It could be argued that the role of the nurse is beginning to change from that of a medical assistant to one of a more research-aware, reflective professional. As a result, the education of nursing students has needed to adapt. This paper explores how problem-based learning (PBL) may be an appropriate means of achieving an educational preparation that can respond to changing needs. Particular attention is paid to the theoretical underpinnings of PBL, especially the concepts of adult education, cognitive processes and learning in context. Some of the relevant empirical studies are reviewed, and the authors attempt to identify the gaps in the literature, concluding by recommending a course of action to expand the existing levels of understanding and evidence that supports, or otherwise, the use of PBL.
