This study evaluated the impact of the Star Model of Knowledge Transformation as a framework for course design on graduate-level nursing students' perceived EBP competencies. METHOD: Data were collected from 2012 to 2017 (N = 544). Repeated-measures ANOVA was used to analyze pre- and postassessment data over time...

The potential for harm to patients related to initiation and maintenance of continuous dialysis therapy by the bedside nurse led to the development of a novel method to educate nurses new to the skill of continuous renal replacement therapy. [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2019;50(2):59-60.].

The evidence is growing that social and emotional skills are better predictors of academic and career success than IQ. The brain, once believed to be hard-wired during childhood, has been found to be neuroplastic throughout the life span. Understanding the elements of social and emotional learning is a critical competency for all educators seeking to foster academic and career success for their students.

The continuous performance-improvement model known as Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) was used within the Approved Provider Unit of the North Carolina Division of Public Health to create an audit tool and process for assessing continuing nursing education courses. During the development of the audit tool, gaps and process inefficiencies were identified when documentation was reviewed for adherence to the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation's 2015 Criteria for Continuing Nursing Education and local provider unit requirements...

International health team volunteers frequently arrive at service sites with considerable lack of confidence and knowledge gaps because of poor preparation. Preservice orientation has been shown to improve knowledge, confidence, and competence, but current practices fall short of meeting most needs. This health care improvement project was aimed to improve self-confidence and cultural and global health competence using a virtual preservice orientation format. The virtual innovation significantly narrowed the difference in confidence between new and experienced team members...

BACKGROUND: The diffusion of telehealth into hospital care is still low, partially because of a lack of telehealth competence among nurses. In an earlier study, we reported on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) nurses require for the use of telehealth. The current study describes hospital nurses' confidence in possessing these telehealth KSAs. METHOD: In a cross-sectional study, we invited 3,543 nurses from three hospitals in the Netherlands to rate their self-confidence in 31 telehealth KSAs on a 5-point Likert scale, using an online questionnaire...

Communication with others is a core human imperative; this is especially true in health care. Individuals with intellectual disabilities often face daunting challenges in both health literacy and communicating their health needs and questions. Education for professionals in specialized communication is critical in improving care for their clients with intellectual disabilities. To address this issue, an educational framework, ID-COMMUNICATE, was created to guide improved interactions between health care providers and clients with intellectual disabilities and was further developed into a continuing education program...

BACKGROUND: To improve the quality of patient care, the Institute of Medicine has called for eliminating barriers to academic progression for nurses. Despite this call, nurses who matriculate from institutions that lack national nursing-specific accreditation are denied admission to advanced degree programs. METHOD: Within an online RN-to-baccalaureate nursing (BSN) program, the performance of students who matriculated from institutions lacking discipline-specific accreditation was compared with student performance representative of programs holding discipline-specific accreditation...

Nurses are lifelong learners who are always seeking ways to improve and perfect their skills. Test item writing is a skill that must be practiced and perfected over time. Often, nurses in a clinical role are promoted to the role of nurse educator without receiving training on how to write good test questions. This article presents nine tips for item writing to help nurse educators and clinical educators to create better test questions [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2019;50(1):12-14.].

The Institute of Medicine's Future of Nursing report recommends an increasingly higher educated RN workforce. Community colleges play a critical role in educating entry-level nurses to meet the needs of underserved regions in the United States. The National Education Progression in Nursing is introduced as a champion for academic progression, and the dual admission/concurrent enrollment model is highlighted.

Since 2006, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended routine HIV screening in primary care settings for people ages 13 to 64, regardless of individual risk factors. However, an extensive body of research has identified several barriers to primary care providers' (PCPs) adherence to the CDC recommendations. Employing a pre-postintervention design, this study provided an assessment of barriers among 11 PCPs and implemented an evidence-based continuing education program adapted to the specific individual barriers they identified...
