"Nursing education"

Vibeke Oestergaard Steenfeldt, Minna Therkildsen, Jette Lind
BACKGROUND: The balance between lessons prepared to challenge the talented students and students who find the courses difficult is a recurrent dilemma in the Danish nurse education. Challenging talented students while pitching the learning appropriately for less able students is a recurring dilemma in education. In Danish nursing courses, the gap between these two kinds of student becomes particularly obvious in fifth semester theoretical courses. METHOD: To provide knowledge of students' experiences of challenging courses a phenomenological approach was adopted...

As a practice, nursing centers on patients' bodies and how they live the experience of illness and disability through their bodies (embodiment). International nursing studies conducted on the topic of body care primarily include theoretical studies, whereas empirical studies remain sparse. The aim of this study was to describe nurses' perceptions of the role of their bodies and the bodies of patients during body care. This study used a descriptive phenomenological study based on Husserl's philosophical perspective...

BACKGROUND: Different concepts have been used to date (e.g. non-nursing tasks, organizational work) to define tasks performed by clinical nurses other than nursing care. However, the true essence of nursing work is still poorly understood mostly because nurses are lacking an appropriate lexicon to describe their practice. AIMS: To describe non-nursing tasks as experienced by nurses, exploring antecedents and consequences as perceived in daily practice. METHODS: A descriptive qualitative study from 2015 to 2016...

The aim of this study was to describe the perceptions of nurse preceptors of nursing students and new graduate nurses with learning disabilities in clinical settings. Learning disabilities pose potential challenges in nursing education, especially in clinical settings when working with preceptors. Preceptors (N = 166) who attended a state-wide preceptor workshop responded to an electronic survey that assessed their perceptions. Four concepts were explored: preceptor perceived level of preparedness; preceptor perceived confidence in implementation of their role; preceptor beliefs regarding the potential of learners with learning disabilities; and preceptor agreement with provision of accommodations for learners with learning disabilities...

Background/problem: Stigma and stigmatization are important concepts in the area of mental health and illness. Nursing and nurse education are continuously examining ways to understand and address the stigma toward people with a lived experience of mental illness. While the negative influence of stigma is understood, the variables that influence these behaviors are emerging. An area may provide insight into aspects that influence stigmatization of pre-registration nurses is motivation. Previous research has illustrated that individual motivation can significantly predict and influence work-related behaviors and actions across a range of work settings...

BACKGROUND: Nursing students have limited opportunities to experience end-of-life care, so it is difficult for them to learn how to deliver it empirically. The use of simulations with standardized patients may be a way to provide realistic experience of end-of-life care for nursing students. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of end-of-life care simulations with standardized patients in improving the knowledge, skill performance and self-confidence of undergraduate nursing students...

Despite the growth of health science research, there remains a persistent concern over the lack of appraisal of research results and the failure of research uptake into practice and policy (Grimshaw, Eccles, MLavis, Hill, & Squires, 2012). Journal publications and conference presentations are essential for research dissemination within the research community, but are insufficient for improving care standards (Straus, Tetroe, & Graham, 2013). For years continuous medical and nursing education and other professional development initiatives have been employed to increase research utilization and uptake in practice (Davis et al...

AIM: Sepsis is a significant and time-sensitive clinical concern for patients who present to Emergency Departments (EDs). Existing guidelines do not define nurses' roles in managing sepsis. This study explored ED nurses' experiences and perceptions around recognising and responding to patients with sepsis, and their awareness of sepsis screening and prognostic tools. The knowledge and insights gained from this study may be used to inform local and international ED policies, and enrich nursing educational packages that may be used to improve quality of patient care and patient outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Cultural consciousness is a central element of purposeful and appropriate health care delivery. Research suggests that cultural consciousness is strengthened through self-reflection, dialogue about race, and experience within other cultures. METHOD: Two cohorts of senior-level nursing students participated in a 1-week cultural immersion service-learning (CISL) experience in an isolated, rural American Indian community. Student reflections and White Racial Identity Attitude Scale (WRIAS) data were collected and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Trauma has significant effects on individuals' health. Nurses are well-positioned to deliver trauma-informed care; however, there is a lack of trauma nursing education. The development of trauma education in nursing is just beginning; therefore, it is unclear what details should be integrated into nursing courses. METHOD: CINAHL, PsycINFO, MEDLINE, PubMed, and Google Scholar databases were searched to identify theoretical and empirical literature regarding trauma-information educational practices in health sciences...

BACKGROUND: Sound nursing clinical judgment is at the core of competent and safe client care. New graduate nurses face increasing challenges that underscore the importance of investigating how nurse educators teach and measure nursing students' abilities to make clinical judgments. This article presents the National Council of State Boards of Nursing-Clinical Judgment Model (NCSBN-CJM) and discusses the use of the model. METHOD: A multidisciplinary team conducted a qualitative comparative analysis of the relationships between the NCSBN-CJM and the three leading frameworks for providing clinical judgment education to entry-level nurses...

This installment of the Methodology Corner discusses the important role of research and quality improvement project reporting guidelines in the development of a field's evidence base. Several prominent guidelines, all with relevance to nursing education researchers, are described. Research and quality improvement reporting guidelines can be useful to researchers and quality improvement leaders long before the dissemination stage of a project and should be consulted from the earliest stages of a project. Consulting these guidelines earlier, rather than later, can increase the likelihood that studies and quality improvement reports will contribute meaningfully to the literature to which nurse educators look when making evidence-informed decisions...
