A nurse may be invited to deliver teaching sessions to students at a local university, especially if he or she has a reputation as a practice innovator. These invitations are an opportunity for the nurse to disseminate practice wisdom to a wider audience. Planning the session so that it is educational, stimulating and represents the nurse's experience and expertise is crucial. While leading such a session may seem daunting, there are several strategies that can increase the chance of success, and these are discussed in this article.
