Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bonnie L. Saucier, PhD, RN (Indiana State University)
Description: This book is designed to prepare the educator in a role that is an essential component of practice. This second edition provides new features that reflect a balance between current theoretical perspectives in the field and the application of these theories to practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the nurse educator the beginning proficiency in educating others. The process presented here takes into consideration the basic foundations of education, the needs and characteristics of the learner as well as the appropriate techniques and strategies for teaching/learning. The author has successfully demonstrated these objectives in this second edition.
Audience: The book is for graduate students, upper level undergraduates and professional nurses who will be in the role of an educator. The author is a credible authority who has a first edition award-winning book.
Features: This second edition provides new features with an increased emphasis on the nurse functioning as a "guide by the side" and a "facilitator" of learning. There is a shift of focus in this book from teaching those who are ill to teaching clients to maintain optimal health. New in this edition is a chapter on technology in education (Chapter 18) which emphasizes the latest technological advances available to the educator as well as issues related to the use of technology. Several chapters have been updated with information and expansion of discussions for related healthcare settings. An instructor's manual accompanies this edition and contains test items, learning activities, and instructional materials. There is a glossary with new terms as well as chapter review question sections.
Assessment: This second edition comprehensively covers the essential components of the education process and the principles of teaching and learning. It includes important attributes of the learner and many aspects of the teaching role in nursing practice. This book is an invaluable resource for understanding the basics of teaching and learning. It will undoubtedly assist nurses in their role as educators.
From The Critics
This textbook explores the role nurses can play in educating patients about healthcare. The 15 chapters consider the basic foundations of the education process, the needs and characteristics of the learner, and the appropriate instructional techniques and strategies for teaching and learning. The second edition adds a chapter on technology in education. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
