Integration of Quality Matters™ a Graduate Course Assignment

Video Author: Lancaster, Rachelle J. PhD, RN; Mott, Jason PhD, RN; Hendryx, Jennifer MS
Published on: 11.04.2019

The Quality Matters™ (QM) rubric is useful when assessing online courses for quality and structure. The authors integrated a QM assignment for nurse educator graduate students in their assessment course. In this unique learning experience, students enter an active online course offered in the school of nursing and provide the instructors with a real-time assessment of course methods, demonstration of learning outcomes, and written feedback for course improvement. This activity benefits the graduate students evaluating courses as well faculty whose course is being assessed. Read the article and watch the video to learn about this teaching strategy and how you can use it in your own school.

Documentation in health care serves to provide an accurate record of the patient’s status and needs at a point in time. We examined if using an educational EMR (EEMR) impacted the quantity of student documentation. One group of students learned with the EEMR and another group with a paper chart. Use of the EEMR improved students’ nursing notes, VS, I & O, and MAR documentation, but the quantity of documentation by students in both cohorts was low. If you are thinking about an EEMR, or using one, be sure to watch the video and read the article.

In this video the authors summarize their study on the meaning of grades to nursing students at all educational levels. Nursing students (n=46) from 14 schools described a time that stood out to them when they were graded, reflected on their story, and discussed what this experience meant to them. The main theme was “needing an A.” This was discussed by students at every level of nursing education. Students not only needed to get an A, but also needed to get an A in every course they took, causing stress and disappointment when they were unable to achieve these grades. This is an important article for all nurse educators to read.

Education on palliative care should begin early in prelicensure nursing education because of the complex care needs of patients requiring end-of-life care. In this video and article, the authors explain how they integrated the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) curriculum into the prelicensure program. The assessed students’ attitudes on end-of-life care using the Frommelt Attitudes Toward Care of the Dying scale (as sophomores, then again as seniors). Seniors were more comfortable caring for patients at end of life and had a better understanding of their role.

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.

Nursing students are often underprepared for the rigors of graduate writing. Dr. Michelle Hampton used a prospective, repeated-measures design to evaluate 5 years of faculty-implemented writing development strategies in a DNP program. Faculty adopted 12 strategies that addressed skill building in content, construction, format, plagiarism, and citation use. The most frequently used strategies were rubrics, plagiarism detection software, multistep assignments, and examples of well-written papers, all strategies that increased in use over the 5-year study.

Assessment is a vital role of all nurses, yet cardiac murmur identification remains difficult for students. A psychoacoustic approach involves repetition of cardiac sounds to facilitate auditory perceptual learning. The purpose of this study by Dr. Cyphers and her team was to determine the effectiveness of a psychoacoustic learning modality for identification of cardiac murmurs by nurse practitioner students. A repeated-measures design was used. Findings indicated that a psychoacoustic learning approach helps students develop their proficiency in cardiac assessment. In this video and article, you will be introduced to psychoacoustic learning and how to use this approach in teaching assessment in nursing.

The college years are a time of transition in which students experiment with behaviors including use of alcohol. Using a nursing student-faculty collaborative model, students evaluate a mass media campaign with social norming messages and education to influence the drinking culture on a college campus. Students observed the mass media messages, with 81.9% viewing posters. A significant decrease in binge drinking was reported. The mass media campaign, led by nursing students and faculty, was effective at influencing the drinking culture on a college campus.

When preparing for exams and ultimately for the NCLEX-RN, students often approach their faculty for practice questions. Although incorporating questions into a lecture may be an effective teaching strategy, usually the number of questions is limited because, once they are used in class, they are no longer valid for an examination. In this course, students developed their own questions related to content that had been covered in class in exchange for 1 bonus mark on their most recent quiz.

Competency was measured 3 times: after each block of simulated and clinical experiences and following a final simulated experience. There were no significant differences in students’ competency. This study provides important evidence for faculty when making decisions about simulation and clinical practice. Watch this video and be sure to read the article.

Simulation-based learning experiences are designed to prepare the student for clinical practice; however, there is little documentation of a relationship between simulation performance and performance in the clinical setting. When essential aspects of a clinical situation are replicated in simulation, students should readily understand and manage similar situations in clinical practice. The authors studied the relationships between development of clinical nursing judgment, simulation performance, and clinical performance. In this video and article, learn what they found.

Integrating simulation in multiple levels of nursing programs remains a challenge for educators. Nurse educators from various degree granting programs were surveyed to identify placement of multiple nursing concepts. The results of the survey identified concepts that could be incorporated, that is, scaffolded, into various levels of nursing education via concept-based simulations. Categorizing concepts into multiple learner levels provides an efficient, systematic approach to incorporating concepts into simulation throughout any nursing curriculum.

Lateral violence among nurses is a continuing problem in health care, contributing to detrimental individual and organizational consequences. Nurse educators can prepare students to respond effectively to lateral violence before they graduate and enter the workplace, where it is likely to be encountered. Simulation provides an effective platform for delivering this type of student-centered education. The author presents guidelines for educators to integrate lateral violence response training into simulations in prelicensure nursing education. Watch the video and read the article to get details about how to develop a simulation for this purpose.

Many nursing educators have considered the implementation of a concept-based curriculum, with active, conceptual teaching and learning strategies. This curriculum model offers a way to respond to the overwhelming content saturation in many nursing programs. However, barriers abound, including faculty concerns about loss of control, changing faculty role and identity, and fear of failure. Learn from these experts how to overcome these barriers and learn about some practical strategies for success in your curriculum change. Watch the video now and read the full article.

Simulations give students an opportunity to be part of an unknown experience, similar to a movie goer’s first exposure to a popular movie. While students are encouraged to withhold their experience from other students so that all can benefit from the impact of new learning opportunities, reality tells us that students typically share simulation “spoilers.” In an attempt to give a fresh opportunity for students to “watch the movie without reading the book or synopsis,” the author directed the standardized patient in the simulation to go in a new direction.
