Spotlight on NLN Books

The NLN works with members to ensure that the content of our books meets the needs of nurse faculty. Three new publications will be unveiled at NLN Summit 2017 in San Diego:

bullet Critical Conversations: The NLN Guide for Teaching Thinking edited by Susan Gross Forneris, PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE-A and Mary Fey, PhD, RN, CHSE-A

In response to a recommendation from the NLN/INACSL 2015 “Vision for Debriefing Across the Curriculum,” Critical Conversations builds expertise in teaching higher-level reasoning skills using techniques from simulation and debriefing. Integrated knowledge and evidence from diverse fields such as behavioral health, cognitive science, and health care simulation are used to provide steps for nurse educators to engage in thoughtful dialogue with students across the nursing curriculum.

bullet Designing & Creating a Culture of Care for Students and Faculty: The Chamberlain College of Nursing Model edited by Susan L. Groenwald, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF

Though many publications advocate for caring in nursing education, this book and the work it describes is distinguished by its thorough coverage of how caring can be operationalized – and made tangible – in all aspects of a school’s mission, vision, people, processes, and practices.

bullet Roving Leadership: Breaking Through the Boundaries by Sal Tagliareni, PhD and Janice Brewington, PhD, RN, FAAN

Based on the empirical evidence that anyone can be a leader, the theory of roving leadership disputes the notion that leaders are born. This book addresses the myths and boundaries that prevent people from assuming positions of leadership. It provides a unique approach for individuals to reframe their thinking about leadership and how they think of themselves as leaders.

Visit the NLN Bookstore to see the NLN publications currently available such as Marilyn Oermann’s A Systematic Approach to Assessment and Evaluation of Nursing Programs, The NLN Jeffries Simulation Theory, and many more.
