Schools of nursing and health care systems frequently have policies prohibiting the visibility of body art (tattoos and piercings). An integrative review revealed 3 themes related to body art in nursing practice. The authors provide policy implications for nursing programs. The benefits of reporting near-miss incidents by nursing students are unknown. Faculty analyzed 3 years of near-miss incidents (N=236) submitted through the school's incident reporting system and identified the main types of incidents. These near-miss reports offer lessons to prevent future errors. Rapidly changing care models demand nurses who can deliver population health, primary care, and care coordination. A faculty team built an innovative concept and competency-based accelerated BSN primary care–focused curriculum integrating behavioral health, aesthetic knowing, and technology. Another article describes curriculum and clinical innovations to prepare prelicensure students for primary care.
