--Nursing Education Perspectives
The Research Journal of the National League for Nursing

The education of nursing students requires a balance between clinical application and theoretical knowledge-or the science and art of nursing. This practical, authoritative book contains comprehensive coverage of everything clinical instructors need to know in order to optimize the clinical experience for their students.

Readers will learn to:

  • Organize the clinical experience
  • Develop relationships with the staff in the clinical facilities
  • Make clinical assignments
  • Plan orientation days
  • Develop clinical rotations and evaluations
  • Understand the legal issues of clinical education

Concise and comprehensive, this book is formatted to present small but pertinent pieces of information, summarized in boxes representing the "Fast Facts in a Nutshell." User-friendly and highly accessible, Fast Facts serves as an invaluable resource for nurses who are beginning their professional teaching careers. It is also useful to seasoned faculty seeking additional resources to improve the clinical experience for their students. This book contains pragmatic, "real-life" information on the clinical teaching process.
