Nancy Haugen and Nandini Dasgupta(Abstract)
Purpose: The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine what cut score on standardized exams offered within an entry level MSN program (ELMSN) are the best predictors first-time NCLEX-RN pass rates.One measure of a nursing program effectiveness used by State Boards of Nursing and national accrediting bodies are its graduates first-time pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination, Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN). The emphasis is placed on the first-time 'pass rate as data shows higher failure rates for repeated NCLEX-RN takers compared to first-time exam takers (NCSBN, 2016). The impact of NCLEX-RN exam failure includes all of the global health care community and as has a negative effect on the ongoing nursing shortage. Nursing programs have implemented standardized testing requirements as one requirement to assist in keeping graduates' NCLEX-RN first-time pass rates high. Publishers of standardized examinations provide schools with recommendations for what scores predict NCLEX-RN success based on nationwide data. Unfortunately, these studies do not differentiate among the types of nursing programs in the data (Zweighaft, 2013). A review of the literature found few studies conducted on factors that predict success in second degree and accelerated programs (Abbott, Schwartz, Hercinger, Miller, & Foyt, 2008, Penprase & Harris, 2013, and Kaddoura, Flint, Van Dyke, Yang, & Chiang, 2017). However, no studies were found that provide the best cut scores on standardized exams for entry level MSN programs. Methodology: Regressions models using convenience sample of ELMSN graduates from a private health sciences university in northern California. Results and Conclusions: The cut scores determined from the standardized exams will be used to provide academic support to at risk students to enable their NCLEX success.

Hamad Ghalib Dailah(Abstract)
Introduction Globally, asthma is one of the major non-communicable diseases with 235 million people currently suffering from the condition. In Saudi Arabia, there is a 4% prevalence of asthma amongst the adult population. This study aimed to develop an adult asthma patient self-management education programme that took into account the Saudi context and culture. Systematic review A systematic review was conducted to determine the most effective way of delivering asthma self-management education programs. It was shown in the review that asthma was more prevalent in individuals with less education, with nurses had an important role in educating patients with this disease. Following analysis of this evidence alongside the Saudi context; small group education programs delivered by nurses were selected as the most appropriate means of delivering education which considered patient individual needs and cultural values to improve their health outcomes in terms of self-management. Methods An explanatory sequential complementary mixed methods design was adopted. This design encompassed a quasi experiment using a pre-post test comparative study followed by qualitative part using face-to-face interviews with patients. The intervention was an educational program developed and included topics selected based on patientsâ€™ needs in the review and following the SINA guidance. The programme was tested to determine whether it provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills to self-manage their asthma and consequently decrease their visits to emergency departments. Further, the program was also approved and co-designed with nursing staff who provide care for patients with asthma in the selected hospital and following consultation with patients. The program was delivered by nurses and other professionals who were trained to ensure the quality of delivery. Data was collected pre, post and at 3 and 6 months following the intervention and included topics related to asthma; Asthma Control Test, Asthma Self-Management Questionnaire, the Asthma Knowledge Questionnaire and the Patient Activation Measure (PAM) instrument. Prior to data collection, instruments were all translated to Arabic language, the language of participants, and validated to assure the validity of patientsâ€™ responses. Patients in the control group were able to receive the intervention after six months, the last data collection point in the study. Findings Analysis of the responses between the pre and post-tests demonstrate that patients with higher levels of knowledge had higher Patientsâ€™ Activation Measure scores. Patientsâ€™ scores in all data sets in phase 2 were higher than those in phase 1 which indicated the education was effective and increased confidence in self-management of their asthma. Results to date suggest that the bespoke education is relevant and provides the necessary knowledge to increase confidence and patient activation towards disease self-management and reducing complications. Study Progress Longer term follow-up data and qualitative interviews will be completed in late February 2019. It is anticipated that these results will confirm the educational program is suited to the Saudi Arabian context, improves knowledge and increases confidence in the self-management of asthma.

Introduction: Cancer leads not only economic problems for the family and the health systems, also implies confrontation and adaptation to problems for patients and their families. Although several articles of nursing have studied the concepts of confrontation and adaptation derived from the RoyÂ´s Model, the results it seems to be generals without making specifications or comparisons by gender or type of cancer. The gender could benefit or not to the confrontation or adaptation process against different types of Cancer and this knowledge could be used for the practice of the healthcare science. Objective: Estimate confrontation and adaptation level in people with cancer, make comparison between genders and cancer types. Methodology: A descriptive, comparative and transversal study was made in persons that attend to an Oncology Unit of Puebla State. The sampling size was estimated with 95% of confidence, resulting in n=120 (60 woman with Mama Ca or Uterine-Cervix Cancer and 60 men with Cancer of prostate, lung and testicle). The average age between men and women was X Ì…=47.42Â±11 v.s. X Ì…=47.12Â±17 respectively. Comparing the confrontation and adaptation averages between men was reported X Ì…=47.42Â±11 v.s. X Ì…=47.12Â±17 respectively. To compare the confrontation and adaptation averages, an ANOVA was applied obtaining very similar averages and not significative difference was found between the different types of cancer (p=.952). Discussions and Conclusions: The confrontation and adaptation level to cancer by gender and cancer type are not statistically different; which lies on the importance of observing this persons with major thoroughness and including other variables like social and familiar support to follow the attachment to the treatment. Key words: Stress, Adaptation, Cancer, Gender.

Corina Mariela Alba-Alba, Maria del Rosario Ramirez-Machorro (Abstract)
For years, the traditional teaching of Research in Nursing has been rejected by the students because they donÂ´t perceive the utility of research in their lives as nurses or they perceive the subject with a lot of theory, which it is so far from their ideas of Nursing Practice. Then, How can we form new researchers in nursing without falling in the intent? This poster presents an experience of a group of volunteer students that attend practice sessions of research were they investigate any topic they want in very simple form under the proposed method â€œLess Research Theory, more practiceâ€. After two years of work, we started with 6 nursing students of different semesters and now we are a Formal Student Organization called â€œFrontiers of Health Researchâ€ with around 25 elements doing and learning research with no theoretical classes.
