Questions related to Nursing
According to your experience, what is the contribution of having (vs not) a Ph.D. in Nursing program in your nursing school in outcomes such as faculty productivity (and others of course)
ICU nursing staffing's impact on patient (and other) outcomes is well documented in the literature. Nonetheless, methods (e.g. Nursing activities score) have been criticized during the last decade for not including several aspects of the nurse's work besides bedside duties.
Currently, which would be the most valid approach /tool to objectively estimate nursing staffing?
For a research on a psychotherapeutic intervention for health care employees in the face of COVID-19 I am looking for the Nursing Stress Scale or a similar instrument to measure stress in nursing-staff. It would be great if anyone could help me.
Thank you :)
Hello, I am in my first semester of my PhD program and looking to connect with nursing scholars about sexual health in vulnerable populations. My dissertation ideas are broad, but I know this is my area of interest and I would love to find scholars to connect with as I develop my research.
I am interested in research and I want to learn more about research, and I think the best way to learn more and add experience is to become a research assistant. Right? or Nahh?
This week's blog post features a just-published article by my nursing honors student Linda Driscoll Powers. Linda's most interesting finding is that people with a childhood history of physical abuse reported more physical pain as adults, which might have contributed to their over-use of opioids. https://sites.google.com/view/two-minds/blog
I'm trying to find good industry wide data on healthcare turnover (specifically nursing assistants) and how it accelerated during COVID-19. What resources are available? If you don't know specific healthcare data, I will also take general all industry wide acceleration information. Thank you in advance!
Dear Researchers in evidence synthesis,
We are mostly dependent on Google Scholar, PubMed, and Cochrane only for our search to cater and include the studies. How much of the total health sciences records are covered by these engines? What are the others available open access? Can we add ClinicalTrials.gov as an engine?
Dear Sir Fisher.
Currently I'm doing masters in health professional education and for my thesis my topic is SDL. I was reviewing your articles and in one of them "Development of a self-directed learning readiness scale for nursing education" you have mentioned the SDLRS scale. I wanted to use the SDLRS. Can you guide from where I can easily excess and use this tool?

Triage Decision Making inventory (TDMI) questionnaire 27 questions have three dimensions of cognitive abilities, experience and intuition, and in the study we want to use the 7-question questionnaire "acknowledges using intuition in nursing scale (AUINS)".
1- Is it possible to use the above two questionnaires simultaneously in the study and perform correlation measurement, considering that one of the dimensions of the TDMI questionnaire is intuition?
2- If it is not possible to use simultaneously and the possibility of communication, is it possible to remove the intuition dimension of the TDMI questionnaire? And how can this be done with reason and logic?
I'm a master student at the Baghdad University/ college of Nursing/ Adult nursing department...
I'm working on my master thesis project and I need the patients information from the medical records ( patients file) as a part of data collection tool...
So I'm asking about the permission for using the patients file from anyone can be taken...
I would like to build a small, but somewhat nationally representative sample of graduate students in social work and nursing for an online survey. Will I be able to do so using Amazon's Mechanical Turk? (MTurk), or is the specificity of this recruitment criterion too narrow?
Also, is there a way to verify, such as requiring participants to upload their university registration status or transcript?
I'm running an exploratory study at a hospital, involving different groups of staff that come in contact with a patient; such as surgeons, anaesthetists, junior doctors (interns and HMOs), nurses, ward receptionists, interpreters and patient service assistants. Each focus group will be homogeneous to the field/job title of the staff. Group sizes will be between 4-6 participants, with a degree of flexibility, and staff who are interested to participated and cannot attend a focus group due to schedule difficulties (e.g. surgeons), will be offered one on one interviews.
I understand an exploratory study will continue until saturation is reached. But I need some literature to point me towards potential sample sizes to aim for (required for the ethic application).
Should I aim for 1 group in each field. Or should I aim to balance the sample sizes between each field (eg medical, nursing, other hospital staff)?
The literature that I've read has been inconsistent, suggesting anywhere between 1-10 groups may be enough.
I Ued quasi-experimental desgin with random convenience sample ( that mean random assigment to control group and intervention group)

I am considering conducting an umbrella review on nursing incivility interventions for nursing professionals as a possible subject for my dissertation. However, at the moment I found only 2 systematic reviews that fulfill my inclusion crteria. On the other hand, there are few integrative revierws on the topic, could these be included in an umbrella review?
In any other case, my options would be to either broaden my search criteria by e.g including nursing students and faculty in the population or change the subject.
I need a standardized assessment tool/ questionnaire to conduct a study with patients post covid. To assess they nursing and rehab needs and specifics .
where to get permission to use the Expanded Nursing Stress Scale in my dissertation? Can i know about the interpretation?
I am trying to figure out how self-efficacy and confidence of patient activation are different. I know that self-efficacy is a more situation specific term and confidence is for general situations. But the concept "patient activation" has an element of "confidence" and the items for confidence of Patient Activation Measure (PAM) sound like self-efficacy to me. Anyone who can give me any ideas or suggestions of books, readings, etc..?
I want to administer tamoxifen to P9 neonate mice. Does anyone have any experience injecting tamoxifen in the nursing mother in order to administer tamoxifen to her pups? If so, what is the recommended dosing strategy and how long does it take for the pups to be exposed to tamoxifen? Thanks!
I am looking for participants who would participate in a survey on discrimination in nursing. Are there any collaborations with hospitals or nursing facilities that might be interested in participating? I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Rodgers’ evolutionary concept analysis is being used in Nursing field. I could not find any paper that prove that Rodgers’ evolutionary concept analysis has been used in any other fields other than Nursing.
Is it possible if i use it for computer science field ?
I am attempting to identify the variables and the hypothesis in this work, as well as gaps in the the study
A teaching method comprises the principles and methods used for instruction to be implemented by teachers to achieve the desired learning in students. These strategies are determined partly on subject matter to be taught and partly by the nature of the learner. Nursing is a multidimensional technique, a science and an art. Based on this fact, what is the best method of teaching in nursing?
I skimmed an article that read - "How to Make the Nursing Profession Disappear". It went further to elaborate that This involves breaking down the role of the nurse into its constituent parts. Generally, the more specialized the area within which nurses work, the easier this is to do.
split off all the aspects of the role that nurses traditionally performed, once separated from the whole, the role can be performed by lesser qualified, or equally qualified but cheaper, or unqualified staff, and we put these aside.
is there a problem??
Hello all Research Gate users.
I wonder if Nursing Boards in Europe or Nursing Accreditation Bodies for nursing and/or midwifery contacts (e.g. e-mail addresses) are somewhere available online or I simply have to find them on one to one basis.
Thank you all for helping
Nursing is a profession which deals with many aspects of people's lives. Nurses are often faced with ethical problems and experience many conflicts between their professional oath. The influence of conscience on nurses has frequently been described but its impact on their practice has received less attention. During their daily practice, they need to quickly decide on one of the several competing options. Conscience i directs individuals towards non-maleficence and veracity and helps people understand their duties for coping with life as a valuable component of nursing practice which demands sensitivity, respect for human rights, and attentive and dignified care delivery. How to increase work conscience in nursing?
Many drugs, if taken by nursing mother,while she is breast feeding passes to the child through breast milk and have either beneficial, or in many cases toxic effect to the infant or child. That is the reason why some drugs are not given to nursing mothers. In the same, I am glad if I get information on how COVID-19 vaccine passes to milk and helps in vaccinating child or have harmful effect.
To all who currently work in healthcare,
Please complete the questionnaire "COVID Vaccine Hesitancy in healthcare workers" developed by the Infectious Diseases-International Research Initiative (ID-IRI). It will only take you 5 minutes!
This study aims to identify the factors influencing the willingness to accept or refuse the COVID-19 vaccine. The survey is available in several languages.
Thanks in advance for your time and collaboration.

At the beginning of each shift, how nurses distribute current patients in the unit?
According to my experience, there several factors that are considered such as if the patient is on ECMO, mechanically ventilated, on a particular isolation precaution...
Also, there are nursing to patient ratios as guidelines but their account for the number rather than specific features of the patient.
Any other criteria or methods?
Thanks in advance for your input.

I will be conducting a research study to investigate the feasibility and utility of using a digital translation technology in clinical practice in promoting interpersonal relationships, therapeutic communication, patient engagement, and supporting mental health recovery and well-being.
Peplau's Interpersonal Relationships in Nursing will be used as the theoretical framework for the study.
Dear Nursing Colleagues,
Have a good day, I'm working on a nursing paper and I'm happy to collaborate with any nursing colleague who has access to the Journal Citation Reports website.
I am doing a project on workload and roles of Consultant Psychiatrists on Acute psychiatric wards to facilitate future planning and equitable workload. Currently work as Consultant psychiatrist on a 20 bed open public mental health ward.
While a lot of information on nursing workload, very little on psychiatrists.
I'm looking for a few good examples of studies that use single-case (preferably multiple baseline) designs in peer reviewed publications that have enhanced nursing practice in some way. Either treatment or educational interventions would be helpful.
Hope this email finds you well

Since I'm interested in Conceptual Analysis, I've been searching for work making use of this "research method". What surprised me is that almost half of the papers I found are from the field/discipline of Nursing Studies/Research. Considering that arguably all scientific fields/disciplines (sociology, psychology, mathematics, engineering, linguistics, law, economics, physics, philosophy, medicine, etc.) could equally employ Conceptual Analysis, can anyone explain to me the special connection there seems to be between Nursing Studies/Research and Conceptual Analysis? Thank you!
In my college there is several courses and batches how can I setup it in Moodle platform. For example our institution having 4 colleges . one is Medical college, 2 nd one Nursing College, Nursing School, Paramedical college and Ayurveda Paramedical college. Same teachers may conduct some subjects in different colleges . So I need to know how to set up a course in to batch wise? how to allot teachers and students? etc
Dear Professor Maria Müller-Staub
Greetings and Regards
I am a Ph.D. Nursing Student in Iran
I am interested in promoting the nursing profession
Unfortunately, the nursing profession in Iran is very weak, nursing care is traditionally done.
Nursing documentation, satisfaction, and interaction of the patient-nurse is very weak.
The nursing process in Iran is only in the form of research proposals.
In the first step in promoting nursing, we did an extensive study to identify of the implementation strategies the nursing process in different countries and to investigate the causes of non-implementation of the nursing process in developing countries. And the result of this extensive study is a review article entitled "Barriers to non-implementation of the nursing process in developing countries: A narrative review".
Given your vast background in this area, please help me in editing the article in terms of content and translation from you as an author.
Thanks & Regards
I need to investigate knowledge and competency in woud care fild in particular a structurated and validate questionnaire or survay exploring competency among nurses
Teaching Psychomotor skills constitute a significant element in undergraduate nursing education.
Psychomotor skills training for nursing students involves many steps. They are lecture-demonstration, simulation practice, followed by practice in clinical settings to gain competency in psychomotor skills. However, during this COVID 19 pandemic nursing students, especially beginners in the nursing programs, are restricted from clinical practice for the time being due to safety concerns. Therefore, Academicians are finding it challenging to integrate theory to practice, be in a simulated laboratory setting, or real-time practice in the clinical areas. The effectiveness of virtual psychomotor skill training is yet to be researched in our local contexts, especially from the students' point of view.
For quality assessment of observational studies, as done in a systematic review, a number of scales exist. The major ones are ROBINS-I, Newcastle Ottawa Scale, and Appraisal Tool for Cross-Sectional Studies (AXIS).
1. Which of these is best validated and the most widely used?
2. Should there be a field-specific preference for either of these (for instance, medicine vs nursing vs psychology)?
I am currently writing a proposal for a pre:post test where schoolchildren will be participating in an open day showcasing diversity in nursing roles. The faculty will be 50/50 male female hoping To attract more young men into nursing. I will primarily measure if the open day has changed the likelihood of choosing nursing as a career and also specifically look at the amount of males say the would apply to nursing.
any advice on questionnaire design and data analysis would be appreciate.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will likely have a transformative impact on multiple dimensions of nursing education and on nursing more broadly. Nurse educators should prepare to respond quickly.
for nurses and nurse educators, How will COVID-19 reshape nursing education globally?
Due to crisis of Covid 19 students have to disconnect from their education system and for preparing nurses its must to relate the theory with skill labs and then hands on practice is required to teach nursing skills.Right now we are emphasizing on online education but expertise of skills will be required online simulation programs and digital labs.So I need to learn more about physical and emotional effects of students and teachers to enhance learning process and continuing growth of nursing career.
I want to measure the critical thinking skills of nursing students following inquiry classes versus those following traditional-lecture based approach.
Can somebody suggest a test other than the CCTST; if Not how can i have the CCTST?
Please I need a questionnaire to measure one of my research questions for my thesis.
My study is a descriptive study to analyze to what extent do nurse educators employ inquiry based learning, and i am focusing on the relation between inquiry based learning on the development of students critical thinking.
The population of the study are nurse educators this is why i need a specific questionnaire for them so they can evaluate if their teaching method is enhancing their students critical thinking.
