In addition, the lack of listening skills prevents me from being a good listener during team communication, which is regarded as a key characteristic of an effective

Toolbox of teaching strategies

significant innovations in health-care education. 7 In nursing education, nursing students have to face the practice–education gap. PBL is identified as an approach to bridge and eliminate that gap by teaching and coaching nursing students to apply the theory to clinical practice. 8 PBL gives students a reduced-risk opportunity to learn clinical skills without directly contacting the patients. Technologies can be used in PBL to introduce cases and propose problems. When in PBL classes for the fourth year nursing students, students organize and deliver their ideas or

A literature review of research exploring the experiences of overseas nurses in the United Kingdom (2002–2017)

inclusion and exclusion criteria were developed. Only articles published within the past 16 years were included due to the rapid changes in the innovation of medical technologies and policies. 17 To ensure an analysis of current experiences of overseas nurses working in the UK, the searches were confined to articles published in recent years. Importantly, there was a rapid increase in the number of the UK overseas nurses from European countries and other countries in the late 1990s and earlier years of this decade. 20 This trend lasted for a long time, until 2002.
