Smaller classes, greater student benefit

“Smaller classes, greater student benefit”

Betty VanStedum, MSN, RN

Program Chair – Tampa, FL Campus

 

There is so much I love about teaching at Jersey College, including the small class size, individual attention, and hands on learning style.

The small class size allows the instructor and the students the opportunity to have a better understanding of what is needed to best meet the needs of the student.  Students are encouraged and motivated to perform with excellence. The hands-on skills learned by the students in the lab provide a safe transition from the classroom to the patient’s bedside. They are able to discover, many of them for the very first time, what it will take in order for them to be the professional they have always dreamed of becoming. 

Although the individual attention may not always be necessary, there are times when life happens and some students may require positive reinforcement. Having been a nurse for 35 years, I see how very important it is to be a coach and a mentor to our peers, both nurses and nursing students. It is amazing to watch the expression on a student’s face when they grasp a concept. As an instructor, I can feel their excitement!

The hands on learning style is very effective in teaching the theoretical component, which is then carried over to the clinical setting. Students are able to transition smoothly into the role of the nursing professional and provide safe, effective care with the skills they have learned in the lab, simulation and various clinical settings.
