Educators for Educators Series: The Benefits of Remediation
by Karen Haidemenos, MSN, RN | October 28, 2021
It is critical for us as nursing educators to stay up-to-date on trends and innovations in both nursing and teaching so that we can not only prepare our students to be successful on their board exams, but also in their careers in healthcare. As part of Kaplan’s commitment to providing comprehensive resources and support for educators, we were proud to partner with the World Health Organization and Nursing Now to provide mentorship opportunities for a select group of nurse educators during the 2020 Year of the Nurse Nightingale Challenge. In 2021, we are excited to share these resources with you in the form of a monthly “Educators for Educators” video series. This month, we are pleased to present, "The Benefits of Remediation" with Karen Haidemenos, MSN, RN, Kaplan Nurse Consultant.
By the end of this presentation the learner will understand more about how to:
- Define remediation
- Learn techniques to teach remediation
- Identity at-risk students
If there you have any questions about remediation or anything else relating to nursing education, please don’t hesitate to contact your regional representative or to request more information on our website.
Stay tuned for more Kaplan Nursing Educators for Educators videos coming soon!
