New or revised information:

  • Case studies of negative experiences that illustrate what not to do as a clinical instructor
  • New examples of online modules
  • Changes in accreditation requirements
  • How to foster student accountability
  • Preparing for your clinical teaching assignment
  • How to organize your semester regarding goals, communication with students, establishing student expectations, and more
  • Changes in student and teacher liability
  • How to identify and help weak students
  • How to deal with punctuality and absences
  • Safety concerns

The book describes policies and procedures with which instructors must be familiar, and reviews legal issues including confidentiality and patient privacy. Proper documentation and student evaluations are discussed as well as how to conduct student clinical conferences. Also covered are ways to make efficient use of onsite personnel and the instructor's responsibility regarding NCLEX preparation. This is a valuable resource for nurses who are beginning their professional teaching careers and for seasoned faculty trying to optimize the learning experience for their students.
