On July 3, 1928, the Wonsan Labor Union established the Wonsan Laborers' Hospital in Seoku-dong, Wonsan for the purpose of reducing medical consultation fees for its members. The union's efforts to improve the welfare of its members include the establishment of an educational institute, a consumers union, a barbershop, and a relief department. The Laborers' Hospital, which began with ten wards, was led by a team of two doctors, one midwife, two pharmacists, and four nurses. The two doctors were Cheol-sun Cha and Jeong-kwon Lee, and the midwife/nurse was Sun-jeong Kim...

BACKGROUND: Novice nursing practitioners (NNPs) often struggle to make the transition to fully competent professionals. We sought to determine the impact of an interactive, situated learning workshop on a participant's clinical competence. OBJECTIVES: This work aimed to improve the clinical competence, promote the self-confidence, and reduce the number of work-related stressors of NNPs. METHODS: We randomly allocated 31 newly graduated NNPs into interactive situated and simulated teaching (ISST) and non-ISST groups, which were perceived as the homogeneity of the 2 groups based upon no significant difference at age, education level and work units...

Study findings suggest ways to better address tobacco use. ABSTRACT: Background: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' initiative Healthy People 2020 targets tobacco use, including smoking during pregnancy, as a continuing major health concern in this country. Yet bringing the U.S. Public Health Service's 2008 clinical practice guideline, Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence, into routine prenatal care remains challenging. Our previous nurse-managed intervention study of rural pregnant women found no significant cessation effect and significant discordance between selfreported smoker status and urinary cotinine levels...

The American Nurses Association (ANA) is responsible for the contract between society and the nursing profession, including the nursing scope and standards of practice. In 2015, an ANA workgroup produced Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 3rd Ed during a time of social change and an increase of culturally and ethnically diverse consumers. Subsequently, a subset of workgroup members and an invited transcultural nursing expert led to the creation of the new Standard 8: Culturally Congruent Practice, describing nursing care that is in agreement with the preferred values, beliefs, worldview, and practices of the healthcare consumer...

High preceptor turnover and mandates for cost efficiency in a rapidly changing healthcare environment require innovative approaches for developing and supporting nurse preceptors. Responding to new organizational strategic and cost containment initiatives, a quality improvement project was initiated that combined several evidence-based approaches to align traditional processes and programs. The resultant preceptor development program decreased costs and standardized processes. It also showed improved learning and preceptor satisfaction and increased educational, networking, and recognition opportunities...

Neutropenic sepsis remains a time critical and potentially fatal complication of systemic anti-cancer therapy. A target 'door to needle' time of one hour for first dose empirical intravenous antibiotics continues to be promoted nationally. A baseline audit (June 2011) highlighted shortfalls in care in the Belfast Trust, with only 15% of patients receiving antibiotics within sixty minutes. A multi-professional group within the Trust was established to try and initiate the improvements in neutropenic sepsis recognition and initial management that were urgently required...

The emergence of the trained nurse as a new profession for women coincided with the transformation of hospitals from refuges for the sick and poor into treatment facilities. The hospital was an apt setting for learning nursing's fundamentals, but the domestic demands of the setting soon took precedence over nursing education. Nursing superintendents struggled to honor the right of pupil nurses to an education over the might of the hospital's demands. The 20th anniversary of the Trained Nurse Movement in 1893 proved the decisive moment when nursing superintendents created professional associations and gathered the nursing diaspora into a coherent force...

Across many levels of nursing education, mentored experiences are an essential part of learning. To enhance understanding, learning, and comfort for those new to professional roles, experienced and skilled professionals provide motivation while teaching professional skills, demonstrating technical competence, and displaying behavior expected of a professional. Educator preparation topics such as curriculum development, evaluation, and lesson planning are not typically included in PhD programs, leaving PhD students feeling unprepared to teach (Hudacek & Carpenter, 1998; Ivey, 2007)...

BACKGROUND: Hand hygiene is the single-most important nursing home (NH) infection control measure. We piloted a multifaceted hand-washing/surface cleaning intervention in 5 NHs. Our aims were to assess the feasibility of implementing this intervention by assessing staff participation, satisfaction, hand-washing compliance, and whether the intervention was associated with reductions in infection rates, new antimicrobial orders, or overall hospitalization rates. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, pair-matched pilot intervention in 10 Colorado NHs to reduce infections for all NH residents from October 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016...
