Purpose: Explore nursing students' perceptions of how to enhance health promotion in the pediatric population. Apply Fink's Taxonomy of Significant Learning to facilitate integrated course design for a pediatric baccalaureate nursing curriculum. Subjects: senior I baccalaureate nursing students (N=85) enrolled in the clinical course Nursing Care of Children. Methods: This qualitative study explores senior baccalaureate nursing students' perceptions (N=85) of the teaching and learning experience related to health promotion during their pediatric clinical rotation. Results: Several themes emerged. Knowledge was enhanced related to patient and family understanding of basic issues as well as self-reflection of the student's own perceptions, teaching styles and understanding of essential concepts learned in the classroom. Tailoring material appropriate to the developmental stage of the individual was considered very important. Students identified that adapting the teaching style and method to the appropriate age and education level ensured engagement by the child or family. Students identified that the children and families had a desire to learn, and were more likely to be an active participant if the material was presented in multiple sessions over time and in an interesting manner. Students' perception of the importance of patient and family teaching evolved over the course of the semester, and highlights the importance of providing students with the tools necessary to be effective teachers and change agents to promote healthy behaviors across the lifespan. Fink's Taxonomy of Significant Learning can be applied to facilitate integrated course design for a pediatric baccalaureate nursing curriculum. Conclusions: Chronic illnesses in the pediatric population are a growing problem, and significantly impact quality of life. The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (The American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2008) addresses the importance of health promotion at the individual level across the lifespan to effect optimal population health.
