Transforming Nursing Education with Apple Technology

Video Author: Angela Clark
Published on: 03.13.2017
Associated with: Nurse Educator. 42(2):91-94, March/April 2017

The widespread adoption of technology has the potential to redefine nursing education. Currently, there is limited knowledge of how to implement technological advancements in nursing curricula. The iPad opens the classroom experience to resources and learning opportunities for students. Facilitating the culture change required to adopt the iPad as a teaching and learning tool requires a supportive vision, strong leadership, commitment to provide adequate technological support, early adopters, and planning. Learn how this faculty integrated Apple technology throughout their nursing program: watch the video and be sure to read the article.

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. If you teach in a DNP program, do not miss watching this video and reading the article.

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.

This qualitative study explored the perceptions of newly graduated RNs about how their educational experiences as prelicensure students prepared them to enter the nursing workforce. Interviews with 10 RNs revealed that nursing programs did not adequately prepare them for their multifaceted roles and responsibilities. Nursing faculty should implement practice-oriented educational experiences to facilitate students to assume professional roles and responsibilities when they enter the nursing workforce. The authors describe their study in this video (be sure to read the full article).

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.

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.
