TODAY WE ARE GOING TO ASK OURSELVES, WHY WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING?
WHAT ARE WE?
WE ARE PROFESSIONAL NURSES
WE CAN WORK IN THE HOSPITAL, COMMUNITY OR IN COLLEGE
IN HOSPITAL WE PREPARE SUDENTS FOR
Promotion of wellness. Prevention of illness. Restoration of health. Facilitation of coping abilities.
AND THE BENEFITS ARE
Improved quality of care. Shorter length of hospital stays. Decreased chance of hospital
readmission. Greater compliance with prescribed
IN COMMUNITYWE PREPARE STUDENTS TO
wear many hats while conducting day-to-day practice. The focus of nursing includes not only the individual, but also the family and the community, meeting these multiple needs requires multiple roles.
Play seven major roles as a community health nurse such as
1. Care provider. "Clinician role". 2. Educator. 3. Advocate. 4. Manager. 5. Collaborator. 6. Leader. 7.Researcher.
In the college we prepare the students to become both
So in the college we really have a major role in producing good quality nurse and future nurse educator
A professional teacher is one who
makes learning attractive
The mediocre teacher tells

Teaching Strategies and Learning Materials that Would Be Most Appropriate for the Nurse Educator?
Effective Teaching Strategies
Selected Strategies for Successful TrainingsPrinciples of Adult Learning.Active Learning.Instructional Strategies.
Principles of Adult Learning
• Need to know how adults learn best.
• Adult learners have special needs.
• Six characteristics of adult learners.
Adult Learners . . .
• Are autonomous and self-directed.• Have a foundation of life
experiences and knowledge.• Are goal-oriented.• Are relevancy-oriented.• Are practical.• Need to be shown respect.
Ask: How many of you learn best through lecture?This pyramid demonstrates the proportion of people who learn best from selected instructional methodologies. Most of us learn best when we’re actively involved in the learning process (discussion groups, practice, teaching others).

• Quiz.• Games.• Role-playing.• Brainstorming.• Group problem-solving.• Lecture.
Nurse students must have material that they can rely on for reference. Although the Internet can be a good source of general information, it's hard to tell which sites come from reputable sources and which do not. Nursing textbooks teach students about procedures and diseases, knowledge of which is essential to practice.
Students should purchase a medical dictionary, books about anatomy, nursing diagnosis books, and any materials that are specific to their field of interest.
Nursing is about more than diagnosis and following procedures. It's about treating patients and co-workers with respect. Future nurses should learn how to act in a variety of situations. Role-play is a great way for practice.
For example, you can role-play how to treat a patient who is refusing treatment or what to do when you disagree with a doctor's diagnosis.
Simulations and Clinical Experience
When it comes to actual procedures, such as taking blood pressure, setting up monitors, or giving injections, hands-on practice is essential.
When possible, you can use simulations, such as performing CPR on a dummy. In other situations, nurses must learn to do things in the field. Stand by while a young nurse performs certain procedures on real patients.
Case studies are a great way for nursing students to practice diagnosing patients without worrying about making a major mistake.
Use case studies to challenge students. They'll learn about a patient's symptoms and try to determine what the problem may be. You can also use case studies in a role-playing situation. Give each student in the class a copy of a case study. They must then partner up with another student. One student pretends to be ill, based on the symptoms in the case study, while the other makes the diagnosis. Then, students switch places.
