Summary

Achieving Excellence in Nursing Education is based on the National League of Nursing’s Excellence in Nursing Education Model that describes the eight core elements required to achieve and sustain excellence in educational programs: clear program standards, well-prepared faculty, qualified students, well-prepared administrators, evidence-based programs and teaching/evaluation methods, quality and adequate resources, recognition of expertise, and student-centered, interactive and innovative programs and curricula.

 

Each chapter of the book addresses one of the core elements, with the visual depiction of that component of the model noted. Within each chapter, the core element is explored and justification to support its importance in achieving excellence is provided. The text acts as a springboard for nurse educators’ pursuit of excellence in nursing education.
