Educators for Educators Series: Bloom’s Taxonomy
by Jen Moreland, RN MSN | July 19, 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, “Bloom's Taxonomy” with Jennifer Moreland RN, MSN, Kaplan Nurse Consultant.
By the end of this presentation the learner will understand more about how Bloom's Taxonomy is:
- A framework for thinking
- A step-by-step tool for helping students to move beyond memorizing/parroting content to application of content to and beyond
- One of the driving factors in the creation of NCLEX and NGN.
If there you have any questions about Bloom's Taxonomy 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!
