I kid you not! This is a message we received recently. After pulling my jaw off the floor, my response was: "Then what the hell is a TEACHERS job if it isn't to TEACH?"
Look, I am the first to admit that there are some AMAZING nursing professors out there. At the same time, there are some that simply don't belong in education. .
In the process of gaining my BSN, I took about 220 college credits from 5 universities. I only say that to illustrate that I've seen good and bad . . . some of the things I saw in nursing were the worst of the worst. Some in nursing adopt the "school of hard knocks" approach, "it was hard for me, so it will be hard for you". .
I HATE the flipped classroom approach. You don't teach someone to build an airplane by giving them a wrench. You don't teach a surgeon by handing them a scalpel. Flipped classroom removes too much accountability from the professor.
Rather, we adopt the SODOTO Method. SEE ONE, DO ONE, TEACH ONE. .
Before we expect our nursing students to master content and be amazing nurses we must TEACH THEM. .
Doing and Teaching are the best ways to make information stick, but SEEING must come first. .
This is exactly why the NRSNG Academy exists. We want you to be amazing nurses with DEEP content knowledge. .
I'm sorry (not sorry), but as a TEACHER, your job is to TEACH.
Happy Nursing! -Jon Haws RN
