NURS 641LA Education Teaching Practicum

This course, which covers two terms, is designed as a teaching practicum where students are placed in schools of nursing, staff development or client education settings that are not a part of their current job.  The course provides an opportunity for the application of teaching and learning theory to nursing education, where students use evidence-based practice to implement quality, culturally competent teaching to address the learning needs and goals of the individuals and groups in academic or service settings.  This practicum includes time with the mentor, class and clinical observation time, class and clinical preparation time, and actual classroom teaching and clinical supervision time.  Mentors must have a minimum of a MSN degree.
