  • Incorporates sample scenarios to illustrate concepts and allow the reader to apply them.
  • Integrates discussion questions and exercises designed to facilitate thoughtful application and critical thinking skills.
  • Addresses all aspects of learning, including "cognitive" (e.g., critical thinking), "affective" (e.g., caring), and "psychomotor" (e.g., technical skills).
  • Provides actual examples of tools to be used for documenting student performance and approaches for stimulating student involvement and critical thinking.
  • Includes a separate chapter on Clinical Faculty as Clinical Coach that discusses how learning is facilitated in the clinical setting with the guidance of an effective teacher.
  • Features a Clinical Toolbox that contains a variety of supplemental resources, including sample approaches for teaching and evaluation, suggestions for preparing anecdotal notes, and relevant reference material.

Another book I would propose for nurses who are currently engaged in teaching and for those who aspires to teach in the clinical setting. The book is very comprehensive and describes how teacher can encourage self evaluation of students/staff concerned.
