Given the growing complexity of clients, often the expectation of students is to research their patient assignment prior to providing care. The purpose of this paper is to introduce PREP: a mnemonic to help instructors ensure that the preparation assignments are rigorous and learner-centered. The PREP mnemonic will assist nursing educators to clarify the purpose of student preparation, set realistic expectations, evaluate objectively, and encourage application to practice in the clinical area.
