NSG6203 South University Teaching Plan Nursing Discussion

This is her Notes for the discussion.

  • As you plan and implement your teaching plan, I am reminded by the challenges that new nurse educators must face. There are multiple competencies that a new nurse educator must master. Billings and Halstead (2012) list multiple competencies such as: (a) knowledge skills,and values needed to fulfill the nurse educator role, (b) curriculum development, (c) evaluating student outcomes, (d) professional practice, (e) relationships with students and colleagues, (f) faculty governance, and (g) scholarship. Many times, nurse educators are thrust into the nurse educator role with little or no mentoring. Academia often believes that since we are expert clinicians, we can educate students. Rarely is that the case.This transition can be confusing, frustrating, and anxiety provoking to a new nurse educator. Without the proper mentoring and orientation in place, nurse educators often leave prematurely. Because we overestimate the abilities of a new nurse educator, academia can fail us. Nurse educators may not develop to their fullest potential, resulting in students who are shortchanged. Given the proper development, both faculty and students will reap the benefits.Christina, it sounds as if you have an excellent preceptor. I am looking forward to reading about the implementation of your teaching plan. ReferenceBillings, D. & Halstead, J. (2016). Teaching in nursing: A guide for faculty. St. Louis, MO: Elsevier.

Reflective Discussion

Share your revised teaching plan and discuss your experiences in development of the plan. Tie your discussion to your QSEN, IOM recommendations, personal goals, course objectives, NLN Nurse Educator competencies, and South University’s College of Nursing Conceptual Framework Pillars (Caring, Communication, Critical Thinking, Professionalism, and Holism).

Be sure you write this journal “off-line” and then copy/paste to this discussion forum (do not upload as a Word document). This will be something you will want to look back at as you progress forward in your upcoming role as a nurse educator.
