Abstract:
Creative Approaches to Professional Development in Nursing Students: Building Active Strategies to Complement Classroom Instruction
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Bosworth, Terry L., PhD, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Saint Joseph College
Title:Associate Professor and Chair
The information explosion, advances in technology and the unique learning and processing needs of 21st century college students have challenged faculty to integrate active learning strategies into their classrooms.  Responding to this challenge our faculty introduced three different but related active learning strategies into the nursing curriculum:  problem based learning (PBL), community based education (CBE) and an international immersion experience.  Our objective was to create avenues through which students could rehearse and develop professional behaviors in a supervised context, such as critical thinking, problem solving and decision making (PBL); research, advocacy and resource development (CBE); and leadership through involvement with local or international health care partners responding to the needs of the underserved in a developing country (international immersion experience).  This poster outlines each of the projects and their goals, and provide evaluation summaries generated from involved students, faculty and community members.  Evaluations will reflect what has been learned, the effect of the experience on professional development, and the long term effects on the individual or community.  Recommendations emerging from each project, such as the need for faculty development and ongoing peer review with PBL, the importance of lasting and meaningful projects within the community settings, and the benefits of a sustained relationship with the international partners to achieve optimal success over time will be provided.
