"It's just common sense": Preconceptions and myths regarding fundamental care.

Fundamental care has come under increased scrutiny due to high-profile reports globally of poor nursing care. The reasons for these documented care failures are widely debated, with some scholars identifying issues with how fundamental care is valued within healthcare systems and by nurses. During focus groups designed to evaluate a fundamental care education intervention, we identified a perception commonly held by first-year pre-registration (pre-licensure) students that appeared indicative of a de-valuin...

Nursing students' perceptions of a clinical learning assessment activity: 'Linking the puzzle pieces of theory to practice'.

The interplay of developmental factors that impact congruence and the ability to thrive among new graduate nurses: A qualitative study of the interplay as students transition to professional practice.

Research suggests the stressors leading to burnout may begin in the undergraduate experience, making the high attrition rates of new graduate nurses highly relevant to undergraduate nurse educators. Through a qualitative research study performed in B.C, Canada, eight novice nurses underwent three in-depth interviews to explore the interplay of factors that enabled and disabled them from thriving upon entry into practice. Prominent undergraduate nursing curriculum factors that were significant in the ability...

The attitudes of nursing students and clinical instructors towards reporting irregular incidents in the medical clinic.

Despite efforts to increase patient safety, medical incidents and near misses occur daily. Much is still unknown about this phenomenon, especially due to underreporting. This study examined why nursing students and clinical instructors underreport medical events, and whether they believe that changes within their institutions could increase reporting. 103 third- and fourth-year nursing students and 55 clinical instructors completed a validated questionnaire. The results showed that about one-third of the in...

Performance based situation awareness observations in a simulated clinical scenario pre and post an educational intervention.

This study compared final year nursing students' error rate and use of strategies to maintain SA when undertaking specific nursing care in a simulated clinical environment pre and 10 weeks post a planned SA education intervention. Students were observed using a Performance Based Situation Awareness Observation Schedule (PBSAOS) undertaking two tasks in a simulated clinical environment pre and post the SA education. For task 1, post educational intervention, there was no significant increase in the error rat...

Prevalence and retention status of new graduate nurses with special support needs in Japan.

Early resignation of new graduate nurses is a global concern. Tendencies of developmental disorders or special support needs may contribute to the early resignation. A national mail survey about new graduate nurses with special support needs was conducted in Japan in 2013. A modified battery developed for a national survey of school children with special educational needs was used. The questionnaire was completed by the nurse managers of the participating hospitals who supervised the nurses. Among the 500 h...

Using emotion recognition to assess simulation-based learning.

Simulation-based assessment relies on instruments that measure knowledge acquisition, satisfaction, confidence, and the motivation of students. However, the emotional aspects of assessment have not yet been fully explored in the literature. This dimension can provide a deeper understanding of the experience of learning in clinical simulations. In this study, a computer (software) model was employed to identify and classify emotions with the aim of assessing them, while creating a simulation scenario. A grou...

The use of a theatre workshop in developing effective communication in paediatric end of life care.

Being able to communicate effectively is an essential skill for all nurses. Communication in paediatric end of life care can be challenging for both the student and lecturer as it is a rare experience and challenging to teach. Innovative approaches to teaching communication skills such as role play, simulation and drama have been used; however there is a dearth of literature examining the use of drama in this specialist context. The aim of this study was to explore the effectiveness of a novel workshop in t...

Lecturers' reflection on the three-part assessment discussions with students and preceptors during clinical practice education: A repeated group discussion study.

Assessment of students' learning and achievement requires active involvement of participating students, preceptors and lecturers. The lecturers have overall responsibility for both the content of the assessment and students' learning. The aim of the present study was to investigate lecturers' reflections on the mid-course discussion and final assessment that are part of nursing students' clinical practice education. The design was descriptive and had a qualitative approach. Repeated group discussions were u...

Factors affecting nursing and midwifery students' attitudes toward social media.

With the advancement of technology, social media use increases day by day, especially among university students. This descriptive and correlational research was conducted with the aim of investigating attitudes of nursing and midwifery students towards social media in terms of certain variables. The population of the research comprised students studying at the nursing and midwifery department of a health college (N = 336), and the sample of the research constituted students who were chosen using acciden...

Factors developing nursing students and novice nurses' ability to provide care in acute situations.

Nurses play an important role in detecting, interpreting and deciding appropriate actions to take in order to care for patients in acute situations. Nevertheless, novice nurses are reported as feeling unprepared to provide appropriate care in acute situations. In order to address this issue, it is important to describe factors in nursing education and first year of practice that enable nurses to provide appropriate care in acute situations. 17 novice nurses were interviewed in this qualitative study. A phen...

Evaluation of a collaborative testing approach to objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) in undergraduate nurse education: A survey study.

Increasing nursing students' knowledge of evidence-based hand-hygiene: A quasi-experimental study.

Aim of study was to evaluate the effects of a multi-component intervention on nursing students' knowledge of evidence-based hand-hygiene. A quasi-experimental design was used. Nursing students (N = 146) from two universities of applied sciences (experimental group n = 107, control group n = 39) completed an instrument based on international clinical guidelines related to hand hygiene that consisted of 17 Likert-scale items. Data were collected at three time points (baseline, after university-bas...

Cultivating compassion in nursing: A grounded theory study to explore the perceptions of individuals who have experienced nursing care as patients.

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 experi...

Readiness of newly licensed associated degree registered nurses to screen for domestic violence.

Lack of education and training have been identified as common barriers nurses experience in implementing domestic violence screening. The reasons for the barriers are poorly understood. Participants were interviewed to determine if and how they screen for domestic violence, which patients are screened, and how pre-licensure education and current workplace training has influenced this practice. An exploratory qualitative design guided by Constructivist Grounded Theory was used. Eligible participants were con...
