Inside the program: Demonstrating nurses as teachers

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, October 20, 2009

Component III: Exemplary professional practice addresses the practice of nursing as an independent and interdependent discipline. One of the truly great contributions of the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® has been the need for nurses to examine their practice from a nursing perspective, and an important result of this examination has been the integration of nursing knowledge and theory at the bedside.

Component III encompasses Force of Magnetism 11: Nurses as teachers. Nurses are permitted and expected to incorporate teaching in all aspects of their practice. Teaching gives nurses a great deal of professional satisfaction.

Examples of projects of documents to illustrate nurses as teachers include:

  • Preceptor programs
  • Nurses serving as adjunct faculty members
  • Patient education strategies
  • Community education programs
  • Guest lectures by staff nurses at community events
