Abstract

Student evaluations can be a valuable method to transform teaching strategies and course design in nursing education. Negative student comments are difficult to view as constructive criticism and have the potential to lead to negative changes, rather than positive, productive changes for improved instruction and course design. This article provides a glimpse of recent empirical evidence regarding student evaluations of instructors as well as providing novice faculty with suggestions for promoting positive change in teaching strategies.
