Earn While You Learn Clinical Education Model Toolkit

Developed by Eileen L. Dohmann MBA, BSN, RN, and Patti Lisk DACCE, BSN, RN, the “Earn While You Learn Clinical Education Model” (EWL CEM) is a transformative nurse clinical education model where Academic/Clinical Partnerships enhance students’ confidence, clinical judgment and skills acquisition, preparing a more practice ready nurse graduate for employment. EWL CEM accelerates the development of practice ready nurse graduates, creates a hiring pipeline for hospitals and reduces orientation costs. The nursing students participating in the EWL CEM model work part time at the clinical facility (12 – 20 hours per week, when school in session), receive immersive 12- hour clinical rotations, working one on one with an experienced RN Mentor (preceptor), while receiving a stipend and engage in regular mentoring meetings to consolidate learning.
