Students are expected to write a paper explaining the teaching process; this paper is NOT about what you would teach to a client or what a
certain type of client would need to learn (do not select and write about a client with diabetes, breastfeeding issues, congestive heart
failure, COPD, etc.).
You are expected to begin your paper by going directly into a discussion of the role of the RN in teaching and the importance of teaching. This
information is available on your textbook and on ATI. The paper should then proceed to explain the teaching process in depth; the teaching
process is approached in the same way as all nursing care is approached… via the nursing process (assessment, diagnosis, planning,
implementation, and evaluation). Your paper will describe each of the processes in detail so that a new nurse could read your paper and begin to
implement the process.
Required preparation for writing this paper: students must read chapter 15 in the course textbook and complete the assigned ATI module on client
teaching. Students are required to search CINAHL or similar database to locate one peer-reviewed nursing journal article on client teaching as a
reference (more than one peer-reviewed reference should not be used; this paper is to demonstrate student knowledge of the teaching process
following completion of ATI module and assigned reading). You will however cite your required online resource for client-teaching (see rubric)
and if cited in the paper, your textbook.
