Nursing education requires a stronger focus on chronic illness management through patient education. Type II diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease seen throughout the lifespan continuum and in both community and hospitals setting. All nurses need to educate patients on nutrition, exercise, and the prevention of acute and chronic complications. The purpose of this project was to educate student nurses about diabetes care coordination using constructivist, transformational, and cooperative learning theories in association with diverse teaching and assessment strategies such as lecture, low fidelity case study, and one minute reflection.
