About this Issue: January/February 2021
We are beginning to document through research the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on nursing faculty, students, and schools of nursing. Authors report on their study of the quality of life (QoL) of nursing faculty during the pandemic. Resilience was the strongest predictor of QoL. Another article describes how a school of nursing responded to the pandemic. Systems thinking is key to improving health care systems and decreasing errors. In a multisite study, both graduate and prelicensure students enrolled in nursing, medicine, and other fields improved their systems thinking following a table-top simulation. Other articles describe using simulation evaluation for a program review, an escape room pedagogy, flipping to motivate, and more.
