Description

Giving Through Teaching presents compelling stories of nurse educators and their students who have given their time, talents, skills, and resources to make the world a better place. Sharing stories from more than 70 nurse educators, this unique book inspires nurses to continue the work of their peers and to tell their own stories.

Highlighting the efforts of U.S. nurse educators both at home and abroad-from areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina to Iraq-the text showcases the diversity of the nursing profession itself. This collection of stories also examines how the knowledge and expertise of nurse educators can help to improve health care standards and achieve the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), such as improving maternal health and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.

A must-have book for current and future generations of nurse educators, Giving Through Teaching:

  • Explores global- and U.S.-based education partnerships, with stories of nurses working to improve schools, hospitals, and communities around the world
  • Helps readers build interpersonal relationships with others
  • Includes stories from nurse educators who have been honored by their peers, including Legends of the American Academy of Nursing and recipients of the International Council of Nurses International Achievement Award
  • Will contribute funds raised from book sales to scholarships for future nursing students through the NLN Foundation (NLNF)
