Abstract

Self-directed learning modules are a popular option for providing continuing nursing education. Not all nurses are comfortable with this learning format. Nursing educators may be unfamiliar with strategies to facilitate self-directed learning. Self-directed learning is based on assumptions about adults as learners. Effectiveness and acceptance of the learning modules are enhanced by educational strategies that address these assumptions.
