BACKGROUND: Undergraduate and doctoral nursing students enrolled in face-to-face (F2F) learning transitioned abruptly to remote learning in March 2020. Few studies have focused on these nursing students' satisfaction with remote learning a year after the unplanned transition. PURPOSE: Undergraduate and doctoral students' satisfaction with remote and F2F learning regarding course organization and student engagement were examined. METHODS: A cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted among 522 nursing students at a research intensive university in the eastern United States. Survey data were analyzed with an analysis of variance to compare students' remote and F2F learning satisfaction within the undergraduate and doctoral programs. RESULTS: Results indicated that nursing students who enrolled in F2F learning preferred F2F to remote learning (P < .001). Differenc-es in satisfaction existed among programs (P = .035) and among undergraduate class levels (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: It is essential to learn why nursing students were dissatisfied with remote learning to improve these types of learn-ing experiences in the future.

ABSTRACT: For nurses, the challenges posed by demanding work environments and schedules often lead to fatigue, and this can be exacerbated during crises like the COVID-19 pandemic. In this article, the authors discuss causes and challenges of nurse fatigue and consider several evidence-based strategies and solutions for individual nurses and organizations. Barriers to implementation, including a negative workplace culture and inadequate staffing, are also described, and several resources are presented.

BACKGROUND: Little is known about nursing faculty and nursing student's confidence or potential hesitancy to receive the Covid-19 vaccine once it was available. METHODS: An anonymous electronic survey of nursing students and faculty was conducted at a large academic center in the eastern U.S. FINDINGS: Both students and faculty reported they were fairly or completely confident that the vaccine was safe (n = 235, 89.4%) and that it would effectively mitigate their risk (n = 230, 87.5%). There was a 52.6% decrease in vaccine hesitancy from 6 months prior (p <.01); 22% (n = 58) of those currently willing to receive the vaccine reported moderate to high concern about its side-effects and/or long-term efficacy. Access to vaccine research, vaccine education, and watching others be inoculated, had mitigated their concerns from the previous six months. DISCUSSION: While both nursing students and faculty reported having high confidence in the efficacy and safety of the Covid-19 vaccine, concerns remained.
