The licensing exam for registered nurses in Canada has recently been changed from a Canadian developed, owned and delivered exam to the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) which originates from the United States. Rationale for this exam change focused on transitioning to a computer-based exam that has increased writing dates, with increased security, validated psychometrics, increased exam result delivery, and an anticipated decrease in expense to students. Concerns have arisen around the acceptance, implementation and delivery of this exam to Canadian nursing students that reflects the broad Canadian landscape of education and nursing practice...

Background Nursing students learn psychomotor skills in the nursing lab, removed from the context of real patient care. As a result, students experience challenges linking client conditions with pertinent assessments and the performance of skills in the clinical setting. To address this gap, we created an unfolding case study for the nursing lab that provides context and supports students to use assessment and theory to guide skill performance in practice. Method Faculty and student focus groups were conducted to elicit feedback on the use of an unfolding case in the nursing lab with novice nursing students as they transition to clinical practice...

To prevent the incidence of risks imputable to human error during the process of preparing the infusion pump, clarity in teaching and learning are required. Because traditional classroom training is difficult and time-consuming, the aim of the present study was to challenge the implementation of an e-learning education program for syringe pump use. The impact of the e-learning program was evaluated with 100 nurses between March and June 2016. The e-learning program significantly increased general baseline knowledge in syringe pump use; however, aspects of the program confused participants...

Research demonstrates that basic nursing care receives less attention in clinical settings and has become visually less prominent in nursing education curriculums. While much is known about the importance of preceptorship in clinical settings, little is known about how preceptors teach basic nursing care to students in a school simulation lab. This study explores the preceptors' perceptions of teaching basic nursing care to nursing students in the school simulation lab compared to clinical settings. Data were collected through focus group interviews and participant observation and analyzed by using qualitative content analysis...

The nursing profession needs leaders from across the temperament continuum. Educational environments are conducive to extroverts' learning but can have detrimental outcomes for introverted students. Introverted nurses avoid leadership positions because they have been taught extroversion traits are needed. This study explores perceptions of seven RN-BSN students who work as nurses and self-identify as introverts. Interviews with participants were conducted to ascertain perceptions of their educational experiences including preparation for leadership positions...

Clinical reasoning is the cognitive process that nurses use to gather and incorporate information into a larger bank of personal knowledge. This incorporated information guides therapeutic actions, and helps determine client care. Since the process guides therapeutic actions regarding client care, failure to use the process effectively leads to poor clinical decision-making, inappropriate actions, or inaction. Because of the criticality of this process, this paper presents an analysis of the literature that reveals the current state of the science of clinical reasoning, identifies gaps in knowledge, and elucidates areas for future research...

Abstract In most schools of nursing, students rate their satisfaction with courses and teachers at the end of the semester. Low response rates on these evaluations make it difficult to interpret the results. Students were incentivized to complete their course evaluations by adding 1-2 points to one test score in the course in exchange for 85 % or higher participation by the total cohort. Ongoing monitoring and communication to students by faculty during the process was critical to motivating students to complete course evaluations...

With the knowledge of psychoneuroimmunological responses and the known high stress levels of nursing students, as caring nurse educators, we have become ethically obligated to revise and re-vision our current nursing educational practices. Nurse educators should be motivated to create innovative and radical caring science curricular approaches, so that our nurses of the future are in turn supported in creating caring- healing sustainable bedside practices. This paper details the outcomes from an upper level yoga elective in an RN- BSN program...

Abstract Background:Nursing students face the challenge of developing a comprehensive understanding of the complex role of the registered nurse across various clinical settings. Frameworks such as the "ways of knowing", help students conceptualize and critically reflect upon important processes in their professional learning. However, the academic language used to describe frameworks can be challenging. PURPOSE: This manuscript has two purposes. First, to briefly describe the historical climate influencing the development of nursing as a discipline...
