Service-learning gives nurse educators a simple tool for linking classroom learning to the community. A growing movement among educators nationwide, it combines community volunteer service with a structured learning experience which includes student preparation and reflection. This book is a guide to applying service learning to the nursing curriculum, written by nurse educators who have created and implemented a successful program at the University of Scranton. It includes essays by community agency administrators who have participated in these programs, student feedback, and many case examples.

"…meeting educational objecives while providing services to the community is an integral component of the definition and soul of service profession such as nursing…one wonders why a book such as this one was so long in coming." – Elaine Larson, RN, PhD, FAAN, Professor, Columbia University School of Nursing
