THE FUTURE OF NURSING EDUCATION AND PATIENT EDUCATION

The Future of Nursing Education and Patient Education
The approaches for instructions are becoming more recursive, leaner-centered, meaningful to fit the perspective of learners, self-directed and non-linear. Therefore, the trend means that the lecture-type or transmission approach of teaching is something of the past (Howell, William and Lindsay 2003).
The nursing education needs to undergo a pedagogical shift in both its distance education and classroom setting by moving from the transmission model to social-cultural, constructivist, and meta-cognitive models so as to maximize the positive trend. The models utilize the computer-mediated communication and emphasize the responsibility of students in learning on their own. The pedagogical shift also means the adoption of advanced technologies that are becoming ubiquitous and versatile. The interactive technologies empower both the learner and instructor. Another strategy of attaining the pedagogical shift is by ensuring that the transfer of information enables the information acquisition by the learner. Faculties will also be expected to develop the learning environment that supports self-learning and knowledge development. Also, the service administrators dissatisfaction on performance for graduates at entry level as well as the nursing leaders demands that support the behaviorist paradigm is an aspect that needs changing.
There is the need to revolutionize the nursing education so as to cultivate and prepare the future nurses in the provision of an effective based and safe care to meet the individual need of clients as well as the patient’s situations. Thus, the nursing values, mission as well as curricular has to reflect a program that promotes learning as a central aspect of student developments. Therefore, learning has to empower nursing students in Praxis, reflection, and effective dialogue. Additionally, revolutionizing nursing pedagogy is a process of transformation from the traditional model that is conservatives in instruction whereby students are passive recipients of information to the critical models which students are involved in the process of empowerment and developing autonomy (Allen, 2010).
