Expert Clinician to Novice Nurse Educator : Learning from First-Hand Narratives (Paperback) (Jeanne
About this item
Research shows that the sharing of personal, first-hand stories not only enhances learning and eases the transition to a new role, but also helps novice educators to understand that their challenges are shared by others. With the goal of improving the experience of nurses making the transition from the role of clinician to that of educator, this unique book presents the findings of a phenomenological study focused on the research question, “What is the lived experience of clinicians as they assume new roles as clinical nurse educators?” These narratives, based on the stories of 32 nurses, describe the challenges they faced and transformations in each nurse’s identity and relationships during the transition process. The text includes recommendations from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a framework for interpreting these stories.
