Nurse Educators' Experiences Of Student Remediation, Holly A Dever Jan 2023

Nurse Educators' Experiences Of Student Remediation, Holly A Dever

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Little is known about the nurse educator's experiences in remediating novice undergraduate nursing students who failed an exam early in the program of study. While numerous strategies have been used by faculty for remediation, no evidence-based methodology for student remediation has been identified in published literature. The aim of this study was to build a foundation of qualitative research on nurse educators' experiences in the remediation of a student who failed an exam. This basic qualitative study, guided by Smith and Liehr's story theory, explored the nurse educator's experiences with remediation using interview data collected from six nurse educators. Interviews …

Mentorship Education For Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Eleanor Dunlap Jan 2021

Mentorship Education For Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Eleanor Dunlap

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Mentorship is vital part of the nursing profession. The evidence suggests that competent mentors aid in facilitating role transitions, improving job satisfaction, enhancing patient care, and decreasing nursing turnover. Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) have the skill and knowledge to provide safe, high-quality, patient-centered care; however, they may be lacking in mentorship abilities. Currently, there is no formal mentorship training in the organization, which may cause variability in the mentoring of new staff. The focus of this project was to create a staff educational intervention to improve the mentoring competency of surgical APRNs. The project practice focused question asked if …


Evidenced-Based Staff Education Program For Novice Perioperative Nurses, Marjorie Jasinski Jan 2019

Evidenced-Based Staff Education Program For Novice Perioperative Nurses, Marjorie Jasinski

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Knowledge of surgical procedures, instruments, and supplies is essential to the perioperative nurse working in the operating room (OR). Nursing school curricula do not specifically educate surgical nurses; therefore, it is difficult to fill open OR positions with experienced perioperative nurses. The purpose of this doctoral project was to develop a perioperative educational program for RNs newly hired in the OR. The practice-focused question asked whether an evidence-based staff education program for the novice perioperative nurse would increase the nurse's knowledge of OR procedures and protocols for patient management. The novice-to-expert framework was used to explore how adult learners acquire …

Nursing Students' And Novice Clinical Instructors' Experiences With Clinical Instruction And Assessment, Bridgett Alveta Jackson

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Adjunct faculty members make up a growing proportion of nursing school clinical faculty in the United States due to a nurse educator shortage in higher education. Many of the nurses hired as clinical faculty members have years of experience providing patient care, but they lack experience in clinical instruction and assessment. At a state community college in the southeastern United States, nursing students have expressed dissatisfaction in their course evaluations with inexperienced faculty in clinical programs. The experiences of both nursing students under the guidance of novice clinical instructors and clinical faculty were examined in this case study. The National …
