Problem-based learning (PBL) is used in healthcare professional programs because educators recognize students separate theoretical knowledge from practical knowledge. PBL equips pre-nursing students with active learning and scientific literacy competencies. In the current study, pilot sessions occurred in Spring 2020 with 2 PBL tutors and 10-15 students/session. Sessions included review, PBL activity, wrap-up, and assessment. Participants (100%) felt the session length was just right. Most (89%) felt the PBL session increased their interest/skill level. All (100%) felt they studied more effectively and were more independent learners due to PBL sessions.
