Creating a Learner-Centered Environment in Nursing Education: An Immersion Experience
Steiner, Susan H.; Floyd, Evelyn; Hewett, Beverly J.; Lewis, Nicole C.; Walker, Eldon H.
Journal of Adult Education, v39 n1 p11-17 2010
A call for change in nursing education has been issued in order to prepare the nurse of the future in a changing health care delivery system with increasing complexity. The learning environment is changing, including the faculty role. Innovative research-based pedagogies are suggested as a way to challenge traditional nursing education. The foundational learning theory course in our school of nursing program, "Rethinking Nursing Education," is one way to begin creating a new world of nursing education. How better to fully appreciate the learning theories underpinning a learner-centered environment than an immersion experience?
