Concept mapping has many applications and has been used as an effective teaching strategy in nursing and other disciplines to evaluate both content knowledge and student thinking patterns. Previous applications related to nursing care planning organize client information around a central medical diagnosis. The approach described in this presentation is focused around the reason for nursing care and a holistic nursing view of the client rather than a disease model. Students use a software program to cluster and sort assessment data in order to identify client problems and describe relationships between the problems. This results in a nonlinear “picture” of the client that can be used for nursing care planning. The process is dynamic and flexible, prompting the student to identify gaps in information, consider salience, and understand the complexity of the particular client’s situation. Hyperlinks can be used to display nursing strategies, outcomes, and evaluation data. The project was developed in collaboration with college technical support staff and can be readily submitted and evaluated electronically. It teaches critical thinking skills, nursing theory, and competence with technology and fosters effective interchange between faculty and students. While this application of concept mapping was developed for teaching care planning in an undergraduate nursing curriculum, clinical agencies and preceptors have expressed interest in modifying the process for use in practice settings.
