#1
Delois Meyer Laverentz, Sharon Kumm
As concept-based nursing education gains popularity, there is little literature on how to sustain quality after initiation of the curriculum. Critical appraisal of concepts in a university program revealed varying definitions, attributes, and exemplars resulting in student confusion. The Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) cycle for continuous quality improvement was used for concept evaluation. The goals of the evaluation project were: 1) to develop common definition and attributes for concepts and 2) to develop horizontal and vertical leveling of exemplars to build on prior student learning...

Bobbi J Palmer, Kathy Ham
Beginning nursing students typically report anxiety, low self-confidence, and difficulty transferring theoretical knowledge to the clinical setting prior to their first clinical experience. To address these issues, first-semester faculty in a prelicensure, undergraduate nursing program created a collaborative simulation experience (CSE). Implementation prior to the first clinical day provided real-life exposure to patient care, enhanced the transfer of knowledge, decreased anxiety, promoted self-confidence, and allowed faculty to identify students' strengths and weaknesses...

The study aim was to evaluate the effects of concept-based learning by comparing ATI Nursing Education test scores for a traditional curriculum and a concept-based curriculum. The study also examined effects of the concept-based curriculum on critical thinking and motivation. No statistically significant differences were noted in ATI scores for the two groups; students neither agreed nor disagreed that they were engaged in critical thinking but did agree with motivation statements. Faculty were surveyed about their approach to teaching...

Flipping the class has been touted as a method of increasing student participation and improving learning outcomes. In this study, nursing students were introduced to the flipped classroom. They were instructed to listen to narrated PowerPoint presentations before class and be ready to participate in case studies that would enhance their understanding of important concepts. When comparing student test scores before and after flipping the classroom, we found a statistically significant increase of 8.04 points after the change in instruction...

BACKGROUND: In nursing, non-technical skills are recognized as playing an important role to increase patient safety and successful clinical outcomes (Pearson and McLafferty, 2011). Non-technical skills are cognitive and social resource skills that complement technical skills and contribute to safe and efficient task performance (Flin et al., 2008). In order to effectively provide non-technical skills training, it is essential to have an instrument to measure these skills. METHODOLOGY: An online search was conducted...

Most nursing programs lack curriculum on substance use. This project evaluated 3 didactic instructional methods for teaching baccalaureate nursing students about screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment for substance use. In-person, asynchronous narrated slides and interactive online instructional methods were all effective in developing students' competency; however, active learning methods (in-person and interactive online course) were more effective in changing students' attitudes about their role in screening and intervening for drug use...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To explore the perceived unfairness experienced by student nurses during their undergraduate clinical placements. BACKGROUND: It is important that student nurses feel supported by practice staff during their clinical placement education experiences. However, it has been reported that learners can feel ignored, unsupported and bullied by others in the clinical environment and this has a detrimental effect on their learning. It is important to understand the student nurse perspective and explore ways in which their feelings of belongingness might be enhanced in the clinical area...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac misconceptions are common among healthcare professionals. The development of professional knowledge is considered an essential component of nursing education. Nurses, regardless of their grade, skills, and experience, should be updated with information so as to be able to rectify their misconceptions, as these could affect patient health outcomes. As the literature evaluating the cardiac knowledge and misconceptions of nursing students is sparse, a study of the subject seems warranted...

This article describes how one very large, diverse school district developed a Student Acuity Tool for School Nurse Assignment and used a logic model to successfully advocate for additional school nurse positions. The logic model included three student outcomes that were evaluated: provide medications and procedures safely and accurately, increase the number of students with a medical home, and increase the number of students with chronic illness that receive case management. Pairing a staffing formula with an evaluation plan that focuses on student outcomes and the priorities of the school district provides a strong case that school nurses are essential and that they contribute to student success...

INTRODUCTION: Medical educators have been concerned that medical students may decline in empathy for patients during the course of their training, based on studies measuring clinical empathy using psychometrically strong self-report measures. Clinical empathy is a complex construct, incorporating attitudes toward patients but also other components, such as professional detachment. Triangulation of extant measures with instruments based on nonreactive methods could provide a better understanding of whether and how physician attitudes toward patients may be changing during training...
