Flipping an Undergraduate Gerontological Nursing Course: Student Perceptions
A flipped classroom instructional method was implemented in a gerontological nursing course. Students were surveyed to evaluate their perceptions of the flipped classroom module as well as their satisfaction with it. Open-ended questions were used to explore the students’ best and least favorite aspects of the format. Results indicated that, overall, students were satisfied with and received benefits from the new format; some students experienced frustration in the nonpassive classroom setting. Additional research is needed to determine how to meet the needs of these students and which undergraduate nursing courses are suited for the flipped classroom format.
