism and its associated precautions for nurses...

BACKGROUND: The learning of nursing students can be facilitated through direct and/or indirect experiences of using clinical information and communication technology during clinical placements. However, nursing students experience difficulties in using technology for learning. Despite the difficulties, nursing students' learning dynamics with technology in real clinical contexts is poorly understood. OBJECTIVES: To develop a theoretical model by identifying nursing students' learning dynamics with clinical information and communication technology and the factors influencing the dynamics...

INTRODUCTION: Individuals with eating disorders (EDs) experience suicidal thoughts and behaviors at elevated rates compared to the general population. Hope-engendering nursing actions may increase patients' levels of hope for the future, improve coping self-efficacy, and possibly reduce suicidality. Although nursing staff are integral ED treatment team members, little is known about nursing actions targeting hopefulness. AIM: Explore differences between patients' and nurses' perceptions of hope-engendering nurse actions and the relationship actions have with patients' perception of hope...

BACKGROUND & PROBLEMS: Problems that influence the safety and quality of the patient-positioning process during computed tomography (CT) simulation with contrast injection include: 1) inconsistent and incomplete procedures performed by medical staffs, 2) poor prevention of developer leakage and handling of side-effects, and 3) the lack of a standardized protocol. Desire to improve this situation encouraged us to do this project. Adverse events during CT simulation with contrast injection procedures are largely attributable to the lack of a standardized nursing informatics system, with other causes including nurses incorrectly performing allergy history assessments, incorrect communications with the doctor due to verbal orders given by phone, failure to perform proper patient identification and intravenous catheterization procedures, lack of assessment and knowledge about contrasts, lack of guidelines for warming contrast in the incubator, and lack of oxygen and sputum suction equipment...

Cultivating the ability of students to think creatively is a goal of nursing education. Combining creative-thinking training with the innovative work of nurses is a great challenge for nursing educators. This article uses Dr. Chen Lung-An's ATDE model of creative-thinking teaching strategies (asking, thinking, doing, and evaluation) as a framework to guide learners to use existing knowledge and experiences in group communication and cooperation. Teachers create a friendly and supportive discussion environment and lead nursing students to apply creative thinking to complete innovative works...
