Abstract

Although all faculty evaluate student assignments, fewer tackle the difficult issue of evaluating its actual usefulness. Wanting to know how their undergraduate community health nursing students were understanding and using a conceptual model in clinical practice, the authors used student journal assignments to evaluate learning and application of the model. They discuss the project's outcomes and subsequent strategies implemented to enhance their own understanding of the model and facilitate improved student learning.
