Abstract : Area of nursing sciences is rapidly growing and updating. This necessity the need to graduate nurse who have the talent of self-directed learning and to incorporate this talent with her learning style. For any professional nurse, continues self-development through self-directed learning is the milestone of her excellence. Consequently, this will be reflected on the quality of nursing care. To investigate the relationship between learning style and readiness for self-directed learning among nursing students at Najran University. Descriptive correlational research design. Nursing colleges at Najran University. Comprehensive sample of all nursing students registered on the nursing program during the second semester 2019. Three tools were used for data collection: Sociodemographic and academic history questionnaire, a modified version of C.I.T.E instrument to asses learning styles and Self-Directed Learning Readiness Scale for Nursing Education. Auditory-Visual-Kinesthetic and social individual were major learning style among 87.3% and 84.8% of the nursing student, respectively. Furthermore, 79.2% of them have high readiness for self-directed learning. The mean score for self-control (40.7919± 5.81977) is higher than self-management (39.1371± 6.04123) and desire for learning (40.7919± 5.81977) was the least once. A statistically significant relations between different learning styles and RSDL total score and its constructs was observed. Largest proportion of nursing students at Najran University have high readiness for self-directed learning which is related to the common learning styles among them. Efforts should be directed to enhance self-directed learning among them.

Abstract : Based on the comprehensive stem cells (SCs) research results, many researchers have assumed that the cells could possibly create treatment and management for several diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancers, and igniting optimism of developing SCs replacement treatment in a health setting. Nurses can play a significant role in giving information to the community about SCs. Therefore, the knowledge given from nurses to patients must be accurate and balanced. Evaluate maternity nurses’ knowledge and attitude regarding SCs and cord blood collection. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried on a convenience sample of maternity nurses (n= 198) worked in maternity and children hospital (MCH), Najran city. A self-administrated questionnaire was used which contains three main parts; part I: Demographic data, part II: knowledge assessment toward SCs and cord blood collection, and part III: Modified Likert scale to assess nurses’ attitude as regard to SCs and cord blood collection. About two-third (69.7%) of nurses had fair knowledge about SCs and cord blood collection and only 30.3% of them had good knowledge. About 43.9% of them exhibited positive attitude regarding SCs. Moreover, there was a significant relationship (FET= 9.274, p= 0.009) between maternity nurses' knowledge and their attitude. Maternity nurses in MCH Najran had fair knowledge and a positive attitude toward SCs and cord blood collection. Consequently, the study recommends implementing in-services training programs related to SCs and cord blood collection for the nurses to enhance their information and motivate a more positive attitude.

Abstract : Ideally the compounding drug is made from pure active substances but in reality, the prescribed drug as an extemporaneous compounding is in a form of factory finished drug dosage form, which should be intended for adult then formulated and adjusted to the conditions of patients. The Food Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of quality problems of drugs prescribed; one of the problems is contamination. This study aims to determine the microbial contamination in the dosage of non-sterile semi-solid extemporaneous compounding prescribed in primary health care centers. This study was an experimental observation conducted on primary health care centers by taking the prescriptions of semi-solid dosage forms used as samples. Hydrocortison cream and Gentamycin by microbial testing used chosen media for 5 pathogenic microbes, namely Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans. Data analysis was carried out descriptively by comparing the results of the study with the requirements contained in United States Pharmacopeia (USP). Based on USP requirements, there were three semi-solid non-sterile dosage forms of extemporaneous compounding from primary health care centers A, B and D that have not meet the requirements because from the microbial test results it was found bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa and/or Staphylococcus aureus.

Abstract : Nurses working at ICUs are at risk of developing mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression due to the highly demanding nature of their work and the working environment. Indeed, these disorders may negatively influence the health status of nurses and might decrease the level of nurses’ professional performance. Purpose: To investigate the effect of anxiety and depression on the performance of nurses working in intensive care units in Jordan. A non-experimental descriptive cross-sectional design was used for this study. A validated self-reported questionnaire; the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale and the Six-Dimensional Scale of Nursing Performance were used among 375 nurses. Nurses working in ICUs were picked from two private and two governmental hospitals in Jordan. Jordanian nurses working in ICUs had a mild level of anxiety and depression with a mean score of (8.25 ± 3.74; 8.61 ±3 .67, respectively). The lower levels of anxiety, the lower levels of depression predicted higher quality and frequency in performing nursing care. The higher level of education predicted higher quality of performing activities while the higher years of experience and nurse working in governmental hospitals predicted a higher frequency of performing nursing activities. Anxiety and depression faced by ICU nurses in Jordan negatively affected their performance and therefore the outcome of the patient health status. Therefore, assessing factors causing anxiety and depression among nurses is crucial. Future research may implement strategies to decrease anxiety and depression and examine the effect of these strategies on the performance of the nurses.

Abstract : Congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) affects up to 20% of all newborns; however, controversies remain regarding the primary treating specialty. The present study aims to evaluate physicians’ knowledge about CNLDO from among all possible specialties that may encounter CNLDO cases. A thorough questionnaire was developed to assess knowledge, attitude, and practice of pediatricians, ophthalmologists, primary care physicians, and general practitioners regarding CNLDO. Ninety-six participants were included in this study with a mean age ± standard deviation of 29.1 ±5.18 years. Marital status significantly affected the mean scores for practice because married doctors had a higher mean score (P=0.045). The practice setting significantly affected only knowledge (p= 0.008) because doctors in university hospitals had a higher mean score (difference, 4.53; confidence [CI], 2.12-6.94). Ophthalmologists had higher knowledge and practice scores than did other specialists. Years of experience also affected the attitude toward CNLDO cases: more experienced doctors had higher scores, regardless of their specialty. Different specialists encounter the common condition CNLDO. Encouraging referrals to ophthalmologists and providing more educational materials to pediatricians is essential because pediatricians are the most common specialists who will encounter such cases.
