Spirituality in Nursing Practice: The Basics and Beyond


Features: Spirituality in Nursing Practice The Basics and Beyond
By (author): Dr. Doreen A. Westera RN MscN MEd

Written as a practical resource to teach nurses and nursing students, this text explores how to best address spiritual assessment and care. Spirituality–the search for meaning in life and connection to others–remains relevant to all patient interactions, and is an essential component for nurses to integrate into their everyday practice. Using a multicultural and client-centered approach, chapters explore the concept of spirituality and its relationship with religion and health to directly place it into a nursing context. Reflection questions throughout the text encourage readers to analyze their own experiences with spirituality within both professional and personal contexts and affirm how a nurse’s own spirituality can influence her or his practice.

Practical exercises illustrate the importance of spirituality in nursing and provide tools and means to incorporate spirituality into clinical practice. Chapters use a flexible approach that can be adapted to a variety of contexts in nursing education and practice throughout the world, applicable to self-study, traditional courses, and online programs. The text contains a wealth of pedagogical features, including case studies, discussion questions, a comprehensive bibliography, and is accompanied by an extensive instructor’s manual that provides additional direction for discussion and testing. Thirteen videos, developed by the author and available online, provide the perspectives of nursing and health care professionals, clients, and families to illustrate the main points of the text.

Key Features:

  • Delivers a wealth of practical tools for incorporating spirituality into nursing
  • Useful for self-study, on-campus courses, and online programs
  • Contains a variety of pedagogical features, including discussion questions, reflective exercises, case studies, along with an instructor’s manual

Designing and Teaching Online Courses in Nursing


By (author): Dr. Sally Kennedy PhD APRN FNP CNE

Despite astronomical growth in the number of online nursing programs currently available, little support is provided for faculty on how to teach in this environment. While most assume that the knowledge and skills required for classroom teaching are readily translatable to teaching online, significant differences exist. Characteristics unique to the online environment promote reflection and engagement with the content in a deep and meaningful way that factors in adult students’ strengths as self-directed, motivated, and goal-driven learners. This resource provides step-by-step instructions for RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing, master’s, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and PhD faculty on how to teach online effectively, engage students, and foster success for both student and teacher.

Designing and Teaching Online Courses in Nursing offers practical information on every aspect of teaching an online course. Foundational educational theories and concepts, including new insights from cognitive psychology, are explained and linked in such a way that operationalizing them during course design makes good sense. The core sections of the text focus on online course design, including drafting course objectives and a syllabus and crafting discussion questions or cases. Key to teaching an online course is understanding and being comfortable with facilitation strategies to maintain a balance between being present in the course and not getting in the way of learning. Worksheets with guiding questions, discussion tracking tools, and other instructor resources will assist readers in developing the best approach for designing and teaching a specific online course.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Provides online worksheets to guide each step of the process of designing and teaching a course online
  • Includes best practices in online education and the latest research
  • Features the outcomes-based approach of Wiggins and McTighe, reconceptualized for online course development
  • Recaps key points in Take-Away summaries at the end of each chapter

Discussions of each model provide examples of practical application so readers can employ these organizing frameworks. This is the only book to apply these models to quality improvement projects, particularly those in DNP programs and clinical agencies.

For every conceptual model, diagrams, information boxes, and other visual elements clarify and reinforce information. Each chapter features applications of the conceptual models to a wide variety of examples, including nursing practice assessment and an intervention, a literature review and descriptive qualitative, instrument development, correlational, experimental, and mixed-method studies. Other valuable features include faculty templates for practice, quality improvement, and research methodologies for each conceptual model, along with extensive references.

Key Features:

Research for Advanced Practice Nurses, Third Edition: From Evidence to Practice


The third edition of this award-winning text delivers the full treasury of tools that graduate nursing students and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) need to translate clinical research into practice. In the current health care landscape, APRNs are challenged to provide patient-centered care that is effective, safe, efficient, equitable, and evidence based. Building knowledge and skills in evidence-based practice (EBP) is imperative to successfully meet this challenge and improve patient outcomes.

The text describes essential ways to implement EBP in clinical practice, including how to search for and evaluate various forms of evidence, design questionnaires and data-collection forms, and analyze qualitative and quantitative data. The authors offer guidelines for evaluating research articles and a variety of EBP activities and protocols that show how to integrate EBP into multiple clinical settings suitable for all APRN areas of practice. Step-by-step instruction walks readers through the process of finding relevant evidence, appraising evidence, and translating evidence into practice to improve patient care and outcomes. The authors continue the great work of Magdalena Mateo, who created the earlier editions upon which this revision is based.

NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION:

  • Expands information about practice scholarship
  • Provides new strategies for program evaluation
  • Describes frameworks for implementation science and EBP
  • Offers practical steps and tools for seeking, appraising, and applying evidence into practice

KEY FEATURES:

  • Integrates EBP concepts related to patient care
  • Identifies the requisite knowledge and skills for practice scholarship
  • Describes practical strategies and tools for seeking and appraising evidence and applying it in practice
  • Integrates clinically relevant examples that highlight the application of evidence into practice to improve outcomes
