    NLN Core Competencies for Nurse Educators:
    A Decade of Influence

    Judith A. Halstead, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, Editor

    Thirteen years after initial publication, the NLN Core Competencies for Nursing Educators continue to guide the development of graduate nursing programs, define the roles and responsibilities of nurse educators, and provide a framework for ongoing research in identifying the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential to preparing a qualified nursing workforce.

    NLN Core Competencies for Nurse Educators: A Decade of Influence revisits these critical guidelines through a contemporary lens that underscores their ongoing influence and offers valuable insight into how they will help shape the evolution of the nurse educator role. Whether you’re a practicing nurse educator or pursuing a career in nursing education, you’ll gain a better understanding of the theoretical foundation behind this landmark literature and learn how to best use it to successfully navigate the complex role of today’s nursing faculty.

    “Nurse educators, grounded by the current evidence about the role of the nurse educator, will ensure that the next generation of students is prepared to provide interdisciplinary, patient-focused, safe, and high-quality care.”
