Learners are accessing and organizing information much differently than they did only a few years ago. Technology has changed the way students learn and educators teach. Highlighting innovative teaching techniques and real-world illustrations of the educational strategies, Innovative Teaching Strategies in Nursing and Related Health Professions, Eighth Edition goes beyond theory to offer practical application principles that educators can count on.
We're excited to announce a three-year partnership with the National Education Progression in Nursing Collaborative (NEPIN) to accelerate educational advancement for nurses across the United States. With a mission of fostering collaboration to ensure that nurses have access to higher levels of education and achievement, the vision of NEPIN is a diverse nursing workforce that optimizes the health of all Americans. Jones & Bartlett Learning supports this vision as well.

Welcome back guest blogger, Dr. Karen Hessler, PhD, FNP-C, author of Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Interactive Learning Meets Technology.
The last blog of 2016 has arrived after a busy fall in Colorado. Flipping my class this past semester was a fantastic success, and prompts me to encourage all of you to keep up the great work to perfect your flipped pedagogy. My teaching is more meaningful and my evaluations are a nice reflection of student appreciation for my efforts to bring to the classroom a new and innovative teaching style. Although much of the research discusses student resistance to the flipped classroom (including my own!) I will have to say that once students experience the flipped classroom as it is meant to be delivered, they are extremely appreciative of its implementation. Students realize how much they’ve learned, and how much more they’ve learned within the flipped classroom than in the traditional lecture-based teaching structure they experience in other classes. In particular, my students appreciate the application of content that the flipped classroom allows.

Happy Fall to everyone! I trust that nursing classrooms across the country and around the world are all abuzz with students and faculty working together to teach and learn the concepts and pearls of wisdom necessary to develop the next generation of nurses. As I think about the flipped classroom at its best and brightest, I wonder if we are considering the spacial aspect of our classrooms carefully enough.
Please welcome our guest blogger, Dr. Karen Hessler, PhD, FNP-C, author of Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Interactive Learning Meets Technology, for a post on the highs and lows of flipped classrooms.
Summer is such a great time to take a few minutes to reflect on our teaching practices in the classroom and clinical settings. Even if you find yourself busy with publications, presentations at conferences, and teaching coursework during the summer, taking a moment to think about how we teach is a worthy endeavor. As I watched the fireworks display on the 4th of July with my family this year, it made me think of a parallel to my flipped classroom experiences. Some of the fireworks were beautiful, brilliant, and awe-inspiring, while others seemed to be…..well, duds.
The flipped learning model is a hot topic in nursing education right now. Why is this? Research has shown that it can improve traditional teaching methods and promote active learning and participation in the classroom. That's why Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Active Learning Meets Technology by Karen Hessler is not only timely but also essential. In a recent review, Susan G. Wiers, DNP, from Michigan State University College of Nursing, for Doody's Review Service, writes that,
“This unique book is well written and provides a wealth of information to guide even novice nursing instructors interested in the innovative pedagogical model of the flipped classroom.”
