BACKGROUND: As rates of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) reached pandemic levels in early 2020, the need for intensive care unit (ICU) nurses with mechanical ventilator knowledge increased. In response to the pandemic, hospital systems with limited resources reported moving ICU nurse educators to direct patient care roles and reassigning non-ICU nurses to work in the ICU. With fewer resources to educate non-ICU nurses and many newly assigned nurses reporting feeling unprepared for work in the ICU, the need for an accessible and scalable introduction to ICU nursing became clear...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Elizabeth Coleman
BACKGROUND: Traumatic experiences can adversely affect a child's health. These effects often continue into adulthood, especially when trauma is not addressed. Although the evidence shows benefits with addressing trauma earlier in life, trauma-informed care of children is underused in primary care. Health care providers (nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians) report gaps in knowledge of trauma-informed care and in their comfort level addressing trauma in primary care. METHOD: This project investigated the use of continuing education sessions to increase health care providers' knowledge and readiness to implement trauma-informed care into their practice...

BACKGROUND: Primary care serves as an entry point for many patients to access health care services, especially those who reside in medically underserved areas. Because an initiative exists for family nurse practitioners (FNPs) to fill primary care gaps in medically underserved areas, they must be included in educational strategies to provide quality behavioral health care within their scope of practice. METHOD: An academic-practice partnership was used to provide FNP residents the opportunity to learn to work within their scope of practice in a behavioral health integration model...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Emily Marguerite Rios, Karen Lucas Breda
BACKGROUND: Early identification of sepsis among neurosurgical critical care patients is a significant challenge because of the many possible confounding variables that lead to altered mental status in this specific patient population. Nurses' knowledge, attitudes, confidence, and practices related to the early identification and management of sepsis are crucial to patients' survival. METHOD: This evidence-based intervention project implemented continuing education for neurosurgical critical care nurses on the early signs and symptoms of sepsis and the management of sepsis according to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) Guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Although the recruitment of internationally educated nurses (IENs) seems to be an effective strategy to sustain a diversified nursing workforce, challenges with transition to practice continue to be documented in the literature. Prelicensure bridging programs purport to facilitate practice readiness; however, IENs who complete these programs also experience difficulties. Little is known about tailored workplace-based bridging programs. This scoping review maps out our current understanding of IEN integration and education strategies implemented within acute care settings and identifies areas for further research...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Christine Maihle, Avery M Anderson, Victoria von Sadovszky
BACKGROUND: Due to stigma and mistreatment, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) patients and their families often face barriers to accessing and receiving equitable health care. Pediatric settings are not immune to this health inequity, yet there is limited literature to address it with pediatric nurses. METHOD: An evidence-based education program on the care of LGBTQ patients was delivered electronically to pediatric nurses. Using a pre- and posttest design, knowledge and attitudes regarding care of LGBTQ patients were collected via online questionnaires...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
April Felton, Kristy Cheshire
BACKGROUND: Approximately 10% of newborns require resuscitation at delivery or during a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) stay. Neonatal intensive care unit caregivers competent in providing neonatal resuscitation decrease perinatal mortality and improve neonatal outcomes. Infrequency of resuscitation events, lack of repetition, and inexperience leave caregivers feeling un-prepared for emergency situations. There is a need for educational strategies to maintain competency and increase confidence and comfort level...

BACKGROUND: Skill decay refers to the loss of skills and knowledge resulting from lack of consistent use. Among certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), skill decay can lead to negative results. One method that has been shown to mitigate skill decay is low-dose, high-frequency (LDHF) simulation. There is a gap in the LDHF simulation literature regarding CRNAs to determine its effectiveness in reducing skill decay or increasing confidence levels. METHOD: This study used a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest follow-up design...
