Highlights

At present, there are many types of scales used in the quantitative research on the occupational identity of nursing students, but the standardized scale has not yet been formed. At the same time, the scale has the problem of using regular. This makes the literature analysis is not easy to compare horizontally and is not conducive to the analysis of large statistics. Therefore, this study introduces and compares the commonly used assessment tools of professional identity of nursing students in China.

Abstract

This paper introduced the concept of nursing students’ professional identity and described the development process. At the same time this paper introduced the assessment content, applicable population and scoring methods. Reliability and validity of the scales and the application status of commonly used assessment tools of professional identity of nursing students were introduced. This study aims to provide guidance for clinical staff and nursing educators to select targeted professional identity assessment tools for nursing students.

Highlights

In this study, meta-analysis was used to comprehensively analyze the effect of narrative education in nursing students. The results show that narrative teaching method can effectively improve the nursing students' theoretical and operational performance and humanistic care ability, as well as their level of empathy, so as to provide positive influence for nursing students to enter the clinical nursing industry in the future.

Abstract

Objective: To analyze and summarize the application effect of narrative teaching method in nursing teaching, so as to provide empirical support for the application of narrative teaching method in nursing education. Methods: In this study, Meta analysis was used to search the databases of CNKI, Wanfang, VIP, Cochrane Library, PubMed, Web of Science and Science Direct. The retrieval time was from October 2019. Results: A total of 14 randomized controlled trial conclusions were included. The results showed that the application of narrative nursing teaching method could improve the theoretical knowledge [SMD = 1.34, 95%CI 0.70-1.97, P < 0.01], the mastery of operational skills [SMD = 1.30, 95%CI 0.65-1.96, P < 0.01], the humanistic care ability [SMD = 0.98, 95%CI 0.26-1.69, P < 0.01], and the empathy level [SMD = 6.13, 95%CI 5.15-7.11, P < 0.01]. Conclusion: The application of narrative nursing teaching method can improve the required ability of nursing students and has a good application effect. More high-quality RCT studies are needed in the future for further research.

Highlights

This article used the theoretical knowledge of Traditional Chinese medicine combined with traditional Chinese medicine ingredients to treat phlebitis, and introduced hand movement is the movement and breathing of breath to stimulate the whole human vein.

Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study is to observe the clinical effect of hand exercise combined with jinhuang ointment on the prevention of phlebitis due to cinobufagin. Methods: A total of 90 cancer patients who have been receiving intravenous (IV) infusion of cinobufagin from May 2018 to June 2019 in the oncology department of our hospital were selected. They were then divided into three groups in a random manner, which include 30 cases in the control group, 30 cases in the jinhuang ointment group, and 30 cases in the group of hand exercise combined with jinhuang ointment. The control group had a routine care before cinobufagin was infused from the first day of hospitalization. During the routine care mentioned previously, the jinhuang ointment group was given locally jinhuang ointment inunction, qd, and kept for 6 hours. Hand exercises were then done on the combined group excluding jinhuang ointment application, qd, at 10min. After treatment for 1 week, the phlebitis and pain incidences on the venipuncture site were then compared between the three groups. Results: After the 1-week treatment, the incidences of grade I/II phlebitis in the control group, the jinhuang ointment group, and the group of hand exercise combined with jinhuang ointment were 53.5%, 23.3%, and 10%, respectively. The results have shown a significant decrease in the jinhuang ointment group and the combined group as in comparison with the control group (P = 0.0169, P = 0.0003). Even with the incidence of the combined group being lower than that of the jinhuang ointment group, no statistically significant difference (P = 0.1659) was found. The incidences of grade III/IV phlebitis in the control group, the jinhuang ointment group, and the group of hand exercise combined with jinhuang ointment were 23.3%, 3.3%, and 3.3%, respectively. Both the jinhuang ointment group and the combined group had significantly lower results than that of the control group (P = 0.0003, P = 0.0227). There was no difference in the results of the combined group and the jinhuang ointment group. The incidences of pain in the control group, the jinhuang ointment group, and the group of hand exercise combined with jinhuang ointment were 56.7%, 36.7%, and 20%, respectively. There was no significant difference in the results of the jinhuang ointment group and the control group (P = 0.1205); the combined group has shown a significant decrease in the incidence compared with the control group (P = 0.0035); the incidence of pain in the combined group was lower than that of the jinhuang ointment group, but without a statistical difference (P = 0.1520). Conclusion: Hand exercise together with jinhuang ointment inunction can significantly reduce the incidence of phlebitis produced by cinobufagin.

This present article was the first to explore the relationships among achievement motivation, meta-learning capacity and creativity tendencies among Chinese baccalaureate nursing students using a serial-multiple mediation model, with results highlight the meta-learning capacity mediated the relationship between achievement motivation and creativity tendencies.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this article is to investigate the relationships among achievement motivation, meta-learning capacity and creativity tendencies among Chinese baccalaureate nursing students. Design: Cross-sectional study design. Methods: A convenient sample of 445 baccalaureate nursing students were surveyed in two universities in Tianjin, China. Students completed a questionnaire that included their demographic information, Achievement Motivation Scale, Meta-Learning Capacity Questionnaire, and Creativity Tendencies Scale. Pearson correlation was performed to test the correlation among achievement motivation, meta-learning capacity and creativity tendencies. Hierarchical linear regression analyses were performed to explore the mediating role of meta-learning capacity. Results: The participants had moderate levels of achievement motivation (mean score 2.383 ± 0.240) and meta-learning capacity (mean score 1.505 ± 0.241) and a medium-high level of creativity tendency (mean score 1.841 ± 0.288). Creativity tendencies was significantly associated with both achievement motivation and meta-learning capacity (both P < 0.01). Furthermore, meta-learning capacity mediated the relationship between achievement motivation and high creativity tendencies. Conclusion: The study hypotheses were supported. Higher achievement motivation, and meta-learning capacity can increase creativity tendencies of baccalaureate nursing students, and meta-learning capacity was found to mediate the relationship between achievement motivation and creativity tendencies. Nursing educators should pay attention to the positive role of meta-learning capacity in nursing students’ learning, and make them more confident when they finish their studies.
