Transformations in the delivery of health care from hospital to community have brought about many changes in nursing practice. These, in turn, have necessitated alterations in the education of nursing students, the curricula, and clinical experiences. Confident that nursing is an independent practice, exclusive of the health care setting, our faculty decided to direct our teaching efforts to reflect changes in health care delivery. We restructured our baccalaureate nursing program's senior level...
Abstract A FORTUNE COOKIE READS:“Knowing and not doing are equal to not knowing at all,” meaning knowledge without action is useless. In the world of nursing, knowledge gained through research should inevitably manifest itself in some clinical application. Evidence-based practice is increasing nurses' knowledge regarding pathology and responses to health and illness, while technological innovations have increased our capacity to investigate, communicate, and implement findings. Research conducte...
Abstract A southeastern university school of nursing responded to a request by a local housing authority to provide nursing care and health promotion to the residents of three high-rise complexes for independent living for seniors. This service-learning partnership offers differing educational benefits to graduate and undergraduate nursing students while helping residents remain as well as possible.
Abstract Genetics advances and their clinical applications have created a new era in health care. As a result of the Human Genome Project, initiated in 1991 as a collaborative effort of the National Institutes of Health, the National Center for Human Genome Research, and the Department of Energy, there is a new understanding among health care professionals regarding the role of genetics in health and illness.
Abstract FOR ALL OF US, LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. We have learned a difficult lesson about the fragility of life. Together, we have cried, prayed, hugged, and screamed. Many of us have been on the scenes of the disasters, as workers and volunteers, taking blood, providing trauma care, and listening to the tears and fears of the many victims and their families and friends.
Abstract “Start spreading the news,…I want to be a part of it…” These words from Frank Sinatra's famous song about NLN's hometown — New York, New York — evoke the feelings that emerged from the NLN's Education Summit 2000, held in Nashville in September. This meeting must be represented as nothing short of a “happening” for nursing — a happening that made public and sanctioned our needs as educators: to share new information about curriculum and instruction, to network regarding our lives as edu...
Abstract NOW NEARLY A DECADE OLD, the original Pew Health Professions Commission Competencies have stood up well to the test of time. The competencies were designed to provide all health professionals, from physicians to physical therapists, with a general guide to the values, skills, and knowledge they would need to be successful in the health care system that was beginning to emerge in the late 1980s. They have been used across the range of health professions and in many practice settings to c...
Abstract In their time, they were giants, and their legacy endures. Most notable about the contributions of Estelle Massey Riddle Osborne and Mabel Keaton Staupers as outstanding black leaders of the 20th century were the passion and perseverance they shared. The two women were instrumental in eliminating discrimination in nursing and accelerating the integration of black nurses into schools of nursing, employment settings, and national organizations. They were contemporaries and participated in...
Abstract In May, we will once again celebrate nursing and nurses. Our annual Nurses Week celebration coincides with the birth month of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern secular nursing. I believe that during this period of rapid change, it is particularly important that we remain centered on, make visible, and celebrate the core values of nursing. Florence Nightingale provided us with a framework, relevant today, for speaking explicitly about our values and the essential features of nu...
