Sunflower Helps Nursing Students Learn Research Methods
Glancing out the window, Mitchell Mertz ‘24 had an idea for how his group could explain qualitative research to his fellow nurses in their Intro to Research course.
Mertz’s group, which also included Brianna Kempf ‘24 and Ryan Geary ‘24, was tasked with explaining qualitative research methods – which entails investigating and documenting health data from individuals based on their life experiences – to their class.
“I saw a sunflower out in the garden, and the idea hit me. What if we made a massive one as a display?”
