Most Graduate Nurses Do Not Possess Adequate Clinical Judgment

The current academic-practice gap can be bridged when educators change the way nursing is taught!

I’m KEITH RISCHER, RN, MA, CEN, CCRN, creator of KeithRN. For the last eight years, I’ve been helping educators implement educational best-practice strategies presenting at conferences and workshops across the country.

I struggled as a new nurse educator. I lectured with dozens of slides and failed to engage my students. I tried different strategies but none of it worked. I was discouraged, overwhelmed and was quickly losing my passion for teaching.

Then I discovered the “secret sauce” to change the way nursing needs to be taught when I read Educating Nurses: A Call for Radical Transformation by lead author/researcher Patricia Benner.

I implemented these best-practice strategies in my content and got my students engaged and willing participants in active learning and thinking more like a nurse.

I can help you achieve the same results. 

I created this online conference because…

The gap between how nursing is taught and experienced in real-world practice is widening which leads to poor decision making by new grads that results in adverse outcomes including patient death.

Nurse educators in academic and practice settings are looking for specific guidance to shrink this gap so new nurses are safe and transition successfully to clinical practice, and be successful on the NCLEX®.

Finally, many educators are unable to attend conferences due to cost, and scheduling conflicts.

This unique membership breaks down those barriers so every educator can access teaching to transform how nursing is taught. 

Who is this online teaching conference for?

This online conference that provides 12 months of access is unique because it emphasizes the importance of bridging the current academic practice gap with practical strategies to better prepare students for practice, not just licensure.

Therefore, this conference is relevant to:


Academic nurse educators

who teach in practical/technical, and associate/undergraduate nursing programs.


Hospital-based educators

responsible for nurse residency programs and onboarding new nurses.


Practice based educators

in any setting responsible for onboarding and mentoring new nurses.

But don’t just take my word for it…

Nurse Educators Who Got RESULTS

My students and I love your tools!

Strategies work!

“I can say that the case studies that Keith designed work. The students are engaged in class, and the second-year students who had Keith last year continue to talk about them.”

Faculty eager to implement Keith’s strategies!

“After attending Keith’s Prepare for Practice presentation, our faculty are eager to implement his clinical reasoning strategies to strengthen student learning!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is this membership different than Keith’s all-inclusive membership “Think Like a Nurse”?

A: Most new educators do not receive adequate training to be successful in this new and challenging role. This membership focuses on the TEACHING that any nurse educator needs to better prepare students for clinical practice and licensure by implementing educational best practices that include implementing active learning to contextualize content to practice.

Keith’s other membership, Think Like a Nurse, emphasizes the TOOLS to quickly implement active learning and develop clinical judgment in the clinical setting. The educator must first be empowered by teaching to use the tools successfully. These memberships though separate, complement each other and can be bundled together for a significant discount for both individual and departmental access.

Q: Who will benefit from this membership?

A: If you are a new full-time educator or part-time clinical adjunct, this membership site is perfect for you. It will provide essential teaching that will lay a solid foundation to help you successfully transition to your new role. Experienced educators who recognize the need to do things differently have also found this content helpful and appreciate the time-saving tools that can be easily accessed at the click of a button!

Q: How often will you be adding additional webinars?

A: Two new webinars will be added each month on relevant topics that focus on faculty development, teaching clinical judgment in the class and clinical settings, and “hot topics” such as student incivility and addressing infobesity in the content/curriculum. This means that the membership grows in value the longer you subscribe!

Q: How is this membership different than NurseTim’s webinar subscription for nurse educators?

A: The webinars are shorter averaging 20-30 minutes so they can be easily viewed in one sitting and/or presented in a staff meeting to encourage departmental dialogue.

Most webinars include bonus time-saving tools and supplemental resources so that educational best-practices presented can easily be made actionable.
