The NCLEX Next Generation project is based on an integrative Clinical Judgment Model with 6 well-defined cognitive steps. Authors explain the importance of integrating a clinical judgment model throughout the curriculum, using realistic clinical scenarios, and having students work through the steps of a selected model. Civility, psychological safety, and effective stress management are essential for learning. Use the PAAIL communication method, a conversational strategy to minimize students’ stress and optimize their learning. A mixed method study reported in this issue describes the outcomes of deliberate practice and simulation for developing and retaining psychomotor skills. Consistent with our mission, other articles present innovative teaching approaches and methods you can use in your courses.
