Nursing students’ exposure to stress negatively affects both academic and clinical performance. The authors describe their study of the effects of a 10-week cognitive behavioral therapy–based stress management program. There were positive effects of the training program compared with a control group. Students’ perceived stress management competency, self-efficacy, and self-esteem were higher 1 year after the intervention. Don’t miss seeing this video and reading the article.

Pharmacology is often a challenging course for nursing students. Nurse educators may find study guide posters as a valuable activity to help students learn about medications and as a teaching method that is easy to implement. Students develop posters to display sample medication names, indications for use, mechanism of action, side effects, and patient teaching points/nursing considerations. They include at least 1 poem, 1 acronym, and 1 drawing to convey the drug information. Learn more about this teaching strategy by watching the video and reading the teaching tip.

To prepare students for a discussion of cardiac conditions, the instructor reviews content through the Headbands Game. Students are divided into teams of 4 prior to the class. PowerPoint slides were created with a variety of cardiac medication classifications, heart valves, heart chambers, and cardiac electrical pathways. One word pertaining to the cardiac content is placed on each slide, automatically timed to advance after 15 seconds. One student from each team sits in front of the screen facing their teammates. Teammates describe the word using clues. Interested in learning more about the Headbands Game and seeing students play it? Watch this video now.

Many programs have implemented end-of-program predictive testing to identify students at risk of NCLEX-RN failure. Unfortunately, for many students, end-of-program testing comes too late. The authors studied the relationships between 9 content area assessments and an end-of-program assessment shown to be predictive of NCLEX-RN success. Results indicate that scores on assessments for content areas such as medical surgical nursing and care of children are predictive of end-of-program test scores, suggesting that instructors should provide remediation at the first sign of lagging performance.

In this video and article, Dr. Altmiller describes the process of developing a QSEN-based clinical evaluation instrument for a prelicensure nursing program and establishing content validation for its items.

Clinical site visits are important for evaluating graduate nursing students' clinical performance. This study examined the perceptions of preceptors of FNP students about site visits. Preceptors believe faculty should make at least 1 face-to-face site visit to observe a student during the semester. No preference for telephone or mobile technology for conducting site visits was identified. The study provides important considerations when designing guidelines for faculty site visits.

If you are teaching online, make sure you watch this video and read the full article. This study aimed to determine the level of engagement of registered nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) nursing students enrolled in online nursing degree programs and to understand whether there are generational differences in level of student engagement. Significant differences were noted for engagement level between generations of students, but no significant difference was noted in the engagement level of students from RN to BSN, MSN, or DNP programs.

The author describes a community partnership that includes a writing-for-publication health promotion activity for RN-BS students enrolled in a population health nursing course. The faculty member for the course contacted the Youth Health Connection (YHC) program coordinator to inquire about the possibility for student-authored article submissions in the YHC e-newsletter. This outreach began a unique educational partnership that affords RN-BS nursing students the opportunity to author health promotion articles and has led to other initiatives between the health system and nursing department.

This study compared the drinking patterns of 123 female nursing students with those of 185 female students of other majors enrolled beyond the freshman year at a large public university. High-risk drinking patterns did not vary significantly between the 2 groups, suggesting that students' drinking patterns reflected the norms of their institution. Prevention strategies geared at campus culture and that target students still enrolled in prerequisites may be needed to reduce alcohol abuse in nursing students.

Simulation design should be theory based and its effect on outcomes evaluated. This study applied a model of experiential learning to design a simulation experience, examined how this design affected clinical nursing judgment development, and described the relationship between clinical nursing judgment development and student performance when using the experiential learning design. Findings suggest that using an experiential learning simulation design results in more highly developed nursing judgment and competency in simulation performance.

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.

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.
