Abstract


In today's world there is increased need for professional nurses to be autonomous, capable of independent thought and able to make their own assumptions and decisions. Performance of nursing requires a cognitive ability that includes problem solving, decision and clinical judgment. Higher education has shifted from a focus on teaching to a focus on learning . Problem based learning(PBL) is one approach that shift the focus from teacher centered to learner centered education and facilitate Self Directed Learning. In PBL, students work in teams to solve one or more complex and compelling "real world" problems.
