Development of team skills in novice nurses through an athletic coaching model – Teaching and Learning in Nursing

Nursing is a team sport, and medical errors occur when members of the team fail to collaborate. The purpose of this project was to develop team leadership skills in entry-level nursing students through the integration of team-focused activities in the classroom. The instructor’s or coach’s role was to facilitate group activities that encourage communication, delegation, leadership, and adaptability. The result was development of core competencies related to teamwork for students to use as an RN.
