"I recommend this book as an introduction to new educators involved in clinical teaching."--Journal for Nurses in Staff Development

This textbook presents a comprehensive framework for planning, guiding, and evaluating learning activities for undergraduate and graduate nursing students in clinical settings.

The book presents clinical teaching strategies that are effective and practical in a rapidly changing health care environment. It describes a range of teaching strategies useful for courses in which the teacher is on-site with students, in courses using preceptors, in simulation laboratories, and in distance education environments.

This book represents the cutting edge of educational strategies, examining innovative uses of virtual reality, game-based learning, and nontraditional sites for clinical teaching. Also discussed are culturally inclusive strategies, methods incorporating current technologies, and strategies for teaching students with disabilities.

Key Topics:

  • Choosing clinical learning assignments
  • Self-directed learning activities
  • Case method, case study, and grand rounds
  • Clinical Nurse Educator Examination Detailed Test Blueprint core competencies
  • Evaluation strategies and grading for written assignments
  • Ethical and legal issues in clinical teaching

Recognizing that clinical settings require different approaches to teaching, the contributors present all the tools necessary to help educators meet the challenges of this complex learning environment.

This book is suited for all nurses intending to take a teaching role in the school of nursing and also in the clinical area. The information is current and for a nation like us ( Malaysia) where we are in the process of further developing the supervisory role of clinical nurse ( a nurse with a Bachelor of Nursing at least) the information is insightful.
For a teacher like me, I could certainly use a lot of the information presented in the book when I teach in the Teaching Methodology program offered at our university. Additionally as most of the examples are US based, I would have to incorporate local scenarios to give better understanding, but still using the concepts in the book.
This book will be recommended as further reading for students of Master in Nursing, who are currently involve in teaching.
