In this research, we designed a learning environment to foster creative nurses. We conducted a design project in the 2009 academic year for second-year nursing students of Aichi Kiwami College of Nursing. In the project, the students were challenged to design tools for rehabilitation. The students were also challenged to undergo rehabilitation using the tools they designed. We examined what the students learned based on the students’ report. As a result, we confirmed that the students understood and acquired creative attitudes through the experience of design activity.

Keywords: nursing education, instructional design, tools for rehabilitation
