NURS 7051: Clinical Immersion for Nurse Educators (3)

Lecture: 0, Lab: 3, Other: 0

The student is provided with an opportunity to select a clinical nursing education setting, appropriate to their area of clinical expertise, for their practicum. Clinical expertise can be demonstrated through certification, extensive/supervisory experience, and/or substantive current continuing education. The student works with an approved preceptor/s to gain hands on experience in their role as an expert clinician and as a nurse educator in the clinical setting. Scholarly exploration of their role is expected through the use of evidenced based practice and educational standards and professional engagement. A seminar for faculty and student exchange and discussion of student experiences and critique of contemporary issues is included as a component of the practicum.
