Podcast Pickle is a great site to find podcasts and then use them in the classroom. In the nursing field treatments are constantly changing so it is very important to stay current on the literature. Having a news show for nursing is a great way to do this. I found a podcast show called The Nursing Show. from searching on Podcast Pickle. You can listen right on the podcast pickle website or you can go to the blog and listen there. This could be used in the classroom by finding a feed on the topic of interest such as Pediatric Cough and Cold Medications and Episode 53 and having students listen from home. The students could then turn in a paper with their comments/ summary or a short discussion could occur in the classroom. These feeds are a great way to incorporate information that is already out there and can save the teacher some time as well!

  1. Caitlin,
    I'm glad that you found a useful podcast. If you had your students create blogs during their course, they could post their reactions to specific podcasts on their blogs.
