Abstract

Self-learning modules (SLMs) provide an educational format that is easily portable and can be incorporated into the nurse's day at the nurse's convenience. Self-learning modules are a flexible teaching modality than can enhance not only nurse's knowledge and skill but also the unit's educational programs. Incorporating the bedside nurses in the development of SLMs has provided an opportunity for staff to work on writing skills, produce a professional product, and receive contact hours. The use of author guidelines, content expert and peer review is described in detail.
