This practical text guides novice nurse educators step-by-step through the process of becoming a confident nurse educator, and discusses how to transition from the service setting to the academic setting. It is the only text to comprehensively address not just the teaching and curriculum development components of being an educator, but also the many other skills and duties inherent in this role. Based on the author's personal journey from nursing practice to academe, the text offers a hands-on approach to this challenging process and conveys the author's hard-earned wisdom as she faced hurdle after hurdle but eventually gained tremendous gratification as a nurse educator.

The book addresses ways to "test the waters" to see if the teaching role is right for you, outlines educational preparation requirements, and demonstrates how to utilize past nursing experiences in this new role. It discusses learning styles, curriculum development, theoretical frameworks, legal issues, professional ethics, cultural diversity, and students with learning disabilities. The role of the faculty member is covered in such topics as tenure and promotion, collegiality, service, leadership, and mentoring. The book also addresses writing for publication, research, and scholarly activities. Included in each chapter are learning objectives and review questions, along with suggested assignments intended to assist the teacher and student in professional role development. Additionally, the text prepares students for the interview process and includes sample CVs, patient education handouts, course objectives, and additional resources. The book will be of value in both academic and hospital settings.

Key Features:
  • Provides highly practical, step-by-step information on all components of being a nurse educator/faculty member
  • Helps nurses transition from service role to educator/faculty role
  • Includes reflections and advice from novice and seasoned nurse educators, nurse leaders, and a well-known nursing theorist
  • Includes learning objectives and review questions in each chapter
  • Provides samples of forms and documents for developing course content and sample CVs
