Personal self-care should be an expectation of the professional nursing role. Dr. Ashcraft and faculty integrated curricular interventions to promote students’ self-care behaviors. She discusses her study in this video. Although few statistically significant changes were found, findings indicate that changes were beginning to occur and self-care behaviors were not declining: the curricular interventions are having a positive impact on self-care behaviors in nursing students. Read the full article too to learn more about the curriculum strategies used in this nursing program to promote students’ self care.

During a worldwide pandemic, faculty needed to pivot quickly to teaching in a remote environment using the internet, learning management systems, and other online technology. Without an understanding for teaching in this environment, the resulting educational experience can become unengaging and tedious for both learners and faculty. The use of Zoom is explored along with other options for supporting interactions within a virtual class. Many tips are provided for teaching with Zoom in both the article and video.

Teaching self-efficacy is an indicator of the belief that one can make a difference in student learning outcomes. The aim of this study was to examine the level of teaching self-efficacy and satisfaction of online nursing faculty. The sample included 100 faculty in multiple schools of nursing who taught at least 1 online course in RN to BSN or graduate nursing programs. Overall, participants had relatively high levels of online teaching self-efficacy and satisfaction.

Traditional mentoring programs typically pair new with experienced faculty members who are expected to provide guidance and advice. In our new approach, 3 generations of faculty formed a team composed of a tenured, a midcareer, and a new faculty member. The midcareer educator was better suited to help the novice prepare to teach, as they had recently been through the process, whereas the tenured faculty member was able to provide scholarship support to both. After watching the video, learn about details of this approach in the article.

Many schools still struggle to effectively prepare nursing students with competencies in informatics and health care technology. Dr. Bove discusses her study, which provides an update of the 2013 status report on the integration of informatics in nursing education. While there was some improvement in the number of informatics courses in the programs reviewed, faculty need support to overcome barriers to teaching informatics.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, nurse educators found themselves having to move their courses online quickly. One online activity that can be used is student-developed and -created medication commercials. This activity allows students to be creative and interactive through creating medication commercials. Students can record themselves through various media, including TikTok, Snapchat, or other video recording software. Learn about this creative activity in the video and the authors’ teaching tip.

In preceptorships, experienced staff nurses (preceptors) help students learn in clinical settings. This educational approach promotes one-to-one instruction with staff experts. Current evidence about preceptorships focuses primarily on preceptor roles, preparations, perceptions, and/or challenges when working with nursing students. There is a lack of clarity about specific ways to fulfill educator roles during preceptored experiences. This video and article provide tips for preparing and maintaining clinical nursing preceptorship experiences that help ensure successful student learning.

While just culture is embraced in the clinical setting, just culture has not been systematically incorporated into nursing education. Dr. Walker describes their study of prelicensure nursing student perceptions of just culture in academia. The Just Culture Assessment Tool for Nursing Education (JCAT-NE) was used to measure just culture across multiple (N = 15) nursing programs. The majority of JCAT-NE respondents (78%) reported their program has a safety reporting system, 15.4% had involvement in a safety-related event, and 12% submitted an error report. There was a significant total score decline as students progressed from the beginning to the middle and end of the program. The results are a call to action for nursing education to emphasize the tenets of just culture, error reporting, and quality improvement.

The authors developed a no-cost telehealth simulation and examined its impact on students in their first nurse practitioner (NP) clinical course. Twenty-eight NP students participated in the telehealth objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). The students' general understanding of telehealth was significantly greater after the OSCE experience. Directed content analysis revealed 3 themes: usefulness of telehealth, benefit in role preparation, and technology. Telehealth simulation can be an effective strategy to assess clinical competency, provide individualized feedback, and ensure students are using evidence-based practice.

Minimal information exists about the educational environment best suited for Generation Z students. In this study, lecture with audience response clickers was the most preferred/most engaging method for helping Generation Z nursing students learn, whereas assigned reading was the least preferred method. Students preferred a traditional classroom model instead of a flipped classroom. Acquiring skills was the dimension of engagement rated the highest by this group of students.

For precepted clinical immersion experiences, students are often assigned a hospital unit that does not allow them to work with their preferred patient population or learn about the care continuum. Five clinical immersion experiences were developed using an innovative model focused on specific patient populations across the care continuum. More than 50 students transitioned through varied areas across the care continuum, based on their chosen focus. Learn more about this innovation in the video and article.

To address the need for RNs to assume a role in chronic care management, a School of Nursing and Health Professions piloted a clinical option in which second-degree master of science in nursing students are prepared to function as health coaches on primary care teams at a local community health center. Reshifting the focus of nursing education to integrate primary care nursing, it is important to embed nursing students into primary care practices where they can learn about the longitudinal care of patients with chronic conditions.

Many of our military transitioning to civilian life are expertly trained medics, corpsmen, and health care specialists. An innovative model was developed for waiving the requirements for specific nursing courses for veteran-students. Using a skills self-assessment tool and a validation process, veteran-students are able to demonstrate their knowledge, training, and experience. As part of the program, 32 veteran-students have validated out of 65 courses for 115 credit hours. All students have successfully progressed through the BSN program.
