abstract

  • Growing numbers of nursing faculties around the world believe that problem-based learning (PBL) fosters students' knowledge, skills and attitudes and allows them to participate as more efficient and effective health care team members. McMaster University School of Nursing has a long history of PBL. Their Institute for Nurse Educators now offers a professional development program where nurse educators from around the world learn to make the transition from traditional teaching to the development of a PBL curriculum.
