In this study, the authors explored the perceptions of effective teaching-learning strategies from the perspective of graduates of a second-degree prelicensure nursing program. Data were collected using interviews and analyzed using qualitative description. Seven themes were identified. These findings provide a unique perspective in identifying teaching strategies for use with these students and may provide insight and direction to others who have considered or are considering second-degree prelicensure programs.
