A Timely Text That Fills a Gap in Nursing Education

The increase of online nursing education programs has furthered the need for nursing faculty to have specific preparation for online teaching. Drawing from the authors’ extensive experience teaching online nursing education programs, Online Nursing Education: A Collaborative Approach is unlike any other text. It was written and designed for faculty teaching online post-licensure students in a nursing education degree program, post-master’s certificate program, advanced practice program, or other advanced education-related degree programs. This unique text takes a theoretical approach and includes practical examples as well as sample curriculum, course design, and policies. Topics covered include strategies for teaching online, learning through writing in an online classroom, experiential learning in online programs, generational differences in online learning, and more practical discussions backed by evaluation studies and qualitative research.

This timely resource fills a gap in nursing education with an approach and content that are driven by educational theory, best practices in online education, and learner needs as opposed to technology and cost as drivers of online education. Online Nursing Education: A Collaborative Approach will ensure nurse educators and graduate students in nursing education programs have the required knowledge, training, and mentorship to effectively teach online and develop high quality online education programs.
