Nurse competencies for transitions of care: Implications for education and practice.
Betz, CL, Zalon, ML, Caramanica, L, Arslanian‐Engoren, C.
Nursing Forum. 2020; 1– 7. https://doi.org/10.1111/nuf.12544
Although there are a number of transitions of care initiatives that address specific needs as patients move across healthcare settings, adverse events still occur during handoffs. Transitions of care create periods of vulnerability for populations with complex needs that include communication gaps, medication changes, and poorly coordinated treatment plans, often without involving patients and their families. This paper outlines what nurses need to know to provide for safe transitions of care across the healthcare continuum. The theoretical basis for transitions of care at the macro level, examples of nurse‐led models for transitions of care, and key activities and implications for nursing education and practice are described. A holistic framework for effective transitions of care across healthcare settings can guide nursing educators in the development of specific nursing competencies for transitions of care
Interventions and strategies aimed at Clinical Academic Pathway Development for Nurses in the United Kingdom: A systematised review of the literature.

Aims and objectives
To review interventions and strategies designed to progress UK clinical academic career pathways in nursing and identify barriers and facilitators to aid wider implementation.
For over a decade, the UK political agenda has promoted the entry of nurses into clinical academic roles. Partnerships between the National Health Service and academia are known to increase nursing recruitment, retention and quality of care. However, there remains a lack of nurses working in these partnership roles.
