Modeling salient nursing care to bridge classroom to clinical

Janet Lusk Monagle, Karen Quinn Doherty


It is not possible to expose nursing students to all aspects of nursing practice while in school; educators must be creative to bridge the gap between classroom teaching and clinical practice.

The aim of the study is to analyze nursing student’s perceptions of this method of teaching. Bandura’s Social Learning Theory guides the study. Three themes emerge from viewing the videos and debriefing: the videos reinforce the learning; visual learning is valuable, and debriefing after the video is essential. Additionally, students enthusiastically support the method to enhance their learning.
