The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of a poverty simulation on the attitudes of baccalaureate nursing students toward those living in poverty. A single-group pretest-posttest design was used. Participants' attitudes were measured using the Attitude Toward Poverty Scale-Short Form. Results indicated significant improvement in 11 out of 21 items, along with the subscales for stigma and structural perspectives. However, four items, along with the overall personal deficiency domain score, indicated a significant worsening of attitudes. Results of this study are mixed and suggest that valid concerns exist regarding the administration of the simulation.

Untethered Lecture Capture (ULC) permits faculty to be freely mobile in the classroom (untethered) and synchronously create reusable learning media assets (lecture capture) through mobile technology resources. Integrating the cognitive theory of multimedia instruction with ULC creates affordances that facilitate learning. Anecdotal student comments indicate ULC supports accessibility, enhances personalized self-paced learning, and creates opportunities for academic success. Untethered faculty teach among students, enhancing in-class focus, time-on-task, and student-faculty engagement. Although all students may benefit from ULC teaching strategies, first-generation students and students whose first language is not English reported increased confidence, coupled with decreased stress.

With the increased attention to patient safety and quality care in health care, it is imperative that prelicensure health care provider students are taught to collaborate effectively to decrease medical errors. For this project, simulated participants were utilized as health care providers for a simulation in a stand-alone nursing school without affiliation to a medical or allied health school. Both simulated participants and students reacted positively to the experience. This project demonstrated that utilizing simulated participants to portray health care providers in simulation scenarios is a feasible and well-received method of providing learning experiences that emphasize the importance of collaboration.

The current nurse faculty shortage warrants new models for both retaining faculty effectively and coaching new faculty efficiently. An approach for retaining faculty members through meeting publication review criteria while conserving senior faculty mentoring time is proposed. This article describes a successful manuscript development process using teamwork and coaching among faculty. The outcomes of this efficacious process - submission and acceptance of publishable manuscripts - are reported for two institutions: one is research intensive, and the other is teaching intensive. A noted outcome also includes ideas for future manuscript development process replication.

Recruiting and retaining preceptors is a major challenge for nurse practitioner (NP) programs. The purpose of this project was to identify preceptor rewards that may foster NP preceptor recruitment and retention at one university. Seventy preceptors were surveyed regarding their reward preferences using rewards identified in the literature and among regional NP programs. The most preferred rewards included continuing education credits, professional growth opportunities, maintaining professional relationships with the university, and financial remuneration. To provide NP students with positive and effective clinical experiences, it is essential that NP program leaders understand preceptors' preferences and commit to preceptor support.

This article describes an innovative interdisciplinary project that partnered nursing and engineering technology students. The students constructed patient transfer and mobility technology that addressed crucial operational, safety, and usability metrics. The final constructed prototype was presented to an international audience during a two-week study abroad. The project was designed to explore the development of effective interdisciplinary teamwork, recognition of discipline-specific expertise, and a greater understanding of the global health care environment. Qualitative content analysis design was used to determine the impact on leadership development, effective team synergy, and the global health care experience.

Nurse educators must create meaningful learning for students while addressing the needs of a rapidly changing health care system. Academic-practice partnerships help ensure that students are up-to-date on current practices while faculty and students partner to support the needs of the practice institution. To address a health care system’s high amputation rates, school of nursing faculty developed a concept-based learning activity to assess and educate patients at risk for amputation. Results included increased student learning that can be applied to other practice settings and improved outcomes for the health care system.
