E-Learning in Nursing - new book

E-Learning in Nursing. Sally Glen and Pam Moule (Eds) :

This new book to be published by Palgrave in May 2006 provides some interesting challenges which contribute to the theory and practice of the use of elearning in nurse education.

I should declare a bias as I co-authored one of the chapters.

Description

Distance-learning has always been important in nursing and recent health policy initiatives have identified IT as key to professional development. However, to date there has been little written on e-learning specifically from a nursing perspective. This latest addition to the Nurse Education in Practice series supports nursing and healthcare lecturers and facilitators as they develop and deliver e-learning courses. It discusses both theory and practice, and will contribute to the debate about e-learning's future within the healthcare spectrum.
