This Webinar will describe a five-year evolutionary independent study involving undergraduate BSN students in faculty scholarship and research. It started with an interdisciplinary program between the physical therapy and nursing programs, where an extraordinary program was developed, using nursing and physical therapy students. At that point, undergraduate nursing students became involved in all of the faculty member's scholarship - writing grants, assisting in research for presentations, chart reviews for guidelines adherence, and preparation for poster presentations. The result was a win-win for the faculty and for teaching undergraduates why they want to pursue advanced degrees.
