Traditionally, nursing students learn medical subjects and nursing separately, which makes it difficult to develop an integrated understanding. This study aimed to explore nursing students' experiences of participating in a case seminar integrating medical and nursing sciences and if, and how, it contributed to their learning. A case seminar divided into a "laboratory session" and a "follow-up session" was developed. The case seminar was evaluated by group interviews and an open-ended questionnaire. Forty-four third-year nursing students agreed to participate. Themes of motivation, authenticity, professional development, collaboration and integration were identified. The case seminars help nursing students to integrate medical science with nursing science, which supports them in their professional development and role as registered nurses.
