This will enable students to realize their cognitive, affective and psychomotor results effectively (Gaberson, &Oermann, 2016).
2.Development and socialization of learning: It is my role as a nursing educator to help my students develop their interest in nursing and appreciate the value and behaviours expected of them to become a successful nurse.
