In this video and article, Dr. Jones describes how the school of nursing prepared faculty to write high quality test items and to analyze test results. As part of their faculty development program, they established an Item Review Committee, consisting of faculty responsible for writing examination questions. Their process of item review led to a significant improvement in the quality of their examination items and testing process.

To stay current with changes in health care and nursing practice, nursing faculty must have competencies in curriculum revisions. Despite these necessary competencies, curriculum redesign is not an easy task. Although there are a plethora of tools, techniques, and processes for embarking on a curriculum revision, few curriculum revisions are situated in quality improvement (QI) methods. This article provides an exemplar of how faculty in 1 prelicensure nursing program used the Collaborative Improvement Model (CIM), a model created using QI methods, to revise their curriculum. Learn how to use the CIM in this video and article.

Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is based on the human-animal bond theory, which emphasizes the mutually beneficial bond that exists between humans and animals. The increased implementation of AAT in health care settings and the growing understanding of the positive impact of AAT emphasize the need for nurse educators to provide opportunities for students to learn more about AAT. The authors develop an AAT elective nursing course, which includes simulations as feasible means for students to explore applications of AAT in hospital and home settings.

Student resiliency, success, and retention are top priorities for nursing programs. A cross-sectional descriptive study of 199 nursing students from organizations that comprise the Community Patient Safety Coalition Nursing Research Consortium revealed that students had low resiliency (P < .0001) and low physical and mental health (P < .0001) compared with the general population. Student resilience was positively correlated to self-perception of physical and mental health. Learn more about this interesting study in the video and article.

For practice readiness, graduates need minimal competence in many areas. A systematic literature review was done to determine whether there is evidence of the objective assessment of learning in the senior year that aligns with the new AACN domains. Database searches in Scopus, CINAHL, Ovid MEDLINE, ERIC, and Web of Science resulted in 40 peer-reviewed articles. MERSQI scoring was applied. Six of the 10 AACN domains were addressed in the literature. Many studies used investigator-developed tools with no validity or reliability.

Many nurses do not have empathic communication skills. This study compared the efficacy of 2 interventions to increase nursing students' use of empathic communication. The study was a randomized controlled trial comparing weekly empathic communication email reminders, an empathic communication quick reference guide, both, or neither. The group that received emails only showed a significant increase above the control group. Weekly empathic communication email reminders can increase nursing students' use of empathic communication above and beyond traditional lectures and class activities.

Global partnerships amplify nursing leadership capacity in low-resource countries. The authors examined a nursing faculty partnership between US and Haitian universities, where Haitian faculty completed graduate-level degrees highlighting leadership and education. This marked the first time a Haitian university awarded a master of nursing degree. Longitudinal qualitative data collection included interviews and observations among 28 participants. Advanced professional stature, leadership as a nurse educator and in the clinical setting, transformational leadership, and challenges to leadership practice were key themes.

Participants (243 students with 179 non-DEU and 64 DEU students) completed the Nursing Executive Center's Critical Thinking Diagnostic Assessment tool before and after their clinical experience. There were significant increases in total pretest and posttest score means (p < .05) for the DEU (intervention) group. Results support the efficacy of the DEU model in developing critical thinking.

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 preceptorships, experienced staff nurses (preceptors) help students learn in clinical settings. This educational approach promotes one-to-one instruction with staff experts. Current evidence about preceptorships focuses primarily on preceptor roles, preparations, perceptions, and/or challenges when working with nursing students. There is a lack of clarity about specific ways to fulfill educator roles during preceptored experiences.

In a medical-surgical course, we created a scenario-recorded activity to provide an innovative way for students to develop their cultural competence. The assignment objectives are aligned with the student learning outcomes and QSEN competencies. The student is given a specific cultural scenario upon arriving to the simulation lab; the student then acts out how to handle the situation as a culturally competent nurse while being videotaped. Video debriefing occurs with the student and nurse educator, which allows reflection on the performance. After the debriefing, the student completes a reflective activity. This activity provides a safe environment for students to practice and expand their cultural communication skills.
