The challenge to educate increasing numbers of nursing students at all levels in both online and in-class environments calls for innovative instructional strategies that may include technology-based assignments. These authors describe a case study assignment developed for a graduate-level pathophysiology course that required students to create digitally enhanced patient stories. Nursing students enrolled in the online and in-class sections of the course worked together using commonly available learning technology tools to create content that bridged pathophysiology concepts and clinical practice.

In this video the authors describe an innovative service-learning project done virtually. The school of nursing has a practice partnership with the Nurse Family Partnership to provide their clients with presentations on health promotion. Historically students presented to a live audience. However, virtual sessions offer more flexibility. The virtual health promotion sessions were presented in real time using Facebook Live. A platform called StreamYard was also used. This combination allowed the presentations to include show slides, pictures, diagrams, and videos. Learn more from their article.

Nurses are concerned for their safety and conflicted about their career, because their duty to care for patients during the pandemic involved competing ethical obligations, including their own personal safety. This study explored the impact of COVID-19 on new nurses and nursing students (N = 472) in terms of safety and interest in nursing specifically related to self-efficacy, geographic region case density, and frontline experience in health care. Concerns about personal safety and the safety of others were apparent. Over time, this may lead to a decrease in willingness to enter or remain in the nursing profession.

In many clinical settings, there is limited space for postconferences. In this video and article, Dr. Rosales presents an innovative online postconference for prelicensure students. After clinical practice, students create a 5- to 7-minute video giving an SBAR report on 1 of their patients. Students post their video in the learning management system, made just for their clinical team. After posting their video, students and their clinical instructors watch the videos while creating a handwritten report using an SBAR template as if they were the incoming nurse.

A final culminating project that is derived from a practice immersion experience is a critical part of a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) program. Many schools use well-designed quality improvement (QI) projects to meet this requirement, but there is no consensus on which QI methods and tools are the most effective for DNP students to demonstrate before graduation. In this video, the authors describe how they implemented the logic model to guide DNP projects. This led to subsequent changes in the curriculum, faculty preparation, and practice partner responsibilities.

This national study examined nursing faculty and administrators' perceptions of civility and incivility in nursing education, ways to address the problem, and psychometric properties of the Workplace Incivility/Civility Survey (WICS). Respondents included 1074 faculty and administrators who identified types and frequency of incivility, severity and contributors to the problem, reasons for avoiding incivility, and strategies to improve civility. Eight themes of uncivil behaviors were garnered. The WICS was shown to be a psychometrically sound instrument to measure civility and incivility.

Despite the Joining Forces initiative and recently published veteran care competencies, nursing students and graduates are often unprepared to care for veterans who have unique service-connected illnesses and injuries. The authors evaluated content gaps in prelicensure nursing textbooks with the veteran care competencies knowledge, skills, and attitude (KSA) domains. The skills and attitude domains of veteran care competencies were poorly addressed in nursing textbooks. Overall, the knowledge domain was adequately covered, however, most with limited connection to veterans and veteran care. Competency focused recommendations for expanding and enhancing veteran content, KSAs, and teaching strategies are offered. You will learn a lot from this video and be sure to read about the full study in the article.

Students who value peer feedback processes are more likely to provide supportive feedback to peers. The authors conducted a secondary analysis of qualitative data collected from 148 graduate nursing students in 7 master's-level courses. Common themes included the potential for supportive peer feedback to improve self, peer, and team performance, and quality of patient care. Faculty should emphasize to students the positive impact of supportive peer feedback on nursing care. Assignments can be structured to promote a fair exchange of supportive feedback between peers. Learn about this study and strategies you can use in your courses. After watching the video be sure to read the article.
