Nurse educators are the key resource in preparing a nursing workforce that will provide quality care to meet the health care needs of our population. Nurse educator jobs can be found in academic and clinical settings, and it is required that they be competent clinicians. However, while being a good clinician is essential, it is not sufficient for nurse educator positions.
Regardless of the setting in which the nurse educator is employed, there is a core of knowledge and skills that is essential if one is to be effective and achieve excellence in the role. That core of knowledge and skills entails the ability to facilitate learning, advance the total development and professional socialization of the learner, design appropriate learning experiences, and evaluate learning outcomes.
The National League for Nursing asserts that the nurse educator role requires specialized preparation and every individual engaged in the academic enterprise must be prepared to implement that role successfully. In addition, each academic unit in nursing must have a cadre of experts in nursing education who provide the leadership needed to advance nursing education, conduct pedagogical research, and contribute to the ongoing development of the science of nursing education.
