What I teach is not necessarily the same as what the student nurses learn. As a teacher I have experienced that they learn even more when they work on case related situations with patients.

In this article I want to describe and discuss how to create cases, and how various cases can be used to increase the students’ knowledge of nursing. As teachers, we must give the students the opportunity to learn how to act relevantly when they start work as trained nurses. I want to point out the key issues to be addressed in good learning situations.
