Integrative Learning Strategies and Other Resources
Imaginative, transformative, and seamless learning approaches will guide the education of nurses prepared at the master’s level. Integrative learning strategies will promote the design of more efficient, effective, and relevant learning experiences for the preparation of nurses engaged in higher level practice and leadership. They will foster the ability of master’s students to identify and evaluate connections among concepts and theories across courses and contexts over time.
Integrated learning strategies challenge faculty to think deeply about curricular sequencing, strategies points of connection, diverse learning opportunities, and learning assessment as well as needs for strengthening faculty development for such initiatives. The list of strategies below will help to foster the continuing creation, design, and sharing of models and tools to strengthen opportunities for integrative learning in master’s nursing education.
