Using Social Media to Promote Student Success
Social Media is an Internet platform that enables others to communicate thoughts and ideas from person to person or with communities of interest. Instagram is one type of social media allowing users to use videos and images to communicate with others. This podcast with Dr. Jasmine Bonder discusses how Instagram is being used to help students and community members learn from a global perspective.

Peer Mentoring for DNP Students
Dr. Colleen Paramesh describes a peer mentoring strategy she developed for DNP students and how she used it to guide the DNP project. Learn about the outcomes of this strategy for both mentor and mentee.
Multimodal Curriculum to Educate Nursing Students about Gender-Affirming Care
Individuals who identify as transgender and gender diverse require informed and compassionate health care, yet there is a lack of research about which educational strategies to use. Dr. Becky Mueller shares her study that evaluated a multimodal approach to educate NP students about care of transgender and gender diverse patients. The educational intervention included guided readings, a transgender patient panel, standardized patient simulation, and group discussion. The Sexual Orientation Counselor Competency Scale was administered pre- and postintervention. Results demonstrated increases in knowledge, skills, and attitudes and a high level of satisfaction for the overall program, but especially for the patient panel and standardized patient encounter.
This educational intervention also can be used in prelicensure nursing education.
Word Clouds to Promote Sense of Belonging and Persistence
Karen Hunt and Amanda Cornine share how they use word clouds to promote students' sense of belonging and academic persistence. This is a low cost, active learning strategy that you can use in all of your courses.
Debates as Active Learning Strategy
Drs. Betty Napoleon and Christine Kuchenrither explain how they use debates to teach ethics in nursing. These debates also prepare students for navigating issues they may encounter in nursing.
Interdisciplinary Panel: Teaching Strategy for Content on Marginalized Patients
Nursing graduates need to provide care to diverse patient populations while working within the interdisciplinary care team. The Care of Marginalized Patient Populations Panel presented nursing students with the opportunity to engage with health care professionals from across disciplines who specialize in the care of diverse and marginalized patient populations. This podcast with Dr. Christopher Martin provides an exemplar for nurse educators to engage their students through the experiences and expertise of health care professionals from across settings.
