Washington, DC — The National League for Nursing proudly announces two new works of scholarship by the NLN Press, powered by Wolters Kluwer, in advance of the annual NLN Education Summit, September 28-30. The two volumes are available for pre-order now at a discount through the NLN Bookstore.  

NLN Chair Kathleen Poindexter, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF, interim associate dean of academic affairs at Michigan State University in Lansing said, “We are proud to feature the latest work of two outstanding nurse educator-scholars in these new NLN Press publications. I urge my colleagues to take full advantage of the expertise they will so generously share.”

The two new publications include:

  • A Systemic Approach to Evaluation of Nursing Programs, 2nd Ed.

    Marilyn Oermann, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF

As the need for high-quality nursing programs, new programs, and new delivery methods continues to grow, systematic and ongoing program evaluation is increasingly critical to the success of nursing schools at all levels of education. A Systematic Approach to Evaluation of Nursing Programs, Second Edition, equips nurse educators, administrators, and others involved in program evaluation with truly transformative strategies for conducting ongoing formative and summative evaluation of nursing programs. Updated with the latest perspectives from respected authorities across the field of nursing education, this concise volume provides an approachable resource with full comprehensive support to build stronger nursing programs.

  • Clinical Simulations in Nursing Education, 2nd Ed.

     Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF

In today’s quickly changing health care environment, simulation has become an indispensable strategy for preparing nursing students to deliver optimal patient care. Clinical Simulations in Nursing Education: Concepts, Trends, and Opportunities, Second Edition, takes the use of simulations to the next level, exploring innovative teaching/learning methods, new clinical models, and up-to-date best practices for providing high-quality education. From the evolution of clinical simulations to the use of more virtual simulations, incorporation of important constructs like the social determinants of health, and the use of simulations in nursing education and competency-based testing, this engaging resource will be of great value to intermediate and advanced simulation users and advocates as they help prepare nurse educators to develop, plan, implement, evaluate, and create evidence-based scholarship to further advance effective simulation programs in nursing education.

NLN President and CEO Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN said, “The strategies highlighted by Dr. Marilyn Oermann can be used to change the culture for nursing programs attempting to seek successful accreditation. For programs that have already achieved accreditation, the strategies presented here will offer options for ongoing systematic evaluation that are based on evidence.” Dr. Malone added, “Dr. Pamela Jeffries continues to be a leader in simulation and research. Her latest volume includes chapters about diversity and cultural change and how to advance clinical judgment through simulation. We are so delighted to offer these two outstanding books that significantly add to the quality of nursing education literature.”
