Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Tutoring Program for Pre-Nursing Students

A faculty learning community (FLC) focused on the progression of learning throughout the five pre-nursing science courses. Following course content alignment, instructor recommendations were compiled.  The FLC investigated the impact of course sequencing on student success and identified the need for students to have knowledge of problem-based learning (PBL) pedagogy.  PBL is frequently used in healthcare professional programs because educators recognize that students separate “theoretical knowledge” (the ‘knowing that’) from “practical knowledge” (the ‘knowing how’) leading to a ‘theory-practice gap.’  Presenters will discuss the course alignment process and PBL tutoring program design through examples developed for Anatomy & Physiology I.
