Altmiller, G. & Robertson, B.  (April 2011).  Communication and Teamwork.  National Council of State Boards of Nursing: Transition to Practice Program learning module.  This learning module was developed for implementation as a national program for new-to-practice nurses.  It was commissioned by the National Council that oversees licensing for all nurses in the United States.  This initiative is a national education program to be mandated for nursing licensure renewal.  The program consists of seven modules authored by experts in their field.  I was recruited as an expert in teamwork and communication.  This project entailed creating educational content that includes interactive exercises and a web-based examination for participants. Below is the link to a page about us as authors. The actual module is not accessible at this time as it has been piloted as part of a study.
