Prerequisite: Must be taken during first 16 week semester enrolled at the College.

Description: This course employs current educational research to assist students in becoming active participants in a learner-centered curriculum. The roles, responsibilities, and expectations of both the student and the faculty will be clarified. Students will practice various active learning strategies in both the traditional and non-traditional settings. The rationales for a learner-centered concept-based curriculum and the use of technology will be discussed as these relate to best practices in current nursing education. Concepts and theories from students’ pre-nursing liberal arts and sciences background serve as a foundation for the development of new learning skills, which will prepare the student for the professional nursing role of life-long learner.
