The level of burnout can be measured by using a scale of Burnout. One such published scale's citation -
Malach-Pines, A. (2005). The burnout measure, short version. International Journal of Stress Management, 12(1), 78.
First, you might also need a scale such as DASS to measure the level of Anxiety and Stress of leaders. Then, identify the sample from which you collected the data who have high anxiety and stress. After that, you can use the Burnout Inventory on this sample only.

For example, if the clinical competence of nurses to patient care increaes,  the level of job stress will be reduce? and why?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Behrooz Rezaei
I totally agree with all previous comments. In my opinion, the competency factor is very important in improving performance, and it may help, but this is not enough to relieve or tension or stress among nurses, for example midwives, and their skills and talents will increase their confidence and improve their performance, but their number is low compared to the large number of patients, in addition to dealing with a pregnant woman during labor, it requires a long time of follow-up and attention during and after childbirth, there is difficulty in dealing with many patients during childbirth especially in primigravida and young age patients, as well as a lack of resources, and ill-treatment between the patient’s family and nurses or between the nurses and other health team all these factors increase the stress of nurses during their job

Middle managers’ found to influence strategy development and implementation through their upward and downward strategic activities (influence). They use different influence tactics such as Pressure and Upward Appeals. Yukl and Falbe (1990) found that “Direction of influence had a stronger effect on influence objectives than on influence tactics”. Based on what has been stated by Yukl and Falbe, which the dependent variable is and which is the independent variable in this case? Dose middle managers behavior through their upward and downward influence activities drives their selection of the influence tactics or is it the influence tactics that moderate their behavior? 
Yukl, G., & Falbe, C. M. (1990). Influence tactics and objectives in upward, downward, and lateral influence attempts. Journal of applied psychology, 75(2), 132.
Relevant answer
Answer
I was a Merchandise Manager for Barnes & Noble. I had two Assistant Managers and a General Manager above me. I was also left alone to manage the store, mostly closings. In attempts at influencing those above me, it depended upon the person. When I was in charge, I used more authoritative and cooperative tactics. My behavior changed when with fellow managers into a more cooperative and goal focused tactic. So, I believe that influential tactics were chosen to moderate behavior. IV - influential tactic selection, DV - level of moderation of behavior.

In some countries ( Malaysia for instance) , nurses are not mandated by law to report child maltreatment ( more of a ethical obligation). I suspect it is not just skill -knowledge in recognizing such cases, but other barriers...any idea what some of it be?

Answer
Segaran,
It is a multifactorial issue.. Here are the most commonly expressed concerns (thoughts and feelings) that I have personally experienced over the past 3 1/2 decades of nursing.
1. Will anyone believe me?
2. Will I be supported or punished by my employer?
3. Will I be targeted for retribution by the family?
4. It is not my responsibility, anyway.
5. What if I'm wrong? Can I suffer legal repercussions?
6. Someone else will step up, so I don't have too.
7. What will my spouse say if I lose my employment?
8. How will I take care of my family?
Without a strong culture of safety, it is easy to see the personal risks associated with standing up.
Although I do not offer a reference list, I hope my shared thoughts and experiences help.

I am planning to modify the item choices on few questions in the presentation of findings – for easier interpretation of results.

The key issues are probably these:
- Are there separate support variables used anywhere? If so, have they been the original integer in the range distributions of 0-6 or somehow modified? Eg. Categorized?
- Is the "sum of the amounts" used as such, converted to one of the variable conversion or categorized?
The problem is that the distribution in terms of individual donors is a difficult shape: zero and six is often the case where  there is a big spike. Distributions on the neighbor or the "other" obtained are such that zero is a big spike and the other values are very rare. Can those assigned to groups? Do you have experience?

“Social desirability” is the defensive tendency of individuals to portray themselves in keeping with perceived cultural norms, whereas “social approval” is the need to obtain a positive response in a testing situation. They are systematic errors in self-reports, how can we estimate their effect?
Relevant answer
Answer
The most common approach for controlling social desirability in questionnaires is through the use of lie scales. However, lie scales in themselves have validity problems. Today, many researchers believe that what lie scales measure is not the tendencies to fake good on questionnaires, but a general facet of personality.
Therefore, it is not quite certain what we are doing when controlling for lie scale scores.

As far as the nursing practice in India is concerned, Non-pharmacological interventions are in the scope of practice of nursing.
For example, here in India there are intervention studies 
1. cabbage leaves for mastitis
2. Banana leaf dressing (BLD) and Boiled potato peel dressing (BPPD) for partial thickness burn wounds
3. Application of Jasmine Flowers to suppress puerperal lactation to treat Breast engorgement 
4. Effectiveness of Music therapy in pain relief

Is very expensive to publish! In Brasil, not always the our institutions or universitys help us pay fees for submissions, publications. And paying fees in dollars or euro is impossível for us!
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Eduardo - you are spoilt for choice really in nursing with established and reputable journals that do not charge (unless you opt for the voluntary open access charges). Some of these journals have the advantage of being very broad in their scope. For instance, Journal of Advanced Nursing, Journal of Clinical Nursing, International Journal of Nursing Studies etc. If say your study focused on less clinical disciplines, such as nursing education, then journals such as Nurse Education Today would fit the bill well - and there are many research-specific journals that do the same - such as Nurse researcher. The main thing to consider when considering submitting manuscripts to any established (non-fee paying) journal is that the competition and quality is often higher than elsewhere so, to ensure a relative degree of success, your manuscript would have to be well written and crafted (in English), within the scope of the journal, written according to house-style instructions, good quality and rigorous study methodology - and a degree of creativity and originality in the findings.

each domains is rated on scale 0-2 with their descriptions, at the end of the assessment the score is totalled and compared with the performance level.
performance level includes: ESTABLISHED COMPETENT, BEGINING COMPETENT AND NOT YET COMPETENT.

HI, 
Theoretical speaking,,yes frequent round will reduce the fall rate. but I would suggest to do a thorough assessment for each admission for the disorientation level, accordingly the higher disoriented individuals should be placed in a bed or room close to nursing station. if in_camera allowed in the setting, this will provide continous monitoring. there is also an alarm instrument which can be attached to the patients gown from one side and to the bed in the other side, the movement of the patient will lead to alarm sound. 
Therefore, there are many interventions better than hourly round.

many institutions are hiring nurses to coordinate research projects .. other institution think that should be part of their responsibilities and commitment to improve quality of patients' care based on research evidence .. which approach is more practical and efficient?  
Relevant answer
Answer
As an Associate Nurse Executive of Education and Research who is funded (research) as well as someone who has worked in Academia, my first and foremost response is--IT DEPENDS. 
If you have a research strong center, that has strong funding, hiring research nurses who are certified research coordinators is your best use of resources.  Nurses who are certified RCs allows the PI to delegate multiple responsibilities and the RNs are focused on the study (ies) and the multiple duties that are needed to run the study (ies).
If you have a new research program or are only looking at research from an internal prospective (ie Quality Improvement projects), having nurses being integral partners in Evidence Based Care Councils/Committees, allowing RNs time to conduct research or Quality Improvement projects, and reinforcing that research/evidence based practice is a part of their daily job is also an effective as well as efficient use of resources.
All academic institutions should be teaching the practical aspects of Evidence Based Practice. How each institution implements it is unique.

Just do it! The best way to learn about research and appreciate it is just to jump in and do it. 
One thing that has been done for a while in my neck of the woods is the Research Challenge. It is a small grant $5000, that is specifically for nursing and allied health to conduct a research study.  It is a team's grant. Potential teams submit first a letter of intent, they are then matched with a research mentor that is committed to help the team, and the teams must attend a series of compulsory and optional workshops on literature search, grant proposal development, ethics etc. before submitting the final proposal. I believe this year there is funds to support 18 teams at our facility. It is quite amazing what past recipients have accomplished with these small grants. they have turned into ongoing research, larger projects, masters thesis, and organization wide QI projects. Here is the website for this current year's competition. Feel free to contact the team at VCHRI for more information. I have found them to be incredibly supportive.

changes in performance of nurses due to shift time
Relevant answer
Answer
If looking for a good question - the impact of napping breaks needs more research, especially for across shifts. With the 12-hour shift being fairly consistent in US hospitals, both day and night nurses are dealing with sleep deprivation (for example, day shift nurses are often getting up exactly at the time that they should be in their deepest sleep cycle). The information about the benefits of organizations that have 'napping' policies is primarily anecdotal. Need to know if this can really be honored across an organization - what are the supports that need to be in place, such as staffing to cover during this type of break, and what are the measurable impacts of napping - decreased errors, etc. - over an extended (year+) implementation of the practice.

An interesting question here - and good information from Peter. I suppose that it would be very difficult though to get an accurate number for the whole of Africa. The multiple regions will have different standards and criteria for doctoral qualifications - as well as different means of measuring and recording them. There would, I would imagine, be large differences between various countries within Africa (although South Africa as Peter has highlighted would be a good 'litmus test'). Even if you take the US and Canada - according to 'thetruthaboutnursing.org' - nearly 13% of US nurses (404,000) and 2.5% (6,300) of Canadian RNs and have earned masters or doctoral degrees. In the U.S. 28,000 hold doctoral degrees. That's a huge difference between those two countries alone as to percentages of nurses who posses higher degrees.

Resilience is considered to be necessary for coping in moments of stress. Some Nursing students who undergo stress may quit the course programme, however, others remain. What are the characteristics of resilience that retain students to continue the nursing programme?
Relevant answer
Dear Carmen,
It is a common misconception that resilient people experience no negative emotions or thoughts and display optimism in all situations. Resilient people effectively balance negative emotions with positive ones, utmost, they adopt an inner attitude towards the experience e.g. in the form of self-transcendens in devastating situations where no other options are available.  Resilience is considered to comprise:
-The ability to make realistic plans and being capable of taking the steps necessary to follow through with them
-A positive self-concept and confidence in one’s strengths and abilities
-Communication and problem-solving skills
-The ability to manage strong impulses and feelings
As a student it helps if you consider your choise of profession as the "only thing" that makes you really happy.
In our research we discuss moral resilience and apply Viktor Frankl's existential philosophy as a link between moral distress, moral sensitivity, and moral resilience.

I think if the values were ranged from 3-15 it is not ordinal
especially when the sample is large (depending on the theory of the central limit). You can apply the Reliability coefficient Alpha to see the internal consistency of the Items and Split-half can be used to measure the stability.

Today, life can be sustained indefinitely by the use of machinery and intubations. As medical expertise and technology continue to spread, moral, ethical and legal issues arise.
Relevant answer
Answer
Euthanasia is illegal in the US but Assisted suicide or Physician aid in dying (PAD), is legal in the states of Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Vermont. While machinery and intubations can prolong life, they also can be legally removed to ensure death with dignity. Even feeding tubes can be removed legally. Often issues occur when the patient does not have a living will or advanced directives and the family members do not agree on what should be done. It is often difficult to see a loved one in the persistent unresponsive state. It is also difficult to make the decision that this loved one should be taken off machinery or tube feedings, thus causing their death. The Terri Schiavo case is an example of the difficulties families face.

Have you heard of situations where there are self (or relative-managed) homes that would cater for people who need care? In other words, there seems to be very few alternatives to nursing homes. There is also the case that there are people who may need to receive more than home care and may wish to share homes with others, but not within an institutional setting.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Alex,
In the USA, New York State has something called comfort care homes. They are terrific alternative for many people who may not have the resources to die in their own home but prefer a home like setting. The homes are non-profit and rely heavily on volunteers and philanthropic support. Patients are eligible if they have an estimated prognosis of 3 months or less.
Sally
Here is the link and description.
"The Homes for the Dying (Comfort Care Homes) all work on the same model—caring for two people at a time with the help of volunteers and nurses, providing care at no cost to patient or family. A Hospice nursing agency supports the care with nursing, social work, chaplain, and aide visits. Each Home for the Dying acts independently, choosing from the list of referred patients based on their own assessment of who has the greatest need of their help. When a home is interested in offering a bed to someone, the nurse manager of the house will come out to interview the person, bringing pictures of the house to help the person understand what the house might be like. Declining the offer of a bed does not mean that in the future a bed might not be available—-usually when the next bed becomes available; the person would be given another chance to go there."

Hello Olyuyinka,
Indeed an excellent question, and one that surfaces continually in the literature and again in my our work as a phenomenologists. Drawn from my own experience and that of students I have supervised, focus groups (in addition to observational data) can be used as a compliment to in-depth interviews. This form of data collection can illuminate further understanding into the phenomena of interest, thus providing more robust forms of data for analysis. Additionally, focus group interviews may potentially produce a different form of data, in terms of it being obtained collectively from multiple participants, with focus group questions drawn from initial interviews with participants. This often allows the researcher the opportunity to dwell more deeply with the data in particular areas of interest, thus more fully embodying the phenomena of interest.

I am cautious about using the Lasater clinical judgment rubric to asses clinical performance. While it has some established reliability, at least one study demonstrated challenges with inter-rater reliability. The instrument does not have well established validity and the author of the clinical judgment model (Tanner, 2006) which is what Lasater's rubric is designed to assess, has expressed concerns regarding content validity of the rubric. Moreover, Lasater's rubric was designed to be used in the simulation environment and is being generalized for use in the clinical environment. Finally there are other performance behaviors that support clinical judgment that must be assessed. Clinical assessment should also address performance behaviors described in the QSEN competencies.
