'The information contained in this publication is evidence based and is aimed at developing the future of nursing. It strives to define nursing education while building a sustainable workforce that is versed in evidence based nursing care. The authors describe a strategic plan that focuses on the development of the curricula integrating both theory and practice. A strong focus is dedicated to identifying alternate teaching and learning activities. This book not only includes ideas for curricular content, but it encompasses a focus on leadership in nursing. Transformational outcomes can be developed that are based on education and guided by the curriculum that includes both clinical skills and simulation. The book also offers a list of reasonable assistance for students with disabilities and contains a section on personal support and tutoring of students. The use of technology in nursing education is also a focus of this book and includes a description of the necessary competence in informatics that is currently of great importance for the new graduate nurse. This book is a valuable resource for anyone who teaches nursing at the didactic or clinical level, as well as those involved in curriculum revisions'
