The challenge for every educator is how to prepare students as to how best to work in their future profession. Besides to the concern and efforts of educators responsible for the quality of learning experiences, there is significant public interest in the outcome of educational programs, particularly in areas which enable the students to serve the public specially in nursing education. Today’s health care system has become increasingly more complex. Nurses are now mandated to demonstrate efficiency with the use of time and resources, while continuing to demonstrate their value added impact on outcome. These mandates provide a strong rationale for adopting guidelines for excellence in nursing such as transformational leadership, structured nursing empowerment, clinical nursing excellence, evidence based practice and quality indicators in nursing through nursing education. Currently nursing education is based on competencies and outcome which focuses on the ‘end product’ and it is a faculty – student collaborative learning process. Here are some guidelines for integrating quality in nursing education.
