To analyze deeply the concept of the transpersonal caring relationship as the core of the theory of Caring Science proposed by Jean Watson. To present a historical evolution and to introduce the Transpersonal Caritas Relationship construct.</p> <p><strong>Methods.</strong> Methodological Study to support the central concept measured by the Watson Caritas patient instrument. We designed a focus group with four nursing scholars to develop the "Transpersonal Caritas Relationship" construct. We recount the history of the concept of the transpersonal caring relationship, then analyze this concept in terms of Watson's theory. We reviewed the concept with Dr. Jean Watson, presented her with the construct, and discussed our considerations.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>. This article introduces a transitional adaptation of the concept of transpersonal relationship to Caritas’ transpersonal relationship. Transpersonal Caritas Relationship is the foundation of evolved Caritas nursing, recognizing that mutual caring affects the universal field we all belong to Caritas' consciousness and action affect the energy field when the nurse relates with the other, making it possible to awaken the compassionate heart, which is the foundation of Evolved Caritas Nursing Universal love and in this way evolve to the Caritas consciousness that allows recognizing the other with loving kindness in the practice of careful. This is the proposed central concept measured in the caring approach using the Watson Caritas Patient.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion. </strong>This article introduces a transitional adaptation of the concept of transpersonal relationship to the Caritas transpersonal relationship, which is the foundation of Caritas Evolved Nursing<strong>.</strong></p> 2023-11-22T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería Determinants of Job Satisfaction among Nurses from Chilean Hospitals 2023-11-01T13:09:32-05:00 Marta Simonetti Leyla Sáez <p><strong>Objective</strong>. To measure, at the national scope, the satisfaction of Chilean nurses working in hospitals, and establish personal and institutional determinants associated with satisfaction.</p> <p><strong>Methods. </strong>Cross-sectional multicenter study, carried out in 40 public and private high-complexity hospitals in Chile. A self-administered survey was conducted with 1,632 clinical nurses from medical-surgical units. The variables of interest studied were: job satisfaction, personal determinants (sex, age, and postgraduate training), institutional organizational determinants (assignments and work environment, measured through the <em>Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index)</em>, and institutional structural determinants. Data analysis applied hierarchical logistic regression models, with three blocks of determinants, following nested models design.</p> <p><strong>Results. </strong>The study showed that 21% of the nurses is very satisfied with their job. Training opportunities and professional growth are specific work aspects with which there is a lower percentage of nurses satisfied (10% and 11.2%, respectively). Among the personal factors, male sex and age are associated positively with satisfaction (<em>p</em>&lt;0.05). Among the institutional organizational factors, a good work environment was associated with greater satisfaction (<em>p</em>&lt;0.001); the number of patients per nurse was associated marginally with satisfaction (<em>p</em>&lt;0.05). The structural factors of hospitals were not associated with satisfaction.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion. </strong>A low proportion of nurses working in the high-complexity hospitals studied are satisfied with their job. Planning of strategies must be prioritized, leading to improving the retention of nurses, reducing the number of patients per nurse, and promoting good work environments in hospitals.</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería Nursing guidelines for caregivers of children with congenital heart disease after discharge: Integrative Review 2023-11-01T18:50:04-05:00 Bruna Alves Machado Amazonas Denise Maria Guerreiro Vieira da Silva Maria de Nazaré de Souza Ribeiro <p><strong>Objective.</strong> To identify the nursing guidelines for caregivers of children with congenital heart disease (CHD) after hospital discharge.</p> <p><strong>Method</strong><strong>s</strong><strong>.</strong> This is an integrative literature review of articles published between 2016 and 2022. In order to select the studies, the controlled descriptors “Nursing Care”, “Nursing”, “Heart Defects, Congenital”, “Caregivers” and “Child” were used in four scientific databases – LILACS, SCIELO, PUBMED and BDENF.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> The current integrative literature review analyzed 11 articles from the original sample. The main nursing care issues are those related to nutrition, oral health, leisure and physical activity, care with medication and the surgical wound, as well as the need to offer support to these children’s families. The authors emphasize that nurses are present at various moments in a child’s life, including at birth, but the approach to CHD is scarce in their basic training as nurses, as well as in their professional practice, and there is a shortage of continuing education proposals for the care of children with CHD.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion.</strong> The study showed that nursing guidelines are focused on basic care and family support for these children. Lastly, this study highlighted the important role of nurses in terms of consolidating guidelines on the care needs of these children.</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería Effectiveness of Resiliency and Recovery Program on Compassion Fatigue among Nursing Officers working in selected Hospitals in India 2023-11-02T06:37:20-05:00 Betsy Sara Zacharias Sheela Upendra <p><strong>Objective.</strong> The study objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of Resiliency and Recovery Program on Compassion Fatigue level of Nursing Officer from selected hospitals of Pune City (India).</p> <p><strong>Methods. </strong>The study used a quasi-experimental approach involving single group pre-test and post-test design. 100 nursing officers, working in selected hospitals of Pune city, who were willing to participate were selected using non probability convenience sampling. The data was collected using <em>The Professional Quality of Life Scale: Compassion Satisfaction and Fatigue </em>(ProQoL) Version 5 of Stamm. The study included pre-test, resiliency and recovery program and post-test. Resiliency and Recovery Program is an intervention aiming to develop five resiliency skills or antibodies including (a) self-regulation, (b) perceptual maturation, (c) intentionality, (d) self-care and (e) connection and support.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong>&nbsp;Statistically significant difference was revealed between the pre-test and post-test score means: Compassion Satisfaction (pre-test = 28.50 to post-test = 31.0; t-18.6671, <em>p</em>&lt;0.001), Burn-out (pre-test = 35.2 to post-test = 31.7; t-15.00, <em>p</em>&lt;0.001), and Secondary Traumatic Stress (pre-test = 37.4 to post-test = 33.07; t-14.8996, <em>p</em>&lt;0.001).</p> <p><strong>Conclusion.</strong>&nbsp;Resiliency and Recovery Program had a significant impact on Compassion Fatigue, leading to an increase in Compassion Satisfaction, and a reduction in Burnout and Secondary Traumatic Stress. Inculcating Resiliency skills in nursing officers can help them in reducing compassion fatigue and thus aids in health promotion.</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería Teaching Competencies in Nursing Professors: Visions of Students and Academics 2023-11-02T07:05:03-05:00 Raúl Quintana Alonso Eva García Redondo María Miana Ortega Elena Chamorro Rebollo José Antonio Cieza García <p><strong>Objective. </strong>This work sought to know the view of Nursing professors and students about the competencies the faculty staff must have to deploy their educational function with maximum quality and efficiency.</p> <p><strong>Methods</strong>. Descriptive qualitative study through focus groups conducted with professors, students and recent Nursing career graduates from universities in Spain.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>. The importance of the proposed teaching competencies was delved into, highlighting the importance of professors knowing the context in which they teach, having the ability to self-evaluate their activity, and having adequate interpersonal communication skills, and deploy the teaching-learning process by performing proper planning, using new technologies, and knowing how to engage in teamwork. Moreover, a small discrepancy was detected in relation to disciplinary competence, which students felt was of importance, but which academics indicated is taken for granted in nursing professors; competencies directly related to the act of teaching must be enhanced.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion.</strong> Practical unanimity was found between academics and students in affirming that the competencies investigated are important for adequate development of the teaching activity in nursing professors. In all cases, the urgent need was highlighted for nursing professors to have adequate teaching training to provide their students with formation of the highest quality.</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería “I didn't know anything, but I learned over time”: The process of nurses attaining autonomy in Intensive Care Units 2023-11-02T21:02:48-05:00 Nestor Naranjo Inna Florez Edna Gómez <p><strong>Objective.</strong> Understand the social processes experienced by nursing professionals and the meanings underlying autonomy in adult Intensive Care Units in the city of Cartagena (Colombia).</p> <p><strong>Methods.</strong> A qualitative study with a grounded theory approach was conducted. Fifteen semi-structured interviews were carried out with nursing professionals, and the analysis was based on the coding technique proposed by Strauss &amp; Corbin.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong><strong>.</strong> Of the respondents, fourteen were female and one was male, with ages ranging from 23 to 57 years. Experience in intensive care units ranged from 1 to 28 years, and none had postgraduate studies. After thematic analysis, the central category was obtained from four categories: adaptation process, applicability of autonomy exercise, building autonomous competence, and limitations to the exercise of autonomy.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion.</strong> Nursing professionals achieve their autonomy through a social process, based on different stages of learning when facing the environment of the units. It is grounded in decision-making and the power to act freely. However, barriers continue to hinder it, including limitations imposed by institutions, protocol-based interventions, social status, and individual differences among professionals</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería The effect of interventional program underpinned by health belief model on awareness, attitude, and performance of nurses in preventing nosocomial infections: A randomized controlled trial study 2023-11-02T21:19:27-05:00 Mahmoud Hosseinpour Rasool Eslami Akbar Mohsen Faseleh Jahromi Zohreh Badiyepeymaiejahromi <p><strong>Objective.</strong> The present study examined the effect of an interventional program underpinned by the Health Belief Model (HBM) on nurses’ awareness, attitude, and performance in preventing nosocomial infections.</p> <p><strong>Methods.</strong> This randomized controlled trial study was performed on 60 clinical nurses in lar, Iran. Nurses were selected using the simple random sampling method and assigned to two experimental (<em>n</em>=30) and control (<em>n</em>=30) groups.

Four databases, CINAHL, Pubmed, Web of Science and Scopus, were searched from inception until October 2022. MeSH terms were: "nursing", "sensitivity and specificity", "emergency service, hospital", "nursing care". Two reviewers independently screened studies against the inclusion criteria for eligibility, extracted data and assessed study quality with the SIGN tool. Results of the included studies were summarized and described in themes for narrative analysis. The study was enrolled in the PROSPERO registry (CRD42022376941) and PRISMA guidelines were followed.</p> <p><strong>Results. </strong>The search strategy yielded 2289 records. After duplicate removal, title, abstract and full-text eligibility screening, nine systematic reviews were included in the review. A total of 35 nursing-sensitive outcomes were reported. The most described outcomes were waiting times, patient satisfaction and time to treatment. The less measured were mortality, left without being seen and physical function. Synthesizing nursing-sensitive outcomes in themes for reporting, the most measured outcomes were within the safety domain (<em>n=20</em>), followed by the clinical (<em>n=9</em>), perceptual (<em>n=5</em>) and the least explored functional domain (<em>n=1</em>).</p> <p><strong>Conclusion. </strong>Nursing sensitive outcomes research in emergency nursing practice is a conceptual challenge still in its early stage. Several nursing-sensitive outcomes were identified in this review that can evaluate the contribution of emergency department nursing care to patient outcomes. Further research is required to explore patient outcomes sensitive to emergency nursing care.</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería Effect of Digital applications on maternal as well as neonatal outcomes in Young pregnant girls: A Scope Review 2023-11-02T06:52:47-05:00 Jasneet Kaur Sheela Upendra Shital Barde <p><strong>Objective</strong>. To understand the effect of digital applications on maternal and neonatal outcomes in young pregnant girls.</p> <p><strong>Methods.</strong> A PubMed, CINAHL and Medline online database search was conducted, and related studies were included the databases were searched in order to carry out a more in detailed search of the available literature utilizing keywords like “digital technology”; “adolescent mothers”; and “infant, newborn”, as well as Boolean operators to generate papers pertinent which were correlating with the objective of the study.</p> <p><strong>Results.</strong> The findings revealed that the PPPs employed produced both positive and negative effects on mothers and newborns. Some were effective, especially in aspects related to improved mental health, while others did not necessarily support the adolescents in preparing for pregnancy and childbirth, but rather raised their anxiety levels. Similarly, the use of these apps decreased the use of emergency neonatal services by the adolescent mothers and the infants were lower in likelihood of exclusive breastfeeding. Participants appreciated the social media-based instruction, but this exposure did not translate into considerable change in routines and behaviors.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong>. Digital and web-based solutions had the ability to influence adolescent pregnancy outcomes, but further research is needed to assess the extent to which these support services are useful in this Population Group.</p> 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería Consolidation of the Journal Investigación y Educación en Enfermería as a Publication with Impact on the Dissemination of Nursing Knowledge 2023-11-01T11:32:00-05:00 María de los Ángeles Rodríguez Gázquez 2023-11-03T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Investigación y Educación en Enfermería
