Abstract

Physical inactivity is a global epidemic. Student nurses engaged in experiential learning to raise physical activity awareness to community groups via the initiative “Physical Activity Community Engagement” (PACE). Whilst doing so this allowed students to reflect on their own health behaviour. Action research using focus groups and photo-elicitation techniques were used to obtain students' opinion and experiences about their engagement with the PACE12 initiative. Three themes emerged from research data:" Graduateness", "Reflections", and “Making Connections".
