This timely volume in the ""Springer Annual Review of Nursing Education"" series reflects the hottest issues and trends igniting national discourse today. From the lessons nurse educators and students learned from surviving the Gulf coast hurricanes, to the impact of foreign nurses' immigration on American nursing education, this new edition reflects topics on the vanguard of both national and international nursing education concerns. With a focus on clinical nursing education, part one of the ARNE will guide you in using standardized patients and formal mentoring programs in clinical teaching and evaluation of your students. Part two addresses challenges that face educators in nursing, including difficult or confrontational students and the shortage of nursing faculty and part three introduces technological and assessment initiatives to enhance student learning and development. New ideas for nursing education plus current research together in one volume make this new edition a necessary reference and tool for all nursing educators.
