Although compassion is considered integral to nursing, the ongoing reality of this traditional philosophy has been challenged due to emerging patient reports of care experiences reflecting a lack of compassion. Political and professional guidance reaffirms compassion as an enduring philosophy of contemporary nursing practice, but provides limited insight into what compassion involves. To address this knowledge gap, a constructivist grounded theory study was undertaken with eleven participants who had experienced nursing care as patients across a range of contexts, exploring what they perceived compassion to involve...

Nursing students experience physiology as a challenging subject to learn. A learner-centred approach could enhance their learning. This study explored nursing students' experiences of actively studying anatomy and physiology off-campus within a flipped classroom using various digital tools. The data from focus group interviews and students' reflective notes were analysed using a combination of systematic text condensation and activity systems analysis. In the students' activity system, three tensions were identified: tension between students' expectations and the teaching design, tension between a wish for more frequent attendance and being on their own and tension between the schedule and time needed...

Evidence based midwifery education and practice are fundamental to assure high quality care of childbearing women, also with complications. In Poland, midwifery education includes aspects of participation in the abortion. A cross-sectional study was designed to describe the attitudes towards abortion at the beginning and at the end of students' university education. The study was aimed to verify change of attitudes throughout the course of the university education. Most of the students approved abortion if the pregnancy constitutes a threat to woman's health or life, results from a rape, or whenever the fetus presents with a lethal defect...

Clinical reasoning is proposed to represent cognitive processes, skills and decision-making aspects of nursing practice and is important for quality care. It has been suggested that the reasoning processes should be practiced during education to develop decision-making competence among nurses. The aim of the study was to explore and describe clinical reasoning processes at different times during specialist ambulance nurse education and among specialist ambulance nurses. Nurses were invited to participate: at initiation of specialist education (n = 19) and during the final weeks of specialist education (n = 17)...

Communicating with healthcare providers is a core tenant in the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses and Institute of Medicine teamwork and collaboration competency but remains a major concern for pre-licensure nursing students and novice nurses. Pre-licensure nursing students rarely have opportunities to practice interprofessional communication skills with other healthcare providers even though lack of this skill competency may lead to patient harm. This article explores the feasibility of using story-guided online deliberate practice sessions as an educational strategy to improve students' interprofessional critical communication competency...

Using an online survey, this study explored the impact of participation in unpaid clinical placements on the financial wellbeing of 160 nursing students attending an Australian university. The research found that the majority of respondents struggle financially during clinical placements, yet are financially adequate or secure outside of semester or during normal periods of study. Increased transport costs and loss of income are the most significant financial stressors during this time, with additional meals, work-appropriate clothing, purchasing additional resources and materials, and childcare costs other causes of financial stress...
