The Leadership, Management, and Policy in Nursing Educator Interest Group presents

Building Nursing Leadership Education to Support Academic- Practice Partnerships

Ce webinaire est offert en anglais seulement.

Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2024

Time: 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. EDT


Positive student-instructor relationships are key for student engagement, motivation, and achievement. COVID-19, individual lifestyle changes, economic constraints, and advanced technologies have enabled students to learn at home, and increased class sizes have placed significant pressures on these relationships.  This webinar and panel presentation explores the challenges and opportunities of the student-instructor relationship in the context of nursing leadership education and various learning modalities. The focus will be on learning more about who the current leadership student is, and the pressures student nurses face to strengthen the student-instructor relationship to enhance student engagement in the classroom. In addition, the nurse manager perspective will highlight the transition experiences of graduate nurses and workforce integration. Panel speakers will be faculty/instructors, nurse manager and undergraduate students.

Free webinar: Embracing ChatGPT in Education and Practice

Date: Friday, May 10, 2024

Time: 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT


An inspiring webinar designed to empower nurse educators across various settings. As technology rapidly advances, healthcare delivery, education, and research are undergoing a paradigm shift. This webinar aims to keep you at the forefront of these changes by focusing on the integration of AI and large language models (LLMs), using ChatGPT as an example in nursing education and practice. During this webinar, practical applications of ChatGPT in classroom teaching, clinical education, simulation, and lab environments, as well as its role in general nursing practice, will be demonstrated using live demos and exemplars, providing a thought-provoking experience of how ChatGPT can be effectively utilized in each of these areas. Ce webinaire est offert en anglais seulement.
