Writing, discovery, and critical thinking: creativity and student success

April 3, 2012, 12-2 pm


The presenters will discuss their writing courses for graduate and undergraduate students at the Hunter–Bellevue School of Nursing. Formal assignments, including a blog post, a summary of qualitative research, and a narrative essay, are supplemented by artistic practices such as daily journal writing and in-class “quick writes” to encourage critical and creative thinking. Instructors meet with all students in one-on-one conferences twice a semester to discuss progress. While one stated intention is to help students to sharpen their writing skills, another of equal importance is to enhance students’ sensitivity in their clinical practice.
