The NCSBN is launching the Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) on April 1, 2023. NGN is fostering a new way of testing clinical judgment. With NGN upon us, nurse educators must ensure now, more than ever, that our students are learning the content and grasping the concepts we teach. We need sticky learning! Sticky learning is what I call true learning or deep learning, not just surface learning. One way to make learning sticky is through the use of visual aids.
Why Multimedia Matters in Nursing Education
You can’t open a nursing textbook without seeing lots of images, charts, and graphs. Why? Complex content requires simplified explanations. One of the best ways to simplify complex content is through visuals. The nursing curriculum involves:
- Learning knowledge and skills.
- Applying learned knowledge and skills.
- Ultimately making clinical judgments about patient care.
