Innovative approaches to clinical nursing education are clearly needed in this era of patient complexity, technology and informatics, limited student clinical placements, and demands for learning experiences outside of traditional acute-care settings. Business as usual in clinical nursing education is not an adequate response to the challenges that nursing educators face today. This article addresses two commissioned papers written on nursing education for Transformational Models of Nursing Across Different Settings, an effort by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellows program to find solutions to the challenges facing the nursing profession.
