Rationale Behind Teaching Methods
  • Research has shown that Adult learners prefer
    experiential learning and self directed learning
  • What is self directed learning?
  • Self-directed learning has been described as "a
    process in which individuals take the initiative,
    with or without the help of others," to diagnose
    their learning needs, formulate learning goals,
    identify resources for learning, select and
    implement learning strategies, and evaluate
    learning outcomes (Knowles 1975).
  • According to Knowles, Learning is more
    meaningful and purposeful, with greater
    motivation resulting in longer retention

  • Lunyk-Child (2001) found that students undergo a
    transformation that begins with negative feelings
    but ends with confidence and skills in
    self-direction and during this transformation it
    is the responsibility of teachers to provide
    student support
  • It is our job to teach you how to learn this way
    and to help you along the way. We are here to

  • Nurses need to be able to manage and monitor
    their own learning. This means that professional
    nurses engaged in continuous learning should have
    the ability to be self directed. The use of
    problem based learning as an instructional
    methodology in undergraduate nursing curricula
    has been identified as one way to facilitate the
    development of nursing students abilities to
    become self directed in learning (Williams,B.

Study Tips

  • Apply
  • Integrate
  • Questions will not be recall questions
  • Study differently
  • Reading is not enough
  • Practice applying new information
  • Integrate growth and development into scenarios
  • Case studies

Practice Questions
  • The most appropriate nursing intervention when
    caring for an infant with an upper respiratory
    infection an elevated temperature would be to
  • Give tepid baths to reduce the fever
  • Encourage food intake to maintain caloric needs.
  • Have child wear heavy clothing to prevent
  • Give small amounts of favorite fluids frequently
    to prevent dehydration.

  • Although a 14-month old girl recently received a
    shock from an electrical outlet, her parents find
    her about to place a paper clip in another
    outlet. They discuss this with you as they are
    frustrated about how to handle these kind of
    situations. You should advise them that
  • Her cognitive level must be delayed.
  • This is typical behavior because toddlers are not
    well developed.
  • This is typical behavior because at this age,
    there is an inability to transfer past
    experiences to new situations.
  • This is not typical behavior because toddlers
    should know better than to repeat an act that
    caused them pain.

  • A 5-1/2 month-old infant is admitted to the
    hospital with a fever and a history of vomiting
    for 48 hours. In view of this infants responses,
    the assessment by the nurse that would initially
    influence the childs care is
  • Inspecting the babys skin for poor turgor
  • Determining the babys vital signs and weight
  • Checking the babys neurologic status and urinary
  • Asking the mother whether the baby is breast- fed
    or bottle-fed
