This 2-day workshop is designed to provide foundational information for nurses who are planning to seek, or have recently accepted, positions as faculty teaching nursing students in clinical settings.

  • Morning sessions deal with general content essential for the role.

The workshop is funded in part by NSPII Grant #20-123.


By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • discuss a philosophy of clinical teaching as a contextual factor affecting teaching and learning;
  • describe the process of clinical teaching;
  • compare and contrast effective teaching strategies within the context of the clinical environment;
  • discuss aspects of assessing learners’ clinical performance;
  • define a personal philosophy of clinical teaching and learning;
  • discuss key elements of learner and faculty preparation;
  • align learner and course objectives with clinical learning opportunities;
  • communicate learner performance through verbal techniques;
  • apply feedback techniques to clinical learning situations;
  • compare methods for formative and summative evaluation of clinical performance; and
  • identify legal and ethical aspects of the clinical instructor role.
