Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

The preponderance of nursing research conducted in the United States occurs in schools of nursing. Accordingly, a major role for academic leaders in nursing education is the development of a resource base to support and expand the research mission of the nursing program. The intersection of research and practice is also an essential element for assuring the relevance of nursing research and advancing the application of the evidence generated by nursing scientists. The following paper presents an introduction to nursing research in the U.S. with an emphasis on the educational and operational resources needed to maintain a robust research ...

Interprofessional Simulation Learning With Nursing And Pharmacy Students: A Qualitative Study, Pauline Paul, Joanne K. Olson, Cheryl Sadowski, Brian Parker, Angele Alook, Deirdre Jackman, Cheryl Cox, Stewart Maclennan

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

Health science students are increasingly learning in simulated situations within their own disciplines, but interprofessional simulation learning (ISL) does not occur as often and is rarely investigated. This research explored perceptions of undergraduate nursing (n=5) and pharmacy (n=4) students with respect to how ISL contributed to discipline-specific learning, to learning about the other profession, and to the development of interprofessional skills. The students were exposed to three ISL activities with data gathered from observation of the simulation sessions, individual interviews, and field notes. Content analysis was conducted. Student participants described the ISL activities as a positive learning experience ...

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

Pour contribuer activement à la santé des personnes, les infirmières doivent faire appel à une diversité de savoirs dans leur pratique. Face à l’augmentation constante de la complexité des soins, la formation de la relève comporte des enjeux majeurs. L’étude visait à caractériser le processus de mobilisation des savoirs par une pensée critique chez des étudiantes infirmières bachelières en situation de soins en vue de mieux comprendre son déploiement et de le soutenir. Une approche qualitative, inspirée de la théorisation ancrée a mis au jour certains des facteurs d’influence sur ce processus en recourant à un entretien ...


Clinical Nursing Reasoning In Nursing Practice: A Cognitive Learning Model Based On A Think Aloud Methodology, Johanne Goudreau, Louise Boyer, Dimitri Létourneau 2014 Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing

Clinical Nursing Reasoning In Nursing Practice: A Cognitive Learning Model Based On A Think Aloud Methodology, Johanne Goudreau, Louise Boyer, Dimitri Létourneau

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

Background. The current context of increasingly complex nursing care requires a high level of clinical reasoning in nursing practice. Still, teaching clinical reasoning in nursing remains a challenge for educators in the field. Although several studies have been conducted to try to understand clinical reasoning in nursing, neither its developmental stages nor the corresponding critical milestones have been uncovered. Therefore, nursing educators cannot rely on a cognitive learning model (a description of how people learn and develop a specific competency) to facilitate the learning of this crucial competency.

Objectives. This study was conducted to develop a cognitive learning model of ...

Story Based Learning: A Student Centred Practice-Oriented Learning Strategy, Karen Mackinnon, Lynne E. Young

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

Story based learning (SBL) has evolved as a way to promote quality in nursing education by assisting faculty to develop a student-centred learning environment. SBL is a teaching/learning strategy that also strengthens learners’ capacities to provide quality nursing care. Health professional education has been identified as a key contributor to advancing quality care. Key documents identify the pillars of quality health professional education as client–centred care, inter-professional education, teamwork and collaborative learning, knowledge mobilization and evidence-based practice, awareness of the limits of one’s knowledge as a foundation for reflective practice and life-long learning, and mastery of a ...

Confronting The Social Mandate For Nursing Scholarship – One School Of Nursing’S Journey., Susan M. Duncan, Star Mahara, Victoria Holmes

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

The move to advance the qualification of nurses has necessitated the expansion of baccalaureate degree level nursing education to colleges and other less research-intensive post-secondary institutions in Canada and beyond. Shifts in the post-secondary institutional contexts of nursing education necessitate a re-thinking of the mandate and purpose of scholarship in nursing and how it can be sustained. Over a span of forty years, Thompson Rivers University School of Nursing has evolved from a community college program to one situated in a university college, and most recently within a new university. In this paper, we describe the purpose and process of ...

Birth Centre Management And Business Skill Training For Community Midwives Of Pakistan, Laila Lalji, Laila Akbar Ali, Marina Baig, Rozina Sewani, Arusa Lakhani, Karyn Kaufman, Rafat Jan

Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM)

The Community Midwifery program was introduced in 2007 across Pakistan with the idea that the trained Community Midwives (CMWs) will be deployed back to their ‘native’ rural communities. Hence, they are not employed by government rather they must earn their income by charging fees for their services. It is expected from them to attract clients, establish birth clinics and operate as a small business to support and sustain them financially. However, the CMW training program only teaches students about antenatal, intranatal, postnatal and newborn care, family planning services and awareness of community dynamics and does not include content about setting ...


Midwifery In India And Its Roadmap, Manju Chhugani 2014 The Aga Khan University

Midwifery In India And Its Roadmap, Manju Chhugani

Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM)

Healthy women are the key to the health of any nation. Midwifery in India has climbed up the ladder of progression from before independence till the present day. In the pre-independence era, maternal and newborn care was given by indigenous dais who not only helped during childbirth but also acted as consultants for any condition of the mother related to birth. They were midwives in the literal sense. Over the time, midwifery in India has broadened to the presence of a skilled birth attendant during childbirth. The maternal health status of women and maternal mortality are closely related to the ...

Exploring Adolescent Reproductive Health Knowledge, Perceptions, And Behavior, Among Students Of Non-Government Secondary Schools Supported By Brac Mentoring Program In Rural Bangladesh, Bachera Aktar, Malabika Sarker, Andrew Jenkins

Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM)

Adolescence is the transition period from childhood to adulthood. Since Bangladesh is such a conservative society, reproductive health education for adolescents has not been widely introduced. Very small adolescent health components are included in the secondary and higher secondary school curricula. The BRAC Mentoring Program provides mentorship training to secondary school pupils to develop them as peer leaders. However, this program does not provide adolescent reproductive health education. Therefore, a study, supported by BRAC Education Program in rural Bangladesh, was conducted to explore the current status of reproductive health knowledge, perceptions and practice among the students of secondary schools. This ...

Learner Anxiety And Professional Practice Self-Efficacy In Nursing Education, Joanna Pierazzo 2014 Western University

Learner Anxiety And Professional Practice Self-Efficacy In Nursing Education, Joanna Pierazzo

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The purpose of this study was to examine the affective component of learner engagement (Linnenbrink & Printrich, 2003); more specifically students’ perceptions of learner anxiety and self-efficacy for professional practice in clinical nursing education. This study identified the factors in clinical learning contexts that contribute to learner anxiety, the differences among these factors in real and simulated learning contexts, and finally, the teaching and learning strategies that minimize learner anxiety and positively enhance self-efficacy for professional nursing practice. A convenience sample of 186 students from three university nursing programs in Ontarioparticipated in a two-phased mixed methods study, reflecting a response rate of 72 ...
