Nursing Education provides a strategic guide and practical focus to curriculum planning and development. It will help all those involved in the provision of nursing education to understand the issues involved at the different stages of preparing a nursing curriculum which: - meets both professional and academic requirements; - integrates theory and practice; - enables students to achieve the skills and competencies they need for professional practice; - includes different methods of teaching and learning; - provides clear guidance for student selection and assessment. Balancing theoretical principles with practical application, and linked closely to the NMC's 2010 standards for pre-registration nursing, Jennifer Boore and Pat Deeny illustrate clearly and accessibly how to develop tailored education programmes so that nurse educators and clinicians in practice can enable their students to provide up-to-date and appropriate patient care.

For all nursing programs The state-of-the-art three-volume, concept-based, student-centered introduction to nursing focuses on 51 indispensable biophysical professional and healthcare concepts; and more than 435 nursing skills. Today, nurses must be able to transfer their knowledge to new situations, and stay current with new disorders, treatments, and evidence-based practice. Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, Volumes I-III, Second Edition with MyNursingLab for Concepts will help them achieve all these goals. Its concept-based approach requires students to participate actively, assume more responsibility for their knowledge, integrate concepts, apply information, and use clinical reasoning. Instead of memorizing thousands of alterations, students gain in-depth knowledge of selected alterations, and learn how to apply that knowledge as new challenges and client presentations come their way. VOLUME I: The first of three volumes, the fully-updated Volume I focuses on 21 crucial biophysical concepts: acid-base balance; cellular regulation; comfort; digestion; elimination; fluids/electrolytes; health, wellness, and illness; immunity; infection; inflammation; intracranial regulation; metabolism; mobility; nutrition; oxygenation; perfusion; perioperative care; sensory perception; sexuality; thermoregulation, and tissue integrity. These concepts are illuminated with nearly 100 exemplars covering the entire lifespan. VOLUME II: The second of two volumes, the fully-updated Volume II focuses on 30 crucial concepts every nurse needs to master. It begins with several Psychosocial Modules covering addiction, cognition, culture/diversity, development, family, grief/loss, mood/affect, self, spirituality, stress/coping, and violence. After focusing on reproduction, it turns to the nursing domain, covering assessment, caring interventions, clinical decision making, collaboration, communication, care management, professional behaviors, and client teaching/learning. Finally, it turns to the nurse's broader roles, focusing on accountability, advocacy, evidence-based practice, healthcare systems, health policy, informatics, legal issues, quality improvement, and safety. The 30 concepts included in Volume II are illuminated with more than 80 exemplars covering the entire lifespan. CONSISTENT PEDAGOGY FOR IMPROVED KNOWLEDGE RETENTION: Volume I and II in the textbook series have an updated concept-level template that presents each concept and exemplar in the same manner: Each CONCEPT follows the following template: Normal Presentation - Developmental Considerations - Alterations - Related Concepts - Physical Assessment - Diagnostic Tests - Interventions & Therapies Each EXEMPLAR follows the following template: Overview - Pathophysiology and Etiology - Clinical Manifestations and Therapies - Nursing Process - Nursing Care Plan - Relate and Reflect VOLUME III: The only skills book of its kind, Clinical Nursing Skills: A Concept-Based Approach, Volume III, 2nd edition is designed to meet the specific needs and approach of concept-based nursing programs in teaching key nursing skills. Clinical Nursing Skills: A Concept-based Approach presents more than 435 of the most important skills performed by nurses including common variations. This second edition has been revised, restructured, and updated to reflect the most current nursing practices and standards. Each skill is characterized by an overarching concept and is presented in exceptional step-by-step detail with beautiful, real-life illustrations, which help students visualize exactly how each skill is completed. MyNursingLab for Concepts MyNursingLab for Conceptsis an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program that truly engages students in learning, and is designed to support the concepts and exemplars included in Volumes I and II of Nursing: A Concept-based Approach to Learning, 2e. MyNursingLab for Concepts helps students review, remember, and apply key concepts–resulting in better performance in the course–and provides educators with a dynamic set of tools for gauging individual and class progress. 0133937364 / 9780133937367 Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning Volume I, I, III Plus MyNursingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0132934264 / 9780132934268 Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, Volume I 0132934272 / 9780132934275 Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning, Volume II 0133351793 / 9780133351798 Clinical Nursing Skills: A Concept-Based Approach Volume III 0133926842 / 9780133926842 MyNursingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card -- for Nursing: A Concept-Based Approach to Learning

This entirely new edition of a very successful book focuses on developing professional academic skills for supporting and supervising student learning and effective teaching. It is built on the premise that the roles of those who teach in higher education are complex and multi-faceted. A Handbook for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is sensitive to the competing demands of teaching, research, scholarship, and academic management. The new edition reflects and responds to the rapidly changing context of higher education and to current understanding of how to best support student learning. Drawing together a large number of expert authors, it continues to feature extensive use of case studies that show how successful teachers have implemented these ideas. It includes key topics such as student engagement and motivation, internationalisation, employability, inclusive strategies for teaching, effective use of technology and issues relating to postgraduate students and student retention. Part 1 explores a number of aspects of the context of UK higher education that affect the education of students, looking at the drivers of institutional behaviours and how to achieve success as a university teacher. Part 2 examines learning, teaching and supervising in higher education and includes chapters on working with diversity, encouraging independent learning and learning gain. Part 3 considers approaches to teaching and learning in different disciplines, covering a full range including arts and humanities, social sciences, experimental sciences through to medicine and dentistry. Written to support the excellence in teaching and learning design required to bring about student learning of the highest quality, this will be essential reading for all new lecturers, particularly anyone taking an accredited course in teaching and learning in higher education, as well as those experienced lecturers who wish to improve their teaching practice. Those working in adult learning and educational development will also find the book to be a particularly useful resource. In addition it will appeal to staff who support learning and teaching in various other roles.

Dedicated Education Units Building a Better Future

This book provides an in-depth insight into the Dedicated Education Units (DEU) clinical learning strategy. It shows how DEUs work and explains the concept, philosophy, principles, practical implementation and first-hand experiences of this ground-breaking, global work-integrated learning strategy. It presents the benefits of DEUs and offers insight into how DEUs can provide real options for solving the increasingly complex dilemma of providing more students with more experiences of hands-on practice while reducing costs and ensuring greater numbers of work ready graduates. The book serves as a reference for nurse student education and is particularly salient for those setting up a DEU. It can be used as a springboard for work-integrated learning innovations for all practice-based disciplines. Dedicated Education Units (DEU) provide a flexible clinical learning strategy with a focus on founding principles and adaptation to different clinical contexts rather than a concrete model for clinical learning. DEUs are essentially clinical environments in which students develop a sense of security to explore learning opportunities, knowing there are people present who will ensure they do not make intractable errors; people who will guide and support them to achieve optimal learning. Whilst developed initially for nurse education, DEUs can be adapted to other professional learning settings.

The World Health Organization has developed these Nurse Educator Core Competencies to enable educators to effectively contribute to the attainment of high quality education, and the production of effective, efficient and skilled nurses who are able to respond to the health needs of the populations they serve. This will enable the attainment of objectives one and two of the Global strategy on human resources for health: Workforce 2030 and is also a priority in the updated Global strategic directions on nursing and midwifery 2016-2020. The aim of this publication is to provide a clear outline of Nurse Educator Core Competencies and performance expectations, which can form the basis for developing a competence-based curriculum encompassing the cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills and behaviors expected of nurse teachers. The competencies are intended to help guide the educational preparation of nurse teachers; ensure educational quality and accountability; and, ultimately, contribute to improving the provision of nursing care and outcomes of health services. Much effort has gone into the preparation of the Nurse Educator Core Competencies. It is the aim of the World Health Organization that they will facilitate nurse educators to attain increased proficiency in assisting student nurses to acquire all the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to practice nursing effectively in the 21st century.

Leading Change, Advancing Health

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.
