The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Health Information Technology Act (2009) in America had recommended that electronic health records (EHRs) should be fully adopted by 2014. This has urged educational institutions to prepare healthcare professionals to be competent in using electronic health records (EHRs) while they are in schools. To equip nursing students with competency in using EHRs, an electronic health record for nursing education (EHRNE) has been developed and integrated it into nursing curricula. The purposes of the study were to investigate the factors influencing nursing students' acceptance of the EHRs in nursing education using the extended Technology Acceptance Model with self-efficacy as a conceptual framework. The study is a descriptive study design using self-reported questionnaires with 212 student participants. The IBM SPSS and AMOS 22.0 were used to analyze the data. The results showed that attitude toward using the EHRNE was the most influential factor on students' acceptance. The preliminary findings suggested that to enhance the students' acceptance of the EHRNE, cultivation of a positive attitude toward using this EHR as well as increasing the perceived usefulness is very important. Also, the study's framework could be used in guiding learning health informatics and be applied to nursing students.

[Audio capture in the hybrid system of nursing training: contribution to the acquisition of knowledge for the development of professional skills].
Rech Soins Infirm. 2015 Dec;(123):108-16
Authors: Hoyelle-Pierre S, Villemonteix F
This article deals with the results of a probing study in the framework of the education and technology master of research in educational science of the university of Cergy-Pontoise. This study focuses on the use of audio capture by first year nursing students in the development of their knowledge and therefore in the development of their professional skills. By using the model of the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT), the results of this study have helped to identify the levers (easy-to-use digital resources, computer skilled learners, multiplicity of computer equipment of the learners) and bridles (the relative gain when using this resource, the lack of human interaction, a resource which is time consuming) in the use of audio capture. A more extensive study could focus on these bridles in order to promote the use of audio capture by learners in the hybrid system of nursing training.

Evaluating the effect of a clicker in an information literacy course for college nursing students in Taiwan.
Comput Inform Nurs. 2015 Mar;33(3):115-21
Authors: Lin KY
In this technology era, information literacy is a global imperative. This is true for nursing students as well because they will have to help patients through operating computerized equipment. The key foundation of learning is concentration. The primary objectiveof this research was to explore the effect of clickers on nursing college students' concentration. The research involved 51 student volunteers and was quasi-experimental, with both a pretest and a posttest design. Student concentration was measured by using Student Concentration Scale in a Classroom-Learning Environment. The results showed that students' learning concentration improved, an outcome that could support integrating clickers into classroom teaching activities, and students' concentration level was better after clickers were used in the teaching process as a whole. Items under the "Concentration Capacity and Concentration Consciousness" category reached a significant level. Based on the analysis of the results, suggestions have been made for teaching and future research.

Turning electronic health record data into meaningful information using SQL and nursing informatics.
Comput Inform Nurs. 2014 Aug;32(8):366-77
Authors: Moerbe M, Kelemen A
The combination of nursing informatics knowledge with SQL code writing in an electronic health record is a powerful partnership to obtain meaningful information and improve healthcare. The purpose of this project is to use SQL and nursing informatics to identify the underpinnings and scope of present-on-patient-admission pressure ulcer documentation incongruence within the inpatient medical-surgical unit of a rural hospital. Project results reveal a 76% incidence rate of incongruent nurse and physician documentation of pressure ulcers as present on admission. However, the scope of such incongruence affects only 3% for the inpatient population. The high incidence rate of nurse-documented present-on-admission pressure ulcers without a physician diagnoses indicates a potential for lost rural hospital reimbursement and risk to patient care.

Implementing an e-Assessment of Professional Practice.
Br J Nurs. 2015 Nov 26-Dec 9;24(21):1068, 1070-3
Authors: Morgan P, Dyer C
The ability to accurately document undergraduate student nurses' development while in the clinical area is a requirement of the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Owing to a number of strategic and pragmatic drivers, the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Southampton has developed and implemented an e-Assessment of Professional Practice (eAoPP). This platform enables the student, mentor and academic staff to access the portfolio from any internet enabled device and has been rolled out in phases over 2 years to more than 5000 students and mentors. The key factors underpinning the success of the project are presented along with an audit and preliminary analysis of support service activity provided during the roll out to 380 students in January 2015 across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Plans for future development, including employability and roll out to other student groups are discussed.

Quantifying care coordination using natural language processing and domain-specific ontology.
J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2015 Apr;22(e1):e93-103
Authors: Popejoy LL, Khalilia MA, Popescu M, Galambos C, Lyons V, Rantz M, Hicks L, Stetzer F
OBJECTIVE: This research identifies specific care coordination activities used by Aging in Place (AIP) nurse care coordinators and home healthcare (HHC) nurses when coordinating care for older community-dwelling adults and suggests a method to quantify care coordination.
METHODS: A care coordination ontology was built based on activities extracted from 11,038 notes labeled with the Omaha Case management category. From the parsed narrative notes of every patient, we mapped the extracted activities to the ontology, from which we computed problem profiles and quantified care coordination for all patients.
RESULTS: We compared two groups of patients: AIP who received enhanced care coordination (n=217) and HHC who received traditional care (n=691) using 128,135 narratives notes. Patients were tracked from the time they were admitted to AIP or HHC until they were discharged. We found that patients in AIP received a higher dose of care coordination than HHC in most Omaha problems, with larger doses being given in AIP than in HHC in all four Omaha categories.
CONCLUSIONS: 'Communicate' and 'manage' activities are widely used in care coordination. This confirmed the expert hypothesis that nurse care coordinators spent most of their time communicating about their patients and managing problems. Overall, nurses performed care coordination in both AIP and HHC, but the aggregated dose across Omaha problems and categories is larger in AIP.

Authors: Seckman CA
Internet-based learning environments are a popular instructional delivery method that provides flexibility, easy access, convenience, and self-directed learning. There is concern that Internet-based learning creates a loss of community and lacks the power to fully engage the student, leading to negative learning outcomes. This descriptive, correlational study evaluated the relationship among a perceived sense of community, cognitive engagement, and learner outcomes among undergraduate nursing students enrolled in an Internet-based learning course. A convenience sample of 96 undergraduate nursing students enrolled in an online health informatics course participated in this study. Findings indicated a moderate sense of community and a positive relationship between student engagement and learning outcomes. A variety of group activities such as wikis, blogs, and discussion board were helpful in promoting a sense of community, but students emphasized a desire for more faculty feedback and interaction. Nursing is a collaborative profession where community building is a critical skill; therefore, innovative teaching/learning techniques that promote a sense of belonging and community are needed to improve learning outcomes, prepare students to provide quality patient care, and interact with an interprofessional team.
