Utility of online interactive case studies in preparation for the first clinical placement among nursing students: A cross-sectional study

Publication Name

Teaching and Learning in Nursing


It is unclear how useful interactive case studies are for nontraditional nursing students when preparing for their first clinical practicum. From a survey, 717 first year nursing students reported high levels of usefulness of the interactive case studies, were more likely to have high task value and self-efficacy, have English as an additional language, and lower Grade Point Averages. These students may benefit from online interactive case studies to prepare for their first clinical practicum.
