The core of On Revolutions & Revolutionaries: 25 Years of Reform and Innovation in Nursing Education is six original essays published by the NLN during curriculum revolution of the 1980s/1990s. The work provides a glimpse into how our leaders thought about ways in which nursing education needed to be reformed and examines the progress made in nursing education since then, and proposes future directions in the field.
Many of the original authors include reflections on the original works and our current state of nursing education. Other contemporary chapters have been added to enhance the forward-looking nature of this book. The collection inspires the reader to reflect on the progress that has been made in transforming nursing education toward a student-centered, interactive, evidence-based practice and to think about what needs to be done to create a preferred future for nursing education. As such, this book is an important resource for faculty and for graduate students preparing for the faculty role.
