Most multiple sclerosis (MS) patients eventually suffer from mobility impairment, and thus it is critical that walking disability in MS be accurately assessed. The six-minute walk test (6MWT), a reliable MS measure, is traditionally used to determine the distance covered in six minutes using a standard protocol. With the availability of body sensor networks (BSNs), researchers are interested in leveraging BSN data for finding new gait assessment anchors for improved separability performance. Further, current methods for gait assessments are insufficient since assessments are absolute, performed by comparing outcomes to the statistical norms established from diverse patient data despite natural inter-patient variability...

BACKGROUND: In 2015, the Institute of Medicine's Committee for Assessing Progress on Implementing the Future of Nursing recommendations noted that little progress has been made in building the data infrastructure needed to support nursing workforce policy. PURPOSE: This article outlines a case study from North Carolina to demonstrate the value of collecting, analyzing, and disseminating state-level workforce data. METHODS: Data were derived from licensure renewal information gathered by the North Carolina Board of Nursing and housed at the North Carolina Health Professions Data System at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill...

The ageing of the population, and their increasing wish of living independently, are motivating the development of welfare and healthcare models. Existing approaches based on the direct heath-monitoring using body sensor networks (BSN) are precise and accurate. Nonetheless, their intrusiveness causes non-acceptance. New approaches seek the indirect monitoring through monitoring activities of daily living (ADLs), which proves to be a suitable solution. ADL monitoring systems use many heterogeneous sensors, are less intrusive, and are less expensive than BSN, however, the deployment and maintenance of wireless sensor networks (WSN) prevent them from a widespread acceptance...

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."

Nursing students are largely excluded from travel-abroad studies because of demanding curricula, lack of time, and cost. A poll was conducted and distributed to bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) and master of science in nursing (MSN) students who participated in 8-day observational trips. Questions were framed around the themes of cultural awareness, global health care perspective, translating theory into practice, and personal and professional growth. The results were compared with traditional long-term study-abroad outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Arm slings are often used in clinical practice to support the hemiplegic arm aiming to prevent or treat glenohumeral subluxation. Evidence supporting the corrective effect of slings on subluxation is scarce and long-term studies are lacking. AIM: To determine both the immediate and long-term effect on acromiohumeral distance using the Actimove® sling (BSN medical SA-NV, Leuven, Belgium) and Shoulderlift (V!GO, Belgium) and to determine the effect of slings on pain and passive range of motion of the shoulder in stroke patients with glenohumeral subluxation...

BACKGROUND: Teaching-learning experience involving more than one health care discipline is a topic of great interest in the health sciences. Few such experiences are known in which medical students taught nursing students a clinical skill. METHOD: The authors evaluated the effect of fourth-year medical students teaching the correct use of a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) to bachelor of science nursing (BSN) students. An fourth-year medical student investigator taught BSN students the correct use of an MDI in individual, private educational sessions, approximately 10 minutes in length, in a large health sciences center...

: Colleges of nursing are challenged to identify innovative, efficient, and effective mechanisms to expand enrollment in prelicensure programs. This objective of this project was to identify whether a prelicensure nursing program that is both accelerated and on-line is as effective as a traditional face-to-face program, in terms of graduation rates and National Council Licensure Exam pass rates. METHOD: This analysis of 1,064 students compared demographic and outcomes data between students in a state university's college of nursing who were enrolled in an accelerated, fully on-line bachelors of science in nursing (BSN) program and the traditional on-campus BSN program...

In October 2010, the Institute of Medicine released the report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, which called for 80% of all nurses to have a BSN degree by 2020. This expectation was overwhelming and, in the beginning, I felt like it was an insult. I have had my associate degree in nursing for more than 20 years. All I could ask was: How can I have worked so many years and now be considered a subpar nurse? Regardless, the fact remained that I needed to return to college and obtain a higher degree...

Upward educational mobility of licensed practical nurses (LPNs) is important for their professional development. For the nursing profession, this upward mobility increases workforce diversity. To address the paucity of programs accepting the LPN's education, a team of 6 BSN and LPN nurse educators, backed by 2 universities, developed a seamless LPN-BSN program. This article documents the process, including a needs assessment, curriculum development, admission criteria, implementation, lessons learned, and outcomes...

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.

With the advent of nano-technology, medical sensors and devices are becoming highly miniaturized. Consequently, the number of sensors and medical devices being implanted to accurately monitor and diagnose a disease is increasing. By measuring the symptoms and controlling a medical device as close as possible to the source, these implantable devices are able to save lives. A wireless link between medical sensors and implantable medical devices is essential in the case of closed-loop medical devices, in which symptoms of the diseases are monitored by sensors that are not placed in close proximity of the therapeutic device...
