Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara Owens, MSN, RN (University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio)
Description: This book is an overview of clinical teaching/learning strategies and activities for nursing students. It is one of a series on teaching in nursing.
Purpose: The purpose is to examine concepts of clinical teaching and provide a comprehensive framework for learning activities in the clinical setting. Due to the complexity of clinical settings, this book is a valuable resource for approaches to teaching that vary greatly from classroom instruction.
Audience: Targeted specifically for clinical nursing instructors, this book would also apply to other healthcare professionals as well as graduate nursing students preparing to teach nursing.
Features: This is a comprehensive framework for clinical teaching for nursing instructors and graduate students preparing to teach nursing. The chapters, titles, and subtitles are easy to follow and focus on particular aspects of clinical teaching. The authors explain how the philosophy of the individual serves as a guide for how we practice and how learning outcomes are evaluated. Each phase of clinical learning activity is addressed, from preparation to the processes, and finishing with evaluation. Ethical and legal issues are briefly covered. Learning modes and activities to enhance group process learning are discussed, but not in great detail. Several references are cited throughout each chapter and listed at the end of each chapter for further investigation of special interests related to clinical teaching.
Assessment: A primary strength of this book is the up-to-date discussion of multimedia use in teaching, such as computer-assisted instruction, interactive videodisc, CD-ROM, virtual reality, and the Internet. Another strength is the special focus on teaching/learning in the clinical setting.
