This article reports on a study designed to illuminate the motivation and future goals of RN to BSN degree completion students, specifically to identify whether RNs returning to an online completion program were doing so with the intention of continuing to practice at the bedside. The findings indicate that students are seeking further education for five reasons: 1) to gain entry into a nurse practitioner program, 2) to complete a master's degree program in general, 3) to find opportunities in management, 4) to assume a position as a nurse educator, or 5) to take on a leadership position in general...

Bacterial adherence to extracellular matrix proteins (ECMp) plays important roles during host-pathogen interaction, however its genetic regulation remains poorly understood. yloA of the model bacterium Bacillus subtilis shows high homology to genes encoding fibronectin-binding proteins of Gram-positive pathogens. Here, we characterized the regulatory network of YloA-dependent adhesive properties of the probiotic B. subtilis natto (Bsn). YloA-proficient, but not YloA-deficient, Bsn specifically bound to ECMp in a concentration-dependent manner and were proficient in biofilm formation...

Over 670,000 ADN- and diploma-prepared nurses will need to complete their BSN degrees to meet the Institute of Medicine's recommendation that at least 80% of registered nurses (RNs) be BSN-prepared by year 2020. Understanding motivators, barriers, and the transition experience for RNs to advance their degree will help educators and nurse leaders understand the importance of a partnership to educate and mentor RNs to pursue a BSN degree.

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Karen Baur, Bridget Moore, M Cecilia Wendler
The 2010 Institute of Medicine's Future of Nursing report posed recommendations to increase numbers of nurses with baccalaureate degrees or greater to 80%. This project engaged associate degree nurses in motivational interviewing focusing on finding and removing barriers to baccalaureate matriculation and completion. Results indicated a statistically significant influence on attitudes and return-to-school decision making and identified a qualitative theme: "I know more now… I could be a better nurse."

Many nursing schools and public schools are facing various challenges including a lack of resources. Schools of nursing strive to provide meaningful clinical experiences despite the challenge of a limited supply of quality placements. Similarly, public schools are expected to provide more nursing services at a time when many school nurses already are overloaded. For example, new state legislation placed additional responsibilities (regarding epinephrine auto-injectors and cardiac emergency response plans) on school nurses in Michigan...

The definition, implementation, and benefits support the value of service-learning for nursing education. However, accelerated RN-to-BSN programs may have difficulty requiring service-learning experiences. This article offers a biblical rationale for service with vulnerable populations and an example of how service-learning is implemented into the curriculum of an accelerated, nontraditional, online/onsite RN-BSN completion program at a Christian university.

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Rhonda G Schwindt, Angela M McNelis, Jon Agley
BACKGROUND: Tobacco use is the primary preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States, resulting in enormous health care expenditures. The burden of smoking is higher among disadvantaged populations, such as individuals with mental illness. As the largest group of health care providers, nurses must assume a leading role in tobacco control efforts to decrease the deleterious impact on health outcomes. METHOD: Investigators used a randomized control group design to assess the effectiveness of a theory-based tobacco education program on the perceived competence and intrinsic motivation of prelicensure BSN students (N = 134) to engage in cessation interventions with patients with mental illness...

The California Collaborative Model for Nursing Education (CCMNE) promotes seamless ADN-BSN academic progression as the most effective means by which the state can educate the numbers of BSN-prepared nurses needed in the future. Accelerated by state legislation and a national commitment to a higher-educated nursing workforce, the framework is sufficiently flexible to accommodate a variety of strategies that meet the intent of each Core Component, and can be implemented at local, regional, or state levels. Six percent of all current ADN students in California are dual enrolled in CCMNE BSN programs...

There is a critical need for leadership in quality and safety to reform today's disparate spectrum of health services to serve patients in complex health care environments. Nurse graduates of degree completion programs (registered nurse-bachelor of science in nursing [RN-BSN]) are poised for leadership due to their recent education and nursing practice experience. The authors propose that integration of systems thinking into RN-BSN curricula is essential for developing these much needed leadership skills. The purpose of this article is to introduce progressive teaching strategies to help nurse educators achieve the student competencies described in the second essential of the BSN Essentials document (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2009), linking them with the competencies in Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN; L...

Today, the workflows that are involved in industrial assembly and production activities are becoming increasingly complex. To efficiently and safely perform these workflows is demanding on the workers, in particular when it comes to infrequent or repetitive tasks. This burden on the workers can be eased by introducing smart assistance systems. This article presents a scalable concept and an integrated system demonstrator designed for this purpose. The basic idea is to learn workflows from observing multiple expert operators and then transfer the learnt workflow models to novice users...

REVIEW
Peggy Hewitt
Many associate degree nurses are returning to school for a baccalaureate degree in nursing. This has resulted in changes in admission processes and delivery options in RN-to-BSN programs. As the number of completion programs increases, so do the ways in which nurse educators create positive learning environments for these students. Opportunities exist for faculty to encourage and promote the success of the RN-to-BSN student.
