QSEN Task Force on High-Quality Mathematical Preparation for Nurses
Math Education for Nurses Newsletter
Leader: Nancy Peifer PhD, RN
Description: This task force is available for nurses interested in focusing on the problems and solutions inherent within patient education in the clinical, community and educational setting. Focus is on identifying barriers, creating solutions and setting safe, quality standards for patient education using collaboration and partnerships within the clinical and academic setting. Working together, we can advocate to improve outcomes through engaging patients and families in learner centered education.
Academic Clinical Practice Taskforce: Videos
The purpose of these video vignettes is to address how to deal with students and nursing staff situations both in the on and off campus clinical setting. Many times, situations occur in the clinical setting that may be difficult for faculty because they contain sensitive student’s issues and topics. Each video vignette demonstrates ideal expected behaviors of clinical faculty when dealing with clinical situations. During implementation, it was noted that the videos are especially beneficial for new clinical faculty. The videos have been incorporated during orientation of new and returning clinical adjunct faculty at New York University.
My interested in faculty development started when I took my first job as a part-time clinical faculty member. I quickly learned that part-time clinical nurse instructors routinely have little or no instruction before teaching nursing students in the clinical setting. I also learned they have a significant impact on student learning. I wanted to develop easy to use modules, based on QSEN competencies, to guide part-time faculty in their new role.
