Nurse Educator Practicum

NURS 980

This course consists of 180 clock hours of practicum experience and class discussion in nursing education. A preceptor-mentorship model is used in which nurse educators in health care organizations or educational institutions play a substantial role in facilitating the practicum. Under the guidance of a nurse faculty preceptor, the student will develop and implement teaching plans for the classroom and clinical practice settings. Online class discussions provide an opportunity for further exploration of best teaching practices for classroom, clinical practice, self-evaluation, and nursing student evaluation. $500 practicum fee is required.
