I'm very disappointed that this article is not longer online. It makes things very inconvenient. Please change back to the old policy.

Sample size was only 44 and it was unclear if the new grad RNs were based in the ED or actual med-surg unit.

I appreciated reading your research! Taking this one step further and measuring the outcome on care of the mental health patient among these nurses would be very impactful - to see if this education enhanced their skillset. Thank you for the information.

As an RN that was attacked by a patient, I will advocate for additional training is this area. The patient who attacked me was sent to the hospital for evaluation from the facility that he was staying. He was medically cleared and the facility refused to accept him back due to him injuring multiple staff members. He was not having medical issues needing treatment at that time but the facility sent him to the hospital as a way of washing their hands of him. Regular de-escalation techniques did not work!
