BACKGROUND: High-risk infants are highly susceptible to skin impairment caused by invasive procedures, radiant warmers, and phototherapy, in addition to their intrinsic vulnerability. This leads to a vicious cycle that aggravates the risk of skin infections. Concerns have been raised that neonatal nurses may lack knowledge regarding feasible guidelines to improve skin integrity of high-risk newborns. METHOD: A clinical guideline was developed for neonatal skin care practices based on skin physio...
BACKGROUND: Nurses experience poor quality of life due to workload and role stress. In this study, a spirituality-based intervention was administered to nurse managers. METHOD: A total of 45 nurse managers participated in the study; 24 were assigned to the experimental group, and 21 were assigned to a control group. The Holy Name Meditation Program was provided solely to the experimental group. Pretest, posttest 1 (5 weeks after the intervention), posttest 2 (12 weeks after the intervention), an...
Immediate high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation are essential to survival, yet CPR skills deteriorate without frequent repetition. Basic Life Support-focused Code Blue team-based simulation is needed in continuing education to bridge this gap. This article outlines a teaching plan for hospital orientation and subsequent scenarios to improve the resuscitation response. [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2020;51(5):205-208.].
BACKGROUND: Hospital-based educators use resource-intensive residency and continuing education programs to assist RNs in delivering evidence-based practice (EBP). Yet, little is known about whether such programs improve or sustain nurses' EBP values, knowledge, and implementation. METHOD: A two-group longitudinal posttest-only study was conducted using a convenience sample of 115 RNs; 51 participants received a comprehensive EBP continuing education intervention, and 64 participants received no ...
Pandemics are by nature "out of the blue." Their unpredictable nature and impact can leave nurses and support systems reeling. Nurses are physically and emotionally exhausted but also may be isolated from the physical and emotional support of families and other loved ones. As leaders concurrently manage the logistical and resource challenges of the COVID-19 epidemic, it is essential for leaders to also lift their gaze to the future. Leaders can be a force multiplier for supporting resilience in ...
BACKGROUND: Rapid and accurate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) performed by clinical nurses plays an important role in increasing the survival rate of cardiac arrest patients in the hospital. PURPOSE: This study examined the effects of a simulation-based CPR training program on knowledge, performance, and stress of CPR in clinical nurses. METHOD: A quasi-experimental pretest-posttest control group design was used. Study participants included 60 clinical nurses (experimental group, n = 30, an...
Socialization for the nurse in transition to a new unit, organization, or hospital system begins in the early stages of the onboarding process. The nursing professional development practitioner has an opportunity to provide activities and experiences that support socialization while the nurse in transition develops an understanding of the culture of the practice setting. [J Contin Educ Nurs. 2020; 51(5):200-202.].
BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the effects of the Training-for-Transformation (TFT) program on tuberculosis (TB)/multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in China. METHOD: Participants who received training from 2009 to 2017 (n = 230) were invited to complete an online survey using a self-designed questionnaire. RESULTS: A total of 130 (56.5%) trainees completed the survey for a valid response rate of 70% (91 of 130). All of the participants created a schedule and offered a TFT program on TB/MDR-TB for...
BACKGROUND: The competence of nurses who care for patients with finger replantation is critical for positive patient outcomes. This study sought to identify the effects of standardized patient (SP)-based training on surgical ward nurses' knowledge, clinical performance, and self-efficacy regarding finger replantation. METHOD: A wait-list control group with a crossover design was used for this study. Nurses were randomly assigned to group A (n = 10) or to the wait-list control group B (n = 10). T...
