Teachers of nursing: presenting a new model of practice

By L.M. Burke


In this paper a new model of practice for nurse teachers is presented. In this model the teacher is identified as an advanced practitioner of nursing but, as an advanced practitioner who specialises in education - in all contexts and across all environments where education and training are taking place. It is also a model of practice-based education which is negotiated, balanced and neither dominated by service or by education, it can be seen as responding to the demands of service and higher education, but not dictated by them. It emphasises the importance of clinical practice as an essential part of the role of the teacher because, as nurses we are all involved in the practice of nursing. This paper begins by exploring the main issues that impinge upon and continue to affect the development of the teacher's role. It then examines the teacher's new role in the practice area and as an academic specialist and, finally, looks at the structures and conditions that will be necessary to support this role
