Nursing faculty address sensitive topics such as gender, sexuality, and race. These issues are essential considerations for students to care for diverse populations. In this video and article, faculty explain how to set up a communication lab in a virtual format for discussion of sensitive topics. This lab builds professional nursing attitudes, values, and communication skills that need to be practiced by students.

In this video the authors describe an innovative service-learning project done virtually. The school of nursing has a practice partnership with the Nurse Family Partnership to provide their clients with presentations on health promotion. Historically students presented to a live audience. However, virtual sessions offer more flexibility. The virtual health promotion sessions were presented in real time using Facebook Live. A platform called StreamYard was also used. This combination allowed the presentations to include show slides, pictures, diagrams, and videos. Learn more from their article.

In an effort to address persistent barriers to technological adaptation by nursing faculty, help desk data were reviewed to identify trends and implications. The help desk reports identified areas in which faculty frequently sought assistance. The trends identified within the records provide a foundation for efforts to support faculty development.

The dedicated education unit (DEU) is an innovative approach to clinical education, which uses clinical nurses with expert practice consistently in a competency-based experience. 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.

The lack of a diverse nursing workforce and inclusive nursing student pipeline can impact existing health disparities in the U.S. Developing collaborative relationships with historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) for recruitment is a mutually beneficial strategy. Undergraduate interns from 3 HBCUs attended a 6-week summer nursing immersion program at a graduate school of nursing on the campus of a predominately White institution. The program managed by Black nurse faculty provides a recruitment strategy.
