BACKGROUND: Increasing numbers of undergraduate nursing students speak English as an additional language. Clinical placements can be difficult for many of these students and their clinical facilitators. The causes of challenges are often reported to be students' lack of English language ability or, for some students, learning styles that are not suited to Western style education. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this research was to investigate how clinical facilitators' pedagogic practices in hospital settings enabled or constrained the learning of students for whom English was an additional language...

This paper presents the final phase of a national project exploring grading of practice in programmes leading to registration as a midwife in the United Kingdom. The aim was to develop a generic framework for grading practice, enhancing standardisation while enabling flexibility in application of current and new educational standards. A mixed method on-line survey considered existing practice assessment tools, factors contributing to robust and reliable assessment and perceptions of two assessment tools developed by the research team: a 'Lexicon Framework' and 'Rubric', which were tested through scenarios...

Implications for successive employment after general nursing education programmes - a multi-perspective study Abstract. BACKGROUND: The passage of the new education law will restructure the entire nursing education system in Germany, including the broad implementation of two former pedagogical pilot programmes - a generalist nursing programme and an academic nursing programme. So far, little research has been done to determine whether these new programmes, particularly the generalist nursing programme, equip students with suitable competencies...

People living with Parkinson's disease (PWPD) in rural areas have limited access to local condition-specific care. This paper examines the healthcare preferences of PWPD living in rural areas and how a community-driven initiative to employ a movement disorder nurse (MDN) functioned to address barriers to health services access. A qualitative design facilitated an understanding of how interactions with the health system shaped PWPD and their carer's experiences of living in a regional community. A total of 42 semi-structured interviews were conducted 6-9 months apart; 19 interviews with PWPD and 23 dyadic interviews...

The quality of students' experiences in an education environment directly affect learning outcomes. In an applied profession such as nursing, students undertake work-integrated learning in unpredictable health settings where multiple influences interact. Understanding students' perspectives with a valid instrument is the first step in improving learning environments and maximizing learning outcomes. It is important that language and cultural nuances are accounted for when instruments are translated. This paper reports translation and psychometric properties of the Vietnamese language version (V-CLEI) of the modified English language Clinical Learning Environment Inventory (CLEI) (Newton et al...

Registered Nurses (RNs) are regulated health professionals who are educated and accountable for safe medication administration (MA). Binding their practice are standards, policies, procedure and legislation. MA competence is taught and assessed during professional pre-registration education programs. However, different philosophies, theories and models are used by education providers making curriculum content disparate and competency frameworks diverse. Additionally, healthcare contexts are increasingly complex and clinical environments unpredictable...

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...

Diabetic foot ulceration is a major complication associated with high morbidity. Little evidence exists on which interventions are effective at preventing ulceration. Participants who are adherent to self-care behaviours have significantly better outcomes. Motivational interviewing is an intervention that has been used successfully for conditions where adherence is important, such as reduction of obesity and HbA1c levels. A systematic review was conducted to determine whether motivational interviewing is effective at improving adherence for the prevention of Diabetic Foot Ulceration...

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...

AIM: To provide a review of empirical research investigating how compassion is expressed by nurses and received by patients in hospital settings. BACKGROUND: Compassion is viewed as an important and fundamental part of a health professional practice. Universally, reports from both media and government agencies have addressed perceived deficits of compassion in healthcare with nurses accused of a lack of compassion. Research into compassion to date has largely focused on the problematic nature of compassion such as burnout, fatigue and other negative personal and work-related outcomes...
