Process-oriented guided-inquiry (POGIL) learning in nursing education was explored in a descriptive comparative study at a private Northeastern University in the United States. POGIL is a method of teaching, utilizing student centered learning rather than the exclusive use of a lecture style teaching method. POGIL research has been documented in science classes but not in nursing education.

Two classes in a private school of nursing were included in this pilot study.  Both classes were students in fundamentals classes during their first semester of the third year of a nursing program with the same professor. One group was offered the opportunity to participate in POGIL exercises during class time. The participants completed 6 group case scenario exercises in 45 minutes intervals after lecture. The groups were comprised of four-five students who worked together on the scenario. A team leader of each group presented the information to the class. The instructor encouraged them to use critical thinking skills throughout the exercise.

Another Fundamentals class of nursing students was given the opportunity to complete the scenarios individually on-line after a lecture. The non-participant group had the opportunity to submit the work to their professor individually. The scenarios were a non-credit assignment for both groups.

The POGIL study compared the relationship between grades on a national standardized exam of participant and non-participant groups of students. The results revealed the subjects’ participant group final mean was higher than non-participant group. The study was a small sample of one participating class of 25 and had a mean result on the standardized exam of 79.2%. The non-participant group of 25 subjects had a mean of 73.4% on the same standardized examination. Further research is needed to evaluate the POGIL approach of group scenario case studies utilization in nursing education compared to the traditional lecture approach.
