During the COVID-19 pandemic, nurse educators had to adapt quickly to required changes in nursing education following isolation mandates. Educators worked diligently to provide a quality remote/online educational experience with limited resources.
The purpose of this review was to explore nurse educators' perceptions and self-efficacy toward the transformation from the traditional face-to-face teaching to remote/online teaching and simulation/laboratory modifications in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A scoping review, informed by PRISMA-SCR guidelines, was performed in PubMed, Web of Science, CINAHL Complete, OVID MEDLINE, and Google Scholar.
There were 34 articles included in the final review, with 7 themes identified: teaching pedagogy, technology challenges, online teaching role, learning environment, leadership, clinical education, and well-being.
The review is relevant to nursing faculty across the globe. Planning for future pandemics should include self-care, use of evidence-based practices, protocols, and increased communication.
