Nurse Educator Competencies: Creating An Evidence-Based Practice For Nurse Educators is a compelling critical synthesis of the research related to educator competencies. Drawing on literature in nursing and many other fields, the authors present an analysis of the work done to date regarding each competency (e.g., facilitate learning, use assessment and evaluation strategies), draws conclusions about what we do and do not know related to that area of practice, and proposes priorities for future research related to that competency. This book grew out of the intensive work of the NLN’s Task Group on Nurse Educator Competencies and is an essential resource for every faculty member and an invaluable source of information and insight for students in master’s or doctoral teacher preparation programs.


·        Priorities for Future Research section at the end of most chapters present questions to help encourage thought and potential research that will enhance understanding of nurse educator competencies.

·        Chapters open with explanations of the core competencies of a nurse educator so readers have a quick reference and brief overview before chapter content
