This active learning guide is written for students and designed as a "toolbox" or "handbook" to learning in the clinical rotation. It presents a series of student exercises and journaling experiences within an active and inquiring learning model. Self-directed, collaborative learning built upon each student's diverse strengths, abilities, and experience is the focus of this approach. Through this active learning process, students become ore independent and gain confidence in their ability to think, ask, and reflect about, as well as plan, analyze, and apply their experiences. As an active learning guide, this book has three primary goals: to emphasize the need to integrate theoretical classroom learning with the skills acquired in the clinical setting, to encourage the student to fully participate in the educational process, and to provide a practical guide to the triumphs and pitfalls along the way. (clinical rotation, skills, procedures, nursing fundamentals, practice, med-surg, medical-surgical, analyze, judgement)
