The revolution of nursing pedagogy: a transformational process

Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 5, Number 1 ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


Nursing education is an evolutionary process that has experienced a metamorphosis through different pedagogies from an apprenticeship model in the exclusive clinical setting to a holistic model in the college setting. Recent developments in adult education and research have strongly influenced the need to revolutionize nursing education to cultivate future nurses who can provide safe, effective care based on the individual client needs and their situations. Nursing missions, values, and curricula should reflect a program that promotes learning as the center of student development. Learning empowers nursing students to engage in reflection, praxis, and effective dialogue. However, the revolution of nursing pedagogy involves a transformational process from the traditional conservative model of instruction where the student is the passive recipient of information to a critical model where the student is engaged in the process of developing autonomy and empowerment. To meet these requirements for the future generation of nurses, leaders will be challenged to create a paradigm shift in nursing pedagogy using a transformational process among faculty and students in the organization.
