Abstract

This qualitative narrative research study explored nursing students’ perception of collaborative testing in a rural entry-level nursing program. The transcribed semistructured interviews were analyzed and found two themes from the participants. The two themes that assisted with how students learn in collaborative testing are hearing another perspective and refresh, repeat, recall, and reflect. Carper’s (1978) Fundamental Patterns of Knowing was used as the conceptual framework and aligned with the themes to understand how students learned with collaborative testing in a sophomore level foundations of nursing class. These themes were important to the understanding of learning from the student perspective related to communication, teamwork, comprehension, and knowledge in nursing education.
