Designed to guide instructors through the learning process, the recently published Clinical Instruction & Evaluation: A Teaching Resource, Third Edition by Andrea B. O'Connor provides clinical nurses with the theoretical background and practical tools necessary to succeed as a clinical nursing instructor. Using an easy-to-understand approach to theory, topics include structuring clinical experiences for students, evaluating student performance, and solving problems encountered in clinical settings.
Completely updated and revised, this new edition includes a larger focus on teaching individuals from other cultures and traditions. In addition, it addresses the impact of the nursing shortage that has not only increased the demand for nurse educators but also expanded the role that expert clinical nurses play in the educational process.
