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. Read the article to learn more about this simulation and details for running it in your school of nursing.

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.

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.

An important outcome of nursing education is the acquisition of an identity consistent with the profession’s core knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes. Hensel and Laux conducted a longitudinal study to describe factors associated with the acquisition of a professional identity over the course of prelicensure education.
