Our Method of Instruction: Context-Based Learning (CBL)
- It starts with a real nursing situation that practicing nurses have shared with us; you gain knowledge from working on that situation.
- It is student-centered with emphasis on self-directed learning. This means as a group, and on your own; you will identify and research ideas, information, and theories you need to know in order to work as a nurse. You learn to learn.
- It involves work with a small group of your peers where you also take on different group roles (leader, reader, writer, and timekeeper).
- The instructor is a guide, and partner in each course.
- It helps you to see that the practice of nursing is based on evidence.
- It helps to improve your clinical skills.
- It helps you to become independent learners and to continue learning after you graduate.
- It helps you learn to function better in a group and to communicate more effectively.
- It helps you develop skills to make decisions, solve problems, and think critically (develop a solution).
Students take the theory and concepts from CBL into Clinical Practice.
