NURS 6340 - The Nurse Educator: Roles, Responsibilities, and Relationships


(4 sem. cr.) The goal of nurses, in all settings, is to be effective educators who guide and facilitate learning and contribute to the educational goals of the organizations in which they work. Students in this course explore the significance of the educator role as it applies to diverse settings, and they assess associated responsibilities and relationships. They examine concepts related to being change agents and leaders, role socialization, legal and ethical expectations, and professional development. They also explore and discuss nurse educator responsibilities, such as balancing role demands, using evidence to improve teaching, promoting scholarship related to teaching, developing partnerships, and engaging in collaboration and advocacy. Using knowledge gained in previous courses as well as concepts presented in this course, students demonstrate their understanding through various application-based exercises. They also observe the role of a nurse educator in a practice setting and record their learning experiences through journal assignments.
