Nurses and other health care professionals are in a unique position to shift the paradigm around migration debates. As caregivers and advocates for patients and other providers, nurses are crucial to the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities. This is especially true for migrants, including increasingly vulnerable refugee populations around the world. As negotiations surrounding the Global Compact for Migration and Global Compact on Refugees come to a close, nurses' roles are becoming more apparent...

Current approaches to addressing the problems families face when navigating complex service systems on behalf of their children rely largely on state or nationally driven efforts around the development of systems of care (SOCs). However, operationalizing meaningful family involvement within SOCs remains a challenge, with little attention paid to the role of personal social support networks (PSSNs). Specifically, risk factors related to the variations in the social connectedness of family social support networks are difficult to identify, assess, and track over time...

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...

METHODS: The ethnographic design has been used to describe, examine, and evaluate the policies and procedures that are implemented to prevent and control hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) in the medical ICU in King Abdullah University Hospital. In-depth semi-structured interviews with 23 participants supported by nonparticipant observation and document analysis were carried out to collect triangulated data...

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...

Registered nurses are choosing to further their educational careers by seeking a bachelor's of science degree online (RN-to-BSN). The impetus for choosing the online delivery method is related to the ability to sign into a Learning Management System during times that are advantageous to their hospital work schedules, family, and daily living activities. The RN-to-BSN online option degree requires a Critical Care/Advanced Health Care Course as part of their curriculum plan; therefore, the article presents an overall view of the critical care course, the theoretical underpinnings for progression to the online delivery method, and examples of a module required by the critical care course...

It is important for health-care providers to be comfortable in providing end-of-life (EOL) care to critically ill patients and realizing when continuing aggressive measures would be futile. Therefore, there is a need to understand health-care providers' self-perceived skills and barriers to providing optimum EOL care. A total of 660 health-care providers from medicine and surgery departments were asked via e-mail to complete an anonymous survey assessing their self-reported EOL care competencies, of which 238 responses were received...
