Summary

This paper describes the first year of a 2-year Diploma Nursing Program for American Indians that incorporated a humanistic learning component. The program was offered by the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology, Kelsey Campus, and was delivered off-site in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. Humanistic practices were introduced to create an effective classroom learning environment. Climate setting involved asking students to think about positive and negative learning experiences in their lives and to identify key features in these experiences. Active learning was promoted by emphasizing open communication, mutual respect, student cooperation, and the instructor's role as facilitator. Teaching units were developed into feedback lecture modules involving considerable group discussion. Self-directed learning was implemented through a learning contract that focused on mutual planning, self-diagnosis of learning needs, goal setting, determining learning strategies and resources, and providing objective evidence of accomplishment. The 20 nursing students resisted taking responsibility for their own learning initially, but became involved when they saw direct application of their own ideas. Without exception, students commented favorably on the learning atmosphere. They showed improvement in reading and writing skills, communication skills used in discussion, and self-esteem and confidence. Moreover, the attrition rate after 8 months was zero. (SV)
