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.

Assessing clinical judgment for safe nursing practice is a challenge. The author used the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric (LCJR) to evaluate clinical judgment of junior and senior nursing students in the clinical setting. Juniors demonstrated an accomplished level on the total scale and all 4 subscales, whereas seniors had exemplary clinical judgment on the total scale and 3 of 4 subscales.

Expensive high-fidelity simulators sit unused in nursing programs worldwide. One cause of this is failure to ensure organizational readiness to integrate simulation into the curriculum. The Simulation Culture Organizational Readiness Survey (SCORS) was developed to assist administrators in evaluating institutional and program readiness for simulation integration. Psychometric analysis finds the SCORS to be a valid, reliable tool to determine organizational readiness for simulation integration. Watch the video and then read this article.

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 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.

Limited opportunities exist for prelicensure nursing students to observe the interprofessional process required to resolve complex ethical cases in practice. The authors assembled a mock hospital ethics committee (MHEC) to teach the application of ethics in practice through simulation. The MHEC meeting is an example of how nursing education and practice can partner to create meaningful learning experiences. Watch this video and read the article to learn how you can teach ethics with this strategy.

In this video the authors discuss how they used integrative learning strategies and complexity theory in designing complex simulations for students. The simulation scenarios were role played by the students, which enabled them to verbalize therapeutic communication skills, practice technical skills, and use their knowledge of physical and mental health symptoms to portray a patient with these comorbidities. The student-led simulation scenarios were evaluated to determine if the participants perceived them to be an effective and important simulation learning experience.

Stress, in the form of test anxiety, inhibits exam performance. Salivary cortisol, a biomarker of stress, was obtained before 3 exams and 1 nursing didactic class from a sample of baccalaureate nursing students in a midwestern US university. Significant differences were found between cortisol sampling events and by junior or senior status. These findings suggest that diverse examinations and program level yield differences in stress for students.
