USAID Economic Development Program (SABEQ) and Jordanian Nursing Council (JNC) conducted a Training of Trainers Workshop entitled Item Writing and Clinical Teaching and Evaluation which comes to reflect efforts of JNC to enhance the overall quality of nursing education in Jordan.
The four days workshop aimed to build national expertise in the field of item test writing, and clinical teaching knowledge and skills. Such expertise in the teaching and assessment of nursing students will promote nursing students growth and development and ensure that the graduates are prepared to provide quality healthcare services and to protect the health, safety and welfare of the Jordanian public.
Attending the workshop were forty faculties from different nursing schools and a number of clinical nurses working in continuous education in Jordan. Each attendee will put a program to disseminate the information presented at the workshop to other colleagues in their institutions.
