Thanks for stopping by my table and checking out my unique clinical reasoning resources!

As a newer nurse educator, it did not take me long to figure out that teaching nursing is hard. But Initiate needed change? Even harder!

Are you like me? Do you too question the status quo and recognize that the traditional model of nursing education is not adequate to prepare students for real-world clinical practice?

You are not alone.

Leading scholar and nurse educator Patricia Benner came to the same conclusion as the primary author of Educating Nurses a Call for Radical Transformation.

The Solution

As a newer nurse educator who remained current in clinical practice, I was an early adopter of the paradigm changes from Educating Nurses.

In response, I created unique clinical reasoning case studies with salient scenarios derived from practice that contextualized content and emphasized clinical reasoning.

My classroom was not only flipped, it was transformed! Now you can access the tools I created and used successfully so you too can bring needed change to your content!
