    Navigate Scenario: LearnScapes for Nursing ResearchLast fall, we conducted a study on Navigate Scenario: LearnScapes for Nursing Research with more than 100 students across five institutions. Participating students used the LearnScapes over the course of a semester and shared their experiences with us.

    As a result, we found that approximately 2/3 of the students agreed that Navigate Scenario helped them understand the role Nursing Research plays in hospitals. In fact, Kayla Galipeau, a senior Nursing student and winner of the study gift card raffle, said:

    “Although the classroom environment is ideal for learning the basics of research and how it is used, I feel that without the Navigate Scenario LearnScapes I would not have gained such a complete understanding of all the concepts. It was extremely useful in seeing how research is used in the professional field and sparked my interest for future research endeavors.”

    Navigate Scenario: LearnScapes for Nursing Research takes the virtual learning experience to a new level by giving students the opportunity to apply knowledge in authentic, contextualized environments. It helps students develop and practice critical thinking skills while increasing their problem solving abilities. A virtual homework tool for students, Navigate Scenario: LearnScapes for Nursing Research contains content aligned to leading nursing research textbooks. It exposes students to a variety of "day-in-the-life" nursing career experiences. Through these simulations, nursing students develop the critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills necessary to apply their knowledge to situations they will encounter in their future profession.
