Nursing demands creativity in working with diverse populations in a variety of settings. Freshman students need technological skills to survive in higher education. Nurses must develop ways to express emotions and relate to the clients they will serve. Storytelling is a proven method for teaching, learning, adapting, and coping. Students will use many skills to adapt to higher education; these skills will be translated into creative interventions to be used with future clients. Nursing faculty members want incoming students to begin to develop creative and technological skills for both academic and professional nursing success. As part of the University's freshman experience, incoming students arrive on campus prior to the beginning of the semester. During this time, course experiences have been selected to introduce the students to various forms of technology. Students are asked to be creative in reflecting on changes in their lives. During the past five years, incoming nursing majors have completed a media project to enhance their technology skills. Each year, the project's theme is selected by the faculty. Small groups develop short digital stories related to the theme, expressing their adaptation to college life. This project replaced written assignments to enhance community-building among nursing majors. This poster presentation will look at student and faculty evaluation of this experience, and trace the project revisions over time.
