New ways of learning: Nursing students at Kamp for Kids

As faculty involved in the teaching of nursing students, we are perpetually seeking new learning forums for our students. Experiential and clinical learning experiences have long histories as methods that have been used in education. Usually these experiences are planned and developed by instructors, with little opportunity for creative involvement on the part of the students. Courses generally also segregate nursing students from other health professions, not accurately portraying the collaborative processes integral to current healthcare delivery. These obstacles led to the faculty development of a course, “Teaching Wellness to Children,” in which the clinical component was the student planned and implemented “Kamp for Kids.” A collaborative learning style class provided students with information pertaining to developmental aspects of working with children, teaching/learning theory and strategies, details concerning the planning and implementation of the camp, and specific informational content to teach during camp. During the clinical component, university students from a variety of disciplines adapted teaching strategies for children, organized daily schedules, increased their own knowledge base, participated in evaluation research, learned cooperation, leadership, and relationship skills, and used creativity throughout the process. The camp has evolved into a very successful, “Diabetes and You: Kamp for Kids,” designed to increase the level of knowledge, enhance positive diabetes related behaviors, provide socialization, and most of all, be fun for school-age children with Type 1 diabetes. Evaluation research has taken place on several levels, including overwhelmingly positive parent and Kamper satisfaction surveys, a pre- and post-test design study that examined levels of knowledge, and a parent and Kamper survey of diabetes related behaviors. The class/camp was a valuable method to teach many skills and engender students’ independence, sense of initiative, and creative juices.
