Two hundred seven prenursing students in a large university-based nursing college participated in a study about their preconceptions concerning the infection process. Most students had a poor understanding of the distinction between bacteria and viruses and had little knowledge about the immune system or the mechanism of action of antibiotics. Instructors can use knowledge of student preconceptions to create more relevant learning experiences.
