PURPOSE: Among research-focused nursing doctoral (PhD) programs in the United States, the traditional dissertation format has recently given way to a series of publication-ready manuscripts, often bookended by introduction and conclusion chapters. To help programs make decisions about the use of these formats, this study undertook a national survey of programs offering PhDs in nursing. The purpose of this study was to explore the advantages and disadvantages of the traditional format versus manuscript option for dissertations among nursing PhD programs in the United States...

OBJECTIVE: Despite its near complete eradication in resource-rich countries, rheumatic heart disease remains the most common acquired cardiovascular disease in sub-Saharan Africa. With a ratio of physicians/population of 1 per 10,500, including only 4 cardiologists for a population of 11.4 million, Rwanda represents a resource-limited setting lacking the local capacity to detect and treat early cases of strep throat and perform lifesaving operations for advanced rheumatic heart disease...

Background: A doctoral degree, either a PhD or equivalent, is the academic credential required for an academic nurse educator position in a university setting; however, the lack of formal teaching courses in doctoral programs contradict the belief that these graduates are proficient in teaching. As a result, many PhD prepared individuals are not ready to meet the demands of teaching. Methods: An integrative literature review was undertaken. Four electronic databases were searched including the Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), PubMed, Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) and ProQuest...

BACKGROUND: Inadequate antenatal care (ANC) can lead to missed diagnosis of danger signs or delayed referral to emergency obstetrical care, contributing to maternal mortality. In developing countries, ANC quality is often limited by skill and knowledge gaps of the health workforce. In 2011, the Mentorship, Enhanced Supervision for Healthcare and Quality Improvement (MESH-QI) program was implemented to strengthen providers' ANC performance at 21 rural health centers in Rwanda. We evaluated the effect of MESH-QI on the completeness of danger sign assessments...

When a midwifery diploma-level programme was introduced in 2010 in Bangladesh, only a few nursing faculty staff members had received midwifery diploma-level. The consequences were an inconsistency in interpretation and implementation of the midwifery curriculum in the midwifery programme. To ensure that midwifery faculty staff members were adequately prepared to deliver the national midwifery curriculum, a mentorship programme was developed. The aim of this study was to examine feasibility and adherence to a mentorship programme among 19 midwifery faculty staff members who were lecturing the three years midwifery diploma-level programme at ten institutes/colleges in Bangladesh...

Nursing professional development practitioners regularly provide future nurses, and those advancing their nursing expertise, with mentorship and guidance on academic progression. However, we often wonder how we should approach advisement and what we should include in our discussions with those who have sought our expertise. An Association for Nursing Professional Development task force explored the many facets related to academic advisement and produced a must-have discussion paper as a resource for nursing professional development practitioners everywhere...

BACKGROUND: Limitations in healthcare worker (HCW) capacity compound the burden of dual TB and HIV epidemics in sub-Saharan Africa. To fill gaps in knowledge and skills, effective continuing profession development (CPD) initiatives are needed to support practicing HCWs reach high standards of care. e-learning opportunities can bring expert knowledge to HCWs in the field and provide a flexible learning option adaptable to local settings. Few studies provide insight into HCW experiences with online CPD in the developing country context...

BACKGROUND: Tremendous variability in EBP persists throughout the United States even though research supports that implementation of EBP leads to high-quality cost-effective care. Although the first set of EBP competencies for nurses was published in 2014, the state of EBP competency in U.S. nurses is currently unknown. AIMS: The purposes of this study were to: (a) describe the state of EBP competency in nurses across the United States; and (b) determine important factors associated with EBP competency...

AIM: The aim of the study was to evaluate a mentorship program for adjunct clinical faculty. BACKGROUND: The nursing faculty shortage has been cited as the primary reason for decreased student enrollments. Clinical adjuncts hired to teach to fill this shortage need a competency-based orientation and formal mentorship. METHOD: We piloted a live version of our previously online continuing education program for adjunct clinical faculty. The live program of eight modules based on three nursing competencies provided core knowledge and guidance in applying nursing education principles in clinical settings...
