The Sage Handbook of Nursing Education

First Edition
Edited by:

May 2024 | 648 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
In the past several years, a revival of research devoted to nursing education has emerged. This emergence has changed the way many educators engage in their practice of working with learners; and learners have come to expect that they will have a rich learning experience designed to develop new (or enhance prior) knowledge, skills, and attitudes.

The Sage Handbook of Nursing Education provides a detailed map of the current discipline, with a carefully selected team of international contributors offering the latest thinking about education in nursing across key areas:

PART 1: The Development of Education for Nursing 
PART 2: Curriculum Development and Programme Design
PART 3: Educational Strategies and their Application: Academic and Practice
PART 4: Educational Research and Scholarship: Academic and Practice     

This Handbook will be a key resource for academic educators, as well as graduate and postgraduate learners.
