[Evidence-based Presentation] In an effort to move into greater understanding of the human experience with all its complexity and at the same time handle the continuous explosion of knowledge, the call has been made for education that transcends discrete disciplinary boundaries. Students in nursing as well as other disciplines need to be able to effectively communicate across disciplines, value other's expertise and knowledge, establish necessary relationships, ask important questions, integrate shared learning, and grow in self-confidence while successfully working with others. A few exemplary models exist that provide this type of education including the one described in this paper. The Human Development Center (HDC) at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire serves as an interdisciplinary training facility for graduate and undergraduate students from an array of health, education, and social service disciplines. The HDC provides educational evaluation, consultative, and intervention services to members of the surrounding community while also offering students and faculty opportunities to conduct collaborative and interdisciplinary research. The Assessment Clinic was the original program of HDC although other programs have been added. Graduate nursing students with specialization in family health nursing participate as team members with other disciplines in the assessment process. A faculty member from the Department of Family Health Nursing has a partial appointment on staff at HDC along with faculty from the other disciplines that participate. The evolution toward transdisciplinary learning by the Center with be shared along with formal and informal findings describing the benefits and pitfalls with this type of learning process.
