Description

Highlights and Benefits

In these challenging times, nursing educators are under constant pressure to produce well-qualified graduates who can think critically and provide safe, high-quality care. New demands on curriculum content continue to emerge from multiple stakeholders from inside and outside the profession. Innovative teaching techniques that help students understand and apply content to their practice are demanded. Technologies help move students toward competent clinical practice but costs must be carefully justified as school budgets are shrinking, so using new technologies to their fullest capabilities is essential. The day-to-day demands of teaching, along with work on committees and work with individual students, takes its toll on both seasoned and new faculty. Join us in Orlando for a tune-up and opportunity to meet colleagues from across the nation that are working with similar challenges and find innovative solutions that may readily apply to
your work.
