NLN Publishes New Titles in Nursing Education

Meet the Authors at Wolters Kluwer Booth at
NLN Summit in Orlando, Wednesday, September 21

“The NLN brings innovative scholarship and evidence-based best practices in curricula and teaching-learning strategies for advancing the science of nursing education, for the enrichment of this and future generations of faculty and students.”

NLN CEO Beverly Malone

Washington, DC, September 15, 2016 - A National League for Nursing tradition continues with the release of new works of scholarship in conjunction with the annual NLN Education Summit, Beyond Boundaries. Three new titles and the recently published A Systematic Approach to Assessment and Evaluation of Nursing Programs edited by Dr. Marilyn Oermann will be available at the 2016 Summit at the Orlando World Center Marriott September 21-23.

These latest NLN books are:

bullet Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors (ACE.S): A Guide for Faculty, Elaine Tagliareni, EdD, RN, CNE, FAAN, ed., a publication of the NLN Center for Excellence in the Care of Vulnerable Populations, dedicated to the late Dr. Andrea Mengel, a co-creator of the ACE.S project and trailblazer in geriatric nursing

This book provides a roadmap for the implementation of ACE.S. The first section offers the foundational evidence for the ACE.S framework and evaluation of the total project; the second section presents exemplars of how faculty, many of them NLN Hearst Foundations Award winners, applied the ACE.S framework to their unique curricula.

bullet Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice: Creating A Blueprint for Nurse Educators, Elizabeth Speakman, EdD, RN, FNAP, ed., in collaboration with the NLN Center for Transformational Leadership

This practical book helps nurse educators develop multidiscipline, team-based learning opportunities for students. Each chapter, coauthored by an interprofessional team, presents a broad perspective on how to create, deliver, and evaluate meaningful interprofessional education and collaborative practice learning opportunities.

bullet Scientific Inquiry in Nursing Education: Advancing the Science, Barbara Patterson, PhD, RN, ANEF, and Anne Krouse, PhD, MBA, RN-BC, eds., in collaboration with the NLN | Chamberlain College of Nursing Center for the Advancement of the Science of Nursing Education

A concern for the quality of the scholarship and research upon which faculty have been basing teaching practices was the impetus for this book. Filling a void in nursing education and research, it addresses the need for rigorous study design that is theoretically based, using reliable and valid measures to move the discipline forward.

Publisher Wolters Kluwer will host “Meet the NLN Authors” at its booth on September 21. Attendees can buy autographed books and speak with the scholars. Drs. Pamela Jeffries and Linda Caputi, whose books were published last year, will be on hand as well.

“The NLN Summit provides an ideal opportunity to showcase the latest work of leading scholars and offer nurse faculty, students, deans and others time to interact personally with those who have conceived, implemented and interpreted cutting-edge studies.” said NLN president Anne R. Bavier, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor and dean of the College of Nursing at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Added NLN CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN: “The NLN is proud to bring innovative scholarship and evidence-based best practices in curricula and teaching-learning strategies for advancing the science of nursing education, for the enrichment of this and future generations of faculty and students.”
