    Abstract

    Why develop online resources for problem-based learning? PBL is a pedagogy which requires students to seek resources for themselves. Providing students with easily accessible resources must surely run counter to the philosophy. PBL is first and foremost a strategy for learning; its overriding purpose is to assist learners to acquire, not only factual knowledge, but the transferable learning, critical thinking, and reflective skills necessary for professional life. PBL is thus ideally suited to the education of nurses.In nurse education a tension exists between the need to develop critical thinking skills and the requirement to acquire, simultaneously, the clinical proficiencies set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Meeting these demands within the time frame of an undergraduate nursing programme presents a considerable challenge. This monograph details the journey of the SONIC project group as they met this challenge, maximising student study time by combining the benefits offered by PBL with online resources targeted to topics which nursing students traditionally find difficult. At journey’s end their resources, offered freely, without the barrier of complex entry procedures, fit not only with the programmes run by the four partner institutions and other Schools of Nursing but also with programmes offered by other health care disciplines
