Description

All teachers and mentors who support nursing and midwifery students are required to complete postgraduate training that has been approved through the NMC register as a professional recordable qualification and this is the ideal text for educators undertaking such study.

With a particular focus on the current educational and skills requirements to teach students, Nurse Education is the only comprehensive text for nurse educators to map onto the NMC standards to support learning and assessment in practice. Incorporating a step-by-step approach, which builds upon previous learning, this textbook covers:

  • Learning processes and key concepts around the theory and practice promoting learning and education
  • Curriculum design, development and evaluation in healthcare education
  • Teaching and assessment methods and strategies
  • Contemplation of the key challenges for nursing education, and the associated further demands of teaching in higher education.

Written by experienced nursing and midwifery professionals, with extensive experience of teaching in higher education and clinical settings, this new textbook is designed as source of reference and support for post-registration nurses as they progress towards becoming mentors, practice educators and lecturers. Nurse Education is essential for practice education staff, higher education health and social care educators, and all who work with nursing and midwifery students.
