NURS 6300 - Student-Centered Learning in Nursing Education


(3 sem. cr.) A major goal of nurse educators is to recognize students’ individual and collective needs to create a supportive learning environment. In this course, students explore the theories and principles associated with the diverse learning needs of adults as well as effective strategies to meet these needs. Students examine and discuss a variety of topics, including socialization, motivation, critical thinking, learning styles, and the impact of societal values on the learning environment. They also examine the unique needs of nontraditional, international, educationally disadvantaged, and physically challenged students. Students apply content through the critical analysis and summary of an adult learning plan designed to overcome learning barriers.
