Development Of An Academic-Service Alliance To Address New Graduate Registered Nurses’ Practice Readiness, M. Dianne Norman Aug 2020

Development Of An Academic-Service Alliance To Address New Graduate Registered Nurses’ Practice Readiness, M. Dianne Norman

The Organizational Improvement Plan at Western University

New Graduate Registered Nurses’ (NGRN) lack of practice readiness is a Problem of Practice (PoP) impacting hospitals. Stemming from the evolving complexity of today’s healthcare environment and the generalist nature of the baccalaureate nursing program, the lack of NGRN practice readiness increases hospital-based orientation costs, patient safety risks, and NGRN attrition. There is currently no formal structure in which key stakeholders can address the NGRN lack of knowledge, skills and judgment and the associated implications for the safety and quality of patient care. This Organizational Improvement Plan (OIP) examines NGRN practice readiness within the organizational context of the Health ...

Exploring Resiliency During The Nursing Student Clinical Experience, Natalie N. Mcmullin May 2020

Exploring Resiliency During The Nursing Student Clinical Experience, Natalie N. Mcmullin

The Organizational Improvement Plan at Western University

In nursing programs, it is common for students to not complete their degree (Van Hoek et al., 2019). This problem is perpetuated as students who experience high stress and lack resiliency are more likely to be unsuccessful or take longer to complete their nursing degree (Van Hoek et al., 2019). Resiliency is not only important for students during their degree, it is essential to continuously strengthen it throughout their nursing career (Turner & Kaylor, 2015). The aims of this organizational improvement plan will be to empower nursing students to be more resilient in the clinical setting so that they are more ...

Investigating Metacognition In New Graduates Transitioning To Professional Nursing Practice, Cynthia Delle Site Jul 2019

Investigating Metacognition In New Graduates Transitioning To Professional Nursing Practice, Cynthia Delle Site

Nursing Dissertations

Annually, large numbers of new nurses are entering the professional practice environment. To function effectively in practice, nurses must reflect on identifying how they learn, be skillful thinkers, and know when to retrieve and apply previously learned information or skills to clinical situations for effective decision-making. There is a lack of nursing literature measuring transfer of knowledge during the nursing student experience and upon attaining nursing licensure, from academia into clinical practice. As minimal nursing research has examined metacognition and metacognitive abilities, it was important to conduct this study to establish a foundation. The intent of this quantitative descriptive study ...

Nurse Anesthesia Program Administrator's Decision-Making In Determining Interventions For A Student Exhibiting Unsatisfactory Clinical Performance, Laura S. Bonanno

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this grounded theory study is to define the process that nurse anesthesia program administrators use to determine if a student nurse anesthetist’s unsatisfactory clinical performance warrants intervention by the program. There is little room for error in anesthesia practice as mishaps typically result in significant injury and death. Students who exhibit unsatisfactory clinical performance may pose an immediate risk to patient safety as well as a future risk if allowed to progress in the program. The lack of guidance in the form of clearly articulated expectations and processes contribute to the emotional strain nurse anesthesia faculty ...


Differences In Kaplan Integrated Exam Scores Based On Institutional Factors, Lee Ann Danner May 2019

Differences In Kaplan Integrated Exam Scores Based On Institutional Factors, Lee Ann Danner

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Registered Nurses constitute the largest health care occupation in the United States. Current entry-level education for the profession of nursing is either an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) (Altman, 2011).
