Clinical Education During the Pandemic: Innovations, Challenges, & Opportunities
Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
Category: Education

Nurse educators were abruptly confronted with unprecedented clinical education disruption due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Academic leaders had to pivot to maintain instructional continuity as lockdowns and restrictions were enacted.  Preparing nurses for the workforce could not be more important than it is today with the many factors facing the nursing profession. This webinar features a panel discussion from nursing leaders in the academic arena, healthcare practice environments, and the Virginia Board of Nursing. Panelists discuss the challenges and opportunities in both the academic and practice environments and how these have led to innovations in clinical education at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Speakers will address questions regarding instructional continuity and best practices.

This webinar is presented as a collaborative of the Virginia Nurses Association, Virginia Association of Colleges of Nursing, and Virginia Organization of Nurse Executives and Leaders.
