The dedicated education unit (DEU) model of clinical nursing education is an innovative, evidence-based model for creating a more effective learning environment. Although nursing programs have used this model for years, the literature provides minimal direction to assist faculty in transitioning from traditional clinical teaching to the DEU model. This article reports the development and evaluation of 2 resources to help all involved understand teaching roles and desired learning outcomes in the DEU model.
