What Effect Does Simulation Lab have on the Confidence and Critical Thinking of Nursing Students as Licensed Practical Nurses?

Nursing graduates must have self-confidence and critical thinking capabilities in order to resolve multifaceted patient care issues. The use of human patient simulators to supplement teaching in schools of nursing is rising; however, further research is needed in order to validate the declaration that learning by way of simulation enhances critical thinking and self-confidence (Soucy, 2011). Nursing educators are increasingly utilizing technology to provide realistic educational experiences to prepare students to enter the workforce. Human patient simulation (HPS) is one type of technology that nursing educators are using with the belief that when students encounter a real-life experience after simulation, they will perform in a….

Self-Confidence in Licensed Practice Nursing Students Introduction

… ¶ … self-confidence in licensed practice nursing students. Nurses are important personnel in the hospital or any medical setting. Despite the training and teaching strategies used in their curriculum, many nurses complain of lack of confidence when it comes to applying their practical knowledge. This research will look into experience of licensed nursing students in order to find a positive correlation between simulation and development of critical thinking and confidence skills. The approach that we are using is the addition of simulated studies and simulated scenarios in some students. A sample of 75 licensed practice nursing students in their third year would be chosen. One group will be provided simulation studies whereas the other will not receive simulation. Analysis will be made through interviews and…. [read more]

Saudi Nursing Interns' Perceptions of Clinical Competence Upon Completion of Preceptorship Experience

The purpose of this quantitative cross-sectional descriptive/correlational design research study is to test Benner's (1982) theory "From Novice to Expert" in relation to the impact of preceptorship on the competency of undergraduate nursing interns at King Fahad Medical City (KFMC). This study seeks to determine if preceptors provide the support recommended by Benner (1982) to the undergraduate nurse during their preceptorship program and if these have an impact on undergraduate competency levels. The study will use two reliable validated clinical competence questionnaires based on Benner's (1982) competencies (Shwu & Ching, 2014) and Knowles Adult Learning theory and nursing…. [read more]

Curriculum for Patient-Care Competency in Chemotherapy-Based Treatment

Though the vast majority of cancer cases submitted to the American healthcare system are treated in cancer centers and other facilities specializing in cancer therapies, the permeation and diversity of the condition dictates that many supplementary, cooperative, peripheral and long-term treatment needs must be met in general treatment facilities such as hospitals. This forms the rationale for the curriculum to be presented hereafter, which proceeds from the view that nursing skill sets in inpatient settings should include basic competencies related to chemotherapy. Because chemotherapy is an area of cancer treatment that itself produces an array of health needs, side effects and medical realities, the research here is underscored by the view that nursing professionals in most….

Labor and Delivery Nurse Education Course / Scottsdale Hospitals

Focus and Course Content

Four in every ten expectant mothers will have a cesarean section for their first delivery. More and more studies are linking this increase in surgical births to the amount of medical intervention utilized at hospitals. While many interventions and hospital policies are in place for the safety of the patient and mother, not every mother entering the labor and delivery unit requires full intervention. This course is designed to educate nurses within the labor and delivery unit on natural birth techniques commonly used by midwives as a means of offering our patient consumers a means of ensuring a smooth birth process.

… Gaming as an Instructional Strategy to Enhance Baccalaureate Nursing Students' Learning

Nurse educators play a key role in preparing a future workforce of nurses to provide quality care that meets the health care needs of the population (the National League of Nursing [NLN], 2002). Nurse educators are responsible for facilitating student learning and evaluating outcomes. In 2003, the NLN stated that nursing curricula needed to be evidence-based, receptive to the needs of students, flexible, and incorporate current technology. To better meet the needs of today's students, an educator must become familiar with the characteristics and ways of preferred learning of today's learner. Recently, the NLN (2006) identified 72.1% of baccalaureate nursing students being comprised of the millennial or net generation. The millennial student was born…. [read more]

Rationale, Issues, and Hypothesis

Rationale for Topic Selection

With the publication of the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) 2000 landmark report, to Err is Human, the public, their representatives, and the medical profession woke up to the fact that seeking medical care increases the risk of injury and death. At the time, best estimates suggested that between 44,000 and 98,000 Americans died each year from medical errors. These care-related mistakes are believed to cost the U.S. healthcare system about $2 billion each year. The prevalence of medication errors can vary greatly depending on the setting. For example, the medication error rate for hospitals was found to vary from about 0.3% overall to over 10% in a pediatric ICU…. [read more]

Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)

One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]

Change Management After Recession Essay

… However, the process steps were truly inefficient. Unlike common ED processes where services come to the patient bedside, we were instead directed to more than four locations before my friend finally settled in the pre-operation bay. The ff kept hopping from registration to the lab, to pre-assessment area for vitals and then a second round of medical history questions. It was apparent that the staffs were suffering in their work processes with inefficient care delivery (Kotter, 1996). They never seemed to realize that the multiple trips we made from one place to another with my sick friend was quite an issue to us. In fact, we were left wondering why pre-op services were not organized at the bed side as would have been the case…. [read more]
