Abstract:
Session presented on Thursday, July 23, 2015: Nurse educators are constantly challenged to create learning environments that move students from passive to engaged student learners. Teaching strategies fostering the development of critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills among nursing students transitions faculty from the traditional power-point lecture to incorporate more active learning strategies which improve the student's educational experience with positive learning outcomes. The use of active learning environments and innovative teaching strategies have been identified as approaches to adult learning which promote student engagement with opportunities for students to be motivated to learn course materials, have a sense of accomplishment, and take ownership in their learning experience. These studies focused on three learning environments in a pre-licensure BSN program: the Active Classroom, the SimCare' Center, and the Center for Academic Success. Creating the model in which all learning environments are interactive and engaging generates an atmosphere for consistency in teaching and learning. Evidence-based research supports and guides nurse educators in providing these academic innovations, and expands engaged learning experiences for students in all environments involved in the educational process. Likewise, students are better prepared for their national license exam and entry into nursing practice.
