The purpose of this study was to explore Rwandan nursing clinical instructors' (CIs) experiences of structural and psychological empowerment. CIs play a vital role in students' development by facilitating learning in health care practice environments. Quality nursing education hinges on the CI's ability to enact a professional role. A descriptive qualitative method was used to obtain an understanding of CIs empowerment experiences in practice settings. Kanter's Theory of Structural Power in Organizations and Spreitzer's Psychological Empowerment Theory were used as theoretical frameworks to interpret experiences...

Fiona Cuthill
The concept of social justice is making a revival in nursing scholarship, in part in response to widening health inequalities and inequities in high-income countries. In particular, critical nurse scholars have sought to develop participatory research methods using peer researchers to represent the 'voice' of people who are living in marginalized spaces in society. The aim of this paper is to report on the experiences of nurse and peer researchers as part of a project to explore the experiences of people who find themselves destitute following the asylum process in the UK...

BACKGROUND: More and better interprofessional practice is predicated to be necessary to deliver good care to the patients of the future. However, universities struggle to create authentic learning activities that enable students to experience the dynamic interprofessional interactions common in healthcare and that can accommodate large interprofessional student cohorts. We investigated a large-scale mandatory interprofessional learning (IPL) activity for health professional students designed to promote social learning...

Portfolios have been advocated in nursing education to help student link theory and practice. In this study, we document the development of a mobile e-portfolio-based system, which was used to improve nursing education. The e-portfolio-based system has the advantage of allowing students to record, assess, and reflect upon their learning whether at school, a clinical site, or at home. This e-portfolio system was field tested in a 3-week psychiatric nursing practicum session involving 10 female students who were enrolled in a junior nursing college...

BACKGROUND: Nurses have a moral obligation to ensure holistic care of patients, inclusive of the spiritual dimension. However, there seems to be a void in the teaching and learning of spiritual care in nursing curricula. Despite the South African Nursing Council being in favour of holistic nursing, there are no measures in place to ensure implementation of spiritual care, hence its practice is not standardised in nursing education in South Africa. Currently, the undergraduate nursing curriculum does not provide clear direction on how spiritual care in nursing should be integrated and the reason for this is not clear...

Simulation, as a conduit to apply both adult and constructivist learning theory, is an important educational modality in nursing professional development. The use of simulation is well studied in the academic setting, but evidence supporting its use in the practice environment is lacking. This educational quality improvement project provides a road map for designing and implementing simulation to meet the educational needs of practicing nurses.
