Teaching and Learning

This course focuses on teaching/learning theories and strategies used by professional nurses to meet individual, family and community education needs. The nursing process provides a basis for planning, implementing, and evaluating teaching. The effectiveness of the baccalaureate nurse's teaching on client readmissions, quality client outcomes, and health care costs is emphasized. Students analyze content, reading levels, and quality of print, web and other materials and redesign resources as appropriate. In addition, students will examine the impact of aging and co-morbid conditions on learning ability as well as age appropriate teaching strategies. A health promotion project allows students to practice and demonstrate teaching skills and techniques.
