The Holistic Self-Care Learning Experience Of Rn-To-Bsn Students: A Phenomenological Study Of Meaning And Value, Elaina C. Mahlan

Doctor of Education (Ed.D)

The health of the nursing workforce is a critical aspect of high-quality health care and community health promotion, but extensive research indicates that too many nurses neglect selfcare and suffer negative health outcomes. While nursing education must provide self-care learning experiences to improve the health of nurses, the value and influence of a learning experience must be interpreted from the learner’s point of view. The purpose of this phenomenological study was to elicit the personal value that RN-to-BSN students ascribed to a self-care learning experience within a holistic nursing course at a public university. The holistic nursing paradigm offers ...


The Effect Of Postpartum Depression Screening Education For Postpartum Nurses, Shecarra S. Cook Oct 2021

The Effect Of Postpartum Depression Screening Education For Postpartum Nurses, Shecarra S. Cook

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Depression affects about 13% of pregnant women and about 10% of women after childbirth. Some cases are so severe, the mother may even commit suicide. If left untreated, postpartum depression (PPD) affects both the mother’s and the infant’s health as well as their quality of life. The gap in clinical practice is that currently, patients only complete a postpartum depression screening tool during their 6-week follow-up appointment with their OB/GYN, leaving a gap in PPD detection and care during the immediate postpartum period. Postpartum nurses are not usually given specialized training in postpartum depression. The purpose of ...

Diversity In Community College Registered Nursing Education, Sergio Hernández Del Cid Jun 2021

Diversity In Community College Registered Nursing Education, Sergio Hernández Del Cid

Ed.D. Dissertations in Practice

The United States is currently facing a shortage of trained professionals in many fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering, and Nursing (Allen-Ramdial & Campbell, 2014; Georgetown University, 2020). As a result, current U.S. nursing student demographics do not mirror the populations they serve (Gooden, Porter, Gonzalez, & Mims, 2001). Research has shown the positive impact a diverse nursing staff has on patient care (Gooden, Porter, Gonzalez, & Mims, 2001). Representative care and cultural awareness translate to better patient outcomes especially for patients from marginalized and underrepresented communities (Woods-Giscombe, Rowsey, Kneipp, Lackey, & Bravo, 2019). Community colleges play a critical role in the supply of registered nurses within the U.S. (Bissett, 1995). For colleges to better address this shortcoming and have a positive effect on patient outcomes, colleges must evaluate current pathway and persistence practices. Additionally, a greater effort must be made to reevaluate application requirements and admissions processes to counter any failings in the current colonial higher education methodologies (Espinosa, 2011; Patel, 2016). The literature indicates two major bottlenecks in diversifying nursing students. First, nursing in the U.S. has historically been perceived as female-dominated profession, and the second bottleneck is the entry requirements and gap in outreach to marginalized and underrepresented (MUR) communities (Aynaci & Gulmez, 2019; Oyana, et al., 2015; Pacquiao, D. (2007). Potential students are often not ...

Obesity Prevention Toolkit To Combat Weight Gain Related To Sedentary Behavior And Dietary Habits In College Students: An Evidence-Based Project, Maria Amos, Martha Fuller

Doctor of Nursing Practice Final Manuscripts

Abstract

Background: Forty percent of the US population ages 20-39 are categorized as obese,

their BMI is over 30, and 35% of college age students are obese or overweight. Issues related to obesity cost the US $147 billion annually. Between 40%-50% of college students are reported to be inactive. Inactivity can lead to increased morbidity and mortality related to increased risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, musculoskeletal issues, and depression. Providing dietary and physical activity education and access to nutritional information promotes behavior change in young adults.

Strategies For The Improvement Of Healthcare Through Simulation, Roger Lankheet May 2021

Strategies For The Improvement Of Healthcare Through Simulation, Roger Lankheet

Dissertations

Title:Strategies for the improvement of healthcare through simulation

Background: Medical errors continue to plague the healthcare industry. The annual rates of morbidity are approximately 2.69 million (AHRQ, 2019), while mortality rates exceed 400,000 per annum (Makary & Daniel, 2016). There may be no panacea to combat these egregious rates. However, simulation of patient care events may better prepare healthcare professionals to prevent medical errors as it has been proven to be an effective learning strategy (Kirkham, 2018), enhancing skills while gaining experiential knowledge, without risk to actual patients.

Purpose: The purpose of this qualitative study was to gain a better understanding of factors that impede or foster the frequent utilization of simulation as a modality to rehearse patient care activities for healthcare professionals, and to better identify processes that could reduce medical errors across the continuum. Aim 1: Describe the demographics of the study population: Current profession, area of specialty, time in profession, time in current role, education level, age of the participant, gender of the participant, and operational setting. Aim 2: Explore and identify barriers to the frequent practice of healthcare simulation. Aim 3: Identify processes that can lead to the reduction of errors in the healthcare industry.

Methods: This was a hermeneutic phenomenological qualitative study that also used descriptive statistics to gain a better understanding of the subjects and their responses to the solicited survey.

Findings: The barriers of time, space, access, and cost continue to pose impediments to iterative rehearsal. These factors were compounded by the paucity of qualified facilitators & support personnel in this modality; all exacerbated by the pandemic. A need for diversity in SBLE to reflect patient population was also identified. According to the participants, the value of simulation is realized through relevant and iterative SBLE. To enhance confidence and competence, participants overwhelmingly indicated the need for monthly rehearsal of patient care events. Leadership buy-in was identified as key to program success.

Implications: By ...

Implementation Of A Protocol In The Freestanding Emergency Department To Screen For And Identify Possible Victims Of Human Trafficking, Joe Alvarado May 2021

Implementation Of A Protocol In The Freestanding Emergency Department To Screen For And Identify Possible Victims Of Human Trafficking, Joe Alvarado

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

Human trafficking (HT) victims often seek medical care in the emergency room setting. In a recent study among HT survivors, 88% attested to receiving medical care while in captivity, with 63% treated in the emergency care setting. Freestanding emergency departments typically have lower acuity and lower patient volumes than hospital-based emergency departments. This setting creates shorter wait times and minimizes the length of stay at every point during the emergency room experience. For traffickers, this is an ideal situation if their victim needs medical attention, and they want to get in and get out of the emergency room with less ...
