Joanes Faustine Mboineki, Chen Changying, Weihong Zhang
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Although the demand for competent health care professionals and better services is high, studies concerning nursing education are not a priority in sub-Saharan African countries, as revealed in limited available records. Strengthening nursing education by establishing proper training models for newly developed advanced practice roles such as "nurse practitioner" (NP) will increase competency in nurses and reduce the shortage of skilled staff within the health care system, thereby enhancing the proper provision of health care services...

BACKGROUND: High-fidelity simulation represents a primary tool in nursing education, especially when hands-on practical training is involved. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the influence of high-fidelity clinical simulation, applied during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training, on blood pressure, heart rate, stress, and anxiety levels in 2 groups of nursing students. One group had experience in health contexts, whereas the other group had none. METHODS: We performed a quasi-experimental study...

An intervention study investigated strategies to increase exercise and hydration in baccalaureate nursing students. METHOD: Using a convenience sample ( n = 73), data were collected through pre- and postsurveys of nursing students participating in an 8-week period that focused on strategies to increase walking and drinking water...

Nurse educators have the responsibility to create learning experiences centered on the scientific and praxis foci of the nursing discipline to advance nursing practice with families. Although the nursing profession has ample knowledge about the importance of family nursing and the value of family-focused actions, there is a lack of curricular and teaching models that address nursing practice with families in numerous courses and learning experiences. This article describes the development of a family-focused undergraduate curriculum and teaching-learning practices at Minnesota State University, Mankato in the United States...

BACKGROUND: Nursing education in Iran has conventionally focused on lecture-based strategies. Improvements in teaching and learning over the years have led to an expansion of the pedagogies available to educators. Likewise, there has been a suggestion for a move toward more learner-centered teaching strategies and pedagogies that can result in improvement in learning. This study was undertaken to investigate the effects of Problem-Based Learning in developing cognitive skills in learning Pediatric Nursing among university students...

BACKGROUND: Nurse educators are exploring how mobile technology can support students in clinical practice. However, the view of nursing students on the use of smartphones and mobile applications (apps) to enhance clinical education has not been explored. Their opinions are vital to capture if the right technology is to be designed, evaluated, implemented and used. METHOD: A self-reported questionnaire, based on a review of the literature, was used to understand the opinions of undergraduate nursing students towards the use of smartphones and mobile apps to support learning in clinical environments...

The advancement of the doctor of nursing practice (DNP) degree and the need for nurse researchers with a doctor of philosophy (PhD) has led to significant growth in doctoral nursing education. Some DNP graduates have chosen to pursue a second terminal degree. This descriptive study explored the experiences of students completing a DNP-to-PhD pathway program. Data analysis revealed that DNP-to-PhD students desired acceptance in academia. Implications suggest the need for additional pathway programs, clear communication about program outcomes for both degrees, formal teaching preparation for all nurse educators, and collaborative opportunities for DNP- and PhD-prepared faculty...

AIM: The study purpose was to describe students' perceptions of feedback after participating in a teaching strategy designed to foster a view of feedback as an opportunity for improvement.

METHOD: Twelve nurse educators from the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses Academic Task Force, located at nine schools of nursing across the nation, implemented a presentation about giving and receiving constructive feedback in junior and senior courses...

Academic leaders in a college of nursing were faced with an increasing need to integrate high quality simulations into their undergraduate curriculum; however, there was a general lack of expertise in the subject area among faculty. The leaders supported the development of an online course that focused on improving foundational simulation knowledge. The course, developed through collaboration between a faculty simulation expert and an instructional designer, was specifically designed to focus on key simulation objectives to improve the simulation skill set of faculty...

DESIGN: We used a qualitative design with a conventional content analysis approach. METHODS: We conducted semistructured interviews with 24 SCNs. These nurses have passed specialized clinical courses, are master's or bachelor's degree prepared, have additional course work beyond the bachelor degree, and practice with an expanded scope of responsibility...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To generate a theoretical explanation of nurse-to-nurse mentoring in the clinical setting. BACKGROUND: Despite an abundance of mentoring literature, the processes involved between nurses in mentoring relationships has yet to be studied. Nursing literature has focused on mentor attributes and relationship outcomes rather than focusing on theoretical discovery. DESIGN: Classical Grounded Theory (CGT). METHODS: CGT procedures (constant comparative method, coding, and memoing) were used to analyze interview data exploring fifteen nurse protégés' experiences of mentoring...

The history of nursing education has often been portrayed as the subordination of nursing to medicine. Yet, as scholars are increasingly acknowledging, the professional boundaries between medicine and nursing were fluid in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when both scientific knowledge and systems of nurse training were in flux. Through its focus on the role of medical practitioners in educating nurses in wound sepsis at four British hospitals between 1870 and 1920, this article attempts to further unite histories of medicine and nursing...
