Migrant nurses have reported difficulties adapting to their new culture and providing culturally sensitive care for people with dementia. However, to date no studies have explored the impact of student nurse's cultural heritage on their beliefs and understanding of dementia.
Following the investigation into the Mid Staffordshire Hospital (United Kingdom) and the subsequent Francis reports (2013 and 2015), all healthcare staff, including students, are called upon to raise concerns if they are concerned about patient safety. Despite this advice, it is evident that some individuals are reluctant to do so and the reasons for this are not always well understood.

Providing intercultural learning experiences that assist students to develop cultural awareness and culturally safe nursing care is an important part of nursing education in Canada and Denmark. However, providing opportunities for students to study and travel to another country can be challenging given the strict requirements to meet entry-to-practice competencies and the timing of clinical placement courses. In an attempt to increase opportunities for students, an innovative strategy called Globally Networ...
During their clinical learning experience, students are exposed to the nursing profession as a powerful structural reality, experiencing the so-called professional socialisation, a process recognised as the basis of professional identity.

Failing to fail nursing students in clinical assessments is an internationally acknowledged issue that necessitates thorough examination. Despite the gravity of 'mis-grading' nursing students, current research exploring this subject is limited. Understanding the experiences of assessors when faced with an underperforming student may help illuminate some of the broad issues associated with failure to fail.
There is a continuing shortage of organs for transplantation purposes worldwide. Determining why this is a recurring problem is necessary as organ transplantation is a highly successful life saving measure. It is possible that ambivalence is key to this shortage.
Clinical placement is a fundamental aspect of student learning and skill development across healthcare disciplines. However, participation in clinical placements can also present significant risk to students. This systematic literature review sought to examine the range of risks and hazards encountered by students across healthcare disciplines during their clinical placements.
Clinical practicums are regarded as one of the most anxiety-producing aspects of the curriculum by nursing students. Practicum-associated anxiety has negative impacts on learning, performance, and well-being. Little is known about what makes final year nursing students anxious during their practicum experience and the impact of clinical and student characteristics on their level of anxiety.
Internationally, most countries recognize the right of the student to receive assistance from teachers and tutors. The Tutorial Action Plan is a teaching tool that aims to promote academic, personal, and professional development in students.

Accurate research on nursing student attitudes is dependent on the av...
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are innovative courses that have aroused great interest in the field of nursing education. However, most studies have focused only on the benefits of MOOCs rather than the issues and how to ameliorate them.

Providing scientific evidence supporting social emotional learning is also important for developing the social emotional learning skills of nursing students.
Knowledge development, and how student nurses learn to be nurses, is essential in nurse education and has implications for quality of care. There is a lack of research concerning how student nurses' knowledge development is expressed through narratives and how they deal with challenges in patient situations in professional learning.
This study was developed to assist academics and curriculum designers to understand the perspectives and expectations of students when designing a program of study and inclusive of students as partners. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the perceptions and experiences of students enrolled in the Bachelor of Nursing (BN).
One of the main challenges faced by nursing educator is using the best strategy for students to learn. In MAES© (Self-learning methodology in simulated environments), the students are guided by a facilitator, and perform their simulations in a knowledge-specific area in a self-directed learning manner.
This study aimed to explore the experiences of early career academic nurses as they shape their career path in one Australian university.
Non-traditional students entering nursing programmes at university often experience difficulties with the academic literacy requirements of their courses, in particular academic and reflective writing. Levels of student anxiety may also be affected by other issues including the pressures of managing work, family and study commitments.

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.
