This webinar explores the evolution of concept mapping as an active teaching strategy that can be integrated into class, lab, simulation, and clinical experiences. The advantages of concept mapping for addressing the needs of multimodal learners are discussed. “Hands-on” examples of how concept maps enhance the ability of students to critically think and develop sound clinical judgment are provided. The webinar provides faculty with tools that facilitate straightforward evaluation of a student’s ability to synthesize critical concepts and understand comprehensive patient-centered, research-based care. Concept mapping and conceptual care mapping technologies that enhance the professional transformation of nursing students are highlighted.
  • Explore the evolution and relevance of concept mapping in nursing education.
  • Identify specific concept mapping methods to enhance student critical thinking skills and faculty evaluation of student concept comprehension.
  • Describe concept and conceptual care mapping technologies to support transformative nursing education.
