In response to the need for nurses to understand components of readmission reduction, these authors developed an innovative 2-part readmission root-cause analysis assignment. In this video and article, they describe this assignment and how they use it in their care coordination course.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent social distancing guidelines have greatly impacted the quality of life (QoL) of nursing faculty and students. Dr. Keener presents the findings of 2 critical studies done by her team that examined the effects of the pandemic and subsequent changes in nursing education on faculty and students’ QoL. Resilience was the strongest variable to predict QoL for faculty. Resilience, having online experience, and being prepared for online learning were associated with each QoL domain for students. Get a summary of the research in this video. Read the study on faculty now. The study on Students will be in the May/June 2021 issue of Nurse Educator.

In this video and article, Dr. Thomas explain how the faculty established a process for using simulation for the evaluation of program outcomes. Faculty evaluated students’ performance in simulation as a means to examine their achievement of program outcomes. The project informed curricular decisions, helped faculty to standardize scenarios, and outlined a process of establishing validity and reliability that could be implemented in the future for student evaluation.

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.

There may be times when 2 faculty members share responsibility for the same group of students in a clinical practicum. For example, 1 faculty member may teach the students in simulation for some interval of time, and then another faculty member may teach those same students in the clinical setting. There is potential for missed communication or handoff between these faculty. Learn how to use SBAR between faculty members as the student transitions from one learning setting to the next as part of a clinical practicum. Watch the educators in action in this video and read the full teaching tips.
