3 Credit Hours
This course translates theory and concepts of education to the practice of the nurse educator role in an academic or clinical practice setting. Guided by a nursing faculty member, students participate in simulated learning situations and collaborate with experts in the field to explore the classroom and/or laboratory activities, examine the organizational structure of the setting, attend meetings, interview nurse educators about the challenges and rewards related to the role, interview various members of the academic community, and develop a plan for the continuation of the practicum experience in NR-640. Students are expected to devote 45 hours at the practicum placement site over the term.
