OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether care in a hospital with more nurses holding at least a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is associated with lower mortality for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) undergoing surgery ADRD. DESIGN: Cross-sectional data from 2006-07 Medicare claims were linked with the Multi-State Nursing Care and Patient Safety Survey of nurses in 4 states. SETTING: Adult, nonfederal, acute care hospitals in California, Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania (N=531)...

BACKGROUND: Enrollment in RN-BSN degree completion programs has increased in the last several years, leading to a rise in program offerings online. There is limited research about the experiences of students who speak ESL. METHOD: Ten individual interviews were conducted incorporating van Manen's methodological steps for exploring the lived experience...

Although baccalaureate nursing programs often teach evidence-based practice (EBP), the effectiveness of targeted education to facilitate progressive EBP knowledge development is unclear. Rigorous, objective evaluation is vital for faculty to determine if students' EBP knowledge is advancing, stagnating, or declining as they progress toward program completion. In a study across multiple campuses of one traditional baccalaureate nursing program, EBP knowledge significantly improved between sophomore and junior levels, but not between junior and senior levels...

Predicting the native poses of ligands correctly is one of the most important steps towards successful structure-based drug design. Binding affinities (BAs) estimated by traditional scoring functions (SFs) are typically used to score and rank-order poses to select the most promising conformation. This BA-based approach is widely applied and some success has been reported, but it is inconsistent and still far from perfect. The main reason for this is that SFs are trained on experimental BA values of only native poses found in co-crystallized structures of protein-ligand complexes (PLCs)...

The 2010 "Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" report from the Institute of Medicine recommended that 80% of registered nurses (RNs) obtain a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree by 2020. Hospitals with BSN nurses have reduced morbidity and mortality. In 2014, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin-Extension launched the University of Wisconsin Flexible Option BSN (UW Flex BSN) as an additional model for BSN degree completion, adding to the in-person and online delivery models already being offered...

BACKGROUND: Empathy is an important clinical skill for nursing students, but it is a characteristic difficult to teach and assess. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of situated teaching on empathy learning among undergraduate nursing students. DESIGN: A cohort study with pre-post-test quasi-experimental design. PARTICIPANTS AND SETTING: The 2nd-year students were enrolled from two BSN programs. METHODS: The teaching program was completed over 4 months on the basis of experiential learning theory which integrated the following four elements: classroom-based role play, self-reflection, situated learning and acting...

Child bilateral striatal necrosis (BSN) is a rare and etiologically heterogeneous condition. An association with group A streptococcus (GAS) infection was previously reported in two cases of BSN in infancy and early childhood. We here report on a 7-year-old boy who developed chorea and dystonia 20 days after symptomatic recovery from Sydenham's chorea. Repeated brain magnetic resonance imaging scans, obtained before, soon after the onset of the post-Sydenham symptoms, and 1 year later were consistent with an evolution from bilateral striatal microbleeding to necrosis, and consequently reduced basal ganglia volume and enlargement of the frontal horns...

Community nursing clinical experiences are essential to the education of BSN prelicensure students. Because of limited traditional community clinical sites, faculty must identify innovative, nontraditional community sites that provide quality experiences. Faculty at Ohio University identified a unique opportunity to provide a multidisciplinary collaborative community clinical rotation in conjunction with the Center for Therapeutic Riding Center located at the Ohio Horse Park. Nineteen senior BSN students participated in a six-week community clinical experience caring for a variety of vulnerable populations participating in the therapeutic riding program...

BACKGROUND: Health care environments are fraught with fast-paced critical demands and ethical dilemmas requiring decisive nursing actions. Nurse educators must prepare nursing students to practice skills, behaviors, and attitudes needed to meet the challenges of health care demands. Evidence-based, innovative, multimodal techniques with novice and seasoned nurses were incorporated into a baccalaureate (BSN) completion program (RN to-BSN) to deepen learning, complex skill building, reflective practice, teamwork, and compassion toward the experiences of others...

: One of the recommendations of the landmark Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report was to increase the proportion of nurses with a bachelor of science in nursing or higher degree to 80% by 2020. In 2012, the American Organization of Nurse Executives was selected by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as the National Program Office for a new initiative-the Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) program-with the goal of identifying and developing the most promising strategies for creating a more highly educated nursing workforce...

Some nurse executives and academic nurse leaders believe that the issue of educational entry into professional nursing practice is an "old" issue. Nursing is the only healthcare profession that still does not require the minimum of a baccalaureate degree (BSN). It is time for nurse leaders to act: eliminate the multiple educational levels and require a minimum BSN degree for professional nurse practice.

Patient falls remain a leading adverse event in hospitals. In a study of 65 rural hospitals with 222 nursing units and 560 urban hospitals with 4274 nursing units, we found that geographic region, unit type, and nurse staffing, education, experience, and outcomes were associated with fall rates. Implications include specific attention to fall prevention in rehabilitation units, creating better work environments that promote nurse retention, and provide RN-BSN educational opportunities.

Clinical diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is sometimes difficult because various phenotypes have been identified. Here, we report a mutation in the bassoon (BSN) gene in a family with PSP-like syndrome. Their clinical features resembled not only those of PSP patients but also those of individuals with multiple system atrophy and Alzheimer's disease. The neuropathological findings showed a novel three + four repeat tauopathy with pallido-luysio-nigral degeneration and hippocampal sclerosis...

BACKGROUND: Students in 2-year registered nurse to Bachelor of Science in nursing (RN-BSN) programs usually work full-time and study part-time. Sleep disturbance, anxiety, and depression are known to be common health problems among these students.Prior research has described the effectiveness of auricular acupressure (AA) in reducing sleep disturbance and improving mood. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of using a 4-week AA program that adheres to a magnetic pellet on the shenmen acupoint on sleep quality, anxiousness, and depressed moods in nursing students with sleep disturbance...

OBJECTIVES: To test the efficacy of SBIRT education and training in changing undergraduate nursing students' attitudes about working with patients who have problems with alcohol and opioid use. DESIGN: A sample of 49 undergraduate nursing students were surveyed, using five subscales, at three time points...
