ABSTRACT: This study embraces technology and compares two teaching strategies for the undergraduate-level nursing student: a taped digital media classroom lecture with YouTube video clips and a simulated unfolding case study experience in the nursing skills laboratory. The objective was to determine which method best promotes critical problem solving around clinical care issues related to Parkinson disease. Each stage of the case simulation shows a progression of disability with increased complexity of patient symptoms, which requires higher levels of nursing assessment. Eighty-four undergraduate students in a baccalaureate nursing program participated in this research study. Significant differences were identified in knowledge and in their ability to analyze complex information. Student outcomes were reported through the comparison of scores on a preexamination and postexamination using alternative style questions.
