The challenges in Clinical Nursing Education today have multiplied over the last several months with all of the chaos and change in the world! Clinical instructors (CIs) are needed more than ever, particularly considering the demands of our healthcare settings in light of COVID-19. Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) has designed a conference that - over the past 12 years - has helped many CIs be better prepared for their roles and responsibilities, as well as the dynamics of the healthcare arena. We hope you will join us for the 2020 CI Intensive!

The Intensive, designed to be presented virtually this year, will address key clinical topics for clinical educators of healthcare disciplines students and be led by a talented and experienced group of full-time faculty and clinical nurse educators who teach in our health education programs.

This Intensive will provide an opportunity for faculty and CIs to examine their current clinical teaching strategies and develop new ways to strengthen clinical education for pre-licensure and graduate health education students. We will also explore ways to transition from clinical educator to a full-time faculty position. Finally, we will round out the day with strategies to find life balance in the midst of our world.

2020 Clinical Instructor Intensive Objectives

Upon successful completion of the CI Intensive, participants are able to:

  • Optimize the student clinical experience during change.
  • Implement best practices for direct and indirect clinical teaching (Pre-licensure/ APRN).
  • Utilize concrete strategies for teaching student skill acquisition in a virtual platform.
  • Transition from the role of Clinical Instructor to Faculty Member.
  • Maintain life balance in the midst of chaos and change.
