Teaching Methodology

Teaching methodology has been designed to inculcate conceptual and technical skills in students and is based on lectures, seminars, group discussions, practical training on patients etc. Efforts have been made to impart education and training through a methodology consisting of –

Teaching Aids

Modern scientific teaching is practically impossible without a gamut of teaching aids viz. overhead projectors (OHP), slide projector, LCD projectors, computer and internet, power point presentations and video cassette libraries. Our faculty utilizes these facilities liberally.

Lectures

Didactic lectures are delivered by experienced faculty to give an overview of different organ systems.

Demonstration

Demonstrations are given with an objective to develop technical skills in the nurses and to illustrate how to perform an act procedurally. These demonstrations are audio visual presentation using actual objects.

Group Discussions

These are held periodically in batches of 6-10 students, supervised by a faculty facilitator for clarifying doubts, sharing knowledge with fellow colleagues and teachers.

Problem Based Learning

We have also introduced problem based learning in batches of 6-10 students with an expert facilitator from the faculty.

Student Tutorials/Seminars

These include Assignments, poster making, write-ups, short orations to inculcate the spirit of self learning.

Laboratory Practicals

These are held according to prescribed syllabus to develop psychomotor skill, ability to observe, verify and analyze data for verification of scientific statements and to reach on logical conclusions.

Field Trip

These are organized to give the students training in natural environment by making them visit special departments, units in the hospital, outside agencies and community services.

Clinical Teaching

Here the students are sent to the hospital clinics, wards for developing better skills and have a direct interface with the patients which enables them to improve their nursing care techniques and skills.

Teaching through simulators

A state-of-art skill development lab has been developed considering the need for teaching through simulators. Here the trainer exposes the students for conducting specialised procedures on live like simulators before practicing on patients. A demonstration of various organs, nerves & senses given to the students through sophisticated software fitted mannequins.

Tests and Viva-Voce

Regular written/Practical/Viva-voce tests are taken to revise and reinforce the knowledge, hitherto imparted to assess student’s ability and effort in understanding the subject.

Classrooms

The classrooms are spacious, well ventilated with proper lighting system. All classrooms are equipped with LCD Projector, OHP, Computer, Black and white boards, racks, cupboards. The classrooms are spacious enough for providing proper and adequate seating facilities for the students.
