Slide Stating The Practice Apprenticeship

Health Impact Series: The Practice Apprenticeship Part 1



Our series with with Dr. Garrett Chan commemorating the anniversary of the publication of Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation concludes with these presentations from two outstanding educators who have insights on improving the Practice Apprenticeship in these challenging times of the Covid Pandemic. We begin with a critique of the Nursing Process as a clinical reasoning model and talk about how Practice Apprenticeship can support the development of the kinds of clinical reasoning that more closely match how nurses clinically think and reason and make nursing graduates more “practice-ready.”

Dr. Carol Durham from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hills discusses her work to improve the simulation of clinical reasoning amid diminished clinical access to patients during the international COVID Pandemic. She points out the importance of using story,  first-person-experience-near narratives, that describe situated thinking in action and knowledge use. She calls for improvement in nursing education to provide more opportunities for practice apprenticeships that teach understanding of whole clinical situations, a sense of salience and situated thinking-in-action.
