Undergraduate nursing programs typically include students with limited 'on-campus' time who need learning resources that are flexible, technologically appropriate, remotely-accessible (mobile smart devices), and above all, engaging. This has presented academics with challenges surrounding institutional security firewalls, password-access requirements, intellectual property/ownership and staff/student privacy. To overcome these challenges a collection of evidence-based YouTube videos, posted on the Biological Sciences YouTube Channel, supported by the Biosciences in Nurse Education, and underpinned by Benner's pedagogical framework, were developed with the intention of moving students from novice to competent clinical bioscience users...

BACKGROUND: In 2011, the Institute of Medicine recommended that 80% of RNs have a bachelor's degree or higher by 2020. Progress toward this recommendation has been slow. PURPOSE: This paper presents a model that projects whether the 80% recommendation can be met within a 10-year period and estimates the impact of education changes that might accelerate progress. METHODS: A projection model for 2016 to 2026 was created using a "stock-and-flow" approach...

Stronger evidence on the value of new graduate nurse transition programs is needed to justify the cost and warrant expansion of these programs to more health systems. The aim of this integrative review was to critically analyze published research on the relationship between new graduate nurse transition programs and patient safety outcomes. Limited evidence was found on actual safety improvement; rather, transition programs have predominately measured the development of competency as a process outcome variable for improving patient safety...

Providing nursing students with appropriate clinical practice during their undergraduate programme is critical to ensuring that graduates meet the competency requirements to gain registration as a nurse. In response to the predicted nursing workforce shortage, universities have been significantly increasing the enrolment of undergraduate nurses into Bachelor of Nursing courses. This has placed a demand on the availability of clinical placements and often universities struggle to find appropriate places. In this study, a Bachelor of Nursing course incorporated an Integrated Clinical Learning Model (ICLM) for the first time during a mental health placement...

BACKGROUND: Nursing interns are newly graduate students with limited real-life work experiences. These novices are in the process of enhancing their competencies in the delivery of quality nursing care with the guidance of the preceptors. Hence, it is relevant to examine the impact of preceptorship, as a teaching strategy, among nursing interns during their preceptorship years in clinical settings. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to determine if the preceptorship program has provided the nursing interns the needed education in enhancing clinical competence...

Professional communication and the dissemination of expertise are expected of nurses prepared at the doctoral level. However, little emphasis is placed on opportunities for professional writing in most clinically focused doctoral programs for nurse practitioners. This innovative extracurricular writing project provided a professional writing experience for novice writers, helping them gain the confidence needed to achieve dissemination beyond the educational setting in the form of a self-published e-book. This project could be used for many other types of writing in nursing...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a serious and costly complication of surgery. Many cases of health care-associated VTE could be prevented with the use of evidenced-based interventions. Perioperative nurses are in a position to advocate for patients by assessing each patient's risk for VTE and implementing preventive measures, such as administering anticoagulants as ordered and correctly applying graduated compression stockings and intermittent pneumatic compression devices. The updated AORN "Guideline for prevention of venous thromboembolism" provides guidance to perioperative team members for developing and implementing a protocol for VTE prevention...
