- J Nurses Staff Dev 2013 Jan; 29(1):19-23.
Rubrics are commonly used in academic settings but have not been widely adapted for nursing professional development. Hurdles for the implementation of rubrics in the clinical setting should be noted. However, the benefits for rubrics in replacing the more commonly seen skills checklist should motivate nursing professional development specialists in overcoming these challenges.

- A Cross-Sectional Study Examining Factors Related to Critical Thinking in Nursing. [JOURNAL ARTICLE]
- J Nurses Staff Dev 2013 Jan; 29(1):8-15.
The purpose of this study was to examine critical thinking skills among registered nurses who work in a military hospital. Sixty-five nurses were administered the Health Sciences Reasoning Test to obtain scores in inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning, interpretation, analysis, and evaluation skills. Results showed no significant association between critical thinking skills and years of experience; however, differences were identified among racial/ethnic groups. It is hoped that findings from this study create a platform for dialogue among staff development nurses who are best situated to develop strategies that address these issues.

Adverse patient events related to preventable errors while hospitalized resulted in need for interventions to improve outcomes. One identified error is the lack of symptom recognition during patient deterioration. Pediatric patients' symptoms during deterioration vary from their adult counterparts and often go unrecognized. A Pediatric Crisis Recognition and Management course was designed to assist the novice pediatric nurse to recognize and respond appropriately through the use of high-fidelity simulation enhancing their clinical skills and improving patient outcomes during a crisis.
