Understanding different cultures is important in educating nursing students who will become the health care workforce of our future interdependent and globalized societies. International practicum courses help students and nurses understand different cultures. This video and article describe an innovative approach to nursing education and understanding diverse cultures. The team of faculty developed a hybrid course (online course coupled with face-to-face practicum experiences), which enrolled nursing students from opposite hemispheres.

In the authors’ prelicensure nursing program, junior students enrolled in the first adult health course were recruited to be standardized patients (SPs) and peer teachers for the first-semester junior students in health assessment. The students who were SPs were able to count the experience as clinical practice hours. The simulated experiences were implemented in examination rooms that resembled a realistic clinical environment. Students obtained a history and performed a focused physical assessment on the SP, who assessed their clinical competence. Learn more about this innovative teaching strategy in this video and the article.

Clinicians need to be prepared to teach nursing students. The author describes her study to determine whether an online program, the Clinical Instructor Program (CIP), improved self efficacy for clinicians in the role of clinical instructor. In addition, understanding of the clinical instructor role, knowledge of instructional content, and understanding of instructional strategies were evaluated before and after CIP participation. A primary finding of the study was that overall self-efficacy significantly improved. Watch the video and also read the article: in the article the author describes the program she developed to prepare clinicians for clinical teaching.

Inability to communicate with a nonhearing patient can affect the patient’s quality of care and be frustrating to the patient and nurse. Faculty developed a simulation for nursing students to learn to communicate with the Deaf. Nursing students interacted directly with Deaf participants and learned techniques of communicating with them. The video demonstrates these techniques: every nursing student should watch this video.

Nurses and other health care professionals need to understand methods for analyzing medical errors to prevent them from recurring in the future. One widely used process to examine errors is root cause analysis (RCA). The authors describe their approach to engage nursing students in RCA using problem-based learning. Students conduct a mock RCA based on an actual medical error reported either in the media or literature. The cases used for the RCA are selected by the students based on their particular area of interest. Watch this video and make sure you read the article.

Learn more about how faculty used the Hearing Voices That Are Distressing curriculum with prelicensure students. They also studied the outcomes of the simulation on student attitudes toward and self-efficacy related to caring for patients with auditory hallucinations. In their study, 87 students were instructed to complete 3 tasks while wearing headphones delivering distressing voices. Comparing presimulation and postsimulation results, this study suggests that the simulation significantly improved attitudes toward patients with auditory hallucinations; however, self-efficacy related to caring for these patients remained largely unchanged.

Simulations give students an opportunity to be part of an unknown experience, similar to a movie goer’s first exposure to a popular movie. While students are encouraged to withhold their experience from other students so that all can benefit from the impact of new learning opportunities, reality tells us that students typically share simulation “spoilers.” In an attempt to give a fresh opportunity for students to “watch the movie without reading the book or synopsis,” the author directed the standardized patient in the simulation to go in a new direction.
