The Senior Wellness Project: Focus on experiential learning
Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 2, Number 3 ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Nurse educators seek good tools for experiential learning. The Senior Wellness Project allows students to interact with healthy seniors in the community. During three visits, each student assesses and thinks critically about the senior's learning needs. For the final visit, the student uses technology to prepare health promotion teaching and presents the project to the senior. The Project contributes to student knowledge about physical, psychological, and sociological aging and supports program improvement.
