An important component of the academic faculty role is dissemination of knowledge through manuscript publication. Ways to facilitate this scholarship are important to academic career progression. One approach is a writing retreat, which is a structured time to write and receive peer review of writing occurring over multiple, sequential days. This paper reports on an annual multi-day writing retreat originally consisting of five days and four nights. This was a mixed method descriptive evaluation. Fifty-three of the 56 participants from the seven writing retreats from 2010 to 2016 were contacted via email to complete an on-line quantitative and qualitative survey...

As a profession, nursing is obligated to disseminate knowledge by publishing research in the professional literature. Beyond producing scholarly work for publication, nurses need writing skills to complete doctoral dissertations and scholarly projects, and to succeed in obtaining funds for new nurse-directed business ventures. Ultimately, good writing skills are essential for the future of the nursing profession. In this article, we describe the critical role of writing in nursing, and offer a practical 10-point strategy for improving the writing ability of individual advanced practice nurses who need to improve their writing skills...

Direct Entry Master of Science in Nursing programs that incorporate Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) education are relatively new in the United States. Little is known about the transition to practice experience of Master's prepared CNL graduates. This evaluation explored how Direct Entry Master of Science in Nursing CNL graduates perceived their transition to practice experience three years post-graduation. All graduates (n = 21) of an inaugural Direct Entry CNL program were invited to be interviewed 3 years after graduation; 16 (76%) opted to participate...

PURPOSE: The current study assesses baccalaureate nursing students' attitudes toward health care teams and evaluates if these attitudes have changed after completion of a nursing course focusing on health care systems from an interprofessional perspective. METHOD: A convenience sample of 116 undergraduate nursing students in a required interprofessionally-focused course was invited to participate...

In order to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse patient population, nursing schools around the United States have been trying to recruit future nurses from a variety of racial/ethnic backgrounds, with limited success. To date, the literature does not describe how to develop culturally appropriate engagement models that can successfully transform minority nursing students into nurse researchers and leaders. Thus, the purpose of this article is to describe a promising research and leadership program for underrepresented undergraduate students entitled, "EMBRACE - Engaging Multiple-communities of BSN students in Research and Academic Curricular Experiences"...

The purpose of this paper is to explore the nurse leader's role in understanding the impact of American colonialism - specifically racism, a product of colonialism - as a key determinant in shaping the education of nursing students and its influence on practicing nurses. American values have been grounded in its colonialism and continue to be influential in shaping beliefs, attitudes, behaviors, and policies within the United States. Like racism, American colonialism depends on its perceived death for its survival - this is its paradox...

Many schools of nursing have employed strategic planning as resources have become limited and demands for organizational efficiency have increased. Although the process of developing a strategic plan has been described in the literature, there is little information about how to implement and evaluate a plan. In this paper, we provide an overview of one nursing school's strategic plan development and the implementation and evaluation processes. Our paper provides a detailed description of the leadership framework used to shape, implement and evaluate the plan and makes recommendations for their application to other schools engaging in strategic planning...

Nurse entrepreneurship remains a foreign concept in education, forcing nurses to turn to graduate degrees in business and finance or otherwise, learn 'as they go'. Before addressing the question 'Why does nursing curricula exclude business content and skill development?', one must evaluate the perceived educational gaps of current nurse entrepreneurs; the purpose of this integrative review. An initial total of 2485 articles was generated in September 2016, of which 15 methodologically-diverse studies, published between 1977 and 2015, were appraised using the QATSSD tool...

Incidence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) is increasing on campuses. Despite growing media attention and athletic program protocols to address the issue, many are unaware of the potential effects such an injury can cause. This may be true for nursing faculty who teach or advise students recovering from TBI. This article will examine relevant aspects of injury and recovery, as well as ways faculty can advocate for and support students who struggle during what can be a protracted period of recovery. Students' symptoms while recovering from TBI may diminish cognitive, emotional, and physical resources...

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people make up 4% of the adult population in the United States; however, it is unclear if there is sufficient material in nursing textbooks for students to learn how to provide care for sexual minority populations. A content analysis of two commonly used health assessment textbooks was completed to identify material that prepared nurses for LGBT patient interactions. Topics such as gender neutrality, same-sex partners, and other terms referring to LGBT persons were considered LGBT content...

A key aspect is the need to actively engage students in learning, an approach shown to improve outcomes. METHOD: Four innovative teaching modalities were incorporated into a baccalaureate curriculum, aligned to the NSSE indicators, and targeted an area of the curriculum where active student participation had the potential to improve the learning experience...
