Teaching holistic nursing using clinical simulation: A pedagogical essay  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Major nursing organizations that set standards for nursing practice and education emphasize the holistic nature of nursing practice. The patient-centered approach to holistic healing requires specialized knowledge, skills, and attitudes that move the student from focusing on the patient as an individual with physiological and/or psychological problems to a person on a healing journey. Strategies that foster the development of such knowledge, skills, and attitudes are necessary to prepare students to provide holistic care. Clinical simulation, an active teaching/learning strategy is effective for teaching holistic nursing practice. This pedagogical essay presents a holistic nursing clinical simulation scenario and grading rubric.

[Standardized nursing language: the bedrock of computerized nursing records].  

Science.gov (United States)

Taiwan is currently in the initial phase of implementing a nursing information system. In order to successfully achieve effective communications across dispersed and diverse populations, care settings, and locations, standardized language within the nursing profession must be established and promoted. However, standardized nursing language is not well known among Taiwanese nurses. This article introduces the definition of standardized nursing language, the importance of standardized nursing language to the nursing profession, and the relationship between nomenclatures and standardized nursing language. Additionally, twelve language standards recognized by the American Nurse Association and the ICNP (International Classification for Nursing Practice) developed by International Council of Nurses are briefly introduced. In Taiwan, although cross-mapping of ICNP terms with handwritten nursing records has been done, further research must be done to reach practical conclusions. The authors hope this article will help Taiwanese nurses learn more about standardized nursing language and, consequently, contribute more toward the implementation of the nursing information system in Taiwan.

Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice?  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Use of a standardized nursing language for documentation of nursing care is vital both to the nursing profession and to the bedside/direct care nurse. The purpose of this article is to provide examples of the usefulness of standardized languages to direct care/bedside nurses. Currently, the American Nurses Association has approved thirteen standardized languages that support nursing practice, only ten of which are considered languages specific to nursing care. The purpose of this article is to offer a definition of standardized language in nursing, to describe how standardized nursing languages are applied in the clinical setting, and to explain the benefits of standardizing nursing languages. These benefits include: better communication among nurses and other health care providers, increased visibility of nursing interventions, improved patient care, enhanced data collection to evaluate nursing care outcomes, greater adherence to standards of care, and facilitated assessment of nursing competency. Implications of standardized language for nursing education, research, and administration are also presented.

The teaching effectiveness of standardized patients.  

Science.gov (United States)

Teaching nursing students therapeutic communication skills begins in the classroom and extends to the clinical environment. The usual method of instruction consists of random patient encounters observed by faculty and measures of competence that rely on paper-and-pencil tests. Using standardized patients (SPs) offers an alternative approach to the traditional method of teaching. Standardized patients are individuals who have been carefully trained to present an illness or scenario in a standardized, unvarying manner. This pilot study compared use of SPs with the usual method of instruction in a class of undergraduate nursing students. Results indicated that students who participated in the SP method overwhelmingly described the experience as positive, creative, and meaningful. No significant differences were found between the two groups on measures of interpersonal skills, therapeutic communication skills, and knowledge of depression PMID:16629278

Teaching caring in nursing: a needs assessment  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Despite the fact that caring is the heart of nursing, there is growing evidence that nurses are not as effective as they ought to be in their caring role. This signifies that more attention needs to be given to the teaching of caring. The aim of this study was to pave the way to initiate the process of research on teaching caring, by suggesting priority areas. The needs assessment design was used for the study. Five steps were involved to achieve the aims. The first was to explore the nature and meaning of caring as presented in the literature. The second was to review completed research on aspects of caring within the nursing context. The third was to investigate the position of caring in the present nursing education system. The fourth was to investigate ways of promoting the teaching of caring as advocated in the literature and the final step based on inferences made from the first four steps was to suggest priority areas for research on teaching caring in nursing.

Jordanian nurses' job satisfaction and intent to stay: comparing teaching and non-teaching hospitals.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aims of this study were to identify variables of Jordanian nurses' job satisfaction and intent to stay, compare the phenomena of interest in teaching and non-teaching hospitals, and correlate the two concepts of nurses' job satisfaction and intent to stay. A convenience sample of 433 nurses was obtained from three teaching hospitals and two non-teaching hospitals. Nurses were "neither satisfied nor dissatisfied" and were "neutral" in reporting their intent to stay at their current jobs. Nurses who were working in non-teaching hospitals reported higher job satisfaction and intent to stay rates than those working in teaching hospitals. Nurses' job satisfaction and intent to stay were at the borderlines, which require the immediate attention of nursing and hospital administrators. Nurses' job satisfaction and intent to stay, particularly in teaching hospitals, have to be promoted; thus, interventions have to be effectively initiated and maintained at the unit and organizational levels.

Training for teaching professional nurses in the view of teachers  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A vast number of technical and professional nursing courses were introduced in Brazil in the last decade, motivated mainly by the PROFAE - Qualification Project for Nursing Area Workers, from the Brazilian Health Ministry. Therefore, a new work field was opened for recent graduated nursing bachelors, who became professors in these technical and professional courses. This study, aligned with Practical Pedagogic research and its relation with educational formation, focused on the Standard School in Campo Grande/ MS nursing teachers' performance, analyzing their pedagogic academic and practice background. This study has a qualitative and descriptive-explanatory approach, and focuses on a sixteen teachers group, graduated in different institutions, including bachelors and licensed nurses. The data was collected through a questionnaire organized in three stages, focusing on the formation, professional practice, and the teacher's perception regarding its teaching experience. By analyzing the content obtained, the information extracted suggested that almost all teachers had a very general formation, and that they did not consider enough the initial formation as a preparation for a satisfactory performance in teaching, mainly because of a lack of classes about teachers development. The professional and educational experience, along with the permanent education possibility were considered decisive elements to the teaching learning development. In addition, it was evident that teachers, specially the ones in the beginning of their careers, were usually influenced by a professor who had a significant impact along their formation. Although teaching is seen as a salary complement, part of the survey participants considered it as a source of professional satisfaction, more effective than the nursing practice, due to its autonomy. It is also noticeable the difficulty this group has in building a professional identity, due to the lack of an adequate professional teaching preparation. Few teachers express a more elaborate comprehension of the "competencies education", however it is possible to identify some change indicators, due to their interest in learning the constructivist method, the globalized education and the professional competencies development. These are continuous change factors, probably stimulated by the paradigm changes in the nursing education and in the advances this movement has promoted in the legislation area.

Assessing Teaching Med-Nursing Physics Replacing Introductory Physics in Nursing College  

Science.gov (United States)

The introductory physics is taught by a physics teacher who integrated nursing technique with the text in the nursing format, in nursing language and demonstrating in class the operation of nursing instruments, with lecture support from a nursing teacher. This is teaching med-nursing physics. The null hypothesis is rejected under the alternative hypothesis that teaching med-nursing physics is superior than teaching traditional introductory physics in the nursing college of the study university, by a traditional trained physics teacher. The study design is a case group comparing with 6 groups of controls, who from 24and 5-year-discipline systems are taking or took the introductory physics. The superiority testing is relied on the accessment form that has 10 questions on the introductory physics, and 10 questions on nursing technique. The SAS procedure of GLM has been employed for the 1-way ANOVA on the 20 accessment questions, under scoring systems.

Knowledge and Compliance of Standard Precautions among Student Nurses  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Student nurses are often exposed to various infections during their clinical exposure. Knowledge and compliance with standard precautions is essential in the prevention of health care infections and protection of patients as well as medical workers from exposure to infectious agents. This investigation assessed the knowledge and degree of compliance regarding standard precautions among student nurses in a government university in Samar, Philippines. A cross-sectional study was adopted for this investigation and data were collected over a period of one month from April 8 to May 7, 2012. Fifty eight student nurses who were enrolled in the university were all asked to complete the self report questionnaires regarding standard precautions. Vast majority (89.65% of the student nurses have good knowledge (m = 14.45/19 and high compliance (m = 3.59 of standard precautions. The use of mask has the highest degree of compliance (m = 3.95 while the use of eye goggles has the lowest degree of compliance (m = 3.19. Findings suggest no significant association between knowledge and compliance with standard precautions. Teaching approaches must be geared towards intensifying further the compliances especially with the use of other protective equipments such eye goggles and gloves. Furthermore, environment that models and promotes standard precaution practices should be developed by the faculty.

Patients’ experiences of being nursed by student nurses at a teaching hospital  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: Teaching hospitals are medical institutes at which most nursing education institutions provide their students with practical nursing experience. Although the focus of care is the patient, attention is sometimes focused more on the nursing students rather than on the patients who are undergoing care at the hands of both the nursing professionals and students. However, proper nursing care should also take into account the experiences of patients during the care process in the health facility. Objectives: The study had three objectives: to describe the experiences of patients nursed by student nurses in a teaching hospital in the Western Cape; to identify patterns in the experiences of patients receiving patient care from student nurses; and to analyse aspects of the experiences that may need further attention for the training of student nurses. Method: A descriptive phenomenological approach was used to explore the experiences of patients nursed by student nurses. Participant selection took place purposively from different wards of the identified teaching hospital, and thematic saturation was achieved at 10 participants. The data were collected through in-depth interviews and analysed using thematic content analysis. Results: Three main themes were discovered after data analysis: methods of identification of student nurses by patients; positive perceptions of student nurses by patients; and negative perceptions of student nurses by patients. Conclusion: The findings will inform the clinical supervisors and educational institutions of aspects of the nursing training of student nurses that need improvement and those that require enforcement.

[The application of creative thinking teaching in nursing education].  

Science.gov (United States)

Nursing education is increasingly expected to cultivate nursing student creative abilities in line with general Ministry of Education promotion of greater creativity within education and the greater leeway for creativity won domestically for nurses by professional nursing organizations. Creative thinking has been named by education experts in the United States as the third most important goal of nursing education. However, nursing students in Taiwan have been shown to test lower in terms of creativity than students enrolled in business management. Leaders in nursing education should consider methods by which to improve the creative thinking capabilities of nursing students. Articles in the literature indicate that courses in creative studies are concentrated in the field of education, with few designed specifically for nursing. The teaching of constructing creative thinking is particularly weak in the nursing field. The purpose of this article was to review literature on education and nursing in order to explore current definitions, teaching strategies, and evaluation approaches related to creativity, and to develop a foundation for teaching creativity in nursing. The authors hope that an appropriate creative thinking course for nursing students may be constructed by referencing guidance provided in this in order to further cultivate creative thinking abilities in nursing students that will facilitate their application of creative thinking in their future clinical practicum.

Transitioning From Nursing Practice to a Teaching Role  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The national dialogue about the expanding nurse faculty shortage has piqued the interest of many nurses in practice and motivated them to pursue a teaching role. Thought eager to share their clinical expertise as nurse educators, many of them have questions about what is required to transition from the clinical practice setting to the academic environment, even on a part-time basis. This article provides practical advice on how to find teaching opportunities in higher education and make the role transition successfully. The authors address types of faculty appointments, educational qualifications needed for teaching, considerations in taking a faculty position, beginning a faculty position and learning about the academic work environment, and faculty development opportunities. They conclude by paying special attention to the essential skills needed to become a nurse educator and flourish in a teaching role.

Comparison of four teaching methods on Evidence-based Practice skills of postgraduate nursing students.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of this study was to compare four teaching methods on the evidence-based practice knowledge and skills of postgraduate nursing students. Students enrolled in the Evidence-based Nursing (EBN) unit in Australia and Hong Kong in 2010 and 2011 received education via either the standard distance teaching method, computer laboratory teaching method, Evidence-based Practice-Digital Video Disc (EBP-DVD) teaching method or the didactic classroom teaching method. Evidence-based Practice (EBP) knowledge and skills were evaluated using student assignments that comprised validated instruments. One-way analysis of covariance was implemented to assess group differences on outcomes after controlling for the effects of age and grade point average (GPA). Data were obtained from 187 students. The crude mean score among students receiving the standard+DVD method of instruction was higher for developing a precise clinical question (8.1±0.8) and identifying the level of evidence (4.6±0.7) compared to those receiving other teaching methods. These differences were statistically significant after controlling for age and grade point average. Significant improvement in cognitive and technical EBP skills can be achieved for postgraduate nursing students by integrating a DVD as part of the EBP teaching resources. The EBP-DVD is an easy teaching method to improve student learning outcomes and ensure that external students receive equivalent and quality learning experiences. PMID:23107585

Developing the nursing care plans using the "master file of standardized nursing practice terminology" in Japan.  

Science.gov (United States)

A common language in nursing facilitates better communication among nurses and healthcare team, assuring better nursing care, hence better patient outcomes. As we developed and disseminated the standardized terminology of nursing which provided nurses with a set of terms to describe nursing observations and nursing actions, we developed a certain number of nursing care plans using the terms in it. The nursing care plans included those for the patients requiring medical (pharmaceutical)/surgical procedures or the patients showing some signs and symptoms. Generally, nurses found that the nursing care plans were useful and flexible enough to allow for the modification according to the needs of each individual patient. In conclusion, the nursing care plans based on the standardized terminology showed its relevance to the clinical settings. PMID:23920989

Methodology: this is a qualitative research conducted from September to October 2009 with nine students, male and female, attending the seventh and eighth semester of the Nursing School of a university in southern Brazil. An open and recorded survey has been used. For data analysis, Content Theme analysis has been applied. The study was approved by the Ethics Committee of the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, by accreditation number 0113.0.243.000-09. Results: the interviews led to two theme categories: perception of the students on teaching-care integration in nursing and perception of curricular practical classes and supervised internship. The students perceive integration among professors and care nurses as not effective yet, being, many times, inexistent. The also pointed the importance of the role of the educator as a facilitator of the relationship and integration with the nursing team. Conclusions: Teaching-care integration is not a vivid reality; however there are principles of change that indicate the possibility of establishing relationships that optimize professional formation. Descriptors: service of teaching-care integration; nursing; nursing students.

Although there is general consensus that nursing students need knowledge and significant skill to document clinical findings electronically, nursing faculty face many barriers in ensuring that undergraduate students can practice on electronic health record systems (EHRS). External funding supported the development of an educational innovation through a partnership between a home care agency staff and nursing faculty. Modules were developed to teach EHRS skills using a case study of a homebound person requiring wound care and the Medicare-required OASIS documentation system. This article describes the development and implementation of the module for an upper-level baccalaureate nursing program located in New York City. Nursing faculty are being challenged to develop creative and economical solutions to expose nursing students to EHRSs in nonclinical settings. PMID:22616410

Attitudes of nursing students towards the seminar method of teaching.  

Science.gov (United States)

After experiencing problems associated with student-centred teaching methods, the researcher resolved to undertake a study on the attitudes of the student nurses towards the seminar method of teaching. A survey was undertaken among twenty five third and fourth year student nurses. The instrument for collecting data was a questionnaire. From the study it is clear that: negative attitudes exist towards the seminar method of teaching in spite of students' awareness of its contribution to self-directed learning. The majority of student nurses of the basic nursing programme are adolescents who resent any time consuming academic commitment which interferes with their private life. Lack of correlation between teaching methods used at high school and those used at the nursing college leads to poor adjustment to seminar method as a student-centred, independent learning method. Library facilities are inadequate which makes it more difficult and more time consuming for student nurses to find suitable material for preparation of quality presentations. PMID:9287547

Teaching nursing concepts through an online discussion board.  

Science.gov (United States)

Barriers to course content engagement and student learning in nursing education abound. Some of these barriers include content overload, classroom time constraints, and large student numbers. One way to overcome these issues is the implementation of active learning strategies in the classroom. Despite the positive learning outcomes associated with active learning strategies described in the education literature, traditional passive learning strategies continue to be used by nurse educators in the classroom. This article details the results of a pilot study using an active teaching strategy—an online discussion board—which was designed to improve the learning engagement of beginning nursing students enrolled in their first face-to-face nursing course. The results of the semester-long pilot study indicated a favorable student response to the active teaching strategy and improved overall success in the course by the students who participated fully in the online discussions.

A conceptual framework for teaching research in nursing  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Though research is often referred to the lifeblood, hallmark or cornerstone in the development of a profession (Brink, 1996:2, teaching research in Nursing is a challenge. The challenge does not just lie in teaching the subject, but in resistance and unwillingness of students to engage in the subject. In the experience of the researcher, registered nurses identify themselves with being a nurse and a caregiver; the role of researcher has never been internalised. The challenge is to achieve the outcome envisaged, namely, nurses who are knowledgeable consumers of research as well as continuous productive scholars in their application of nursing. Research generates knowledge and knowledge is the basis of caring with excellence. Nursing is an art and a science and the science must produce the knowledge upon which the art is based. The purpose of this article is to propose a conceptual framework of how to teach research in order to achieve such a successful outcome. The conceptual framework proposed in this article is based on four pillars, theoretical knowledge of research, scientific writing, psychological support and experiential learning. The importance of the research facilitator, not just as a teacher but also as a positive role model, is also described.

Six nursing students have been closely monitored during their clinical studies in hospitals, nursing homes and home-based nursing. The study shows that nursing students are likely to possess the potential to provide care for sick and unknown people. The motivation for their commitment to patients may contain an egoistical orientation and runs contrary to former ideals of the nurse's self-sacrificing altruism. Moreover the study shows that there is a potential in the clinical field and in the university college to reflective considerations on experience of care. While clinical practice often has focus on practical problem-solving and procedures, the college tends to focus on abstract theory. Both of these promote the privatisation and neglect of the students' experience of care. The paper concludes with a call for teaching and learning strategies targeting the use of nursing students' personal experience of care. PMID:19581026

Teaching Administration Nursing Service we've been worried about several variables of the instructive process that affect the teachers and the students, as advantage, attitudes, thinking and acting manner, values, expectations, previous experiences, among some. These uneasiness take us to check the educational practice experience, considering the teaching's ability. In this study, we intend to reveal the teacher's understanding about the ability to teach nursing throw the education's reality recognition. So, we adopted a quality methodology that allow us a comprehensive analysis of the teaching's speech at a Public University in São Paulo city. According to the methodology it was possible to get back four meaning unities that allowed us to prescribe the emerging subjects; teaching's understanding about technical ability, teaching's understanding about scientific-theretical ability, teaching's understanding about pedagogical ability and the teaching identity. This study permitted us to reveal some points considered outstanding about the teacher's ability, getting it back as the result in a complex and continuous process of technical, theoretical and pedagogical training, contained in a several factors, psychological, social, ethical, economical, political and historical. We still understanding that the teacher's reflections about the teaching reality, in its totality, favouring the awareness and interfering positivly in their criticism formation. Finally there is a necessity to set up schools formation and up-dating centers and establish human political resources compatible with a renewed political of na educational action. PMID:9668881

[Teaching and learning in the clinical field: perspective of teachers, nurses and nursing students].  

Science.gov (United States)

This is a qualitative research, which used the social phenomenology of Alfred Schütz approach. Its purpose was meeting and discussing the expectations of teachers, nurses and students about teaching in the clinical field. Nine teachers, eleven nurses and eleven students of the Nursing Graduation grade from a public university of São Paulo were included in this study. Data were collected in 2012. As the results showed, there are expectations about the link between theory and practice that clinical teaching can offer and also the desire that such instruction enable the learners to develop a pro-active and participatory attitude. The reciprocity of perspectives was evident and should be considered when academic projects focused on nursing education are developed. PMID:25271572

Teaching nursing history: the Santa Catarina, Brazil, experience.  

Science.gov (United States)

Nursing history has been a much debated subject with a wide range of work from many countries discussing the profession's identity and questioning the nature of nursing and professional practice. Building upon a review of the recent developments in nursing history worldwide and on primary research that examined the structure of mandated nursing history courses in 14 nursing schools in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil, this paper analyzes both the content and the pedagogical style applied. We postulate that the study of history offers an important opportunity for the development of student learning, and propose that more creative and dynamic teaching strategies be applied. We argue the need for professors to be active historical researchers, so they may meaningfully contribute to the development of local histories and enrich the professional identities of both nursing students and the profession. We conclude that historical education in nursing is limited by a traditional and universalist approach to nursing history, by the lack of relevant local sources or examples, and by the failure of historical education to be used as a vehicle to provide students with the intellectual tools for the development of professional understanding and self-identity.

Science.gov (United States)

Developing effective teaching strategies to stimulate students' interest and enthusiasm are urgently needed in current research courses. The purposes of the study were to implement the Cookie Experiments teaching strategy in research course and examine the effects of the strategy on students' attitudes towards nursing research. The study was a pretest-post-test design with 95 students at a Registered Nurses to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-to-BSN) program enrolled in the nursing research course. Results indicated that there was a significant effect of the Cookie Experiments teaching strategy on students' attitudes towards research. Although students perceived a median high score of pressure from the research course, they regarded that the pressure is conducive to their learning of research. Students highly suggested to continuously applying this teaching strategy in the future nursing research courses. Developing and using various teaching strategies with attractive and hands-on methods to motivate nurse students, learning research is strongly recommended. PMID:24580972

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background Workplace violence is one of the factors which can strongly reduce job satisfaction and the quality of working life of nurses. The aim of this study was to measure nurses’ exposure to workplace violence in one of the major teaching hospitals in Tehran in 2010. Methods We surveyed the nurses in a cross-sectional design in 2010. The questionnaire was adapted from a standardized questionnaire designed collaboratively by the International Labor Office (ILO, the International Health Organization (IHO, the International Council of Nurses (ICN, and the Public Services International (PSI. Finally, in order to analyze the relationships among different variables in the study, T-test and Chi-Square test were used. Results Three hundred and one nurses responded to the questionnaire (a response rate of 73%. Over 70% of the nurses felt worried about workplace violence. The participants reported exposure to verbal abuse (64% CI: 59-70%, bullying-mobbing (29% CI: 24-34% and physical violence (12% CI: 9-16% at least once during the previous year. Relatives of hospital patients were responsible for most of the violence. Nurses working in the emergency department and outpatient clinics were more likely to report having experienced violence. Nurses were unlikely to report violence to hospital managers, and 40% of nurses were unaware of any existing policies within the hospital for reducing violence. Conclusion We observed a considerable level of nurse exposure to workplace violence. The high rate of reported workplace violence demonstrates that the existing safeguards that aim to protect the staff from abusive patients and relatives are inadequate.

Using a modified team-based learning approach to teach nursing students about communicable disease control and community health nursing.  

Science.gov (United States)

Team-based learning (TBL) is an active learning approach that is becoming increasingly more popular in nursing education. When nurse educators flip the classroom and use methods such as TBL, students are often more engaged and are active participants in their own learning. This article outlines how a teaching team in an undergraduate nursing program used a modified TBL method to teach about community health nursing. The traditional method of TBL is described, as well as limitations of this approach and recommendations for future teaching. [J Nurs Educ. 2014;53(11):651-653.]. PMID:25350043

Practice standards for quality clinical decision-making in nursing  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The purpose of this study is to formulate practice standards for quality clinical decision making in nursing. Clinical decision-making is a critical component of nursing practice, as the life of the patient is at stake. The quality of clinical decision-making is, therefore, essential in delivering quality nursing care. The facilitation of quality clinical decision-making in nursing requires the development of standards to monitor, evaluate and implement remedial actions that improve on the quality of clinical decision-making (Muller, 2002:203; Beyea & Nicoll, 1999:495. However, there are no such practice standards against which the quality of clinical decision-making by nurses can be evaluated and assessed. A qualitative, explorative, descriptive and standard formulation research design (Mouton & Marais, 1990:45-46; Muller, 1990:49-55 has been followed to develop standards for quality clinical decision-making in nursing. Standard development was based on the principles described by Muller (in Booyens, 1998:607-608; 636-637, and consists of development and quantification phases that are modified to meet the requirements for instrument development, as described by Lynn (1986:382-385. The formulation of these practice-standards was derived deductively from a conceptual framework. The conceptual framework was constructed based on an exploration and description of the expectations of the stakeholders about quality clinical decisionmaking in nursing and a literature study on clinical decision-making. To ensure the credibility of the standards for clinical decision-making in nursing, principles of logic, prolonged engagement, triangulation, peer-group discussion, dense description, stepwise repetition and an investigative audit (Lincoln & Guba, 1985:289-331 were adhered to. Two experts were consulted to validate the standards for quality clinical decisionmaking in nursing.

Exposure to Psychological Violence Among the Nursing Staff in a Large Teaching Hospital in Tehran  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background and Aim: By providing the greatest amount of direct service to patients, nurses play an extremely valuable and unmatched role in the quality and efficiency of care and curative services. Workplace violence is regarded as one of the factors which can reduce job satisfaction and the quality of working life of nurses and their interaction with patients, as well as the work efficiency of nurses and hospitals. In this study, after translating and validating tools of violence measurement in the health sector, the exposure of nurses to psychological violence was measured in a large teaching hospital in Tehran Methods and Materials: A descriptive-cross sectional design was used in this study in summer of 2009 (1387. The study population included all the nurses (n=413 working in a large teaching hospital in Tehran. The questionnaire used for collecting data was adopted from a standardized questionnaire designed jointly in 2003 by the International Labor Office, the World Health Organization, the International Council of Nurses, and the Public Services International. Analysis of the data was made using the descriptive statistical methods and the Chi square- and t-tests. Results: Sixty-nine percent of the nurses had experienced workplace violence. The most common forms of violence were verbal abuse (%64 and bullying-mobbing (%29. On the whole, 26% of the nurses had experienced both forms of violence in the previous year, while 335 had not faced any form of violence in their workplace. Nurses working in outpatient clinics and emergency wards experienced the highest number of encounters with verbal abuse. Encounters with bullying and mobbing were more common among female nurses than the male ones. Overall most of the violent behaviors were committed by patients and their relatives.Conclusion: Exposure of nurses to psychological violence is considerable and comparable to that reported by previous investigators in other countries. Thus it is highly crucial to adopt appropriate management policies aiming, particularly, at educating the medical personnel in ways of preventing and reporting violent behaviors.

For considering the interviews it was adopted thematic analysis of content discribed in lexical analysis by informatical program ALCESTE which provided the organization of the material in five categories: daily problems of SUS consolidation versus nurse formation, dichotomies about FAEN´s nursing course of curriculum versus principles of integralization of graduating process, the just-graduated one from FAEN and its professional insertion united to SUS politic-pedagogical project and the concern about the overcoming of dichotomies of graduation process abilities and necessary competences to the SUS performing nurse. The analysis of informations deriving from documental performance and field research resulted on the verification that, in spite of good intentions, the implementation strategies showed themselves fragile to cope with the rendering of expressed ideal on PPP. There is still a great gap between what´s thought as innovating graduating process and what´s being really implemented.

Performance Standards for Teachers supporting Nursing Students’ Reflection Skills Development  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available How can nursing teachers improve students’ reflection skills? In the study performance standards for teachers were developed and validated. A ten-step procedure was followed to ensure procedural and internal validity. National competences and specific content standards for supporting nursing reflection skills development formed the foundation of a preliminary rubric framework which was piloted. Forty participants from six nursing institutes judged the developed rubric framework of eight competences covering thirty rubric attributes. They also discussed the prerequisite minimum performance level and judgmental models. These judgments and discussions resulted in consensus on the rubric framework, a cut-off score, and a conjunctive judgmental model that is convenient for assessing nursing teachers’ competences. The rubrics can be used in a teacher training program. Also institutes of nursing education can employ the rubrics as a tool for preparing and formatively assessing reflection skills.

PROFESSIONAL NURSING ENGAGED IN TEACHING: limits and possibilities  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The present study was developed with the aim of analyzing the pedagogical practice of nursing professionals engaged in teaching in a Private Institution of Higher Education in State of Bahia Brazil. The discussion on the role of teachers in education and the way of teaching how to develop a humane and collective way. In an exploratory stage, there was a semi structured interview to 19 nursing teachers. Data were analyzed with reference to the assumptions of content analysis. The results indicated that to obtain a good performance of the educator, this should guide their practice in daily observation of emerging interests and needs of students in your group. Another important issue concerns the lack of job opportunities in health care, which leads many professionals to seek the way of teaching as a professional alternative, not necessarily taking into account the personal fitness. Although we have observed that the reflection and concern for teaching are present in their speech and that many constantly try to overcome existing difficulties in practice, this issue raises a detailed analysis.

Content and completeness of care plans after implementation of standardized nursing terminologies and computerized records.  

Science.gov (United States)

The nursing process and standardized nursing terminologies are essential elements to structure nursing documentation in daily nursing information management. The aim of this study was to describe sustainability and whether and how standardized nursing terminologies, in handwritten versus preprinted versus computerized nursing care plans, changed the content and completeness of documented nursing care. Three audits of patient records were performed: a pretest (n = 291) before a yearlong implementation of standardized nursing terminologies in nursing care plans followed by two posttests: (1) 3 weeks after implementation of nursing terminologies (n = 299) and (2) 22 months after implementation of nursing terminologies and 8 months after implementation of a computerized system (n = 281) in a university hospital. Content and completeness of documented nursing care improved after implementation of standardized nursing terminologies. Documentation of nursing care plans, signs and symptoms, related factors, and nursing interventions increased, whereas mean number of nursing diagnoses per patient did not change between audits. Computerized nursing care plans had the biggest impact, with more variety of nursing diagnoses and increased documentation of signs and symptoms, related factors, and nursing interventions. The use of standardized nursing terminologies improved nursing content in the nursing care plans. Moreover, computerized nursing care plans, in comparison with handwritten and preprinted care plans, increased documentation completeness. PMID:22041791

Teaching on the spiritual dimension in care to undergraduate nursing students: the content and teaching methods.  

Science.gov (United States)

The study unit on 'The spiritual dimension in care'had a Judeo-Christian orientation. It was introduced to the Diploma nursing curriculum at the University of Malta in the academic year 2002-2003. The aim was to increase students' awareness about the essence of spirituality in care so as to enable them to implement holistic care. Spirituality may or may not incorporate religiosity. Thus, believers may have spiritual needs which may include religious needs whilst the atheists and agnostics may still have spiritual needs. While considering secularisation, the Christian culture of Malta was addressed in this study unit. This article describes the content structure of the study unit based on the ASSET model (Narayanasamy, A., 1999. ASSET: a model for actioning spirituality and spiritual care education and training in nursing. Nurse Education Today 19, 274-285) and outlines the various teaching methods used. Following feedback from the first and second cohort groups in 2003 and 2004, respectively, the reviewed study unit was delivered to the third cohort group of students (n=65) in Semester 2 in the academic year 2004-2005. Apart from the use of traditional teaching methods, such as lessons and a seminar, other methods were used constantly throughout the study unit, for example, self-reflection exercises, case-studies and small group discussions to enhance learning. Recommendations are proposed to review the content of this study unit and to introduce other teaching methods for effective learning. PMID:17950959

Measurement properties of a peer-teaching scale for nursing education.  

Science.gov (United States)

Teaching is a key role for nurses in contemporary clinical practice. Consequently, peer-assisted learning continues to gather momentum in nursing education in tertiary and professional education settings. In this study, we investigated the factor structure of the Peer Teaching Experience Questionnaire when completed by a group of nursing undergraduates from a large Australian university. Data from the 14-item Peer Teaching Experience Questionnaire completed by third year undergraduate nursing students were analyzed using factor analysis. A total of 257 final (third)-year undergraduate nursing students participated in the study. Factor analysis of the 14 items revealed three factors with eigenvalues above 1, accounting for 47.3% of the total variance. Items with loadings greater than ±?0.40, with the factor in question, were used to characterize the factor solutions. Findings from the exploratory factor analysis provide preliminary results that the Peer Teaching Experience Questionnaire has adequate dimensionality and reliability. PMID:23480236

The role of the unit sister in teaching student nurses in KwaZulu hospitals.  

Science.gov (United States)

This study deals with the rate of the unit sister in teaching student nurses in KwaZulu hospitals. The aim of the study was to identify the extent of her involvement in managing the nursing unit to ensure clinical teaching and her involvement in the clinical teaching process. The role theory and the clinical teaching process formed the conceptual framework. Data was collected from 36 sisters in charge of nursing units by means of a questionnaire. The results of the study indicated that: unit sisters regard good management of the unit as essential for effective clinical teaching; unit sisters regard clinical teaching as one of their important roles and functions as they said they were involved in all activities of the clinical teaching process. However, the responses were confined to what the unit sisters said they do which might not be what they actually do. PMID:9257603

Compliance of state registered nurses to nursing standards during practice in tertiary facilities in Malawi  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The aim of this study was to describe the quality of practice offered by nurses to patients who underwent surgical incision into the abdomen (post-laparotomy at tertiary hospitals (Kamuzu, Mzuzu, Queen Elizabeth and Zomba in Malawi. The study design was descriptively cross sectional and utilized a quantitative data collection and analysis method. All available 48 registered nurses in the surgical ward of four central hospitals and 100 patients that were admitted in the ward during the time of study were recruited. A 3-point scale rating consisting of compliance (C = 1, partial compliance (C 1.0-0.5 and non compliance (C 0.5-0.0 was used to describe the nurse midwives compliance with the process standards of care. Results show that nurses in all the 4 central hospitals partially complied with assessment and planning standards. During assessment, the nurses assessed the physical aspects of care but did not assess the psychological, spiritual and cultural aspects of care. At planning the nurses assigned and delegated tasks based on the knowledge and skills of the provider selected but did not comply with factors related to safety, effectiveness and cost of care. All the facilities fully complied with implementation standard because they implemented care in a safe and appropriate manner and communicated with patients/ significant others and other health care providers. However, regarding systematic and ongoing evaluation of patients’ condition only Mzuzu Central hospital partially complied while the rest of the facilities were not compliant. All the facilities did not comply with documentation standard of care because the patient records were not legible and did not precisely depict comprehensiveness of care nor bore signatures of the implementers of the care. Results are discussed by relating the level of compliance to standards and the quality of patient care.

An assessment of teaching strategies used by lecturers at a nursing college in Mpumalanga  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The need for the utilization of various teaching strategies by lecturers when facilitating learning cannot be overemphasized. The aim of this study was to establish if lecturers at a Nursing College in Mpumalanga were using teaching strategies that could facilitate the personal development of nursing learners. A quantitative approach was followed for this study. The participants of the study were all lecturers at a Nursing College in Mpumalanga. Data was gathered by means of a questionnaire. Descriptive statistics were used to describe and summarize data regarding the type of teaching strategies used and the recommendations that could enhance the utilization of various teaching strategies. The data revealed that the teaching strategies mostly utilized required active participation of the learners namely: formal/informal writing of assignments; learner-led class presentation; group sessions; clinical case studies; role-playing and clinical rounds. Inclusion of certain strategies such as problem-based learning, structured accompaniment and computer literacy for learners could enhance the personal development of nursing learners. Although lecturers did use some of the teaching strategies that could enhance the personal development of nursing learners, staff development regarding the utilization of various teaching strategies was highlighted as an important factor to be considered. Other findings revealed that lack of resources have a negative influence on the utilization of various teaching strategies.

Clinical teaching of student nurses by unit managers of selected hospitals in Limpopo Province  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The comprehensive nature of nurse training needs the involvement of almost all health team personnel, including unit managers to gain practical experience and learn to correlate theory and practice. The overall aim of the study was to explore and describe the experiences of unit managers regarding teaching of student nurses in the clinical area and to develop recommendations that will enhance clinical teaching, for the production of competent future nurse practitioners who will render quality care to patients. A qualitative design, which is explorative, descriptive and contextual in nature, was employed, utilizing a phenomenological approach to capture the experiences of unit managers regarding teaching of student nurses at selected hospitals, where students are allocated for their clinical exposure. Ethical measures as well as measures to ensure trustworthiness were adhered to. In-depth phenomenological interviews were conducted with unit managers who shared their experiences regarding clinical teaching of student nurses. Data analysis was done according to Tesch’s (1990 open coding method. One major theme emerged, namely that unit managers experienced problems when doing clinical teaching of student nurses. Based on the findings the following recommendations were made: Colleges should open a two-way communication with unit managers, involvement of unit managers in the activities that take place at the college like courses, seminars and workshops on clinical teaching, learning contracts should be developed for the students and issues of clinical learning should be addressed and unit managers should be included in both summative and formative evaluations.

Nursing faculty teaching a module in clinical skills to medical students: a Lebanese experience  

Science.gov (United States)

Nursing faculty teaching medical students a module in clinical skills is a relatively new trend. Collaboration in education among medical and nursing professions can improve students’ performance in clinical skills and consequently positively impact the quality of care delivery. In 2011, the Faculty of Medicine in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Balamand, Beirut, Lebanon, launched a module in clinical skills as part of clinical skills teaching to first-year medical students. The module is prepared and delivered by nursing faculty in a laboratory setting. It consists of informative lectures as well as hands-on clinical practice. The clinical competencies taught are hand-washing, medication administration, intravenous initiation and removal, and nasogastric tube insertion and removal. Around sixty-five medical students attend this module every year. A Likert scale-based questionnaire is used to evaluate their experience. Medical students agree that the module provides adequate opportunities to enhance clinical skills and knowledge and favor cross-professional education between nursing and medical disciplines. Most of the respondents report that this experience prepares them better for clinical rotations while increasing their confidence and decreasing anxiety level. Medical students highly appreciate the nursing faculties’ expertise and perceive them as knowledgeable and resourceful. Nursing faculty participating in medical students’ skills teaching is well perceived, has a positive impact, and shows nurses are proficient teachers to medical students. Cross professional education is an attractive model when it comes to teaching clinical skills in medical school.

Generational diversity in associate degree nursing students: Teaching styles and preferences in Pennsylvania  

Science.gov (United States)

Nursing educators face the challenge of meeting the needs of a multi-generational classroom. The reality of having members from the Veteran and Baby Boomer generations in a classroom with Generation X and Y students provides an immediate need for faculty to examine students' teaching method preferences as well as their own use of teaching methods. Most importantly, faculty must facilitate an effective multi-generational learning environment. Research has shown that the generation to which a person belongs is likely to affect the ways in which he/she learns (Hammill, 2005). Characterized by its own attitudes, behaviors, beliefs, and motivational needs, each generation also has distinct educational expectations. It is imperative, therefore, that nurse educators be aware of these differences and develop skills through which to communicate with the different generations, thereby reducing teaching/learning problems in the classroom. This is a quantitative, descriptive study that compared the teaching methods preferred by different generations of associate degree nursing students with the teaching methods that the instructors actually use. The research study included 289 participants; 244 nursing student participants and 45 nursing faculty participants from four nursing departments in colleges in Pennsylvania. Overall, the results of the study found many statistically significant findings. The results of the ANOVA test revealed eight statistically significant findings among Generation Y, Generation X and Baby boomers. The preferred teaching methods included: lecture, self-directed learning, web-based course with no class meetings, important for faculty to know my name, classroom structure, know why I am learning what I am learning, learning for the sake of learning and grade is all that matters. Lecture was found to be the most frequently used teaching method by faculty as well as the most preferred teaching methods by students. Overall, the support for a variety of teaching methods was also found in the analysis of the data.

A model for preparing faculty to teach model C clinical nurse leader students.  

Science.gov (United States)

Model C clinical nurse leader (CNL) programs are complex because they must meet the The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice and The Essentials of Master's Education in Nursing, as well as the graduate level competencies outlined in the white paper Competencies and Curricular Expectations for Clinical Nurse Leader Education and Practice. Faculty assigned to teach in these programs may be experts in education or areas of clinical specialty, but they may not have a clear understanding of the CNL role to teach and mentor CNL students. This article describes a faculty development model that includes an introduction to the CNL role, course mapping of the essentials, integration of CNL professional values into clinical evaluation, consultation with practicing model C graduates, and participation in a comprehensive CNL certification review course. The model was effective in preparing faculty to teach and mentor students in a model C CNL program. PMID:24971734

The effect of an innovative clinical teaching method on nursing students' knowledge and critical thinking skills.  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to determine the effect of an experimental clinical teaching method on nursing students' knowledge and critical thinking skills during clinical rotations in psychiatric nursing. Ausubel's Assimilation Theory of Learning provided the theoretical framework for this research. The subjects (N = 83) were from the baccalaureate nursing graduating classes of 1992 and 1993 of a medium-sized state university in the mid-atlantic region of the United States. The experimental clinical teaching method used computer-assisted instruction (CAI) throughout and a collaboration model (student-faculty-service) during initial clinical experiences. Knowledge was measured by the score for the psychiatric nursing component of the Mosby Assess Test and two parts of the National League for Nursing's (NLN) Psychiatric Exam (theory and total scores). Critical thinking was measured by two parts of the NLN's Psychiatric Nursing Exam (the score for assess, analyze, and evaluate as one measure and planning and implementation for the other measure). The comparison group scored significantly higher than the control group on assessing, analyzing, and evaluating (t = 2.15; p < .03), as well as planning and implementation (t = 2.33; p < .02), measures for critical thinking skills. However, there was no significant difference between the study groups with respect to knowledge. The findings support the appropriateness of Ausubel's Assimilation Theory with this clinical teaching method. Discussion relevant to the application of the study findings to nursing education and future research is presented. PMID:8926511

Formation of healthcare professionals: a look at the previous experiences of nursing teaching diploma students  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This study focused on the analysis of past experience of nursing teaching diploma students in their formation. This article is part of a larger longitudinal survey which followed a group of students throughout the five years of their formation. The students had to write essays, the first being about previous schooling and the others on the contribution of each year at university toward their formation. This was a qualitative study, which adopted the theoretical framework of Vygotski, in order to grasp the different meanings and feelings which are evident in the narratives. Forty-six subjects participated in the survey. They wrote the essays and filled out a questionnaire to characterize their profile. For this study seven narratives were detached from the sample and analyzed. They were written by students at the beginning of the first academic year using the proposed title: "My school history to reach the Nursing Teaching Diploma". The analysis of the essays along with the student profiles pointed out misunderstandings, difficulties and reasons why students chose the Nursing Teaching Diploma Course. The meanings given by students to the course and the actual practice of the nurse teacher indicates the basis of how the course proposals contradict each other in the process of formation. Awareness of these contradictions, considering them in the training of new nurses, is fundamental. Nursing teaching means teaching care for others. That also implies taking care of undergraduate students of nursing. To have students who are critical, active, and aware of the reality of the clients they will look after, has implications in how these factors are considered in their own training process.

IPMA STANDARD ELEMENTS AND FEEDBACK IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT TEACHING  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The paper proposes the concept of project management teaching including the International Project Management Association (IPMA standard. The concept of teaching is theoretical and derives from the notion of competence, which the IPMA standard is based on. The paper presents a brief description of the IPMA standard and endeavours to define the notion of competence. The competence is worked with in respect to hierarchical recognition. The proposed teaching concept works with the concepts of information, knowledge and skills. The teaching proposal stems from the structure and contents of the IPMA standard elements. Furthermore, the paper elaborates the issue of embedding the elements of the IPMA standard competences into training courses. In the article, the eye of the IPMA competences is further enhanced with possible training courses and specialist areas in which the standard elements can thematically be included. The paper states that the competence elements and training courses cross one another and overlap in a manifold way. The authors also propose a way which could verify into what extent the students have actually acquired taught IPMA competence elements. The paper contains the proposal of feedback quantification for the IPMA standard and project management teaching. The results of the paper can be used as a starting premise for future research. Both the verification proposal and the embedding of the elements into teaching are derived from on-going academic experience of the authors of the article.

This article presents an assessment of whether race, education, gender, or other testing bias was present in a state-mandated nurse aide competency test. This assessment was carried out with data from two sources: (a) a statewide standardized test for all nurse aides that was given by a nationally known testing company, (b) an independent observational evaluation with a Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scale (BARS) for nurse aides' performance that was carried out by the investigators. The results show that race and education level were predictors of performance on written and manual portions of the standardized test. Gender, age, and years of experience were also shown to predict test success. Comparing data from the two sources suggests that a possible bias in the standardized nurse aid test. The independent observation of performance on the job with the BARS is shown to be less biased. PMID:9128536

The effectiveness of teaching strategies for creativity in a nursing concepts teaching protocol on the creative thinking of two-year RN-BSN students.  

Science.gov (United States)

Because of changes in the medical environment, nurses must maintain the ability of divergent thinking to solve the health problems of patients. However, many nurses whose work in clinical practice has become routine have lost the ability of creativity. To cultivate nurses creativity should be a goal of nursing education. The purpose of this study is to evaluate a nursing concepts teaching protocol by utilizing teaching strategies directed toward creativity to promote creativity in two-year RN-BSN students. This study design is a time series and one group experiment utilizing multiple instances of treatment. Teaching strategies for creativity were applied to a teaching unit and 52 two-year RN-BSN students were tested for creativity before the end of each semester. This study was conducted from March, 1999 to May, 2000, but only 30 students completed all tests and reached a 58% return rate. Torrance s (1974) definitions of creativity includ fluency, flexibility, and uniqueness were followed and the instrument, a questionnaire on Creativity in the application of the Nursing Process Tool (CNPT), was designed based on Emerson (1988). The content validity of Chinese-version CNPT was.79. The inter-coder reliability between two researchers was.84 following a coding guide that ten nursing education experts had established. The results indicated that 30 two-year RN-BSN students had improved fluency and flexibility. The improvements reached a significant level after the third semester. Only uniqueness declined. It is suggested that nursing faculty apply teaching strategies uniqueness more often in a teaching protocol of nursing concepts. By utilizing teaching strategies of creativity in a teaching protocol of nursing concepts, it is expected that two-year RN-BSN students can acquire characteristics of creativity for problem-solving skills in clinical settings.

Implementing case-based teaching strategies in a decentralised nursing management programme in South Africa  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO South Africa | Language: English Abstract in english BACKGROUND: Case-based education has a long history in the disciplines of education, business, law and the health professions. Research suggests that students who learn via a case-based method have advanced critical thinking skills and a greater ability for application of knowledge in practice. In m [...] edical education, case-based methodology is widely used to facilitate knowledge transfer from theoretical knowledge to application in patient care. Nursing education has also adopted case-based methodology to enhance learner outcomes and critical thinking. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the study was to describe a decentralised nursing management education programme located in Durban, South Africa and describe the perceptions of nursing faculty facilitators regarding implementation of this teaching method. METHOD: Data was collected through the use of one-on-one interviews and also focus groups amongst the fifteen facilitators who were using a case-based curriculum to teach the programme content. The average facilitator was female, between 41 and 50 years of age, working part-time, educated with a baccalaureate degree, working as a professional nurse for between 11 and 20 years; slightly more than half had worked as a facilitator for three or more years. RESULTS: The facilitators identified themes related to the student learners, the learning environment, and strengths and challenges of using facilitation to teach the content through cases. Decentralised nursing management educational programmes can meet the needs of nurses who are located in remote areas which are characterised by poor transportation patterns and limited resources and have great need for quality healthcare services. CONCLUSION: Nursing faculty facilitators need knowledgeable and accessible contact with centrally based full-time nursing faculty in order to promote high quality educational programmes.

The benefits of standardized nursing languages in complex adaptive systems such as hospitals.  

Science.gov (United States)

Paperwork is a major source of frustration for hospital nurses and takes valuable time away from patient care. Studies indicate that nurses spend an estimated 13% to 28% of total shift time documenting. The growth in documentation requirements for nurses can, in part, be attributed to an exponential rise in health system complexity. Authors explore the documentation of nursing care plans from a complex adaptive system perspective and then analyze the utility of adopting a standardized nursing language. An actual case history of a nursing unit's attempt to reduce complexity, improve completion time, and increase staff satisfaction in care planning by adopting a standardized nursing language is provided to emphasize a practical application.

Bank of terms of the nursing special language in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of a teaching hospital - descriptive study  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: The lack of standardization in the nursing special language has been identified as one of the main problems to overcome so that the profession can be recognized as a science. The emphasis on addressing these concerns led to the development of nursing terminologies that often do not reflect the local nursing practices, and this fact motivated the identification of professional nursing terms in a teaching hospital. Objective: To build, based on the ICNP® Seven Axes Model, a bank of terms of the nursing special language for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of a teaching hospital, by using the terms found in the nursing records of this unit. Methodology: Descriptive research developed with the goal of contributing to the systematization of nursing care at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of a teaching hospital. The steps followed in this research were: identification and evaluation of specialized documents; cross mapping of the identified terms with the ICNP® Version 1.0 terms; establishment of databases domain trees; development of definitions for terms not included in ICNP®, validation of the terms and definitions included in the database. Results: The results show that the 596 terms and definitions validated will enable the building of a bank of terms of the nursing special language for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, containing 226 terms that are included and 374 terms that are not included in ICNP® Version 1.0. Conclusion:  It is expected that this database will become a source for the development of ICNP® Catalogues, including sets of diagnostic statements, nursing results and interventions, which can be used to implement the systematization of nursing care in the unit in question.

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Smooth working relationships between nurses and doctors are necessary for efficient health care delivery. However, previous studies have shown that this is often absent with negative impact on the quality of health care delivery. In 2002, we studied factors that affect nurse-doctor working relationships in University Teaching Hospitals (UTH in Southern Nigeria in order to characterize it and identify managerial and training needs that might be used to improve it. Method Questionnaire survey of doctors and nurses working in four UTH in Southern Nigeria was done in 2002. The setting and subjects were selected by random sampling procedures. Information on factors in domains of work, union activities, personnel and hospital management were studied using closed and open-ended questionnaires. Results Nurse-doctor working relationships were statistically significantly affected by poor after-work social interaction, staff shortages, activist unionism, disregard for one's profession, and hospital management and government policies. In general, nurses had better opinion of doctors' work than doctors had about nurses' work. Conclusion Working relationships between doctors and nurses need to be improved through improved training and better working conditions, creation of better working environment, use of alternative methods of conflict resolution and balanced hospital management and government policies. This will improve the retention of staff, job satisfaction and efficiency of health care delivery in Nigeria.

Full Text Available Discussion on the teaching mode of higher vocational nursing specialty based on CDIO model is the core of this study. CDIO is the latest achievement in the reform of the international higher education of engineering and has been thrived since 2000. There are some inevitable problems when domestic universities introduced and innovated the CDIO mode. Therefore the CDIO model is a bold attempt for the institutions of higher education, especially higher vocational college teachers. The CDIO mode drives teachers to reflect on the existed teaching philosophy, and therefore enables them to change teaching methods in the teaching process and improve their teaching capacity tremendously. Meanwhile, it also encourages students to learn automatically and cultivate their comprehensive abilities such as professional capability, development capability, interpersonal skills, innovation ability, etc.

Science.gov (United States)

Using the Glasgow Coma Scale (ECGI) as a subject, this paper aims to analyze and verify the apprehension of knowledge towards the teaching-learning and self-learning offered to nursing workers, and to check the degree of knowledge acquired during the process and possible results stemming from the nursing student/nursing worker association. This descriptive, quantitative-based study counted on the participation of 62 currently enrolled students in the first semester of the 4th year of nursing. The following teaching-learning strategies were used: expositive classes with the use of slides and videotape, and a basic text. Among participants, 41.9% were nursing workers; 61.3% informed to have taken care of patients with high alteration of the consciousness level, predominantly located in their working group. Statistically, there has been a successful improvement in the percentage of correct actions after the expositive class and videotape. Self-learning results showed no alteration either. Intergroup correlations displayed no disparity in the degree of acquired knowledge. PMID:19842584

Collaborating with practitioners in teaching and research: a model for developing the role of the nurse lecturer in practice areas.  

Science.gov (United States)

Collaborating with practitioners in teaching and research: a model for developing the role of the nurse lecturer in practice areas The integration of nurse education with higher education in the United Kingdom, has highlighted an uncertainty over the clinical role of nurse lecturers. Although benefits have been identified from lecturers maintaining strong links with clinical practice, the evidence suggests that nurse lecturer participation in practice areas is limited. This paper reports a strategy for developing the clinical role of the nurse lecturer through collaborating with practitioners in teaching and research. An action research project designed to implement and evaluate a teaching programme for pre-registration nursing students was developed. The research aimed to evaluate the programme and identify the benefits for students, practitioners and the nurse lecturer in collaborating in teaching on the programme. Ethical approval was granted from the local research ethics committee. Data were collected in three ways: questionnaires to 17 students; focused interviews with nine practitioners; and analysis of the reflective diary kept by the lecturer. Findings identified the success of the teaching programme and also revealed substantial benefits for students, practitioners and the lecturer. Selected findings are used to demonstrate how the liaison, teaching, clinical practice and research elements of the nurse lecturer's clinical role could be developed. The project was small scale and grounded within a specific context and thus may not be applicable to other settings. However, it is suggested that collaboration between nurse educationalists and practitioners in this way offers a potential model for developing the clinical role of the nurse lecturer. PMID:10718891

Evaluation of clinical teaching and professional development in a problem and community-based nursing module  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available In South Africa the main focus is on primary health care. This affects the education and training of nurses, and training schools must respond by developing appropriate teaching modules. A school of nursing developed, implemented and revised a problem- and community- based learning module over a period of three years (1996-1998. This student-centered module focuses on students’ needs, active participation, collaboration, accountability, self-assessment, self-study, life-long learning and appropriate skills. In the formal clinical teaching environment PBL was the main approach. However, this approach was also supported by a variety of strategies, for example group discussions and scenarios. The knowledge, attitudes and professional development skills acquired in the PBL approach were then applied informally in the community setting (CBE. The purpose of the study was to evaluate a first year clinical teaching module as part of an extensive programme. A quantitative research method, a descriptive design, and a variety of data collection techniques were used. Conclusions were that clinical teaching was effective within the problem- (PBL and community-based (CBE approaches; 78% of respondents were positive about the clinical learning environment; 61 % stated that expectations were met; 81% preferred group activities, and 67% indicated that they had developed professional skills. Facilitators agreed that clinical teaching met the requirements of PBL & CBE. The pass rate also improved.

Using a student-faculty collaborative learning model to teach grant development in graduate nursing education.  

Science.gov (United States)

Graduate nurses are employed in clinical, research, educational, and policy roles. As leaders, they are expected to develop and sustain projects that support translating research to practice and policy. Funding to support initiatives is tight and requires innovative solutions to cover salaries, benefits, equipment purchases, and other program expenses. In an effort to teach grant writing while developing skilled leaders who are effective and competitive in securing funds, the George Washington University School of Nursing offers a graduate-level grant writing course. In the summer of 2011, a collaborative learning model was developed within the course. The joint approach was foundational to securing an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality grant to support development and implementation of a patient engagement project by the Nursing Alliance for Quality Care. This article describes the project and offers hints for those seeking to develop a collaborative educational experience that affords new leadership skills for RNs from all backgrounds. PMID:24766039

[Nursing as an option: profile of undergraduate of two teaching institutions].  

Science.gov (United States)

This is a descriptive-exploratory study, aiming at comparing socioeconomic profile of students of two teaching institutions of the municipality of Rio de Janeiro and factors that interfere in their option to choose Nursing. The study was composed by 152 students of Institution (A) and 120 of (B) who were admitted to the undergraduate course in 2004 and 2005. The analysis evidenced that the majority belongs to middle and lower middle class and are young adults, single women. An expanding labor market and an opportunity of a better salary are the main factors that attract students of private schools to nursing career. It is important to the profession to be known in society and, especially, among students who search for a professional option, considering the lack of information of students who are admitted to the Nursing undergraduate course.

[Inter-organizational relationship in the integration teaching-nursing service at the primary health care].  

Science.gov (United States)

This study aimed to characterize the stages of the inter-organizational relationships between educational and caring aspects of Nursing, operating in the context of primary health care in a municipality of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The qualitative approach of the case study was used by deliberately selecting the cooperation between two organizations. Eight teaching nurses and eight assistant nurses were interviewed. The data were submitted to content analysis, and the results demonstrated a number of elements in the phases of interaction (negotiation, commitment and execution of activities), as well as the variability of their content over time. It was concluded that the interaction, at an operational level, is characterized by dynamics that happen during relationship cycles, usually spanning through the school-semester, producing new negotiations and commitments for the following semester.

MANAGEMENT OF TEACHING AT A NURSING COLLEGE - PERCEPTIONS OF MANAGERS  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The objective of this research is to describe, from the perspective of managers, how the management of teaching happens. It’s a exploratory study, conducted in in a Public University in Midwest Region. Subjects were occupants of the positions of Director, Head of Department and Course coordinator. The collection and data analysis was held by documentary surveys, semi-structured interviews and thematic analysis, respectively. The project was approved by Ethical Committee No. 796/CEP/HUJM. As main results, we identified that the management acts were based on institutional goals and objectives, materialized in PDI. Teachers were organized into working groups and research groups and extension, by area of expertise. The college management is anchored in national and institutional regulations governing the teaching profession, but they enjoy autonomy in performing their duties. The managers believe that their main role is to articulate the administrative structures and academic faculty, in order to achieve planned results. Understanding how does the management of teaching happens, helped us to suggest strategies to overcome difficulties encountered in teaching and managerial work.

Recommending a minimum English proficiency standard for entry-level nursing.  

Science.gov (United States)

When nurses who are educated internationally immigrate to the United States, they are expected to have English language proficiency in order to function as a competent nurse. The purpose of this research was to provide sufficient information to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) to make a defensible recommended passing standard for English proficiency. This standard was based upon the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A large panel of nurses and nurse regulators (N = 25) was convened to determine how much English proficiency is required to be minimally competent as an entry-level nurse. Two standard setting procedures, the Simulated Minimally Competent Candidate (SMCC) procedure and the Examinee Paper Selection Method, were combined to produce recommendations for each panelist. In conjunction with collateral information, these recommendations were reviewed by the NCSBN Examination Committee, which decided upon an NCSBN recommended standard, a TOEFL score of 220. Because the adoption of this standard rests entirely with the individual state, NCSBN has little more to do with implementing the standard, other than answering questions and providing documentation about the standard.

Standardizing nursing information in Canada for inclusion in electronic health records: C-HOBIC.  

Science.gov (United States)

The Canadian Health Outcomes for Better Information and Care (C-HOBIC) project introduced systematic use of standardized clinical nursing terminology for patient assessments. Implemented so far in three Canadian provinces, C-HOBIC comprises an innovative model for large-scale capture of standardized nursing-sensitive clinical outcomes data within electronic health records (EHRs). To support this activity, nursing assessment and outcomes concepts were mapped to the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP(R)). By comparing serial data on a patient across multiple time points, the C-HOBIC model can generate nursing-sensitive patient outcome reports. A principle benefit of the C-HOBIC model is that it provides nurses with information critical to planning for and evaluating patient care. Inclusion of nursing information in either provincial databases or EHRs in three Canadian provinces promotes continuity of patient care across sectors of the healthcare systems in those provinces and also facilitates aggregation and analysis by administrators and policy makers. The C-HOBIC model provides standardized, consistent, interoperable clinical information that reflects nursing practice throughout the Canadian healthcare System. PMID:19261936

Teaching interprofessional teamwork in medical and nursing education in Norway: a content analysis.  

Science.gov (United States)

The notions of interprofessional education and interprofessional teamwork have attained widespread acceptance, partly because lack of teamwork has been tentatively linked to adverse incidents in healthcare. By analyzing data from 32 educational institutions, this study identifies the status of interprofessional teamwork in all nursing and medical education in Norway. The study programs issued by the 32 educational institutions were subject to content analysis, distilling the ambitions and goals for teaching interprofessional teamwork. Study program coordinators were approached and asked to what degree interprofessional teamwork was actually introduced in lecturing and clinical training. Results indicate that the medical and nursing schools clearly aspire to teach interprofessional teamwork and that this has largely been achieved when it comes to theoretical teaching. Although three of the four medical programs have integrated interprofessional teamwork into their clinical training, there is a gap in the nursing programs where introduction of interprofessional teamwork in clinical training has been limited. Current challenges are related to organizational issues (e.g. lack of institutional collaboration), practical difficulties (e.g. finding time to bring students of various professions together) and possibly managerial issues (e.g. lack of strategic perspective and change management).

Humor as a teaching tool. Use in psychiatric undergraduate nursing.  

Science.gov (United States)

The research and anecdotal literature has suggested therapeutic humor is beneficial in the treatment relationship between nurse and patient; however, the potential effects of therapeutic humor between students and faculty have largely been overlooked. The literature has substantiated that a positive rapport between teacher and student facilitates improved student performance during the clinical experience. The author posits that a teacher's skillful use of humor can be an effective means of establishing and maintaining rapport with a student during potentially stressful clinical experiences. This article discusses the use of appropriate humor and how humor can be leveraged for effective academic and clinical instructional purposes, particularly in high-stress, high-demand settings. The article reflects on the potential for misinterpretation of humor, urging careful consideration of the context for its use. PMID:20704129

Relationship between nursing students' preference for types of teaching materials and learning effects of self-learning tool.  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between learning effects of the self-learning tool for nursing students and types of teaching materials. Ten nursing students were asked to perform transfer a patient from bed to wheelchair after watching the demo video and practicing 20 minutes. The students' performance was evaluated before and after practicing. The students were also asked to choose teaching materials that would be developed in the future. Out of nine teaching materials, the students chose seven of them. Correspondence analysis was conducted between the results of the evaluation of students' transfer technique and their preference of teaching materials. The results indicated that there was no relationship between the preference of teaching materials and the scores of transfer techniques. The authors concluded that the self-learning was not affected by the preference of teaching materials. PMID:24943523

[The collaborative nursing care plan: integration of the clinical pathway with the traditional nursing care plan].  

Science.gov (United States)

The nursing care plan is a commonly used teaching tool in nursing education. By developing individualized nursing care plans for specific clients, students practice use of nursing process and making clinical judgments and decisions. However, the system of managed care has impacted current clinical practice, and many health care agencies have shifted their emphasis from requiring the traditional columnar nursing care plans to use of clinical pathways and standards of care. As result of this trend, nursing educators are faced with the problem of preparing students to cope with today's reality in clinical practice. In response to this problem, this article reexamines the practical utility of the traditional nursing care plan in nursing education. The article also introduces a collaborative nursing care plan, the integration of the clinical pathway with the traditional nursing care plan, and its application in teaching. PMID:15045896

Achieving the standard of the school health nursing process in elementary schools of Kerman, Iran  

Science.gov (United States)

Background: Considering the school nursing standards, which is the most important and vital element of the school health team, can be a fundamental step toward solving the current and future problems of the school and society health. The present research was done with the goal of determining the current situation of the standard of the school health nursing process in elementary schools of Kerman, Iran. Materials and Methods: The present research is a quantitative, descriptive study and was done between the years 2009 and 2010 through conducting an opinion poll. In this study, first the international standards of school nursing were searched and extracted from informational sources. Then, a questionnaire was designed based on the standards of the school nursing process and its related indicators in 6 areas. This questionnaire had two parts. The first part had the respondents’ demographic information, answering was optional, and the second part of the poll was about each of the indicators. After preparing the questionnaire and determining its validity and reliability, it was distributed among the 120 samples (60 health trainers and 60 of Kerman’s elementary school staff), and their opinions were gathered and analyzed through statistical-descriptive analysis. Findings: The results of this research demonstrate that approximately all the above mentioned standard areas in the country were applied (98%). The rate of acquiring the standard of nursing process was high (90%) in some areas (Investigative area) and low (30%) in some other areas (diagnosis area). Conclusions: In total, the rate of acquiring the majority of indicators of nursing process standards has an average percentage. It is suggested to use schools health professionals to raise the indicators of the standard of the school nursing process (the indicators which had low or average acquiring rate), and to raise the performance quality.

An analysis of pre-service family planning teaching in clinical and nursing education in Tanzania  

Science.gov (United States)

Background Promoting family planning (FP) is a key strategy for health, economic and population growth. Sub-Saharan Africa, with one of the lowest contraceptive prevalence and highest fertility rates globally, contributes half of the global maternal deaths. Improving the quality of FP services, including enhancing pre-service FP teaching, has the potential to improve contraceptive prevalence. In efforts to improve the quality of FP services in Tanzania, including provider skills, this study sought to identify gaps in pre-service FP teaching and suggest opportunities for strengthening the training. Methods Data were collected from all medical schools and a representative sample of pre-service nursing, Assistant Medical Officer (AMO), Clinical Officer (CO) and assistant CO schools in mainland Tanzania. Teachers responsible for FP teaching at the schools were interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire. Observations on availability of teaching resources and other evidence of FP teaching and evaluation were documented. Relevant approved teaching documents were assessed for their suitability as competency-based FP teaching tools against predefined criteria. Quantitative data were analyzed using EPI Info 6 and qualitative data were manually analyzed using content analysis. Results A total of 35 pre-service schools were evaluated for FP teaching including 30 technical education and five degree offering schools. Of the assessed 11 pre-service curricula, only one met the criteria for suitability of FP teaching. FP teaching was typically theoretical with only 22.9% of all the schools having systems in place to produce graduates who could skillfully provide FP methods. Across schools, the target skills were the same level of competence and skewed toward short acting methods of contraception. Only 23.3% (n?=?7) of schools had skills laboratories, 76% (n?=?22) were either physically connected or linked to FP clinics. None of the degree providing schools practiced FP at its own teaching hospital. Teachers were concerned with poor practical exposure and lack of teaching material. Conclusions Pre-service FP teaching in Tanzania is theoretical, poorly guided, and skewed toward short acting methods; a majority of the schools are unable to produce competent FP service providers. Pre-service FP training should be strengthened with more focus on practical skills. PMID:25016391

The use of podcasts to enhance research-teaching linkages in undergraduate nursing students.  

Science.gov (United States)

An understanding of research is important to enable nurses to provide evidence-based care. However, undergraduate nursing students often find research a challenging subject. The purpose of this paper is to present an evaluation of the introduction of podcasts in an undergraduate research module to enhance research-teaching linkages between the theoretical content and research in practice and improve the level of student support offered in a blended learning environment. Two cohorts of students (n=228 and n=233) were given access to a series of 5 "guest speaker" podcasts made up of presentations and interviews with research experts within Edinburgh Napier. These staff would not normally have contact with students on this module, but through the podcasts were able to share their research expertise and methods with our learners. The main positive results of the podcasts suggest the increased understanding achieved by students due to the multi-modal delivery approach, a more personal student/tutor relationship leading to greater engagement, and the effective use of materials for revision and consolidation purposes. Negative effects of the podcasts centred around problems with the technology, most often difficulty in downloading and accessing the material. This paper contributes to the emerging knowledge base of podcasting in nurse education by demonstrating how podcasts can be used to enhance research-teaching linkages and raises the question of why students do not exploit the opportunities for mobile learning.

Application of an innovative, autonomous, creative teaching modality through service-learning in a community-health nursing course  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Nursing faculty continue to find themselves challenged to meet student needs by the increasing student enrollment numbers and increasing faculty workloads without simultaneously increasing resources. The responsibility to meet student needs rests on the nursing faculty. It is therefore increasingly important that nursing faculty implement teaching modalities to meet student and patient needs. This article demonstrates faculty’s use of service-learning as an effective, innovative teaching modality to meet increasing student, patient, and community needs without additional resources. The authors seek to differentiate between service learning and contracted clinical experiences in order to enable nurse educators to use service learning as a teaching modality. The authors describe the process of using service learning with nursing process in this course. Nursing assessment is built into the project as a “windshield survey”. A literature review was conducted seeking to understand other uses of service learning in education and validate the authors’ experiences. This three-credit hour lecture and one credit hour clinical course has yielded unique and interesting service learning projects that positively impact their communities. The students work with cohorts of all races, ethnicities and cultures throughout the lifespan.  Service-learning opportunities assist in the availability and accessibility of health care to safety net facilities and vulnerable populations who may not otherwise receive health care screening or treatment.  Faculty in nursing and other health disciplines will likely appreciate the innovation, creativity, and autonomy afforded this modality of outreach.

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Introduction: In a four-year undergraduate level , the nursing students have to get prepared in the patients education, designing care plans, applying nursing processes and exercise the clinical decisions, in addition to learning practical skills. Therefore, multiple clinical teaching strategies in nursing must be applied. In this study the sheets for the mentioned fields were designed and used. Methods: In this action research in Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, 64 nursing senior students and related instructors participated. Clinical written assignment included the patient’s health condition sheet, tables showing the used medicines and the precautions, the clinical and paraclinical tests and the results, identifying the patient problems, designing and implementing care plan and writing nursing reports with SOAPIE method. The instructors’ viewpoints were achieved through the group discussions and their notes taken. The perceived competency of the students was obtained through a questionnaire. The qualitative data was analyzed by the content analysis and quantitative using SPSS. Results: Both the students and the instructors agreed with the clinical written assignment. The desired care competency of the students before and after assignment was statistically significant (p<0.05. According to the instructors, intervention was useful for the senior students who have passed the courses needed for completing and using the different parts of these forms. Conclusion: Since a need is always felt in the trends of the nursing clinical teaching, the researchers recommend the clinical written assignment and their application along with other strategies for senior nursing students in clinical teaching.

Adherence of pain assessment to the German national standard for pain management in 12 nursing homes  

Science.gov (United States)

BACKGROUND: Pain is very common among nursing home residents. The assessment of pain is a prerequisite for effective multiprofessional pain management. Within the framework of the German health services research project, ‘Action Alliance Pain-Free City Muenster’, the authors investigated pain assessment adherence according to the German national Expert Standard for Pain Management in Nursing, which is a general standard applicable to all chronic/acute pain-affected persons and highly recommended for practice. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the state of pain assessment and to identify need for improvement in 12 nursing homes in a German city. METHODS: In the present study, the authors used an ex-post-facto design (survey methodology). Available written policies for routine pain assessment in residents ?65 years of age were reviewed and a standardized online survey completed by 151 of 349 nurses in 12 nursing home facilities was conducted between September 2010 and April 2011. RESULTS: Most of the included nursing homes provided written policies for pain assessment, and the majority of nurses reported that they assess and regularly reassess pain. However, observational tools for residents with severe cognitive impairment and written reassessment schedules were lacking in many facilities or were inconsistent. CONCLUSIONS: Essentially, pain assessment appeared to be feasible in the majority of the German nursing homes studied. However, the absence or inconsistency of reassessment schedules indicate that pain management guidelines should include a detailed and explicit reassessment schedule for the heterogenic needs of nursing home residents. For residents with severe cognitive impairment, assessment tools are needed that are simple to use and clearly indicate the presence or absence of pain. PMID:24851238

The longitudinal effect of concept map teaching on critical thinking of nursing students.  

Science.gov (United States)

Concept map is a useful cognitive tool for enhancing a student's critical thinking by encouraging students to process information deeply for understanding. However, there is limited understanding of longitudinal effects of concept map teaching on students' critical thinking. The purpose of the study was to investigate the growth and the other factors influencing the development of critical thinking in response to concept map as an interventional strategy for nursing students in a two-year registered nurse baccalaureate program. The study was a quasi-experimental and longitudinal follow-up design. A convenience sample was drawn from a university in central Taiwan. Data were collected at different time points at the beginning of each semester using structured questionnaires including Critical Thinking Scale and Approaches to Learning and Studying. The intervention of concept map teaching was given at the second semester in the Medical-Surgical Nursing course. The results of the findings revealed student started with a mean critical thinking score of 41.32 and decreased at a rate of 0.42 over time, although not significant. After controlling for individual characteristics, the final model revealed that the experimental group gained a higher critical thinking score across time than the control group. The best predictive variables of initial status in critical thinking were without clinical experience and a higher pre-test score. The growth in critical thinking was predicted best by a lower pre-test score, and lower scores on surface approach and organized study. Our study suggested that concept map is a useful teaching strategy to enhance student critical thinking. PMID:22795871

Designing and Teaching to the Standards, and Beyond!  

Science.gov (United States)

This professional development (PD) session brought together participants interested in space science curriculum and teacher PD, and fostered learning and discussion around EPO strategies for designing resources targeted at science standards and, when appropriate, teaching beyond such standards. We used the case example of the new GEMS Space Science Sequences (GEMS-SSS) for grades 3-5 and 6-8, and emphasized how others can adopt and adapt strategies for implementation with their own products and programs. The session presenters represent diverse backgrounds in astronomy research, curriculum development, teacher PD, NASA EPO, science writing, and planetarium/science center programs. We outlined the design process employed in the development of the GEMS-SSS, beginning with analysis of space science concepts and scientific inquiry strategies appearing in the national standards/benchmarks and dozens of state standards documents. Then a panel of ten NASA science/education advisors convened to make further recommendations for the GEMS-SSS. This panel strongly urged the inclusion in the 6-8 sequence of content related to objects and structure outside of our solar system, even though this content is rarely found earlier than high school in most standards documents. From the advisory panel's recommendation, and a desire to feature more current scientific discovery, a ``Beyond the Solar System'' unit was developed and field-tested in middle school classrooms. These results were shared with workshop participants. Our session included interactive activities illustrating teaching both to the standards and beyond them, and featured group discussion of the power of this approach in different contexts -- ours and participants'.

An investigation of predictors of NCLEX-RN outcomes among nursing content standardized tests.  

Science.gov (United States)

In order to meet increased demands for qualified registered nurses and prevent negative effects from graduates' failure on the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse, it is important to promote students' success in the exam. The purpose of this study was to investigate effective predictors of NCLEX-RN outcomes on the first attempt among nursing content standardized tests (adult medical-surgical, fundamentals for nursing, pharmacology, maternal-newborn, nursing care of children, mental health, community health, and leadership and management) conducted throughout the nursing program. NCLEX-RN outcomes and individual adjusted scores on the standardized tests of 151 graduates from the traditional baccalaureate nursing program of a public university located in the Midwest from May 2010 to December 2011 were analyzed by a t-test and logistic regression. The participants included 118 graduates who passed and 33 graduates who failed the NCLEX-RN on the first attempt. Significant statistical differences were found between the two groups with NCLEX-RN success and failure in the individual adjusted scores on all of the standardized tests except the fundamental for nursing (p=.62) and nursing care of children (p=.759) standardized tests. In addition, logistic regression indicated that the overall regression models were significant in predicting both NCLEX-RN success and failure. Adult medical-surgical, pharmacology, and community health standardized tests were central to the prediction of both NCLEX-RN success and failure; however, a much lower percentage of NCLEX-RN failure than success was classified. It can be concluded that the adult medical-surgical, pharmacology, and community health standardized tests were effective in predicting NCLEX-RN success and not effective in predicting NCLEX-RN failure on the first attempt. The NCLEX-RN success predictors can be utilized to identify students at risk and provide early remediation. After early remediation is implemented, the comprehensive standardized tests may be used as a mid-point indicator of the remediation's effectiveness before taking the NCLEX-RN. PMID:23692652

This theoretical study addresses the education system for Psychiatric Nursing in an increasingly changing world of accelerated scientific and technological modernization. The objective is to discuss the pedagogy in Psychiatric Nursing, and its interface with the principles of the Brazilian psychiatric reform and national curriculum guidelines of nursing undergraduate courses. The theoretical foundation of the study consisted of constructs of the Brazilian psychiatric reform and national curriculum guidelines of nursing undergraduate courses and their relationship to factors constituting the pedagogy in psychiatric nursing. The study shows that it is not enough to identify technical issues regarding contents and teaching, didactic procedures, methods and pedagogical techniques; it is necessary to implement changes, using a new perspective and by daring to question the nature of knowledge and institutional psychiatric practices.

Breast cancer risk factor knowledge among nurses in teaching hospitals of Karachi, Pakistan: a cross-sectional study  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in both the developed and the developing world. The incidence of breast cancer in Karachi, Pakistan is 69.1 per 100,000 with breast cancer presentation in stages III and IV being common (? 50%. The most pragmatic solution to early detection lies in breast cancer education of women. Nurses constitute a special group having characteristics most suited for disseminating breast cancer information to the women. We assessed the level of knowledge of breast cancer risk factors among registered female nurses in teaching hospitals of Karachi. We also identified whether selected factors among nurses were associated with their knowledge of breast cancer risk factors, so that relevant measures to improve knowledge of nurses could be implemented. Methods A cross-sectional survey was conducted in seven teaching hospitals of Karachi using stratified random sampling with proportional allocation. A total of 609 registered female nurses were interviewed using a structured questionnaire adapted from the Stager's Comprehensive Breast Cancer Knowledge Test. Knowledge of breast cancer risk factors was categorized into good, fair and poor categories. Ordinal regression was used to identify factors associated with risk knowledge among nurses. Results Thirty five percent of nurses had good knowledge of risk factors. Graduates from private nursing schools (aOR = 4.23, 95% CI: 2.93, 6.10, nurses who had cared for breast cancer patients (aOR = 1.41, 95% CI: 1.00, 1.99, those having received a breast examination themselves (aOR = 1.56, 95% CI: 1.08, 2.26 or those who ever examined a patient's breast (aOR = 1.87, 95% CI: 1.34, 2.61 were more likely to have good knowledge. Conclusion A relatively small proportion of the nursing population had good level of knowledge of the breast cancer risk factors. This knowledge is associated with nursing school status, professional breast cancer exposure and self history of clinical breast examination. Since only about one-third of the nurses had good knowledge about risk factors, there is a need to introduce breast cancer education in nursing schools particularly in the public sector. Continuing nursing education at the workplace can be of additional benefit.

La Bioética en la Enseñanza y la Investigación en Enfermería Bioethics in Nursing Teaching and Research  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Se hace imprescindible dada la naturaleza de la Bioética profundizar en su contexto histórico y sus conceptos básicos, principalmente destacar cómo afecta en la actitud de los estudiantes de Enfermería, tanto en sus inicios hasta cuando ya son profesionales. Con el propósito de evaluar cómo está la Bioética en la enseñanza e investigación, se realizó un estudio exploratorio de los planes de estudio de Enfermería de las universidades chilenas, intentando determinar su desarrollo, cómo y dónde está insertada, y así determinar su impacto en los estudiantes de Enfermería. Se detectó que la Enseñanza de la Bioética se encuentra en los últimos años de estudio, tercer y cuarto años, algo similar a lo que ocurre con la investigación. Se pudo comprobar que ambas están insertadas muy tardíamente, teniendo en cuenta que son elementos fundamentales que los estudiantes deben conocer desde el inicio de sus estudios de Enfermería.To deepen in its historical context becomes essential, given the nature of Bioethics and its basic concepts, and mainly emphasizing how affects the attitude of the nursing students, as much in their beginnings as well as when they are already professionals. In order to evaluate how is the Bioethics in the Education and the Investigation, an exploratory study of the study plans of nursing in Chilean Universities was made, trying to determinate how and were it is inserted and in that way determinates its impact in the nursing students and how it is their development. It was detected that the Teaching of Bioethics was found at the final years of study, third and forth grade, a similar issue that happens with Research. Concluding that both are inserted very late being fundamental issues that students must know at the beginnings of their Nursing studies.

Using standardized patients to assess communication skills in medical and nursing students  

LENUS (Irish Health Repository)

Abstract Background A number of recent developments in medical and nursing education have highlighted the importance of communication and consultation skills (CCS). Although such skills are taught in all medical and nursing undergraduate curriculums, there is no comprehensive screening or assessment programme of CCS using professionally trained Standardized Patients Educators (SPE\\'s) in Ireland. This study was designed to test the content, process and acceptability of a screening programme in CCS with Irish medical and nursing students using trained SPE\\'s and a previously validated global rating scale for CCS. Methods Eight tutors from the Schools of Nursing and Medicine at University College Cork were trained in the use of a validated communication skills and attitudes holistic assessment tool. A total of forty six medical students (Year 2 of 5) and sixty four nursing students (Year 2\\/3 of 4) were selected to under go individual CCS assessment by the tutors via an SPE led scenario. Immediate formative feedback was provided by the SPE\\'s for the students. Students who did not pass the assessment were referred for remediation CCS learning. Results Almost three quarters of medical students (33\\/46; 72%) and 81% of nursing students (56\\/64) passed the CCS assessment in both communication and attitudes categories. All nursing students had English as their first language. Nine of thirteen medical students referred for enhanced learning in CCS did not have English as their first language. Conclusions A significant proportion of both medical and nursing students required referral for enhanced training in CCS. Medical students requiring enhanced training were more likely not to have English as a first language.

A Standardized Shift Handover Protocol: Improving Nurses’ Safe Practice in Intensive Care Units  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Introduction: For maintaining the continuity of care and improving the quality of care, effective inter-shift information communication is necessary. Any handover error can endanger patient safety. Despite the importance of shift handover, there is no standard handover protocol in our healthcare settings. Methods In this one-group pretest-posttest quasi-experimental study conducted in spring and summer of 2011, we recruited a convenience sample of 56 ICU nurses. The Nurses’ Safe Practice Evaluation Checklist was used for data collection. The Content Validity Index and the inter-rater correlation coefficient of the checklist was 0.92 and 89, respectively. We employed the SPSS 11.5 software and the Mc Nemar and paired-samples t test for data analysis. Results: Study findings revealed that nurses’ mean score on the Safe Practice Evaluation Checklist increased significantly from 11.6 (2.7 to 17.0 (1.8 (P < 0.001. Conclusion: using a standard handover protocol for communicating patient’s needs and information improves nurses’ safe practice in the area of basic nursing care.

Information model for learning nursing terminology.  

Science.gov (United States)

Standardized terminologies are introduced in healthcare with the intention of improving information quality, which is important for enhancing the quality of healthcare itself. The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP®) is a unified language system that presents an ontology for nursing terminology; it is meant for documentation of nursing diagnoses, nursing interventions and patient outcomes. This paper presents an information model and an application for teaching nursing students how to use ICNP to assist in the planning of nursing care. The model is an integration of ICNP and our catalog ontology, patient journal ontology, and ontology defining task sets. The application for learning nursing terminology offers descriptions of patient situations and then prompts the student to supply nursing statements for diagnoses, goals and interventions. The nursing statements may be selected from catalogues containing premade solutions based on ICNP, or they may be constructed directly by selecting terms from ICNP. PMID:25160170

Mentored learning to teach according to standards-based reform: A critical review  

Science.gov (United States)

This article analyzes literature on mentored learning to teach in ways consistent with the standards reform movement. It suggests that although reformers encourage mentoring for standards-based teaching, the assumptions underlying mentoring programs are often focused not on standards but on emotional and technical support. Mentoring practices are consistent with program assumptions rather than with the assumptions underlying standards-based teaching. Mentoring practices promote novicesâ retention but may not support their learning to teach. Although mentoring practices alone cannot be expected to reform teaching, case studies can illustrate practices for novices learning to teach in reform-minded ways. We argue that policymakers need to find effective ways to educate mentoring program developers and that mentors and researchers need to explore the content and process of reform-minded mentoring.

'I thought I was just going to teach': stories of new nurse academics on transitioning from sessional teaching to continuing academic positions.  

Science.gov (United States)

Currently many nursing faculties and schools employ high numbers of sessional teachers to meet the demands of teaching. Sessional teachers are a source for future continuing academic staff; however, there is little exploration on the experiences of sessional teachers as they transition into the full-time nurse academic role. A qualitative study of 14 registered nurse participants used a story-telling approach to explore the experiences of sessional teachers as they transitioned into full-time and continuing academic roles. Findings revealed that participants had only a very limited understanding of the requirements of the academic role when appointed to it. Thematic analysis revealed two major themes. These were: 'Uncertainty: Dealing with role expectation' and 'Mitigating lack of confidence'. The implications of this paper contributes to and enhances knowledge of the transition experiences of sessional teachers and provides new evidence to suggest that adequate support processes are essential for sessional staff transitioning into permanent, full-time academic positions.

Shifting the Emphasis from Teaching to Learning: Process-Based Assessment in Nurse Education  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Shifting from an emphasis on teaching to learning is a complex task for both teachers and students. This paper reports on a qualitative study of teachers in a nurse specialist education programme meeting this shift in a distance education course. The study aimed to gain a better understanding of the teacher-student relationship by addressing research questions in relation to the students’ role, the learning process, and the assessment process. A didactical design comprising three phases focusing on distinct learning outcomes for the course was adopted. Data were collected through in-depth interviews with teachers and were analysed using inductive thematic analysis. The results indicate a shift towards a problematising and holistic approach to teaching, learning, and assessment. This shift highlighted a teacher-student relationship with a shared responsibility in the orchestration of the learning experience. The overall picture outlines a distance education experience of process-based assessment characterised by the imposition of teachers’ rules and a lack of creativity due to the limited role of ICT merely as a container of content.Distance education; higher education; e-learning

Factors influencing nurses' compliance with Standard Precautions in order to avoid occupational exposure to microorganisms: A focus group study  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Nurses may acquire an infection during the provision of nursing care because of occupational exposure to microorganisms. Relevant literature reports that, compliance with Standard Precautions (a set of guidelines that can protect health care professionals from being exposed to microorganisms is low among nurses. Additionally, high rates of exposure to microorganisms among nurses via several modes (needlesticks, hand contamination with blood, exposure to air-transmitted microorganisms occur. The aim of the study was to study the factors that influence nurses' compliance with Standard Precaution in order to avoid occupational exposure to pathogens, by employing a qualitative research design. Method A focus group approach was used to explore the issue under study. Four focus groups (N = 30 were organised to elicit nurses' perception of the factors that influence their compliance with Standard Precautions. The Health Belief Model (HBM was used as the theoretical framework and the data were analysed according to predetermined criteria. Results Following content analysis, factors that influence nurses' compliance emerged. Most factors could be applied to one of the main domains of the HBM: benefits, barriers, severity, susceptibility, cues to action, and self-efficacy. Conclusions Changing current behavior requires knowledge of the factors that may influence nurses' compliance with Standard Precautions. This knowledge will facilitate in the implementation of programs and preventive actions that contribute in avoiding of occupational exposure.

Examination of the teaching styles of nursing professional development specialists, part II: correlational study on teaching styles and use of adult learning theory.  

Science.gov (United States)

This article, the second in a two-part series, details a correlational study that examined the effects of four variables (graduate degrees in nursing education, professional development training in adult learning theory, nursing professional development [NPD] certification, and NPD specialist experience) on the use of adult learning theory to guide curriculum development. Using the Principles of Adult Learning Scale, 114 NPD specialists tested the hypothesis that NPD specialists with graduate degrees in nursing education, professional development training in adult learning theory, NPD certification, and NPD experience would use higher levels of adult learning theory in their teaching practices to guide curriculum development than those without these attributes. This hypothesis was rejected as regression analysis revealed only one statistically significant predictor variable, NPD certification, influenced the use of adult learning theory. In addition, analysis revealed NPD specialists tended to support a teacher-centered rather than a learner-centered teaching style, indicating NPD educators are not using adult learning theory to guide teaching practices and curriculum development.

Refocusing acute psychiatry, performance management, standards and accountability, a new context for mental health nursing.  

LENUS (Irish Health Repository)

The term \\'performance management\\' has an aversive \\'managerial\\' aspect, is unappealing to many public sector staff and has an \\'image problem\\'. Perhaps as a consequence, it has failed to make a significant impact on Irish public sector workers, notably mental health nurses. In this paper, performance management is introduced and examined within an Irish healthcare context and with reference to its use in other countries. Some of the challenges faced by Irish mental health nurses and the potential benefits of working within a performance managed workplace are discussed. The paper concludes that performance management is likely to increasingly affect nurses, either as active agents or as passive recipients of a change that is thrust on them. The authors anticipate that the performance management \\'image problem\\' will give way to recognition that this is a fundamental change which has the potential to enable health services to change. This change will bring high standards of transparency, worker involvement in decision making, an explicit value base for health services and individual teams. It provides the potential for clear practice standards and high standards of transparency as well as worker welfare in all aspects, including supporting employment and career progression.

Teaching dual-process diagnostic reasoning to doctor of nursing practice students: problem-based learning and the illness script.  

Science.gov (United States)

Accelerating the development of diagnostic reasoning skills for nurse practitioner students is high on the wish list of many faculty. The purpose of this article is to describe how the teaching strategy of problem-based learning (PBL) that drills the hypothetico-deductive or analytic reasoning process when combined with an assignment that fosters pattern recognition (a nonanalytic process) teaches and reinforces the dual process of diagnostic reasoning. In an online Doctor of Nursing Practice program, four PBL cases that start with the same symptom unfold over 2 weeks. These four cases follow different paths as they unfold leading to different diagnoses. Culminating each PBL case, a unique assignment called an illness script was developed to foster the development of pattern recognition. When combined with hypothetico-deductive reasoning drilled during the PBL case, students experience the dual process approach to diagnostic reasoning used by clinicians.

Development, implementation and evaluation of a peer review of teaching (PRoT) initiative in nursing education.  

Science.gov (United States)

For many years, an area of research in higher education has been emerging around the development and implementation of fair and effective peer evaluation programs. Recently, a new body of knowledge has developed regarding the development and implementation of fair and effective peer evaluation programs resulting in formative and summative evaluations. The purpose of this article is to describe the development, implementation, and evaluation of a peer review of teaching (PRoT) program for nursing faculty, initiated at one small comprehensive university in the northeastern United States. Pairs of nursing faculty evaluated each other's teaching, syllabi, and course materials after collaborating in a pre-evaluation conference to discuss goals of the classroom visit. Qualitative data gathered in post project focus groups revealed that faculty found their modified PRoT process to be a mutually beneficial experience that was more useful, flexible and collegial, and less stressful than their previous evaluation process.

Learning Outcomes in Two Different Teaching Approach in Nursing Education in Iran: E-Learning versus Lecture  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Traditional teaching methods used in medical education couldn't meet the need for keeping pace with up to date information. Present study has conducted in order to compare the effect of lecture and e-learning methods on nursing students' learning outcomes in the context of Iran. A cross-over design was applied. Study sample was consisted of 32 students which were in third semester of nursing bachelor program and were passing Maternal Child nursing course. The first part of the course was taught using lecture method during first four weeks; an e-learning method was the technique used to educate the remained part of the course during the second four weeks. Students' learning outcomes in each method, opinion toward and participation with both educational methods was assessed. No significant difference was found between students exam scores in both methods. Considering students' opinion toward educational methods, no significant difference was found between two methods in general but students reported better "capability" and "independency" in e-learning method while lecture was obtained higher scores in "effectiveness on learning" and "motivation" characteristics. E-learning can be used in teaching some nursing courses. It is recommended to use e-learning method with appropriate interactive strategies and attractive virtual environments to motivate students

Community health nurses’ learning needs in relation to the Canadian community health nursing standards of practice: results from a Canadian survey  

Science.gov (United States)

Background Canadian Community health nurses (CHNs) work in diverse urban, rural, and remote settings such as: public health units/departments, home health, community health facilities, family practices, and other community-based settings. Research into specific learning needs of practicing CHNs is sparsely reported. This paper examines Canadian CHNs learning needs in relation to the 2008 Canadian Community Health Nursing Standards of Practice (CCHN Standards). It answers: What are the learning needs of CHNs in Canada in relation to the CCHN Standards? What are differences in CHNs’ learning needs by: province and territory in Canada, work setting (home health, public health and other community health settings) and years of nursing practice? Methods Between late 2008 and early 2009 a national survey was conducted to identify learning needs of CHNs based on the CCHN Standards using a validated tool. Results Results indicated that CHNs had learning needs on 25 of 88 items (28.4%), suggesting CHNs have confidence in most CCHN Standards. Three items had the highest learning needs with mean scores > 0.60: two related to epidemiology (means 0.62 and 0.75); and one to informatics (application of information and communication technology) (mean = 0.73). Public health nurses had a greater need to know about “…evaluating population health promotion programs systematically” compared to home health nurses (mean 0.66 vs. 0.39, p educators and practice leaders need to consider these results in determining where to strengthen content in graduate and undergraduate nursing programs, as well as professional development programs. For practicing CHNs educational content should be tailored based on learner’s years of experience in the community and their employment sector. PMID:25349531

A KAP study on graduate nursing students of a tertiary health care teaching hospital in rural West Bengal, India.  

Science.gov (United States)

Nursing personnel are the largest deliverer of health care worldwide, responsible for the constant care of in-patients. They are the most important link between doctors and patients. This study evaluated the knowledge, attitudes and practices of nursing students about different health care related aspects, which must have a profound impact on the quality service of any health care setup. Nursing students from a tertiary care teaching hospital from West Bengal, India were interviewed using a semi-structured pretested questionnaire. The subjects had sound knowledge regarding malaria, HIV disease transmission; possess positive attitude and good practices about medications. There was increased tendency of self-medication, which was alarming. The study showed improvement in knowledge of the nursing students during their nursing curriculum. It is clear from the present study that the efforts in spreading the knowledge about medicaments and disease have met with success to some extent. Furthermore tremendous effort has to be taken to convert the theoretical knowledge into 'safe practices'. PMID:24592786

Teaching communication and therapeutic relationship skills to baccalaureate nursing students: a peer mentorship simulation approach.  

Science.gov (United States)

The literature on techniques for improving student competency in therapeutic communication and interpersonal skills is limited. A simulation approach to enhance the learning of communication skills was developed to address these issues. Second-semester and senior nursing students participated in videorecorded standardized patient simulations, with senior students portraying the patient. Following simulated interactions, senior students provided feedback to junior students on their use of communication skills and other therapeutic factors. To integrate the learning experience, junior students completed a written assignment, in which they identified effective and noneffective communication; personal strengths and weaknesses; and use of genuineness, empathy, and positive regard. A videorecording of each student interaction gave faculty the opportunity to provide formative feedback to students. Student evaluations have been positive. Themes identified in student evaluations include the impact of seeing oneself, significance of practicing, getting below the surface in communication, and moving from insight to goal setting.

Using the virtual reality world of second life to teach nursing faculty simulation management.  

Science.gov (United States)

Healthcare faculty members have come to depend on the advantages of teaching with clinical simulation, but not all faculty are competent in their ability to manage students during the simulation experience. This federally funded proposal provided the opportunity for nursing faculty to participate in a synchronous learning event using the virtual reality world of Second Life (SL). Based on competencies, faculty participants were guided through the simulation process by a "Master Teacher." Participants then became the teacher and chose the settings, objectives, and clinical data to manage their own simulation using avatar role assignments. Feedback populated the participant informatics dashboard, so that progress towards their competencies was recorded. Another unique informatics application was the use of the Synthetic Derivative project to use de-identified patient data to promote better clinical realism. Additional evaluation activities regarding content, appropriate use of the technology, and design features were assessed. The development of the SL environment for this educational study provides the setting in which to pilot test the provision of actual clinical care that does not require "hands-on" interventions.

On the initiative of the World health organization, the international School of nursing university education opens in Lyon on September the 6th, 1965 and closes 30 years later. After having approached the national and international context of this creation, the study, based on archives and contemporary printed sources and various interviews of living witnesses, boarding and teaching, only-female staff present at the opening of the School, shows that it's all about pioneers and activists to the nursing cause, each of them doing it her own way. The background, the training, the personality, the educational choices and the publications of most of them give evidence of their will to contribute actively to the development and valuation of nursing as a discipline without naming it, by being inspired by foreign experiences well ahead of the french situation at the time. Good intentions to confront with the complex reality of the stakes and games of the numerous actors involved in those years realization. PMID:22880500

Diffraction and interference--a standard teaching topic using non-standard diffracting objects  

Science.gov (United States)

This topic--diffraction and interference--is a standard topic in teaching wave optics in schools and universities as well as in physics practical labs. The theoretical presentation needs some knowledge in mathematics; the final formula for the intensity pattern as a function of all parameters such as number of slits N, slit width b, slit distance d, wavelength ? of light used is not too complicated. The experimental setup is standard and well known. In our opinion the shortage comes here from the relatively poor quality of scattering objects produced by photolithography and by the small number of various objects in N, b and d. We on the contrary offer objects produced by electron beam lithography with much higher contrast and larger resolution. As a consequence, students are allowed to study not only positions of a few maxima and minima of the interference pattern, but determine relative intensities of maxima and minima with respect to central maximum, details around sub-maxima, band shape and bandwidth. In addition, we generated 150 objects with a variety in N, b and d and also offer five different wavelengths. Since these objects are hardly available and not so easy to copy we offer this experiment as a remotely controlled laboratory experiment which means the real experiment located in A can be used by everyone with his or her computer located in B via the Internet.

Using Standardized Case Vignettes to Evaluate Nursing Home Staff Recognition of Delirium and Delirium Superimposed on Dementia  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this study is to describe nursing home staff knowledge regarding delirium detection and the most common causes of delirium. Specific aims that guided this study include identifying the rate of nurse recognition of delirium and delirium superimposed on dementia (DSD), including different motoric subtypes of delirium, using standardized case vignettes, and exploring what nursing home staff describe as the potential causes of delirium. The study showed overall poor recognition of delirium and DSD, which did not improve over time. Interventions have the potential to increase the early detection of delirium and DSD by the staff and warrant development.

[A Taiwan nursing perspective on current imbalances in educating, licensing and hiring new nurses].  

Science.gov (United States)

Level of development in the nursing profession affects healthcare quality and safety. The nursing profession in Taiwan today faces myriad external pressures such as the global financial crisis and rapidly changing national health insurance policies and social issues. For example, cutbacks in nursing manpower at medical institutions and increasingly difficult healthcare working conditions are increasing nurse workloads and turnover, conflict in the workplace, and difficulties in recruiting new nursing staff. Such negative developments directly and negatively impact professional development, healthcare quality, healthcare safety, and workplace morale. In terms of maintaining and enhancing the quality of new nurses entering the profession, rapid growth in numbers of technology schools and nursing students have severely strained insufficient resources and resulted in teaching quality and education outcomes below expectations. Poor passing rates on the national nursing license examination and increasingly high new nurse turnover are now significant negative factors influencing clinical manpower availability. Imbalances among education, licensing, and hiring clearly and negatively impact nursing professional development and social needs and cause the inefficient allocation of limited education resources. This article discusses and analyzes the causes underlying current imbalances in nurse hiring, licensing, and education. We provide the following suggestions: (1) Integrate education and licensing activities based on professional recruitment considerations to promote nursing competent and manpower stability; (2) revise the focus and content of the national license examination to resolve the current disconnect between license examination and hiring needs; (3) redesign curricula, update teaching material, and adjust teaching methods based on professional competencies in order to resolve key education and recruitment problems. All nursing schools should prepare their students well to pass the license examination in order to resolve the current state of inconsistent educational standards, and (4) train international nursing talent to address and reflect international medical care trends and policies in Taiwan. This paper is intended to serve as reference for both policymakers and professionals in the nursing and healthcare fields. PMID:23034543

The use of computers to teach human anatomy and physiology to allied health and nursing students  

Science.gov (United States)

Educational institutions are under tremendous pressure to adopt the newest technologies in order to prepare their students to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. For the last twenty years huge amounts of money have been spent on computers, printers, software, multimedia projection equipment, and so forth. A reasonable question is, "Has it worked?" Has this infusion of resources, financial as well as human, resulted in improved learning? Are the students meeting the intended learning goals? Any attempt to develop answers to these questions should include examining the intended goals and exploring the effects of the changes on students and faculty. This project investigated the impact of a specific application of a computer program in a community college setting on students' attitudes and understanding of human anatomy and physiology. In this investigation two sites of the same community college with seemingly similar students populations, seven miles apart, used different laboratory activities to teach human anatomy and physiology. At one site nursing students were taught using traditional dissections and laboratory activities; at the other site two of the dissections, specifically cat and sheep pluck, were replaced with the A.D.A.M.RTM (Animated Dissection of Anatomy for Medicine) computer program. Analysis of the attitude data indicated that students at both sites were extremely positive about their laboratory experiences. Analysis of the content data indicated a statistically significant difference in performance between the two sites in two of the eight content areas that were studied. For both topics the students using the computer program scored higher. A detailed analysis of the surveys, interviews with faculty and students, examination of laboratory materials, and observations of laboratory facilities in both sites, and cost-benefit analysis led to the development of seven recommendations. The recommendations call for action at the level of the institution requiring investment in additional resources, and at the level of the faculty requiring a commitment to exploration and reflective practice.

Examination of the teaching styles of nursing professional development specialists, part I: best practices in adult learning theory, curriculum development, and knowledge transfer.  

Science.gov (United States)

The American Nurses Association advocates for nursing professional development (NPD) specialists to have an earned graduate degree, as well as educational and clinical expertise. However, many NPD specialists have limited exposure to adult learning theory. Limited exposure to adult learning theory may affect NPD educational practices, learning outcomes, organizational knowledge transfer, and subsequently, the professional development of the nurses they serve and quality of nursing care. An examination of current teaching practices may reveal opportunities for NPD specialists to enhance educational methods to promote learning, learning transfer, and organizational knowledge and excellence. This article, the first in a two-part series, examines best practices of adult learning theories, nursing professional development, curriculum design, and knowledge transfer. Part II details the results of a correlational study that examined the effects of four variables on the use of adult learning theory to guide curriculum development for NPD specialists in hospitals.

A Continuing Challenge: The Shortage of Educationally Prepared Nursing Faculty  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The profession is facing a unique shortage of nursing faculty. Schools of Nursing have always had a shortage of doctorally prepared nursing faculty. The academic norm for faculty teaching in baccalaureate and graduate programs to hold earned doctoral degrees was established later in nursing than for other disciplines. At best, 50% of nursing faculty in such programs have met this academic standard. In addition, the shortage is predicted to escalate in the next decade due to the retirement of a "graying professoriate" of nursing faculty. The shortage of nursing faculty is interwoven with the current national shortage of nurses. The shortage of nurses requires the educational programs of the profession to supply more graduates. But the shortage of nursing faculty will limit student enrollments and likely decrease the number of graduates. Conversely, the shortage of nurses will offer many opportunities and choices to nurses and may decrease the number selecting graduate studies and an academic career, thus contributing to the shortage of nursing faculty The shortage of nursing faculty will also have consequences for the generation of the knowledge base for nursing practice. With a decreased number of individuals to conduct research and the loss of senior investigators through retirement, continuing development of nursing's knowledge base may be curtailed. The shortage of nursing faculty will also limit the professional leaders who are able to shape health policy in the state, national, and international arenas. This article outlines a number of factors influencing the shortage of nursing faculty. Several institutional School of Nursing strategies are suggested for countering the shortage situation. In addition, several national professional and policy strategies are suggested. More creative strategies need to be developed and evaluated by Schools of Nursing and by the profession.

The interrelatedness of nurses' career commitment and job performance is debated. In nursing, few studies have focused on the relationship between the two concepts. A convenience sample of 640 registered nurses (RNs) from 24 hospitals was recruited. A comparative design was used to assess differences among governmental, teaching and private hospitals in regard to the concepts measured. In general, nurses were found to "agree" that they had a lifelong commitment to their careers, and that they were performing "well" their jobs in accordance with standards. Hospitals in the sample differed in most demographics except in gender, areas of work and decision-making styles. Based on the total scores of nurses' career commitment, there were no significant differences across hospitals. Based on the total scores of nurses' job performance, F-tests indicated some differences; the highest mean was at private hospitals. Using dimensional means of nurses' job performance uncovered no significant differences among hospitals. Individual items of nurses' job performance subscales differed, in some cases significantly, particularly for nurses working at private hospitals: nurses' career commitment was correlated positively and significantly with their job performance. Consistent with the current researchers' hypothesis, nurses' career commitment appears to influence job performance and is influenced by the nurses' characteristics and organizational factors in the workplace. Enhancing nurses' career commitment and their job performance should produce positive outcomes for nurses, patients and organizations. PMID:18536539

A service-learning experience to teach baccalaureate nursing students about health policy.  

Science.gov (United States)

Incorporating health promotion strategies in practice, and in particular within healthy public policy based on the Ottawa Charter, is widely recognized as within the mandate of nursing, although evidence suggests that nurses are reluctant to take on this role. An innovative strategy was developed to facilitate baccalaureate nursing students' learning about healthy public policy by immersing them in a real-world service-learning experience. Students partnered with a population, assessed the determinants of health, and implemented a population health promotion strategy that included attention to a health policy issue. Students identified strengths and weaknesses of the existing policy and were required to propose recommendations for change that addressed the social justice issues. Students presented their work to faculty, students, and community partners and developed a written position paper on the topic. Students evaluated the service-learning experience as an excellent experiential learning opportunity. PMID:21417191

Implementation of evidence-based nursing practice for diabetic patients: an Iranian experience.  

Science.gov (United States)

Evidence-based nursing is recognized as an indicator of quality in nursing practice, a basis for accountability and the gold standard of professional nursing care. The aim of this study was to explore nurses' experiences and perceptions about evidence-based nursing practice in giving care to patients with diabetic foot ulcers. A qualitative research design was adopted, and content analysis was used to analyse data. Semistructured interviews were held with 19 bachelor-degree nurses working in a teaching hospital in an urban area of Iran. During data analysis, two main themes developed: 'structural backgrounds of the organization' and 'empowerment'. Accordingly, it was concluded that successful implementation of evidence-based nursing requires the reconfiguration of the administrative structure in the hospital. In addition, it requires the support of nurse leaders to facilitate the implementation of evidence-based nursing in the practice. PMID:24090300

The Effect of Simulation Teaching on Baccalaureate Nursing Students’ Self - confidence Related to Peripheral Venous Catheterization in Children : A Randomized Trial  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Introduction:In recent decades, nursing instructors have tended to use simulation rather than traditional methods due to benefits such as increased self-confidence. However, little academic literature is available to verify this claim. The procedure of establishing peripheral venous catheterization in pediatric patients is of great importance. Therefore, the researchers attempted to review the effect of the simulation teaching method on nursing students' self-confidence related to peripheral venous catheterization in pediatric patients. Methods:In this trial, 45 students in the 5th and 6th semester of nursing school in the first half of school year 2012 from the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Iran, were randomly assigned to three groups (a control group, and two intervention groups. They were trained in establishing peripheral venous catheterization in pediatric patients through simulation teaching method and practical training. The students' self-confidence was assessed by C-Scale before and after the intervention. Results:The students’ self-confidence score showed a significant increase in the simulation group after the intervention in comparison to other groups (p = 0.03. Conclusion:Results revealed a significant increase in self-confidence of nursing students related to peripheral venous catheterization in pediatric patients by simulation. This substantiates the assertion that simulation can improve self-confidence. Due to the low sample size, further studies with larger population are suggested.

Nueva estructura para la enseñanza-aprendizaje de la materia de enfermería clínica en los estudios de Grado de Enfermería / A new structure for the teaching-learning of the subject of clinical nursing in Nursing Degree studies  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Spain | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish En el Grado de Enfermería, los cambios requeridos para la adaptación al Espacio Europeo de Educación Superior se han orientado a la introducción de novedades metodológicas que han propiciado la génesis de nuevos enfoques para la enseñanza y el aprendizaje, con el objetivo último de disminuir los des [...] ajustes que en algunas ocasiones se han detectado entre la teoría y la práctica. En esta línea, partiendo de las necesidades actuales de la formación en relación a la materia de enfermería clínica del grado y de las competencias profesionales, se inició un proceso de reflexión y análisis que originó una nueva estructura organizativa de la materia. Este nuevo enfoque nace con el objetivo fundamental de mejorar la docencia de la enfermería clínica, actualizando la forma de enseñar la enfermería y los cuidados enfermeros. Lejos del modelo biomédico centrado en la enfermedad que ha imperado hasta ahora, el nuevo enfoque parte de una visión profundamente enfermera y, en consecuencia, hace explícitos los cuidados de la persona con un trastorno real o potencial de la salud. Los resultados de la implementación de esta nueva estructura en la asignatura 'Enfermería clínica I' de segundo curso de grado ponen de manifiesto que hay una mejora en la precisión diagnóstica y en la etapa de planificación del proceso enfermero, así como en la identificación de la responsabilidad profesional en los ejes autónomo e interdisciplinar. Abstract in english In Nursing Degree there have been many changes for adapting to the European Higher Education Area aimed to changing methodologies, but have also given rise to new approaches to teaching and learning. Their ultimate goal is to reduce the maladjustments have sometimes been found between theory and pra [...] ctice. Based on the education needs in the field of clinical nursing and also in professional competences, began a process of reflection and analysis resulted in a new organizational structure of matter. This new approach starts with the fundamental objective of improving the teaching of clinical nursing, updating the way we teach nursing and nursing care. Away from the biomedical model focused on the disease that has prevailed until now, the new approach comes from a nursing perspective, and therefore, makes explicit the care of the person with an actual or potential health disturbance. The results of implementing this new approach to the subject 'Clinical Nursing I' in second year of degree studies, show that the new structure represents an improvement in diagnostic accuracy and planning in the nursing process and the identification of responsibility in the independent and interdisciplinary professional axes.

Computer and internet use by first year clinical and nursing students in a Nigerian teaching hospital  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background The internet is an important source of up-to-date medical information. Although several studies in different countries have explored the extent to which health science students use the computer and the internet, few researches are available on this subject in Nigeria. The aim of this study was to assess the uptake of computer and internet by health science students studying in the country. Methods One hundred and eighty three first year medical and nursing students of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria, completed a-25 item questionnaire during routine Library Orientation Program in the medical library. The EPI-Info software was used for data analysis. Results The mean ages for medical students and the student nurses were 22 and 24.6 years respectively. Overall, 42.6% of the entire sample could use the computer, 57.4% could not. While more than half (58% of the medical students are computer literate, majority (75.9% of the student nurses are not. Slightly more than two thirds (60.7% of the entire students had ever used the internet, 33. 9% had not. E-mail was the most popular of internet services used by the students (76.4% and the cyber café was the common place where students had accessed these services. The students' mean scores on a 15-point perceived self-efficacy scale for internet-related tasks was 3.8 for medical and 0.7 for nursing students (p = 0.00. Students who are computer literate had superior mean scores (4.8 than those without (0.6 (p = 0.000. Conclusion First year clinical and nursing students in Ibadan Nigeria have not fully utilised the opportunity that the use of computer and internet offer for medical education. Improved efforts such as inclusion of computer education in medical and nursing curricular and establishment of computer laboratories are required to increase the student's access to computers and internet.

Seeing is believing - reducing misconceptions about children's hospice care through effective teaching with undergraduate nursing students.  

Science.gov (United States)

Children's palliative care has evolved in recent years and is now recognised as a distinct area of health and social care practice. Whilst children's hospices are viewed as central to quality care for these children and families, lack of knowledge regarding the exact nature of care they provide exists. Education can go part way to changing attitudes and knowledge about the key contribution of hospices, thus improving future care. Alternative and innovative strategies to stimulate meaningful learning are pivotal to children's nurse education and this paper examines one such innovation adopted with 2nd year children's nursing students. Aiming to help students explore the ethos of children's hospice an educational visit was arranged, followed by an on line discussion. Although some practical challenges were encountered, the visit heightened student awareness moving them from the readily held perception that children's hospices were exclusively for dying children and was viewed by students as more effective than a traditional classroom session.

Health teaching in the context of culture: nursing in East Africa.  

Science.gov (United States)

A nurse from the US worked as a community health nurse with the Mennonite Central Committee in East Africa from 1981-1983. She addressed the importance of health care providers being able to incorporate the context of culture, religion, and socioeconomic status into identifying health care needs and intervention. This was complicated by differences in values and beliefs between the urban and rural populations. Many people believed that spirits of the dead influence their behavior and sense of family. Indeed many thought that spirits or mystical events cause illness. This made health education difficult. For example, people in rural Uganda believed infestation of guinea worm was due to mystical causes. Therefore they were not motivated to filter their water and visited traditional healers for treatment. Many in rural East Africa did not eat any meat so the nurse tried to find sources of protein for their diet, such as ground nuts and insects. Unlike urban areas, large families were preferred in rural areas so she promoted maternal and child health by child spacing. In fact, birth control in urban areas was used often. Rural women were often tired because of many demands on them. For example, they fetched 90% of the water involving 3-4 hours/day and planted 80% of the food. When wells were dug closer to the women, they had less time to interact socially which meant more work in the field. In urban areas, however, women had a higher status. Urban dwellers faced different values and individual priorities than rural dwellers. For example, the tribe and family did not have such a strong hold, but some tried to live an urban and a rural lifestyle. Rural-urban migration has created many social problems such as labor shortages. PMID:2046219

The windmill of learning processes : a learning and teaching tool for student nurses and mentors  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

 This article presents a new approach to student nurses' learning from their interaction with psychiatric patients. Using the approach can enable students and mentors to exploit students' learning opportunities, and help students to get the most out of their clinical placement in a time, where that part of the nursing education has been reduced in some countries as e.g. Denmark. The approach is presented through a model termed the ‘Windmill of Learning Processes’, which draws on empirical data from a qualitative investigation with an explorative and descriptive design, and on the theoretical concepts of ‘disjuncture’, and ‘everyday life activities’. ‘Disjuncture’ is defined as a situation in which there is disharmony between a person's experiences and the current situation. In such a situation there is potential for learning. My analysis of the empirical data led to the identification of a new concept, which I have labelled ‘collective not-conscious disjuncture’. This is when the student and the mentor are both unaware that the student is operating in a potential learning situation. ‘Everyday life activities’ are seen as activities that are known to succeed in specific situations, because they have done so in similar situations. I have expanded upon the concept to define another phenomenon, which I have coined ‘pseudo-everyday life activities’. These closely resemble everyday life activities, but take place in a psychiatric context. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved

A correlation study involving a comparison of professional science teaching standards and student performance  

Science.gov (United States)

If international report cards were issued today, to all industrialized nations world wide, the United States would receive a "C" at best in mathematics and science. This is not simply a temporary or simple cause and effect circumstance that can easily be addressed. The disappointing truth is that this downward trend in mathematics and science mastery by American students has been occurring steadily for at least the last eight years of international testing, and that there are numerous and varied bases for this reality. In response to this crisis, The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and The National Research Council (NRC) each have proposed relatively consistent, but individual sets of professional science teaching standards, designed to improve science instruction in American schools. It is of extreme value to the scientific, educational community to know if any or all of these standards lead to improved student performance. This study investigates the correlation between six, specific teacher behaviors that are common to these national standards and which behaviors, if any, result in improved student performance, as demonstrated on the Science Reasoning sub-test of the ACT Assessment. These standards focus classroom science teachers on professional development, leading toward student mastery of scientific interpretation, concept development, and constructive relationship building. Because all individual teachers interpret roles, expectations, and guiding philosophies from different lenses, effective professional practice may reflect consistency in rationale and methodology yet will be best evidenced by an examination of specific teaching techniques. In this study, these teaching techniques are evidenced by self-reported teacher awareness and adherence to these consensual standards. Assessment instruments vary widely, and the results of student performance often reflect the congruency of curricular methodology and explicit testing domains. Although the recent educational impetus for change is most notably governed numerically by test scores, the true goal of scientific literacy is in the application of logic. Therefore, the ultimate thematic analysis in this study attempts to relate both educational theory and practice with positive change at the classroom level. The data gathered in this study is insufficient in establishing a significant correlation between adherence to national science teaching standards and student performance on the ACT in Jefferson County, Kentucky, for either public or Catholic school students. However, with respect to mean student scores on the Science Reasoning sub-test of the ACT, there is statistically significant evidence for superior performance of Catholic school students compared with that of public school students in this region.

An Evaluation of the Teaching Practice Curriculum in Light of the Standards-Based Evaluation Model  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This study was conducted to identify standards related to the objectives, content, learning-teaching process, evaluation, practice teacher and university practice teacher dimensions of the teaching practice curriculum and their actualization level in light of the standards-based evaluation model. The study follows the singular descriptive model and its population comprises practicing teacher candidates and university practice teachers from education faculties located in the Eastern and Southeastern Turkish provinces of Elaz??, Erzincan, Erzurum, Diyarbak?r, Malatya and A?r?, and practice teachers working at Directorates of National Education in these provinces. The “simple random sampling method” was used in the study and 1,392 of the 2,075 individuals in the population were included in the sample. A 95-item scale was designed by the researchers to be used as the data collection tool. After completing the several stages of the scale development process, a pilot study was conducted on 312 candidate teachers using the draft scale consisting of 134 draft standards. The pilot study showed that the reliability coefficients of the study were Cronbach Alpha=.979, Bartlett= 59501.482 (p=0.000 and df= 17955 and Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO=.850 and the load factor values of the scale was over .45. In addition, the test retest, parallel test and split half test reliability analyses of the scale were also made. The data were analyzed by using frequency and percentage, arithmetic mean, and standard deviation techniques. As a result of the study, a total of 95 standards were identified, 16 of which were in the objectives dimension, 15 in the content dimension, 14 in the learning-teaching process dimension, 14 in the evaluation dimension, 18 in the practice dimension, and 18 in the practice teacher dimension. It was also found that the standards in the objectives, content, evaluation and university practice teacher dimensions were actualized “Partially”, while those in the learning-teaching process and practice teacher dimensions were actualized “Fairly”.© 2013 IOJES.

Teaching about vulnerable populations: nursing students' experience in a homeless center.  

Science.gov (United States)

Cultural competence is not limited to ethnicity, religion, or race but is inclusive of vulnerable groups, such as the homeless. The complex health and social issues related to homelessness requires educational instruction that supports students' ability to address and care for the multidimensional elements that surround this group. Exposure to homeless populations provides nursing students with increased awareness of the issues related to health disparities, while promoting introspective reflection on one's values and beliefs. To increase student exposure to working with homeless clients, a service-learning project using a critical social theory (CST) lens was offered at a homeless center. The students' response that clients were "just like" them, coupled with ambiguity regarding the complex social-economic-political issues surrounding the homeless, may indicate a need for further education regarding cultural understanding, sensitivity, and vulnerability. This project demonstrates the need for learning experiences that support advocacy and social responsibility for vulnerable groups. PMID:24040771

Effectiveness of an audience response system in teaching pharmacology to baccalaureate nursing students.  

Science.gov (United States)

It has been proposed that students' use of an audience response system, commonly called clickers, may promote comprehension and retention of didactic material. Whether this method actually improves students' grades, however, is still not determined. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether a lecture format utilizing multiple-choice PowerPoint slides and an audience response system was more effective than a lecture format using only multiple-choice PowerPoint slides in the comprehension and retention of pharmacological knowledge in baccalaureate nursing students. The study also assessed whether the additional use of clickers positively affected students' satisfaction with their learning. Results from 78 students who attended lecture classes with multiple-choice PowerPoint slides plus clickers were compared with those of 55 students who utilized multiple-choice PowerPoint slides only. Test scores between these two groups were not significantly different. A satisfaction questionnaire showed that 72.2% of the control students did not desire the opportunity to use clickers. Of the group utilizing the clickers, 92.3% recommend the use of this system in future courses. The use of multiple-choice PowerPoint slides and an audience response system did not seem to improve the students' comprehension or retention of pharmacological knowledge as compared with those who used solely multiple-choice PowerPoint slides.

Hospital Compliance with Clinical Documentation Standards: A Descriptive Study in Two Iranian Teaching Hospitals  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background and Objectives: Standard clinical documentation is an integral part of quality patient care. This study aimed to explore compliance of two Iranian teaching hospitals with the clinical documentation standards.Methods: A total of 400 records were surveyed. Data were collected using a checklist of standard measures. The checklist comprised 15 items selected from relevant guidelines from either the American Health Informa­tion Management Association or Iranian Ministry of Health and Medical Education. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics.Findings: On average, 50.2% of medical records were provided in high compliance with standard measures, 26.4% in moderate compliance, and 23.4% in non-compliance. The average highest frequency of compliance with documentation standard was received by “Only blue ink is used for writing” (92%, followed by “Consent forms are completed” (79% and “Highlighter pen or correction pen is avoided” (71%. The average lowest frequency of compliance with standards was identified for “Admission form is typed and inserted as first page” (0.5% followed by “Unusable elements for patient are mentioned” (0.75%, and both “Error corrections (if any are signed and dated by the editor.” (2.52%, and “Cause of error reporting (if any is mentioned.” (2.52%.Conclusions: Our results indicated an unsatisfactory level of compliance with clinical documentation standards in the studied hospitals. In addition, some of the lowest rated measures were related to documentation of errors in data re­cording and their subsequent correction, which can potentially lead to adverse patient outcome or legal consequences. Hence, our study provides further evidence for the urgency of developing strategies to improve commitment of Iranian hospitals to clinical documentation standards.

Compliance To the Hypertension Control Program and the Standardized Nursing Results: an exploratory study  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Arterial hypertension is a public health issue, the control of which represents a challenge for professionals, especially nurses, whose participation takes place on three levels of prevention of this disease. However, it is common to observe care still geared towards the biomedical role. In view of this context, this main objective of this study was to analyze compliance with guidelines supplied by the Hypertension Control Program nurse from a Health Center in Fortaleza, relating these findings to the Classification of Nursing Results. Sixty-four individuals comprised the set of research subjects, data being collected by means of interviews held between March and December 2004. It was found that the clientele is informed of necessary changes to living habits for control of the disease. However, for social, financial, structural or organic reasons, they often fail to implement such changes. It is essential that care be given in which the individual feels secure and comfortable enough to come to monitoring appointments. Nevertheless, complying with guidelines depends on social factors, which must be minimized by means a joint action by all segments of society.

Preparing nursing students to be competent for future professional practice: applying the team-based learning-teaching strategy.  

Science.gov (United States)

Team-based learning (TBL) has been used for many years in business and science, but little research has focused on its application in nursing education. This quasi-experimental study was to apply the TBL in four nursing courses at a university in Taiwan and to evaluate its effect on students' learning outcomes and behaviors. Adult health nursing, maternal-child nursing, community health nursing, and medical-surgical nursing were the 4 designated courses for this study. Three hundred ninety-nine students in 2-year registered nurse-bachelor of science in nursing, and regular 4-year nursing programs enrolled in the designated courses were contacted. Three hundred eighty-seven students agreed to participate in the data collection. Results showed that the TBL significantly improved the learning behaviors of students in both programs, including class engagement (p academic performance. The study revealed that TBL generally improves students' learning behaviors and academic performance. These learning behaviors are important and beneficial for the students' future professional development. The TBL method can be considered for broader application in nursing education. PMID:25150421

A standards-based, peer-reviewed teaching award to enhance a medical school's teaching environment and inform the promotions process.  

Science.gov (United States)

The authors provide the rationale, design, and description of a unique teaching award that has enhanced Baylor College of Medicine's teaching environment and become highly valued by the promotions and tenure (P&T) committee in determining a faculty member's readiness for promotion. This award is self-nominating and standards based. The primary purpose for development of the award was to provide the Baylor community and the P&T committee a method to understand and value the scholarship of teaching to the same degree that they understand and value the scholarship of discovery.The authors also present results from an internal evaluation of the program that included a survey and interviews. Between the inception of the award in 2001 and the internal review conducted in 2010, the award could have had an influence on the promotion of 130 of the recipients. Of the 130, 88 (65.6%) received this award before gaining their current rank (? (1) = 16.3, P recipients stated that the award is good for the institution by encouraging reflection on teaching; increasing the recognition, importance, and value of teaching; encouraging the improvement of teaching skills; and providing a better understanding to others about what medical teachers really do. Of the 214 open-ended responses to survey questions of award recipients, more than half the comments were about the value of the award and its positive effect on promotion. PMID:22622222

Social media in nursing education: responsible integration for meaningful use.  

Science.gov (United States)

The astonishing popularity of social media and its emergence into the academic arena has shown tremendous potential for innovations in teaching. The appeal of using social media in the learning environment is enhanced by accessibility and affordability. However, it has also broadened the scope of consideration for protecting student privacy. This article explores the legal impact of privacy concerns when social media is used as a teaching tool. Institutions of higher learning must formulate guidelines that will govern appropriate social media use so that novel teaching modalities can be safely explored. Students must be educated by faculty regarding the standards of conduct and privacy considerations related to social media. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing has issued the White Paper: A Nurse's Guide to the Use of Social Media, a must-read for nursing faculty in the current academic arena. PMID:24530130

[Taiwan occupational health nursing: practices, policies and future trends].  

Science.gov (United States)

The steady evolution of domestic industries and the continued expansion of the workforce have outdated Taiwan's traditional model of occupational health nursing, which focuses on preventing work-related diseases and ensuring workplace safety. Professional-competency evaluations, now widely used within the medical and other professional communities to confirm that individuals have mastered relevant knowledge and skills, are a fixture in service quality management and related strategies. Occupational health nurses have a critical role in promoting and ensuring the quality of occupational-health related services. A multifaceted strategy is needed to update the domestic model of occupational health nursing. This strategy should include: 1) Set professional standards and create standard teaching materials for national occupational health nurses; 2) Enhance the professional efficacy of nurses in this field; 3) Survey the relevant role functions and education/training needs of occupational health nurses; 4) Develop relevant elective courses; and 5) Format courses/curricula for e-learning and for multimedia platforms. Furthermore, after implementation of this strategy, the model should be evaluated in terms of the knowledge and skills acquired by occupational health nurses. It is hoped that by reflecting local needs and experiences this new model will update the field of occupational health nursing to meet the needs of the current and future workplace in Taiwan and increase nursing knowledge and skills in order to foster and sustain healthy workplace environments.

Competence of newly qualified registered nurses from a nursing college  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The South African education and training system, through its policy of outcomesbased education and training, has made competency a national priority. In compliance to this national requirement of producing competent learners, the South African Nursing Council ( 1999 B require that the beginner professional nurse practitioners and midwives have the necessary knowledge, skills, attitudes and values which will enable them to render efficient professional service. The health care system also demands competent nurse practitioners to ensure quality in health care. In the light of competency being a national priority and a statutory demand, the research question that emerges is, how competent are the newly qualified registered nurses from a specific nursing college in clinical nursing education? A quantitative, non-experimental contextual design was used to evaluate the competence of newly qualified registered nurses from a specific nursing college. The study was conducted in two phases. The first phase dealt with the development of an instrument together with its manual through the conceptualisation process. The second phase focused on the evaluation of the competency of newly qualified nurses using the instrument based on the steps of the nursing process. A pilot study was conducted to test the feasibility of the items of the instrument. During the evaluation phase, a sample of twenty-six newly qualified nurses was selected by simple random sampling from a target population of thirty-six newly qualified registered nurses. However, six participants withdrew from the study. Data was collected in two general hospitals where the newly qualified registered nurses were working. Observation and questioning were used as data collection techniques in accordance with the developed instrument. Measures were taken to ensure internal validity and reliability of the results. To protect the rights of the participants, the researcher adhered to DENOSA’S (1998:2.2.1 ethical standards of research. A descriptive statistical method of data analysis was used in this study. Findings revealed that newly qualified registered nurses were not competent. The highest score obtained was 51 % and the lowest score was 22% with an average score of 34.05%. The results concerning the implementation of the phases of the nursing process indicated that participants were fairly competent in terms of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values of assessment. Participants had very little knowledge of nursing diagnosis and were not competent on the skills of diagnosis. Participants lacked basic knowledge, skills, attitudes and values of the nursing process. They lacked critical thinking skills in their approach to providing quality patient care. The recommendations of the study relate to improving the system of clinical accompaniment, reviewing the clinical facilities where learners are allocated, reviewing the implementation of the curriculum, the methods of teaching and the quality assurance mechanisms that are in place. Further research is recommended on competence of newly qualified registered nurses at other nursing colleges or similar context.

NURSES BRING NEW FAMILY PLANNING METHODS TO COMMUNITIES: STANDARD DAYS METHOD AND LACTATIONAL AMENORRHEA METHOD  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available All couples should have the ability to decide how many children to have and when to have them. Nurses represent the critical link between the health system and communities, sharing family planning methods and information that can help women time and space their pregnancies. This information is often a matter of life and death for women and children. The World Health Organization (WHO recommends an interval of 24 months between childbirth and subsequent pregnancy in order to reduce the risk of adverse maternal, perinatal, and infant outcomes.

Los elementos constituyentes de la conceptualización de la calidad de la docencia en enfermería incluyen, entre otros: valores del docente, habilidades de comunicación interpersonal docente-estudiante, características particulares del modelamiento del quehacer enfermero y metodologías de enseñanza en enfermería. Conclusiones. Al obtener la conceptualización de la calidad de la docencia en enfermería desde las percepciones de los propios actores, su utilización en procesos de acreditación y evaluación (y en los cambios consecuentes que se puedan generar a partir de ello) podría ser aceptada de mejor forma por los mismos actores.

Accreditation processes, necessary as they are for the actual stage of education, require a description of quality concept as the basic parameter from which dimension and valuable indicators are to be derived. Considering the polysemy of the concept of quality, it seems risky that desc [...] riptions of such a concept were generated arbitrarily. Responsive to this risk and conceptual deficiency, the purpose of this qualitative study is to collectively generate a quality conceptualization of nursing teaching. Subjects and methods. The emergence of concepts that the study reveals is accomplished by the application of grounded theory method. The reported perceptions were obtained in substantive interviews and focus groups teachers, students and Nursing graduated students, and the recursive analysis of the data. Results. The constitutive elements of Nursing teaching quality conceptualization includes, among others: values of Nursing teachers; abilities of interpersonal communication between teacher and student; particulars characteristics of modelling the Nursing work; and methodologies of teaching in Nursing. Conclusions. As we obtain the quality conceptualization in Nursing teaching from the perspective of the actors involved, its application in accreditation and evaluation processes (and the consequent changes generated from these), could be accepted in a better way by the same actors. And this could reinforced the foundations of the discipline.

Teaching medical students how to break bad news with standardized patients.  

Science.gov (United States)

One of the biggest challenges that a physician will face is conveying difficult news (CDN) to a patient.The ability to provide this information may either strengthen or destroy the patient–physician relationship. Despite the importance of this skill, formal education for medical students has been limited. To improve upon skill building in the medical student experience, fourth year medical students(on their oncology clerkship) spent 3 hours partaking ina CDN session. During this session, each student had a videotaped encounter with a standardized patient, followed by a small group discussion and review of the tape with other students and a clinician. We evaluated the experience with pre- and post-questionnaires assessing overall knowledge,satisfaction, and specific components of the curriculum. The objective of this study was to review our institution’s educational program focused on teaching techniques for CDN. PMID:22314793

Concept-mapping as a teaching method to facilitate critical thinking in nursing education: A review of the literatureeview of the literature  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available

Nursing students are exposed to a vast amount of information and reading material that is very specific, technical, and new to the students. Unless nurse educators provide a learning environment that promotes understanding through interaction, students might only commit unassimilated information to their short-term memory through rote learning, and no meaningful learning will occur. Nursing students must be able to link learned facts, concepts and principles with new knowledge in order to make sound rational decisions in practice (All & Havens 1997:1210, 1213. The aim of this paper is to describe the utilisation of concept-mapping as a teaching method to facilitate critical thinking by students in nursing education. The description of the utilisation of concept-mapping is done from the theoretical framework of concept-mapping and critical thinking to provide the epistemological basis for concept-mapping (Facione 1990:6, 13. Based on the exploration and description of the theoretical frameworks, four steps to facilitate critical thinking were formulated through concept-mapping on the basis of the educational process: the identification, interactive constructing process, formulation and evaluation steps. It is concluded that the utilisation of these steps will assist nurse educators to implement conceptmapping as a teaching method to facilitate critical thinking by student nurses in nursing education. Recommendations are made.

Opsomming
Verpleegkundestudente word blootgestel aan ’n geweldige hoeveelheid inligting en leesmateriaal wat baie spesifiek, tegnies en nuut is vir die studente. Tensy verpleegkundeopvoeders ’n leeromgewing kan voorsien wat deur interaksie die bevordering van begrip bewerkstellig, kan studente inligting deur papegaaiwerk in hul korttermyngeheue stoor, eerder as om dit te assimileer – geen betekenisvolle leer sal dus plaasvind nie. Verpleegkundestudente moet die vermoë hê om die verband tussen aangeleerde feite, konsepte en beginsels en nuwe kennis te lê sodat hulle in die praktyk rasionale besluite kan maak (All & Havens 1997:1210, 1213. Hierdie artikel het ten doel om die aanwending van konsepkartering as 'n onderrigstrategie te beskryf, ten einde die kritiese denke van leerders in die verpleegkunde te fasiliteer. Die beskrywing van die aanwending van konsepkartering word vanuit die teoretiese raamwerke van konsepkartering en kritiese denke gedoen om die epistemologiese grondslag vir konsepkartering te voorsien (Facione 1990:6, 13. Gegrond op die verkenning en beskrywing van die teoretiese raamwerke, word vier fases vir die fasilitering van kritiese denke geformuleer deur middel van konsepkartering. Hierdie verkenning en beskrywing is gebaseer op die onderwysproses: die identifiseringsfase, die interaktiewe konstrueringsproses, die formuleringsfase en evalueringsfase. Die gevolgtrekking word gemaak dat die aanwending van hierdie fases verpleegopvoeders behulpsaam sal wees in die implementering van konsepkartering as 'n onderrigmetode om kritiese denke by leerling verpleërs te fasiliteer in verpleegkunde-onderwys. Aanbevelings word gemaak.

Consideramos como optimización a la selección por parte de los profesores de la mejor variante de su organización, orientada hacia un fin que sugiere, en un tiempo determinado, la mayor efectividad posible para resolver las tareas de la instrucción y la educación. Se hace referencia, partiendo del análisis de la organización del proceso de enseñanza, a los eslabones que deben ser considerados para lograrse optimización. Concluimos que sólo se puede lograr una optimización del proceso de enseñanza sobre la base de la dirección en que se organiza, las regularidades y principios de enseñanza, la utilización de formas y métodos modernos de enseñanza y aprendizaje, así como también del estudio y las particularidades de las condiciones internas y externas de cada grupo de estudiantes. Se analizan en una mayor interacción orgánica, todas las categorías principales de la didáctica, las regularidades, principios, formas, métodos y tipos de enseñanza, potenciando la individualidad creadora en los profesores de enfermería.We made this paper on teaching optimisation considering the importance of the criteria presented to optimise the teaching process in the training of nursing professionals in Cuba. We consider optimisation as the selection made by professors of the best variant of organization, directed to a goal that suggests, in a particular time, the greatest possible effectiveness to resolve the learning and teaching tasks. By analysing the organization of the teaching process, we refer to the characteristics needed to achieve optimal results. We conclude that it is only possible to obtain results in the teaching process on the basis of the direction in which the teaching and learning regularities and principles are organized, as well as on the study and peculiarities of the internal and external conditions of each group of students. All the main categories of didactics, the regularities, principles, ways, methods, and types of teaching are analyzed in a greater organic interaction, potentiating the creative individuality of the nursing professors.

Academic tenure in schools of nursing.  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this research study was to examine factors involved in tenure decisions in schools of nursing. Of 139 deans of nursing surveyed, from schools having both National League for Nursing (NLN) accredited BSN and graduate programs, 135 provided a profile of tenure practices; however, 133 schools were used in the data analysis because two of the programs did not offer tenure. The majority of deans selected academic activities related to teaching performance as more important than research and service activities for tenure decisions. When deans were asked to rank the three broad areas of tenure criteria, 60 deans (55 per cent) ranked teaching as most important, as compared with 49 deans (45 per cent) who ranked research most important. Service was ranked least important by 98 deans (89 per cent). However, deans from the 41 doctoral programs ranked research more important than teaching, but still ranked service the least important. In examining faculty performance of those who were reviewed for tenure in the past 3 years, faculty members who were viewed by deans as providing a high standard of teaching, research, and service were more likely to have been awarded tenure. Quality of teaching, quality of research, and quality of service, in rank order of predictive power, were found to be predictors for attainment of tenure. PMID:2715533

In years sixtieth in U.S.A. the process of nursing was introduced to the contemporary practice of nursing. U.S. was also the first country where the need of teaching the nurses on high standard was noticed and executed. In years 1960-1980 a very intensive development of nursing appeared there, the process of nursing strengthened it's position as a work method based on the theory of human's needs. In Poland idea of process of care developed from over twenty years. Instruction cares is based for scientific bases this of process. Process of nursing as dynamic work method, makes a work of nurse very active and raises the quality of care after a sick person. This process embraces with one's own range also healthy man, potentially threatened with disease, family, group of persons and environment. It is the modern form of nursing in the contrary to nursing understood in traditional way. The main purpose of introduction the process of evidencing to execution of classes like geriatrics and geriatric nursing with students of the third year Faculty of Health Sciences, UMK Collegium Medicum was moulding abilities of conducting the process looking after a sick person by students trough underlining the meaning of scientific bases of nursing.

On the use of a standard spreadsheet to model physical systems in school teaching*  

Science.gov (United States)

In the teaching of physics at upper secondary school level (K10-K12), the students are generally taught to solve problems analytically, i.e. using the dynamics describing a system (typically in the form of differential equations) to compute its evolution in time, e.g. the motion of a body along a straight line or in a plane. This reduces the scope of problems, i.e. the kind of problems that are within students' capabilities. To make the tasks mathematically solvable, one is restricted to very idealized situations; more realistic problems are too difficult (or even impossible) to handle analytically with the mathematical abilities that may be expected from students at this level. For instance, ordinary ballistic trajectories under the action of gravity, when air resistance is included, have been 'out of reach'; in school textbooks such trajectories are generally assumed to take place in a vacuum. Another example is that according to Newton's law of universal gravitation satellites will in general move around a large central body in elliptical orbits, but the students can only deal with the special case where the orbit is circular, thus precluding (for example) a verification and discussion of Kepler's laws. It is shown that standard spreadsheet software offers a tool that can handle many such realistic situations in a uniform way, and display the results both numerically and graphically on a computer screen, quite independently of whether the formal description of the physical system itself is 'mathematically tractable'. The method employed, which is readily accessible to high school students, is to perform a numerical integration of the equations of motion, exploiting the spreadsheet's capability of successive iterations. The software is used to model and study motion of bodies in external force fields; specifically, ballistic trajectories in a homogeneous gravity field with air resistance and satellite motion in a centrally symmetric gravitational field. The article reports briefly on a study of the use of computers in the teaching of physics at K12 level in Norway, as part of an EU research project (for details, see the end of the article). It is demonstrated how the simulation software (the spreadsheet) is implemented in practice, for the systems that have been studied, and various responses of the students and teachers to this new and unfamiliar method for solving problems in physics are discussed. Some perspectives on the future of physics teaching at secondary school level are discussed.

A survey study on use of over the counter (OTC drugs among medical students, nursing and clerical staff of a tertiary care teaching rural hospital  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Aim: The study was conducted to evaluate use of over the counter (OTC drugs among the medical students, nursing and clerical staff of tertiary care teaching rural hospital to determine the awareness and disadvantages on use of OTC. Methods: Responses to a feedback questionnaire covering various aspects on usage of OTC drugs were obtained from 100 medical students, 100 nursing and 100 clerical staff. Results: Among 300 respondents, 84% used OTC, commonly purchased by self. Majority of them started self medication within 2 days of their illness. The frequently reported illness that prompted self-medication included headache, cough and cold, fever, generalised weakness, acidity, dysmenorrhoea, and sleep disturbances. Majority of them obtained OTC by mentioning name of drug (81%, 35% by telling symptom and 15% by showing old prescription. We found that 87% people share OTC among relatives and friends. Conclusions: Usage of OTC was highest amongst medical students and nursing staff. Time consumption for consultation, the consultation fees and frequent visits were the commonly mentioned reasons for self medication. It was analysed that none of the clerical staff were aware of the drug, dose, frequency of administration and adverse reactions. While very little awareness of medication was found even among nursing staff and medical students. Therefore it is suggested that the public has to be educated on the type of illnesses to be self-diagnosed and medicated, dangers of OTC on misuse which would possibly lead to delay in detection of more serious underlying ailment and timely medication.

Awareness about Biomedical Waste Management in Undergraduate Medical and Nursing Students at a Teaching Institute in Vizianagaram, Andhra Pradesh  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: Bio-medical waste collection and proper disposal is a concern for both medical and general community. Medical and Nursing students during and after completing their studies are at potential risk for hazards due to biomedical waste. Thorough knowledge about the subject will decide their practices. Hence the study was limited only to awareness assessment. Objective: To assess awareness in undergraduate medical and nursing students about biomedical waste, its hazards and management. Methods: Data collection was done by a predesigned self administered questionnaire. Results: MBBS students had a fairly better awareness regarding the subject than nursing students. Almost all study participants were aware about colour coding in segregation of biomedical waste. But when asked about which waste is to be put in which bag, correct response was given by almost half amongst them. Conclusions: Practical implications related to the matter should be covered so that hazards of biomedical waste are avoided.

Critical thinking is difficult to teach because it is an abstract conceptual skill and there is no standard model. The authors discuss the development and use of a computer simulation that stimulates critical thinking in nursing students. Computer simulations are an efficient method of teaching students content and critical thinking skills without exhausting severely limited clinical time or placing a patient in jeopardy.

Full Text Available SciELO Spain | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Los problemas derivados de una intervención de artroplastia de cadera afectan a prácticamente todos los patrones funcionales del paciente (Marjory Gordon), de ahí la importancia de que el personal sanitario implicado en el tratamiento y recuperación del paciente desarrolle su trabajo según un PLAN c [...] laramente definido, estándar y evaluable. Éste ha sido el objetivo principal del equipo de trabajo, sistematizar los cuidados para que al paciente no le afecten los problemas derivados de la variabilidad en su atención, recupere su movilidad e independencia lo antes posible y se eviten complicaciones postoperatorias, para lo cual se ha prestado especial atención en la implicación del propio paciente en su recuperación. Administrativamente, con un Plan de Cuidados se mejora el registro de todas las actividades de enfermería y se clarifican las responsabilidades de los miembros del equipo sanitario. En lo que respecta a la atención de enfermería, esta regulación en los cuidados se ha realizado siguiendo la taxonomía NANDA-NOC-NIC, resultando un plan estándar de cuidados basado en los Patrones funcionales de Marjory Gordon, ya que los autores del presente Plan de atención creemos que éste es método muy fiable para realizar la valoración de un paciente, de la cual se derivarían los diagnósticos de enfermería adecuados y la evaluación continua del paciente. Concluimos que la aplicación de este Plan de Cuidados implicaría una mejora en la atención al paciente y en la organización del trabajo en la unidad de hospitalización de cirugía ortopédica y traumatológica. La validez del presente plan sería de tres años.

This has bee [...] n the main objective of the team work, to systematize care for the patient so that it does not affect the problems of variability in their care, recover their mobility and independence as soon as possible and to avoid postoperative complications, for which special attention is paid to involving patients in their own recovery. Administratively, a Care Plan will improve the registration of all nursing activities and clarify the responsibilities of health team members. With regard to nursing care, this care regulation has been made following the NANDA-NOC-NIC taxonomy, resulting in a standard plan of care based on Marjory Gordon's functional patterns, since the authors believe this is a very reliable method for conducting an assessment of the state of the patient, which would derive in the appropriate nursing diagnosis and ongoing evaluation of the patient. We conclude that the application of the Care Plan would mean an improvement in patient care and organization of work in the hospital units of trauma and orthopaedic surgery. The validity of this plan would be three years.

Using an ACTIVE teaching format versus a standard lecture format for increasing resident interaction and knowledge achievement during noon conference: a prospective, controlled study  

Science.gov (United States)

Background The traditional lecture is used by many residency programs to fulfill the mandate for regular didactic sessions, despite limited evidence to demonstrate its effectiveness. Active teaching strategies have shown promise in improving medical knowledge but have been challenging to implement within the constraints of residency training. We developed and evaluated an innovative structured format for interactive teaching within the residency noon conference. Methods We developed an ACTIVE teaching format structured around the following steps: assemble (A) into groups, convey (C) learning objectives, teach (T) background information, inquire (I) through cases and questions, verify (V) understanding, and explain (E) answer choices and educate on the learning points. We conducted a prospective, controlled study of the ACTIVE teaching format versus the standard lecture format, comparing resident satisfaction, immediate knowledge achievement and long-term knowledge retention. We qualitatively assessed participating faculty members’ perspectives on the faculty development efforts and the feasibility of teaching using the ACTIVE format. Results Sixty-nine internal medicine residents participated in the study. Overall, there was an improvement in perceived engagement using the ACTIVE teaching format (4.78 vs. 3.80, P?teaching format (overall absolute score increase of 11%, P?=?0.04) and a trend toward improvement in long-term knowledge retention. Faculty members felt adequately prepared to use the ACTIVE teaching format, and enjoyed teaching with the ACTIVE teaching format more than the standard lecture. Conclusions A structured ACTIVE teaching format improved resident engagement and initial knowledge, and required minimal resources. The ACTIVE teaching format offers an exciting alternative to the standard lecture for resident noon conference and is easy to implement. PMID:24985781

Situational analysis of teaching and learning of medicine and nursing students at Makerere University College of Health Sciences  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Makerere University College of Health Sciences (MakCHS in Uganda is undergoing a major reform to become a more influential force in society. It is important that its medicine and nursing graduates are equipped to best address the priority health needs of the Ugandan population, as outlined in the government’s Health Sector Strategic Plan (HSSP. The assessment identifies critical gaps in the core competencies of the MakCHS medicine and nursing and ways to overcome them in order to achieve HSSP goals. Methods Documents from the Uganda Ministry of Health were reviewed, and medicine and nursing curricula were analyzed. Nineteen key informant interviews (KII and seven focus group discussions (FGD with stakeholders were conducted. The data were manually analyzed for emerging themes and sub-themes. The study team subsequently used the checklists to create matrices summarizing the findings from the KIIs, FGDs, and curricula analysis. Validation of findings was done by triangulating information from the different data collection methods. Results The core competencies that medicine and nursing students are expected to achieve by the end of their education were outlined for both programs. The curricula are in the process of reform towards competency-based education, and on the surface, are well aligned with the strategic needs of the country. But implementation is inadequate, and can be changed: • Learning objectives need to be more applicable to achieving competencies. • Learning experiences need to be more relevant for competencies and setting in which students will work after graduation (i.e. not just clinical care in a tertiary care facility. • Student evaluation needs to be better designed for assessing these competencies. Conclusion MakCHS has made a significant attempt to produce relevant, competent nursing and medicine graduates to meet the community needs. Ways to make them more effective though deliberate efforts to apply a competency-based education are possible.

A multi-method study to determine the effectiveness of, and student attitudes to, online instructional videos for teaching clinical nursing skills.  

Science.gov (United States)

E-learning is regularly promoted in higher education settings as a way of fostering more flexible approaches to learning. It has been argued however that the 'potential benefits of new information and communication technology instruments in education' have not been subjected to critical scrutiny (Debande, O., 2004. ICTs and the development of e-learning in Europe: the role of the public and private sectors. European Journal of Education 39 (2), 191-208, p. 192). This paper outlines a multi-method evaluation of an e-learning innovation designed to teach clinical skills to student nurses. Responding to the challenges of teaching clinical skills to large class sizes, we developed a set of instructional videos for one undergraduate skills-based module, which are now integral to the module and available online to students on a continuous basis. Evaluation suggests that students' performance outcomes are unchanged. The students view the flexible and self-management aspects of this method of learning positively, with some attitudinal differences between male and female, and mature and non-mature students. However, it is best used to complement rather than replace lecturer demonstration, lending support to a 'blended' model (Collis, B., van der Wende, M., 2002. Models of Technology and Change in Higher Education: An International Comparative Survey on The Current and Future Use of ICT in Higher Education, University of Twente, Center for Higher Education Policy Studies, The Netherlands).

Strategies to improve the performance of learners in a nursing college Part I: Issues pertaining to nursing education  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Three focus group interviews were conducted. One group was formed by seven tutors, and the other two groups were formed by fourth-year learners following a fouryear comprehensive diploma course. All participants voluntarily took part in the study. Data was analyzed using the descriptive method of open coding by Tesch (in Creswell, 1994:154-156. Trustworthiness was ensured in accordance with Lincoln and Guba’s (1985:290-326 principles of credibility, conformability, transferability and dependability. The findings were categorized into issues pertaining to nursing education as follows: curriculum overload; lack of theory and practice integration; teaching and assessment methods that do not promote critical thinking; tutors’ lack of skills and experience; inadequate preparation of tutors for lectures; insufficient knowledge of tutors regarding outcomes-based education approach to teaching and learning; inadequate process of remedial teaching; discrepancies between tutors’ marking; lack of clinical role-models and high expectations from the affiliated university as regards standards of nursing education in a nursing college. Strategies to improve the learners’ performance were described. It is recommended that these strategies be incorporated in the staff development programme by the staff development committee of the nursing college under study for implementation. Future research should focus on the effectiveness of the described strategies to improve the learners’ performance. It is also recommended that similar studies be conducted or replicated in other nursing colleges to address the problem of poor performance of learners engaged in a four-year comprehensive diploma course.

Knowledge, attitude and practice for breast cancer risk factors and screening modalities in staff nurses of Ayub teaching hospital Abbottabad  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Background: Breast cancer is the commonest cancer modality in female worldwide. Avoiding the risk factors can reduce its incidence and adhering to screening and early detection can reduce its mortality. A sufficient knowledge regarding the risk factors and screening modalities is therefore essential. We assessed the knowledge level about these parameters in our staff nurses. Methods: A self-administered questionnaire survey was performed. Knowledge regarding the risk factors and screening modalities were categorised into good, fair, poor and very poor categories. Results: Knowledge regarding most of the factors was found to be fair. A few things were termed as good knowledge like role of breast-feeding in protecting against breast cancer. Practice regarding the screening modalities was not satisfactory. Only a few nurses had good knowledge of the risk factors and screening modalities. Practice of the Screening modalities was also poor. Conclusion: There is a need to improve the nursing curriculum, training at the workplace and motivate them for screening practices. They should be encouraged to talk to their patients and their female attendants about prevention and early detection of breast cancer. (author)

Competency of nurse educators in genetics/genomics knowledge  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background: The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice and The Essentials of Genetic and Genomic Nursing: Competencies, Curricula Guidelines, and Outcome Indicators both include competencies expected of nurses working in the 21st century. This research study investigates whether professors currently teaching in baccalaureate programs in the United States possess the knowledge needed to educate nursing students about essential genetics/genomics concepts. Methods: A random sampling of baccalaureate schools of nursing in the United States was performed. Nurse educators teaching in those schools were asked via three email contacts to complete a 15 item multiple choice questionnaire aimed at testing their knowledge of genetics/genomics. Of the 650 potential subjects, 117 baccalaureate educators completed the questionnaires. Descriptive analyses were performed on the data. Results: The percent of the 15 items that each of the 117 subjects correctly answered was calculated: mean – 53.3%, median – 53.3%, standard deviation – 14.4. Only 4 of 15 questions were answered correctly by more than 75% of the total subject pool. Although the sample sizes were small, the t-test result was significant (p = 0.005 between the scores of 26 faculty who responded that they had taken a course in genetics beyond general college biology and the 91 faculty who had not received additional genetics/genomics education. Conclusion: In general, the educators exhibited a paucity of genetic information, much of which is important for nursing care and practice. This study’s findings support the need for nursing faculty to improve their genetics/genomics knowledge base. It was clear from the survey results that taking an additional genetics course beyond biology positively influenced the knowledge of those who responded.

Various factors have certainly contributed to this failure, but the highly centralized curriculum has been one of the many to be blamed for it. The new system of regional autonomy gives ample opportunity to schools/ regions to develop their own curricula. This will lead to the need for the establishm...

An equivalence evaluation of a nurse-moderated group-based internet support program for new mothers versus standard care: a pragmatic preference randomised controlled trial  

Science.gov (United States)

Background All mothers in South Australia are offered a clinic or home-visit by a Child and Family Health community nurse in the initial postnatal weeks. Subsequent support is available on request from staff in community clinics and from a telephone helpline. The aim of the present study is to compare equivalence of a single clinic-based appointment plus a nurse-moderated group-based internet intervention when infants were aged 0–6 months versus a single home-visit together with subsequent standard services (the latter support was available to mothers in both study groups). Methods/Design The evaluation utilised a pragmatic preference randomised trial comparing the equivalence of outcomes for mothers and infants across the two study groups. Eligible mothers were those whose services were provided by nurses working in one of six community clinics in the metropolitan region of Adelaide. Mothers were excluded if they did not have internet access, required an interpreter, or their nurse clinician recommended that they not participate due to issues such as domestic violence or substance abuse. Randomisation was based on the service identification number sequentially assigned to infants when referred to the Child and Family Health Services from birthing units (this was done by administrative staff who had no involvement in recruiting mothers, delivering the intervention, or analyzing results for the study). Consistent with design and power calculations, 819 mothers were recruited to the trial. The primary outcomes for the trial are parents’ sense of competence and self-efficacy measured using standard self-report questionnaires. Secondary outcomes include the quality of mother-infant relationships, maternal social support, role satisfaction and maternal mental health, infant social-emotional and language development, and patterns of service utilisation. Maternal and infant outcomes will be evaluated using age-appropriate questionnaires when infants are aged <2 months (pre-intervention), 9, 15, and 21 months. Discussion We know of no previous study that has evaluated an intervention that combines the capacity of nurse and internet-based services to improve outcomes for mothers and infants. The knowledge gained from this study will inform the design and conduct of community-based postnatal mother and child support programs.

Students’ perception of effective clinical teaching and teacher behaviour  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Learning in the clinical environment is an integral part of nursing education programme. In tertiarybased nursing courses, students spend time learning in the clinical setting as they do in their classroombased studies. The purpose of this study was to explore teaching skills considered by undergraduate student nurses as effective in the clinical setting as well as qualities that make a clinical teacher effective. A descriptive design was employed using questionnaires to collect data. Respondents comprised year four undergraduate student nurses admitted through direct entry (DE and university matriculation examination (UME results. Using validated structured questionnaire, data were collected from 101 students who had completed their six months consolidated clinical experience on their perception of teaching skills and teacher qualities considered effective in the clinical setting. Data were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Specifically, frequencies, percentage and standard deviation were used for descriptive analysis of scores while chi square and Mann-Whitney tests were used to test the mean differences in the teaching skills and to test whether there was a significant difference in their perception of teacher behaviours respectively at 0.05 level of significance. The result showed that having both clinical (professional and teaching knowledge were the most important teaching skills for effective clinical teaching. Five qualities ranked by students as teacher behaviours important for effective teaching include being honest with students, motivation to teach, willingness to listen and using good communication skills, supervising students effectively and being positive role model. These factors could be considered when recruiting future clinical teachers and when planning inservice education programmes for clinical teachers to promote student learning.

Ethics in oncology nursing  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available In the process of cancer treatment and care, the ethical duties of the cancer nurses contribute to preventing ethical dilemmas, resolving ethical problems, and most importantly maintaining an ethical cancer care system. The ethical duties of humanistic caregiving, disclosure, honesty, relief of pain and suffering, fair distribution of resources, provision of adequate palliative care, and assistance to patients and families for imminent death, which are the hallmarks of oncology nursing, are justified by the values, professional standards and the contemporary roles of nursing. Therefore, ethical competency of the oncology nurse is an inevitable requirement.

The impact of a diabetes nurse educator on nurses' knowledge of diabetes and nursing interventions in a home care setting.  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this study was to compare nurses' knowledge of diabetes and nursing interventions in a home health care agency (HHCA) that employed a diabetes nurse educator (DNE) and an agency that did not employ a DNE. Nurse knowledge of diabetes mellitus was measured using the Diabetes: Basic Knowledge Test (DBKT). Nursing care interventions for patients with diabetes were measured using a researcher-developed tool, the Nursing Care Intervention Tool (NCIT). The data analysis showed that the nurses in the agency with the diabetes nurse educator were significantly more knowledgeable about diabetes. The data also showed that the nurses in the HHCA with a diabetes nurse educator provided a significantly higher standard of patient care than the nurses in the agency without a diabetes nurse educator.

The relationship with learning of nurses and nursing students  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Nursing has historically prioritized the use of practical activities as the way to teach and learn. As we try to understand the formation, and its impact in the professional performance, it is important to question what and how we have been teaching. The idea of relationship with knowledge, taken in its broad sense of relationship with learning, presented by Bernard Charlot allows for a different approach to the teaching-learning process and its product. Therefore, this study had as its goal the analysis of the relationship with learning established by students and nurses that attended the same undergraduate course in nursing. The results pointed to a dependence of students in the first semesters with the figure of the professor while the students from the last semesters showed more independence. On the other hand, graduated nurses signaled the practice as a fundamental factor in the learning process.

Strategies to improve the performance of learners in a nursing college. Part I: Issues pertaining to nursing education.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of this contextual, exploratory, descriptive and qualitative study was to describe strategies to improve the performance of learners in a nursing college. The article seeks to deal with factors relating to nursing education that contribute to the poor performance of learners and to outline related strategies to improve the situation. Three focus group interviews were conducted. One group was formed by seven tutors, and the other two groups were formed by fourth-year learners following a four-year comprehensive diploma course. All participants voluntarily took part in the study. Data was analyzed using the descriptive method of open coding by Tesch (in Creswell, 1994:154-156). Trustworthiness was ensured in accordance with Lincoln and Guba's (1985:290-326) principles of credibility, conformability, transferability and dependability. The findings were categorized into issues pertaining to nursing education as follows: curriculum overload; lack of theory and practice integration; teaching and assessment methods that do not promote critical thinking; tutors' lack of skills and experience; inadequate preparation of tutors for lectures; insufficient knowledge of tutors regarding outcomes-based education approach to teaching and learning; inadequate process of remedial teaching; discrepancies between tutors' marking; lack of clinical role-models and high expectations from the affiliated university as regards standards of nursing development programme by the staff development committee of the nursing college under study for implementation. Future research should focus on the effectiveness of the described strategies to improve the learners' performance. It is also recommended that similar studies be conducted or replicated in other nursing colleges to address the problem of poor performance of learners engaged in a four-year comprehensive diploma course.

Teaching communication skills in clinical settings: comparing two applications of a comprehensive program with standardized and real patients  

Science.gov (United States)

Background Communication is important for the quality of clinical practice, and programs have been implemented to improve healthcare providers’ communication skills. However, the consistency of programs teaching communication skills has received little attention, and debate exists about the application of acquired skills to real patients. This study inspects whether (1) results from a communication program are replicated with different samples, and (2) results with standardized patients apply to interviews with real patients. Methods A structured, nine-month communication program was applied in two consecutive years to two different samples of healthcare professionals (25 in the first year, 20 in the second year). Results were assessed at four different points in time, each year, regarding participants’ confidence levels (self-rated), basic communication skills in interviews with standardized patients, and basic communication skills in interviews with real patients. Data were analyzed using GLM Repeated-Measures procedures. Results Improvements were statistically significant in both years in all measures except in simulated patients’ assessment of the 2008 group. Differences between the two samples were non-significant. Differences between interviews with standardized and with real patients were also non-significant. Conclusions The program’s positive outcomes were replicated in different samples, and acquired skills were successfully applied to real-patient interviews. This reinforces this type of program structure as a valuable training tool, with results translating into real situations. It also adds to the reliability of the assessment instruments employed, though these may need adaptation in the case of real patients. PMID:24886341

Using the teach-back and Orem's Self-care Deficit Nursing theory to increase childhood immunization communication among low-income mothers.  

Science.gov (United States)

Guided by Orem's Self-care Deficit Nursing theory, the purpose of the pilot study was to assess the relationship between maternal health literacy and the mother's ability to comprehend and communicate information about childhood immunizations. Communication is the key to positive health results, particularly for patients with low literacy skills, yet few studies have examined patients' ability to converse about health information taught to them by providers. The study was conducted in an urban walk-in immunization clinic. A quantitative-qualitative research design was used. Convenience sampling was applied to obtain 15 mothers with one child (M1) and 15 mothers with more than one child (M>1). The Rapid Estimate of Adult Literacy (REALM) was used to assess literacy level. Vaccine information statements on inactive poliovirus (IPV) and pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) were instructional materials used in the teach- back procedure. Although the results of the study were mixed, patterns and trends were noted. Mothers with higher literacy levels provided more correct responses for the benefits of the polio vaccine than did those mothers with lower literacy levels (F(2,25)=4.70, p= .02). For both IPV and PCV vaccines, more mothers gave correct answers for risks and benefits, but more mothers gave incorrect answers for safety. There also was some relationship between mother's age and correctness of responses regarding risk of pneumonia vaccination (F(2,24)=3.79, p= .04). The inconsistency of the mothers' responses to communicate critical immunization information about vaccines indicates the need to further assess how best to increase parents' vaccine knowledge and communication skills.

[The present situation of occupational health nursing education and how to apply it to the fundamental nursing system].  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of this study was to determine the present situation of occupational health nursing (OHN) education and to discuss future problems facing the fundamental nursing teaching staff. We conducted a questionnaire among fundamental nursing teachers, and our results showed that in occupational health nursing there is a gap between what is being taught at present and what the teaching staff thinks should be taught. In addition, the questionnaire showed that nursing teachers desire to teach such subjects as understanding of clients, health problems, methods of health management, the definition of OHN and concrete care in OHN, from 2 to 10 hours in the community health nursing course of the future. Because we believe that occupational health nurses can acquire a deeper knowledge and practice in continuous training, including postgraduate training, than in a fundamental nursing course, we suggest that there is the problem of how to combine fundamental nursing and continuous education in the future should be carefully studied.

Globalization of Higher Education in Nursing  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The demand for higher education has increased worldwide and the response has been an impressive expansion of educational offerings both within and across countries. The purpose of this manuscript is to emphasize the necessity of common educational standards for nurses in a globalized world. Common standards are crucial in regulated professions, such as nursing, in which lives depend on the possession of specific competencies. This article defines and describes globalization and the internationalization of education, including nursing education, discusses the exporting of nursing education, identifies the challenges and current solutions related to nurse migration, and presents current standards and future trends in harmonizing nursing education internationally.

The pursuit of excellence and innovation in service user involvement in nurse education programmes: report from a travel scholarship.  

Science.gov (United States)

The involvement of service users and carers in nurse education is increasing, with the new standards for pre-registration nurse education in the UK, which require nurse education providers to demonstrate how they are involving users and carers in the planning, delivery, teaching and evaluation of nursing curricula (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2010). A travel scholarship provided the opportunity to explore best practice in this area, focussing on identifying support systems and processes that enable user involvement. The scholarship was undertaken in the UK and Ireland during a 4 week study tour between June and July 2011, during which I visited 15 universities, and met with nurse education staff, users and carers involved in nurse education programmes. Prerequisite processes, the spectrum and variety of involvement activities, quality assurance and evaluation; and sustainability of user involvement in nurse education are reported in this paper. Service users and carers are an under-utilised resource, and as experts by experience have much to offer students and staff by increased involvement in nurse education programmes. The importance of values, enthusiasm and relationships, the cornerstones that strengthen user involvement; often sustain such partnerships. PMID:23041164

A qualitative analysis of exemplary elementary science teachers' use and practice of the National Science Education Teaching Standards  

Science.gov (United States)

The dissertation's purpose was to document and discuss what 10 elementary science teachers, deemed exemplary by administrators, do in the science classroom to reflect the National Science Education Teaching Standards. To make implications for teacher education this report also explored these teachers' science professional development backgrounds. A qualitative triangulated approach of surveys, interviews and observations was used to document actualities, of what theorists have proposed should take place in a standards-based elementary science classroom. Several behavior patterns were identified among these exemplary teachers and their students. These teachers organized for collaborative and individual responsibility; planned according to the needs and interests of their students; encouraged scientific discourse and decision making among their students; facilitated the scientific inquiry process with hands-on, higher-order activities; and used alternative assessment strategies. They were involved in collaboration with peers in planning, training, and decision malting at the school, district, state, and national levels. Exposure to professional development and experience were identified as having the greatest influence on these exemplary teachers. During science lessons taught by these teachers, students were observed in high degrees of cooperation and collaboration with peers while engaging in higher-order discourse and process inquiry, regardless of their academic or social levels. Implications for science teachers' professional development are made, as are suggestions for future research in this area.

Vigilance: The Essence of Nursing  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Nursing, perhaps more than any other health care profession, claims caring as fundamental to its practice. Professional vigilance is the essence of caring in nursing. This article uses historical and theoretical bases to define professional vigilance and discuss its components. Two types of nursing diagnoses, central and surveillance, are proposed. Central diagnoses indicate the need for the nurse to plan and implement interventions for the achievement of outcomes. North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA-approved diagnoses fall in this category. Surveillance diagnoses are those that recognize patient risks that are anticipated by the nurse, who remains ready to act in the event of occurrence. The profession, as a whole, and language developers, in particular, need to expand standardized nursing diagnosis terminology so that the contribution of nurses' vigilance to patient safety may be effectively communicated and documented.

Burn nurse retention. Elements of success.  

Science.gov (United States)

With the national nursing shortage most acute in the critical care area, greater emphasis on effective recruitment and nurse retention is vital. Despite the high-stress environment of a busy burn center, nursing turnover can be reduced to acceptable levels. The greatest "satisfiers" are centered around nursing issues such as schedule flexibility, nurse/patient ratio, and the center's reputation and standards. Salary and the physical plant environment were of little importance in comparison. PMID:2708423

EFFECTIVENESS OF STRUCTURED TEACHING PROGRAMME ON KNOWLEDGE REGARDING SITUATION, BACKGROUND, ASSESSMENT AND RECOMMENDATION (SBAR HAND OVER AMONG STAFF NURSES WORKING IN A SELECTED HOSPITAL, MANGALORE, DAKSHINA KANNADA.  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background of the study:The nursing handover is a communication that occurs between shifts of nurses. The specific purpose is to communicate information about patients under the care of nurses. The handover directly or indirectly improves patient care, increases safety, decreases patient questioning and increases the overall satisfaction of the patient. It attempts to reduce errors and decreases morbidity and mortality, with every staff caring for a patient, beginning from where the last staff left off and being adequately informed to do so. The written guidelines or pre-prepared handover sheets will help the nurses to handover the patient details in a structured and informative way. The structured communication SBAR helps the nurses to give handover in a clear and concise format.

Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus among nurses in a tertiary care hospital in northern Sri Lanka.  

Science.gov (United States)

Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) carriage in the hands among 109 nursing staffs of Teaching Hospital, Jaffna, Sri Lanka was screened. Of those screened, 43 (39.44%) strains of S. aureus were isolated and among that one third were MRSA. Antibiotic resistant pattern of MRSA strains were found to be highly variable. Resistance to ampicillin, cefuroxime, ciprofloxacin, netilmicin and amikacin were found to be 76.9%, 76.9%, 53.8%, 23% and 23% respectively. More than one tenth of the nursing staff were at risk of transmitting the infection and therefore standard infection control precautions should be followed to minimise carriage and transmission.

Oncology nurses' perceptions of nursing roles and professional attributes in palliative care.  

Science.gov (United States)

Managing symptoms, providing information, and supporting families as well as patients are key aspects of palliative care. However, palliative care definitions and perspectives vary widely in clinical practice and often do not align with palliative care organizations' perspectives. Definitional discrepancies may result in delayed referrals and role confusion, which often limit the effectiveness of palliative care programs and contribute to gaps in care and services for patients and their families. The aim of this research study was to explore oncology nurses' perspectives of palliative care through narrative analysis of participants' descriptions of life experiences. Studying nurses' perceptions of their roles in palliative care offers an opportunity to examine and improve clinical practice. Nine focus groups were conducted with 33 oncology nurses in three medical centers in the midwestern region of the United States. Researchers inductively coded research text within each focus group session, sorted across sessions using Atlas.ti 5.2 software, and then applied categorical-content narrative analysis. Findings revealed five primary nursing roles: teaching, caring, coordinating, advocating, and mobilizing. In all five roles, seven professional attributes were described: clinical expertise, honesty, family orientation, perceptive attentiveness, presence, collaboration, and deliberateness. Integrating palliative care standards into role and attribute development and working with palliative care specialty teams are suggested. PMID:19648096

Metacognição e ensino de enfermagem: uma combinação possível? / Metacognition and nursing teaching: a possible combination? / Metacognición y enseñanza de enfermería: ¿una combinación posible?  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Ensinar alunos a aprender a aprender é um desafio para as escolas que pretendem formar indivíduos autônomos e capazes de tomar decisões. Esses são aspectos essenciais para profissionais da área da saúde que se defrontam permanentemente com situações complexas e com uma multiplicidade de problemas a [...] serem resolvidos pela atuação profissional. O desejo de mudanças, explícito no discurso dos educadores, não garante alterações substanciais na forma como o ensino vem sendo desenvolvido. Como promover essas alterações é uma pergunta ainda sem resposta. Os estudos desenvolvidos, nas duas últimas décadas, sobre metacognição parecem apontar uma estratégia possível de ser utilizada para transformar conhecimento em conduta profissional relevante, uma vez que favorece o pensar sobre o processo de pensamento e o desenvolvimento e controle de habilidades mentais capazes de promover maximização no uso das potencialidades individuais necessárias ao enfermeiro para resolver problemas de saúde. Abstract in spanish Enseñar al alumno para que aprenda, es un enorme desafío de las escuelas que intentan formar individuos con autonomía y con capacidad para tomar decisiones. Esta autonomía junto con la capacidad de tomar decisiones, son considerados aspectos primordiales para los profesionales del área de la salud, [...] los cuales constantemente se enfrentan con situaciones complejas y con una diversidad de problemas para solucionarlos a través de su actuación profesional. El hecho de que esta intención esté involucrada en el discurso de los educadores, no garantiza que ocurran alteraciones importantes en la forma como la enseñanza está desarrollándose. ¿Cómo se pueden promover esas alteraciones? Esta es una pregunta aún sin respuesta. Los estudios desarrollados en las dos últimas décadas sobre cognición y metacognición al parecer se orientan hacia una estrategia posible de ser utilizada, para transformar el conocimiento en una conducta profesional relevante, ya que favorece el pensar sobre el proceso del pensamiento y el desarrollo y control de las habilidades mentales capaces de promover al máximo, el uso de las potencialidades individuales necesarias para que el enfermero pueda solucionar problemas de salud. Abstract in english Teaching students to learn how to learn is a challenge for schools that intend to form autonomous people who are capable of taking decisions. These are essential aspects for health professionals who are permanently confronted with complex situations and a multiplicity of problems to be solved by pro [...] fessional actions. The desire for changes, which is explicit in educators' discourse, does not guarantee substantial changes in the form teaching is being developed. The question about how to promote these alterations still remains unanswered. Studies developed in the last two decades about cognition and metacognition seem to indicate a possible strategy to transform knowledge into relevant professional behavior, since it favors thinking about the thinking process as well as the development and control of mental abilities that are capable of maximizing the use of the individual potentialities necessary for a nurse to solve health problems.

Conocimiento y cumplimiento de medidas de bioseguridad en personal de enfermería. Hospital Nacional Almanzor Aguinaga. Chiclayo 2002 / Knowledge and fulfillment of biosecurity standards in nurse personal. Almanzor Aguinaga National Hospital. Chiclayo 2002  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Peru | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Objetivo: Determinar el nivel de conocimientos y cumplimiento de las medidas de bioseguridad del personal profesional y técnico de enfermería que labora en áreas de alto riesgo. Material y Métodos: Estudio transversal, descriptivo, siendo la población el personal profesional y técnico de enfermería [...] que laboraba en Emergencia, Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos (UCI), Unidad de Cuidados Intermedios (UCEMIN), Cirugía General, Centro Quirúrgico, Neonatología y Hemodiálisis del Hospital Nacional Almanzor Aguinaga EsSalud de Chiclayo; se tomó una muestra de 117 trabajadores, evaluándose el nivel de conocimientos mediante cuestionario y el cumplimiento mediante una guía de observación. Resultados: UCI y Centro Quirúrgico tuvieron un nivel de conocimientos alto, tanto en profesionales como técnicos de enfermería. Sobre cumplimiento de normas de bioseguridad, los resultados fueron variados, siendo el mayor en centro quirúrgico y el menor en cirugía y UCEMIN. Existen errores comunes: mal uso de guantes no realizando cambio oportuno, menor frecuencia de lavado de manos, consumo de alimentos en áreas no adecuadas, reencapuchado de las agujas, etc. Conclusiones: Existe un alto grado de conocimiento de las normas de bioseguridad por el personal profesional y técnico de enfermería; sin embargo, el cumplimiento de las normas de bioseguridad es en promedio de nivel 2 (30 a 60%). Abstract in english Objectives: To determine knowledge and fulfilment of biosecurity standards in nurses and nurse technicians who work in high risk areas. Material and Methods: Transversal, prospective and descriptive study. Population included nurses and nurse technicians who work at Emergency, Intensive Care Unit (I [...] CU), Intermediate Care Unit (UCEMIN), General Surgery, Surgical Center, Neonatology and Hemodialysis services at Chiclayo Almanzor Aguinaga National Hospital, EsSalud. The sample included 117 workers, sample obtained by systematic and probabilistic selection. Knowledge level was determined by questionnaire and fulfilment by observation guide levels. Results: ICU and Surgical Center’s nurses and nurse technicians had a high level of knowledge in biosecurity standards; fulfilment varied from high fulfilment at the Surgical Center and least at General Surgery and UCEMIN; there were several common mistakes, such as, bad use of gloves, low frequency of hand washing, eating foods in not allowed places and needle hooding. Conclusions: There is a high level of knowledge on biosecurity standards in nurses and nurse technicians but fulfilment of the standards was level 2 (30 to 60%) only.
