In winter 2015, we conducted two pilot studies with nursing students at two different universities. During the pilots, students used Navigate 2 Advantage Access, which included a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, and learning analytics reporting tools. The pilot studies featured:
- Navigate 2 Advantage Access for Gerontological Nursing, Third Edition
- Navigate 2 Advantage Access for Evidence-Based Practice for Nurses, Third Edition
Overall, 24 students provided us with feedback on their experiences. The majority of students reported that Navigate 2 helped them study and prepare for exams more efficiently.
In addition, students reported highly positive ratings for Navigate 2 features, especially its organization and ease of use.
Another important finding of these pilots showed that students who spent more time using Navigate 2 were more satisfied with the product overall.
