NSG 553 - Introductory Nursing Education Practicum/Seminar

This course provides the opportunity for students to apply theories of caring, teaching-learning, and nursing as they are socialized to the role of the nurse educator. With the supervision of a preceptor in selected agencies, students acquire beginning skills in developing teaching plans, identifying appropriate teaching strategies, and communicating information in formal teaching-learning situations. Students are placed in agencies that offer the opportunity for teaching adult learners in academic nursing programs, continuing education, and clinical teaching with practicing nurses in various educational settings. Using academic resources, the student composes bibliographic support for instructional topics, and uses contemporary classroom technologies as instructional materials. A two-hour seminar provides opportunities for students to share their practicum experiences, improve communication skills in presentations and discuss theoretical and practical issues relevant to nursing education. The practicum comprises 240 clinical hours for four credits. The seminar is a one credit course that meets 28 hours class time.
