Teaching Strategies for Nurse Educators, 3e, prepares graduate nursing students to be nurse educators in settings of staff development, patient education, or academia—covering commonalities of teaching that pertain to all three.

References to the most current evidence-based research on effective teaching practices are imbedded throughout the text. This book guides the nurse educator through the entire teaching process, from planning learning to conducting classes, applying traditional teaching methods and innovative technology, both in the classroom and within the context of distance learning platforms. After studying this text, the new (or renewed) nurse educator will be able to teach with a sound understanding of basic learning theory and an excitement about the many approaches she or he can use to achieve desired learning outcomes.
