  • Description
  • Objectives
  • Presenters
Adjunct and new clinical faculty often come to nursing education as expert practitioners with a strong value for student learning. Because of their clinical expertise, full-time administrators and faculty may assume they are fully prepared to teach. It is critical that adjunct and new clinical faculty have the information they need to fully partner with academic institutions to meet the program outcomes and produce safe graduate nurses. This webinar focuses on the characteristics and learning needs of adjunct and other new clinical faculty by presenting an evidence-based model of mentorship for new faculty and a variety of strategies that academic institutions and individual mentors can use to enhance integration and effective teaching.

  • Identify some characteristics and needs of adjuncts and new clinical faculty.
  • Apply a mentorship model to determine best practices for facilitating faculty orientation and integration.
  • Describe several practical strategies to help adjunct and new clinical faculty be effective facilitators of learning for nursing students.

Kathie Lasater, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN

Kathie_Lasater_EdD_RN_ANEF_FAANKathie Lasater is a professor at Oregon Health & Science University on the Portland campus and teaches undergraduates and graduates. She was one of the first researchers to focus on simulation research, specifically how simulation impacts the development of clinical judgment. One of the outcomes of her research was the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric, a widely-known and -used assessment tool. Ten years after its publication, the rubric has gone global—it has been translated or is in process of translation in 12 languages. Her clinical judgment research focus has extended to new graduates’ transition into practice. Dr. Lasater’s research and educational practice has resulted in over 40 publications. She is returning in September from a 4-month Fulbright Research Scholarship in the UK.

Together, Drs. Nielsen and Lasater have co-authored the chapter about clinical judgment in three editions of the text, Concepts for Nursing Practice.
