The theory of deliberate practice for mastery learning is well known and widely used in music and sports. Medical faculty are embracing this theory but it remains nascent in nursing education. DP is built around the concepts of well-defined goals, immediate feedback, reflection on practice, and frequent continued opportunities for practice. We will operationalize the terms DP and mastery learning, explain why nursing educators might want to use this theory, and how its use might lead to better student learning and retention. This bi-national panel will present on-going projects and studies using DP. We hope to inspire the audience to develop their own plans for using deliberate practice in their own teaching and research.
