Clinical Teaching in Canadian Nursing
Now available in print and PDF!

The second textbook published by CASN.
Co-edited by Dr. Sherri Melrose & Dr. Beth Perry

The Clinical Teaching in Canadian Nursing textbook (disponible en anglais seulement) will provide essential theoretical and practice-focused information for clinical instructors teaching in nursing programs in Canada as they learn to navigate this multifaceted role. Written by experts in clinical teaching from across Canada, this textbook will be of value to both those new to clinical instruction and those who have years of experience but are interested in continually improving their pedagogical knowledge and skills.

Topics range from the historical context of practice-based learning to clinical teaching in various settings including acute care and community. The role of the clinical instructor, the pedagogy of clinical teaching, clinical judgment and reasoning in the clinical setting, and clinical evaluation are all discussed. Finally, the legal and ethical dimensions of clinical instruction are reviewed, and case examples are provided. This content reflects the Canadian Association Schools of Nursing standards for excellence for undergraduate clinical instructors. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on the positive impact an educator’s own commitment to lifelong learning can have on the clinical instructor’s role.
