The book includes tools for developing, implementing, and evaluating competency-based education and challenges educators to reconsider revising their current teaching methods.
Audience: The audience includes advanced practice nurses and faculty who are responsible for developing educational programs. Dr. Marion Anema has written extensively on nursing education and the practice of nursing. Dr. Jan McKoy has held appointments as nursing faculty and department chair.
Features: The book starts with an overview of competency-based nursing that includes the theory and driving forces behind the concept as well as the pros and cons, allowing readers to see both sides and draw their own conclusions.
