Nuts & Bolts for Nurse Educators (From Critical Thinking to Clinical Reasoning)

  Nuts & Bolts for Nurse Educators

August 6-9, 2015  •   Minneapolis, Minnesota

Any seasoned nurse educator will tell you that nursing education is a calling. It requires a foundation of evidence-based teaching strategies, a little creativity, and a commitment to excellence in order to be the most successful. During the 7th annual Nuts & Bolts conference, you will not only hear strategies from some of the top nursing educators in the country, but you will work alongside them to improve your classroom, clinical, and lab learning environments. This year’s focus on evidence-based teaching will help with every course in the curriculum. Hands-on activities help you master practical strategies for teaching and learning in fundamentals, maternal-child, medical-surgical, health assessment, and much more. Free Wi-Fi will be available.

Conference Objectives:

Upon completion of the conference, the participant will be able to:
  1. Develop evidence-based connections between clinical, simulation, and classroom learning.
  2. Create classroom and clinical learning activities that promote clinical reasoning.
  3. Develop evidence-based learning experiences based on the NCLEX® client needs.
  4. Identify assessment strategies that provide valid, reliable data for program development.
  5. Identify factors that create barriers to student success in the classroom and on NCLEX®.
  6. Analyze evidence-based tools for developing a culture of student success.
  7. Describe proven strategies to support faculty and curricular success.

Back by popular demand! This year the Tool Box will have over 100 tools mapped to the NCLEX® Test Plan and the QSEN Competencies.
