Influencing nursing education .For this assessment, you will analyze how educational innovations are influencing nursing education and how you, as a nurse educator, can use these innovations to create a rich learning environment for your students.
You will begin this assessment by identifying a course that you will develop. This course could be used in a formal academic setting, or it could be used by a nurse educator in a clinical setting.
As part of your assessment, you will analyze an educational innovation and its effect on student outcomes. You will use current literature to provide examples of how the innovation is currently being used in organizations, and how they have benefited from this innovation.
A. Identify one of the following educational innovations that you will use to impact student outcomes in your course:
• MOOC (Massive Open Online Course)
• adaptive learning technologies
• simulation/gaming strategies
• flipped classroom setting
• inquiry-based learning
1. Discuss how two organizations are currently using the innovation chosen in part A, using credible sources.
Note: Credible sources include scholarly articles from reputable sources, including peer reviewed journals and publications, published within the past five years, and websites from professional organizations or governmental web sites (American Nurses Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, US Census Bureau).

My Nursing Ethic
After reading the Topic 1 materials, complete the questionnaire titled, “My Nursing Ethic.”
Complete the questions below:
PASSION: Why am I here?
MOTIVATION: What moves me to act?
INSPIRATION: What keeps me in motion?
LOYALTY: Whom do I serve?
Using the reading and the questionnaire, write a paper of 750-1,000 words in which you describe your professional moral compass. As you write your paper, include the following:
What personal, cultural, and spiritual values contribute to your worldview and philosophy of nursing?
How do these values shape or influence your nursing practice?
Define values, morals, and ethics in the context of your obligation to nursing practice. Explain how your personal values, philosophy, and worldview may conflict with your obligation to practice, creating an ethical dilemma.
How do your personal views affect your behavior and your decision making?
Do not be concerned with the use of ethical terminology for this paper.
The learning needs of doctoral nursing students
“Influencing nursing education”
Learning objectives lay the foundation for a lesson. As the quote above alludes to, they (learning objectives) provide not only a starting point, but also a destination. When crafted meaningfully, learning objectives can provide nurse educators with measurable and observable behaviors. In addition, when communicated early, often, and clearly, learning objectives can better address student, staff, and patient learning needs.
Learning needs, or gaps in knowledge, range from concepts and attitudes to psychomotor skills. In addition, the learning needs of baccalaureate nursing students will differ greatly from the learning needs of doctoral nursing students. Likewise, the learning needs of cardiac patients will differ from those of diabetic patients. In effect, the learning experiences in which each audience engages must be carefully and meaningfully tailored towards their specific needs.
· Select an audience of learners (nursing students, nursing staff, or patients) that you are interested in teaching.
· Reflect on the diverse learning needs of this specific audience and select one to further investigate for your Discussion*.
· Writing Learning Objectives
Review the article, Writing Learning Objectives that Help You Teach and Students Learn (Part 1), and the links to the Lesson Plan Tutorials, which are located in this week’s Learning Resources. Reflect on the examples and non-examples of action verbs. Then, consider the action verbs that you might select to address the identified learning need.
· Review the Crafting Learning Objectives document, which is located in this week’s Learning Resources.
