Clinical Nurse Educator Competencies
Teresa Shellenbarger, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF, Editor
Excellence in clinical nursing education is essential in training today’s nursing students.
The first resource of its kind to address this specialized area of expertise, Clinical Nurse Educator Competencies equips educators with a mastery of the evidence-based competencies and tasks needed to confidently guide students through learning experiences in clinical settings and to produce competent nurses ready for practice.
Detailed analysis of each competency synthesizes relevant literature and reflects the insight of the NLN Task Group on Clinical Nurse Educators, providing an authoritative framework to help educators prepare students for the rigors of clinical nursing practice in today’s changing healthcare environment.
“This synthesis and validation of academic clinical nurse educator competencies defines a scope of practice for the role of the academic clinical nurse educator. The results provide a standard of excellence central to the performance expectations associated with this specialized role.”
