As accreditation standards and licensure exam expectations evolve, nurse educators are increasingly challenged to design curricula that encompass an ever-expanding amount of content with a concurrent focus on clinical judgment and preparation for practice. Best Practices in Teaching Nursing empowers readers with a detailed perspective on advances in nursing pedagogies that support the development of deep understanding and effective clinical judgment among students.

Expert nurse educators have contributed essays to this unique text to help foster exceptional education experiences with an emphasis on practical application focused on teaching and assessing learners. Current and best practices are grounded within nursing as a practice profession and incorporate the science of learning, reflecting the most current research-based insights and proven pedagogical approaches.

Among the dynamic new material, readers will find:

  • Critical information for teaching in the classroom and beyond—including online, simulation, and clinical environments.
  • Foundational elements for designing and assessing learning activities.
  • Relevant knowledge and skills behind effective instruction, informed by trusted learning science.
  • Essential pedagogical concepts and salient information for teaching with best practices
  • Concepts and activities to educate diverse learners and address the social determinants of health.
