Abstract

Nurse educators face many challenges in evaluating textbooks to meet the needs of their students and preparing professional nurses who will practice in the next millennium. Using four phases of development, the Texas Textbook Evaluation Tool (T-TET) was created to develop a reliable and valid textbook evaluation instrument. The T-TET may be used to evaluate all levels of textbooks, including specialty textbooks in nursing.
