Interdisciplinary educational experiences provide opportunities for nursing students to gain knowledge regarding the contributions of other healthcare providers in ensuring quality patient care. The project, part of a family health course, brought together students from 5 disciplines to heighten awareness of the necessity of, and the call for, interdisciplinary education. The authors discuss the project and its structure to provide ideas to other educators who may want to integrate an innovative interdisciplinary experience into their course.
