Abstract:
Abstract: One of the courses that nursing students at Red River College take in their program is called Health Promotion of Individuals, which focuses on maternity and community health nursing. A component of this course is a presentation that students are required to do individually to an at-risk population in the community. The presentations must be interactive and include a poster board. The students benefit from each others work as they participate in a Conference Day called "Bridging Education with Practice" where they share their experiences and showcase the poster boards developed. In 2007 one of the authors completed a research study on the presentation assignment which highlighted its uniqueness. An extensive literature review confirmed the numerous educational benefits to students from experiential learning and opportunities to communicate with at-risk individuals. This session will share with the audience how this presentation assignment is distinctive and valuable. Furthermore results of the research study will be shared including the benefits perceived by the students themselves. The perceived benefits of the students were determined by a comprehensive analysis of a 26 item survey completed by 70 students who did this assignment in 2006.
