Abstract

Purpose

In this paper, the authors situate existing scholarship about men in nursing within the broader gendered landscape of the profession and society. As a consequence, the need to reframe the discourse about men in nursing from the current emphasis on personal or collective experiences to collective action becomes apparent. The paper aims to discuss these issues.

Design/methodology/approach

A critical synthesis of scholarship addressing men in nursing serves as the basis for a conceptual paper which challenges the existing discourse on men in nursing.

Findings

The experiences and careers of men in nursing are profoundly shaped by patriarchal power structures that situate caregiving within the realm of the feminine. Although men generally benefit in the context of patriarchal society, men in nursing are subject to a patriarchal paradox that marginalizes their performance of masculinity and situates them as unlikely caregivers. Therefore, men in nursing are preoccupied with balancing the contradictions and tensions in their lives associated with enacting a contextual performance of masculinity depending on the social context of their gender performance.

Originality/value

A comprehensive synthesis of the existing men in nursing literature is presented and these findings are situated within a broader discussion of gender in nursing and society. This analysis provides the impetus for a “call to action” for nursing to comprehensively and meaningfully address the negative consequences of patriarchal forces on the profession of nursing.

Abstract

In 13 days, 68 staff members,working with volunteers and student assistants, barcoded 400,000 books. Barcode labels, containing location designation, call number, and barcode number, were produced from and linked to the bibliographic database. Recommendations for other institutions anticipating a similar “crash program” are included.

Abstract

This introduction to the volume Atmospheric Turn in Culture and Tourism: Place, Design and Process Impacts on Customer Behaviour, Marketing and Branding (Emerald) positions the atmospheric turn in the context of recent paradigmatic turns such as the linguistic turn, iconic turn, cultural turn, spatial turn, mobility turn and design turn. The specific contribution of the atmospheric turn is its profoundly holistic interest in overarching connections which are perceived with all senses and include both matter and idea. With its 22 chapters, this volume sets out to sharpen the atmospheric gaze and perception in research and beyond.

Abstract

By Theodore Besterman's death on 10 November 1976 in his seventy‐first year, scholarship, bibliography and documentation and a wide range of esoteric subjects have lost a master of near fabulous achievement—how else, to note only two of his works, can one describe the 107 volumes of Voltaire's correspondence which he completed in twelve years as virtually a one‐man job, except for the help of an assistant for part of the time provided by the Swiss Foundation for Scientific Research, and the three editions of the World bibliography of bibliographies. To these great solo achievements as a scholar must be added his skill and discrimination as a collector, outstandingly of Voltaire editions and manuscripts and every Voltaire relic which he could procure as the material basis of the publications and activities of the Institut et Museé Voltaire in Geneva which was established solely through Besterman's creative efforts.

Abstract

In their continuing quest for new product ideas, marketers are directed to the U.S. Census figures where they can identify shifting populations and newly emerging demographic entities. Rather than relying on old stereotypes for direction, marketers must study the changed values, attitudes, lifestyles and self‐image of these groups. Using qualitative research techniques, the author says will result in implications for new product development, production, sales and marketing. The author identifies three groups whose lifestyles she has studied and who fit the parameters described above: Working women, singles and the 50‐plus age group. Opportunities for marketers are suggested as she describes their changed lifestyles which create a need for new products and services.

Abstract

This is the first part of a two‐part paper examining the problem of nursing shortages in the health profession in Canada. It draws on the problem from a historical and sociological perspective, with personal interviews, and historical data, to demonstrate the author’s theory that nursing shortages are nothing new. They are systemic in nature resulting from fundamental problems in the profession itself. Traditional solutions such as bringing in cheaper labour have exacerbated the problems, serving to perpetuate the commonly held view of nursing as an extension of women’s work in the home. Poor working conditions, ongoing power struggles with administrators and the medical establishment, and a handmaiden image have all served to create an ongoing cultural environment of powerlessness which the nursing profession has been unable to transcend, and serves as a deterrent to successful professional leadership and ongoing recruitment.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the implementation of the flipped classroom method in teaching the course and to investigate the student’s perceived helpfulness, learning outcomes and satisfaction in respect of the pre-class learning videos.

Design/methodology/approach

Pre-class learning videos were integrated into a course to encourage students to acquire knowledge before lectures and workshops. Having completed the flipped classroom, a delivery questionnaire containing all items was distributed to all of the participants. The data collected were analysed statistically, using a structured equation modelling technique.

Findings

Findings indicate that the perceived quality of experience of using videos before lectures and workshops has a positive influence on the perceived helpfulness of the pre-class learning videos. Furthermore, the perceived helpfulness of the pre-class learning videos has a positive effect of the acquisition perceived learning outcomes. The perceived helpfulness of the pre-class learning videos also has a positive impact on the student satisfaction with the course. Finally, there is a positive and causal relationship between the perceived learning outcomes and student’s satisfaction with the course.

Originality/value

Analysis reveals that the learning process and student satisfaction are improved by using pre-class learning videos.
