Nursing has long prided itself on using scientific inquiry and research as a basis for practice. Nurse educators continue to explore a variety of methods to engage students in the application of using such standards. Two California baccalaureate level nurse educators have adapted an online case study discussion with both undergraduate and graduate nursing students. Students are challenged to use both the American Nurses Association's web site (http://www.nursingworld.org), as well as the California Board of Nursing site, to validate their comments. During Fall 2000/ Spring 2001, forty-four senior undergraduate and twenty-two masters nursing students completed a complex online case study discussion. The case study involved numerous research and ethical legal issues, as well as concerns about quality of care and those issues of managed care. Students were instructed to use position statements of various nursing organizations and evaluate their applications to the case study itself. Evaluations of this teaching strategy indicated a need to have more of these types of learning activities included in nursing curricula. Students also expressed enthusiasm for the opportunity to dialogue on-line with other students in a non-threatening environment. This teaching strategy enabled the students to: (1) think more critically about a clinical situation; (2) recognize the importance of communication between peers; and (3) appreciate alternative perspectives that differed from their own. Additionally, students perceived a new use for computer technology in their roles as future health care providers.
