The Department believes that a strong foundation of the introductory concepts and skills in nursing leads to a fulfilling and satisfying career.

The Fundamentals of Nursing Skills Laboratory is equipped with models and teaching aids to provide the students with meaningful opportunity to acquire basic skills and provide them with a venue to practice their newly acquired skills under the supervision of a qualified instructor. Basic nursing skills are first demonstrated by the skills laboratory facilitator after which the students are given the chance to practice before a graded return demonstration is performed as scheduled. A record of the skills performed by the student is kept in the Related Learning Experience Record Book and signed by the supervising facilitator.

Prevalence of hepatitis C infection in hemodialysis patients: Report from 37 hemodialysis centers in Libya

Background/Aims: Data on the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in Libya, and particularly among hemodialysis patients, are scarce. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of HCV infection among hemodialysis patients at 37 dialysis centers in Libya and review the demographic features in this group of patients. Patients and Methods: The present cross-sectional study included a total of 2325 patients who had spent at least 3 months in hemodialysis at 37 dialysis centers in different cities across the three main regions of Libya (Western, Eastern, and Southern regions). There were 1028 (44.2%) female and 1297 (55.8%) male with mean age 53.4 ± 15 years. Hypertension (36.4%), diabetes mellitus (33.3%), renal diseases (10.9%), genetic diseases (7.5%), and unclear reasons (12%) were diverse underlying causes of end-stage renal disease in these patients. Anti-HCV antibody was screened by a third-generation enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technique. Results: The overall seroprevalence of HCV infection among hemodialysis patients in Libya was 16.7% (388/2325), ranging from 0% to 26.3% at different centers. The overall frequency of anti-HCV antibodies was higher in Western region (18.9%) than Eastern (18.3%) and Southern (6.1%) regions of Libya. It is noteworthy that the prevalence of HCV was 0% in numbers of dialysis centers across the three regions. The duration of hemodialysis was significantly longer in HCV-positive hemodialysis patients than in HCV-negative patients (P = 0.01). Hepatitis B surface antigen was positive in 92 hemodialysis patients (4%), of them 8 patients (8.7%) had coinfection with HCV infection. Conclusion: The present study showed an intermediate-prevalence rate of HCV infection among hemodialysis patients in Libya. The relatively low prevalence of HCV infection in the general Libyan population and HCV infection associated with a longer duration of hemodialysis indicate nosocomial transmission due to inappropriate infection control practices as the main HCV route of infection in these health-care settings.

Breast cancer in western part of Libya: Pattern and management (2003-2018)

Background: Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world; the most frequent cancer among women, and leading cause of cancer death in females worldwide. Aim: The aim of the study is to study the pattern and treatment modalities for breast cancer patients who registered in Tripoli University Hospital from 2003 to 2018. Patients and Methods: A retrospective, cross-sectional study was conducted at the Oncology Department of Tripoli University Hospital. A convenience sample of 1000 breast cancer patients from 2003 to 2018 was chosen. Demographic, clinic-pathological characteristics, and treatment modalities data were analyzed by SPSS program version 20. Results: Of 1000 breast cancer patients, there were 984 (98.4%) females and 16 (1.6%) males, mean age was 46.1 ± 11.7 years old, most of them from western region. Majority (64.3%) of female were early age at menarche and 46.2% not breastfed. Positive family history of first degree was 28.8%. The left side presentation was the predominant (60.3%); half of the cases were in Stage II. Invasive ductal carcinoma was diagnosed among 62.5% of the cases and 47% of them were in Grade III. Positive estrogen receptor recorded in 73.8% of cases compared to 69.5% positive progesterone. Furthermore, 76.8% of patients had human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative and 78.4% of cases had high Ki-67 level. Regarding management, a combination of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and hormonal were provided to 58% of cases, 45.5% of patients who received chemotherapy were treated with FEC regimen. Hormonal therapy was given to 67.7% and tamoxifen is the most drugs used. Conclusions: The frequency is higher among younger age (

A Correlational Study on the Learning Styles of Tripoli University Nursing Students and Instructors: Basis for Academic Enhancement

The aim of the study is to determine the relationship between learning style of the nursing students’ with that of the instructors’ for continuous academic enhancement based on the identified learning styles with the aid of Kolb’s Learning style inventory as the survey questionnaire and utilizing secondary data which is the midterm grades of the students to determine the academic performance. The collected data were then analyzed to determine the relationship of the two variables utilizing the product momentum correlation. The findings that the researcher was able to extract from the study were: 1) that among the different learning styles, accommodator type of learning style among the students got the highest frequency of ten (10) or 45.45%. 2) that among the different learning styles, the converger type of learning style among the instructors got the highest frequency of four (4) or 50.00%. 3) Predominantly, the sixteen (16) or 69.57% nursing students scored 5.00 or failed in the academic performance as shown in the midterm grades. 4) the two (2) variables, students’ learning styles and instructors’ learning styles perfectly correlate as shown in the midterm grades of the students. Based on these findings, the researcher was able to conclude that first, the learning styles of the instructors are diverse though most fall under the category of converger; Second, that the students’ learning styles are also diverse and most of them fall under the category of accommodator; Third, Ratings showed that most of the students needs further academic enhancement; and Lastly, the learning styles of the instructors perfectly correlates with that of the students and therefore, plays a vital role in academic enhancement.
