Lateral violence among nurses is a continuing problem in health care, contributing to detrimental individual and organizational consequences. Nurse educators can prepare students to respond effectively to lateral violence before they graduate and enter the workplace, where it is likely to be encountered. Simulation provides an effective platform for delivering this type of student-centered education. The author presents guidelines for educators to integrate lateral violence response training into simulations in prelicensure nursing education. Watch the video and read the article to get details about how to develop a simulation for this purpose.

Regionalization in pediatric acute care hospitals have limited clinical opportunities for prelicensure nursing students. The use of schools as primary learning sites offers an opportunity for a combined pediatric and public health clinical experience for nursing students. The purpose of the study was to compare pediatric knowledge and clinical simulation performance between students who had hospital- and community-based pediatric clinical experiences. There were no difference between the groups. The faculty developed an innovative clinical experience and studied its effectiveness. Watch the video and be sure to read the article.

The challenge to educate increasing numbers of nursing students at all levels in both online and in-class environments calls for innovative instructional strategies that may include technology-based assignments. These authors describe a case study assignment developed for a graduate-level pathophysiology course that required students to create digitally enhanced patient stories. Nursing students enrolled in the online and in-class sections of the course worked together using commonly available learning technology tools to create content that bridged pathophysiology concepts and clinical practice.

The simulation scenarios were role played by the students, which enabled them to verbalize therapeutic communication skills, practice technical skills, and use their knowledge of physical and mental health symptoms to portray a patient with these comorbidities. The student-led simulation scenarios were evaluated to determine if the participants perceived them to be an effective and important simulation learning experience.

Safety education in nursing has traditionally focused at the level of individual nurse-patient interactions. Students and novice clinicians lack clinical experience to create context and understand the complexity of the health care system and safety science. Using the QSEN quality and safety competency as a framework, the objective of this education project was to design comprehensive, engaging, learner-centered, online modules that increase knowledge, skills and attitudes about medication safety.

Stress, in the form of test anxiety, inhibits exam performance. Salivary cortisol, a biomarker of stress, was obtained before 3 exams and 1 nursing didactic class from a sample of baccalaureate nursing students in a midwestern US university. Significant differences were found between cortisol sampling events and by junior or senior status. These findings suggest that diverse examinations and program level yield differences in stress for students.
