Overview

Who better to learn from about teaching than teachers themselves?

Written by teachers and about teachers, this book is for graduate students in nursing education as well as mid-career nurse educators. This volume features narratives based on interviews with twenty-one distinguished teachers of nursing. Selected by the editors based on personal experiences with them as teachers or mentors, their current stature in the nursing education community, or because they are recipients of national teaching awards, these teachers provide multiple role models for career development and offer a plethora of wisdom, including:

  • Deciding on a career in teaching nursing
  • Preparing and mentoring in teaching
  • Maintaining excellence
  • Comfortable times as a teacher
  • Embarrassing teaching moments
  • Most and least rewarding times
  • Significant challenges
  • Advice for new teachers
  • Building collegial relationships
  • Continuous self-development
  • Scholarly development
  • Balancing professional and personal life
