One of the most significant impacts in the topic-based FLCs was having members create a scholarly product such as articles, letters, theatrical performances, books, faculty modules, briefs and paintings.

Background: Very few studies measuring writing self-efficacy or anxiety in undergraduate nursing students exist in the education literature. The purpose of the present investigation was to identify if changes to writing self-efficacy and writing anxiety will occur in first-year baccalaureate nursing students who are exposed to a discipline-specific scholarly writing course employing scaffolding strategies as the primary instructional method. Concurrently, this study was the pilot test for a new measure assessing writing self-efficacy, The Self-Efficacy Scale for Academic Writing.

Method: A one-group pre-test/posttest design was employed. Sixty-four (64) paired questionnaires were available for analysis. Bandura’s self-efficacy theory and ...

The reform of nursing education programs and their gradual shift to a competency-based approach lays the groundwork for the introduction of active teaching strategies. These strategies focus on exposing learners to situations similar to those they will encounter in their professional practice, while encouraging them to reflect on their learning processes.

This article defines a model to support the development of clinical judgment among nurses and student nurses by having them reflect on various care scenarios. The ...
