Top Teaching Tools Awards
The Top Teaching Tools Awards were established in 2009 by SLACK Incorporated, publisher of the Journal of Nursing Education, to highlight the best educational resources of the previous year that can be adopted by nurse educators in support of the teaching-learning process, curriculum, and/or faculty development in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. The winners are selected by a judging panel consisting of experts in the field. Winners are also announced in the January issue of the Journal.

The purpose of Journal of Nursing Education is to enhance the teaching-learning process, promote curriculum development, and stimulate creative innovation and research in nursing education. In keeping with our mission, the Journal is calling for submissions for its annual Top Teaching Tools awards. These awards will be given to the best educational resources of the previous year that can be adopted by nurse educators in support of the teaching-learning process, curriculum, and/or faculty development in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs.
Eligible "tools" may include books, software, media, interactive Web sites, open source Web-based resources, simulation technology, or other educational resources. Relevant areas of focus include, but are not limited to, pedagogy, curriculum, faculty development, student learning support, clinical education, and technology use in nursing education. Staff development, continuing nursing education, client teaching, and clinical topics not related to teaching-learning in academic programs are not eligible, nor are standard textbooks, published articles, and credit-bearing online courses.
