Evaluation of infection integration in a concept-based curriculum: Are we preparing students for practice?
The morbidity/mortality associated with HAIs, the rapid rise of antibiotic resistance, and the resurgence of pathogens like Ebola virus, make it essential that nursing students develop a deep understanding of the infection concept. This session describes an evaluation of a baccalaureate nursing concept based curriculum for infection concept integration.

The DMLES: An instrument to assess competence in debriefing for meaningful learning
Formal training in theory-based debriefing followed by competence assessment has been recommended by regulatory bodies, yet there is no description of attainment benchmarks. The purpose of this study was to test an instrument which can be used to self-assess and observationally assess behaviors consistent with Debriefing for Meaningful Learning.
