Teach and mentor the next generation of nurses. Tailor the learning experience to your student nurses. Coach an anxious student through their first catheter insertion; provide a more experienced and confident student with a challenge that will help them learn new skills; select learning opportunities which help students build on their strengths and overcome personal or scholastic limitations. Provide regular feedback and advice to your students to help improve their practice. Keep the practicing nursing staff abreast of new industry developments. Be a role model to your students, ensuring they are prepared for a constantly changing health care environment. Lecture in the classroom and in clinical settings. Teach them to perform basic nursing tasks such as medication administration, dressing changes or other hands-on skills under your direct supervision. Watch them move into real life clinical settings under supervision and ongoing tuition, as they work with the patients at a new hospital with first-class facilities and equipment. Work alongside other clinical educators who have already been working in the local hospital environment for a number of years.
