This was a big moment for me because I never knew that what I was doing as an RA could be/lead to a professional job that is so oriented around helping others and being involved in the college lifestyle. I absolutely love being an RA and working with students and being a leader to them. I also truly love getting to work with others who have the same passion and drive that I do within this job. I believe that STARS is something that can help connect me with others in the realms of student affairs. I love getting to work with the people here at UNI, but I also want to learn more from others who may have completely different experiences.

A dynamic strategy for teaching students the skills to think critically is the concept map (a cognitive tool that encourages learners to process information deeply in order to understand study material). This study explores the development of critical thinking among nursing students in a required pathophysiology and pharmacology course during the first year of a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in response to concept mapping as an interventional strategy, using the Health Education Systems, Incorporated critical thinking test. (Facione, 2013) Students in the concept mapping group performed much better on the Health Education Systems, Incorporated than students in the control group. It is recommended that deans, program directors, and nursing faculties evaluate their curricula to integrate concept map teaching strategies in courses in order to develop critical thinking abilities in their students. Critical thinking is a complex reasoning process largely defined as the use of purposeful, shrewd judgment that involves the development and effective exploitation of multiple dimensions of cognition to interpret and analyze a situation and arrive at and act on a suitable conclusion or solution (Facione, 2013).
Evaluation can take many forms and helps promote quality in education practice (Hughes and Quinn, 2013); it enables nurse educators to ascertain whether their teaching is having a positive impact on patients learning and how (if anything) the steps nurses need to do to improve their evidence-based practice teachings (Ramsden, 2003). As a result, monitoring and evaluating can provide information concerning; the need for modifying the programs, process of implementation and overall program outcomes. This can help support the relevance of the educational pilot program for; empowerment, responsibilities of a nurse educator, leadership, and future research. The consistent use of the assessment of core competencies and questionnaires in nursing education will facilitate the ability to compare nurse educator competencies and the performance of inmates with mental
The current phase 4 has started in 2012 and still ongoing. The first phase is identifying the six QSEN competencies; the other 2 phases is developing, testing, and disseminating teach strategies in 15 schools of nursing and developed & evaluated innovative methods of student learning assessment and advancement of faculty expertise. The goals of QSEN is "to address the challenge of preparing future nurses with the knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSA) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems in which they work (Health Information Technology (HITS) for Nursing Faculty: QSEN: Quality and Safety Competencies, 2018)." The nursing student has to be educated with both safety and quality. They need to have the knowledge and skills to improve both the safety and quality skills - that they will learn in nursing school.
Literature Review The purpose of this literature review is to garner information about nursing student’s perception of nursing and identify factors influencing readiness for the profession. Perception as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary (2010) is characterized by ones awareness and understanding of sensory information attained through interaction between past experiences and one’s own culture and interpretation of the perceived. Nursing students’ perception of nursing has been influenced greatly by various factors and these factors initiate readiness for the nursing profession.

I committed to and grew from Upward Bound because of the love, support and mentor Ms. Amber and Ms. Shesheena shared. Aside from their vast experiences and professionalism, Ms. Amber and Ms. Shesheena’s willingness to provide Upward Bound’s students with an experience beyond the traditional limits of their offices, constant attention and caring far exceeded the scope of their responsibilities. Words cannot express my gratitude for having these two counselors there to help me with high school worries, life crises, college application process, and now how to maintain my college
I am lucky to have work with such a diverse group of people who treated me as a fellow worker rather than “just a student”. My placement helped my realize the value of occupational therapy and made me realize how much I appreciate OT practice. I learned to love occupational therapy because we help maximize the independence of a client to enhance their quality of life. Lyndhurst was able to provide many learning experiences for me to help prepare me for the working world. I am very excited to apply my new skills and hopefully become a great clinician just like my
My experiences helping immigrant’s students was very rewarding for me because I could connect with the students and understand what they were going through. I will definitely continue to help as a peer tutor for next semester and I will recommend some of my friends to volunteer there too. Also I hope that my contributions to them, helped them achieve their goals and to be
I was gratified when Lynn noticed that I endeavored to involve the class and help them understand that my subject and its content was important to us all. Based on the positive feedback from classmates, I know that my efforts to ensure my voice was loud and clear when speaking and that my words were articulate and easily understood, were successful. In retrospect I recognize that I could have improved on some of the content. If I were to do this presentation again I would focus on the complications that could occur if a patient’s UTI went unnoticed or was left untreated. My peers commented that additional visual aids such as diagrams or photos would have been educational and one student said additional activities would have been helpful.
