Clinical faculty (n=193) in prelicensure programs from 25 states reported that students are often restricted in retrieving patient health information, documenting assessment data and care, and using medication administration systems. Students alternatively use faculty or staff nurses’ system security access. This is a must-read article. What physical assessment skills should we teach in prelicensure nursing programs? Faculty (n = 402) from across the US ranked skills associated with the integumentary, central nervous, and cardiovascular systems as the most critical skills to teach. In this issue you also will learn about nursing students’ mindsets, the impact of the length of students’ clinical shift on learning outcomes and care quality, and more!
