Abstract

Background:Nurse educators are challenged to offer high-impact learning opportunities integrating technology to engage the current generation of students. An innovative learning assignment was created using app technology to replace a traditional assignment in a nursing leadership course.

Method:Students were assigned to create a digital video depicting a difficult situation in practice using the Clips app by Apple. The assignment used situation, background, assessment, and recommendation (SBAR) for structure and incorporated evidence-based practices. Students were surveyed to gain insight into the effectiveness and student satisfaction of the assignment.

Results:Students overwhelmingly supported the assignment as an innovative way to learn leadership, identifying creativity and having fun while learning as something not experienced in their other nursing courses.

Conclusion:A digital assignment offers an opportunity to imagine learning assignments in nursing education that capture student attention in a non-traditional method reflecting the impact of technology on nursing education.
