Abstract

Nursing education should include teaching strategies that encourage students to participate actively in the learning process. Cooperative learning is a teaching/learning strategy that promotes active student involvement and leads to enhanced problem-solving skills, greater retention of material, and transfer of learning. The author describes cooperative learning and its use in a leadership/management course to teach students about the provisions of the state's Nurse Practice Act.
