Using SWOT analysis, the “Strength” would be to motivate and engage registered nurses who are supportive of the management and leadership of the nurse managers.

Nursing education emphasizes the value of critical thinking skills to ensure that nursing professionals achieve success in their career. Critical thinking and reflection require nurses to question the underlying assumptions, facts, and arguments in order to develop new knowledge and skills. However, as MacDonalds-Wicks and Levet-Joness (2012) indicate, today’s learning and teaching methods do not support the development of high-level clinical thinking skills. Additionally, many educators often find difficulties incorporating technology in their teaching approaches and in the classroom. For the educators to overcome the challenges of using technology, they should become competent in different software applications and equipment.

Emotion is fundamental to nursing and midwifery practice consequently, EI is considered as an important skill for nurses. It can affect the quality of their work including clinical decision-making, critical thinking, implementation of nursing care plan, communication and knowledge use in practice. Teaching staff in nursing schools should know that nursing students have different levels of emotional maturity that help them to overcome a lot of stress present in this profession. They should also consider that the way to deal with emotions is
They also emphasizes health promotion and disease prevention through counselling, health-behaviour education and the development of self-care abilities. Extensive knowledge and expertise in her area of specialization enable her to take leadership both in her clinical practice and in her relations with nursing colleagues and other professionals. In addition, they contributes to educating future NPs, developing research and implementing clinical innovations. (OIIQ, 2010 Addendum; p. 9) Comments: The problem statements agreed with the title and seemed to be of educational significance. The problem was clearly visible to the average reader, and it required several readings to establish why the researchers felt this study needed to be done.
Curriculum change involves transforming or changing knowledge and experience to enable learners to have mastery of learning experiences for the learners’ and the society’s well-being. Curriculum changes in nursing education involves reviewing the existing curriculum to

Hospital wards have been the traditional clinical placement setting for nursing students. Newton, Jolly, Ockerby and Cross (2010) purports that practice in the clinical setting is a requirement to ensure fitness to practice as a nurse. From an educational view, clinical placement is the avenue where skills, knowledge and attitudes developed in the theoretical part of the curriculum are applied, developed and incorporated. Wang, Shang and Jin (2005) asserts that after visiting the clinical area for a week, nursing students begin to dislike the nursing profession however Holsem (2010) stated that the development of confidence during clinical experiences places emphasis on the openness about expectation, time of reflection and been welcome and appreciated. If these priorities are put it place nursing students clinical experience will be effective as they look forward to gain additional knowledge and skills to tackle the world of work but if this knowledge and skills are not garnered through effective clinical experience nursing students will fail to gain confidence and high levels of competency to venture into the world of
