AIM: We explored the impact of gender role orientation (masculinity and femininity) on student nurses' caring behaviour and critical thinking. BACKGROUND: Caring and critical thinking are at the core of professional nursing education. Previous studies revealed inconsistent findings regarding the impact of gender roles on caring behaviour and critical thinking. DESIGN AND METHODS: We employed a quantitative correlational study. Nursing students (N = 449; female = 310, male = 139) who had at least had one month of clinical practice experience were recruited from four universities in Taiwan...

Baccalaureate nursing programs have been on the increase in Japan in the past few decades. However, the 18 year old population is on the decline. While nursing programs have been increasing, the number of high school graduates has decreased. The paradoxical phenomenon has started to affect nursing education, including shortages in faculty members and in clinical sites. The purpose of the present study was to identify actual or potential problems as a result of so many nursing schools having opened in the past few decades, and to make recommendations for nurse educators in Japan...

BACKGROUND: It is important that education on palliative care begin early in prelicensure nursing education because of the complex care needs of patients requiring end-of-life care. PROBLEM: Nursing students often lack confidence and skills in providing quality care for these patients. APPROACH: Nursing students' attitudes on end-of-life care were assessed using the Frommelt Attitudes Toward Care of the Dying scale. Students were tested as sophomores, then again as seniors, in a nursing program where the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) curriculum had previously been integrated...

BACKGROUND: Simulation-based learning was developed to enable nursing and medical students to obtain clinical experience in a safe and controlled environment. The extent to which students concentrate in simulation situations can influence their educational outcomes. However, there are no studies yet on the factors that influence flow in simulation practice. Understanding which factors influence flow might help in achieving better simulation-based learning outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to identify the factors related to flow in simulation practice, including stress, self-esteem, and collective efficacy...

PURPOSE: Many nurses are trained inadequately in emergency preparedness (EP), preventing them from effectively executing response roles during disasters, such as chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) events. Nurses also indicate lacking confidence in their abilities to perform EP activities. The purpose of this article is to describe the phased development of, and delivery strategies for, a CBRNE curriculum to enhance EP among nursing professionals. The New York City (NYC) Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University's Earth Institute led the initiative...

Many nurses in Taiwan use quantitative research for their master's thesis. However, qualitative research explores humankind in depth providing a more holistic approach relating to nursing. The purpose of this study was to explore the rationale postgraduate students used to choose the research methods for their masters' theses in Taiwan. A descriptive qualitative research design was used. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews of sixteen nursing students studying a master's from seven different Universities in Taiwan in 2016...

BACKGROUND: Peer learning experiences have been reported in previous qualitative studies, however individual findings could limit practical leverage due to small sample size. Thus it is necessary to integrate invaluable findings from various qualitative studies to consider appropriateness and acceptability of peer learning in professional nurse education. OBJECTIVE: To identify and synthesize qualitative evidence of peer learning experiences of undergraduate nursing students so as to understand their perceptions on peer learning experiences...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes self-management education is essential at the time of diagnosis. We developed the New-Onset Diabetes Educator (NODE), an animation-based educational web application for type 1 diabetes mellitus patients. OBJECTIVE: Our hypothesis is that NODE is a feasible, effective and user-friendly intervention in improving diabetes self-management education delivery to child/caregiver-dyads at the time of diagnosis. METHODS: We used a pragmatic parallel randomized trial design...

This review is based on a Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals-sponsored presentation, "The Delicate Balance of Managing Oxygen Treatment in Neonates," delivered by Amy R Koehn, PhD, NNP-BC, at the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) 33rd Annual Conference, held in Providence, Rhode Island on October 11, 2017. In addition to focusing on the potential risks associated with exposing newborn tissues to episodes of lower (hypoxic) and higher (hyperoxic) than normal concentrations of serum oxygen, the current guidance for target saturation ranges and methods of tissue oxygenation measurements in neonates was reviewed...

BACKGROUND: One of the most principal key aims of nursing education is to promote nursing students' and nurses' critical thinking. Therefore, nursing education needs to develop an appropriate curriculum and use effective instructional strategies for critical thinking promotion. Flipped classroom is a teaching method which substitutes individual learning for group learning in a dynamic, interactive environment where the teacher guides students to understand and use concepts. OBJECTIVES: The present study aimed to compare the effects of traditional lecture and flipped classroom on Iranian nursing students' critical thinking disposition...

BACKGROUND: Simulation is recommended as a substitute for clinical practice among nursing students. No current guidelines exist regarding the accurate percentage of simulation hours versus clinical practice hours. Comparing simulation with clinical practice is needed so that both strategies can be optimally combined in nursing education. The 29-item Clinical Learning Environment Comparison Survey (CLECS) is validated to compare the traditional and simulated clinical environment in meeting nursing students' learning needs...

Nurses teach, work, and conduct research in an increasingly hostile sociopolitical climate where health inequities persist among marginalized communities. Current approaches to cultural competency do not adequately equip nurses to address these complex factors and risk perpetuating stereotypes and discrimination. A theory-driven emancipatory approach to cultural competency will instead lead to lasting change and uphold the core nursing value of commitment to social justice. This article explicates key tenets of critical race, postcolonial feminist, and intersectionality theories and then applies them, using an emancipatory approach to cultural competency that can reshape nursing education, research, and practice...

Thus, the main purpose of this study was to assess the effective clinical teaching behavior (ECTB) as perceived by students and nursing instructors. Methods: Facility based cross-sectional descriptive study design was conducted among 178 participants. Data were collected using pre-tested and self-administered questionnaire...

PURPOSE: This study aimed (1) to examine the current status of psychological distress experienced by neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurses in supporting bereaved families, (2) to identify the factors associated with psychological distress, and (3) to understand the professional characteristics of nurses experiencing high psychological distress by comparing the study results with those of pediatricians. METHODS: We sent questionnaires to 64 NICUs. The psychological distress of nurses was classified into two groups based on the frequency of psychological distress experienced and analyzed using the χ2 test and Fisher's exact test...

BACKGROUND: The use of telehealth to provide care to millions of patients who have difficulty accessing care through traditional means is growing exponentially. Nurse educators must prepare students to meet the challenge of managing this mode of care delivery.

BACKGROUND: Nursing faculty plays a central role in facilitating service learning experiences, yet little is known about their perceptions of service-learning. METHOD: Whit-temore's and Knafl's method for integrative review was used to analyze sources from CINAHL, ERIC, MEDLINE Complete, ProQuest LLC, and ScienceDirect. RESULTS: Literature about nursing faculty perceptions of service-learning was scarce. Therefore, a thematic analysis was completed on 17 diverse sources regarding general faculty perceptions...
