Abstract
A critical task for nursing students is learning to synthesize knowledge and disseminate it to their patients in an understandable format, often in the form of posters or pamphlets for a lay audience. With the Internet becoming the place of choice for information for the lay audience and the use of social media almost universal among undergraduate nursing students, the authors discuss a knowledge synthesis activity that allows students to use familiar tools to create a 3- to 5-minute video in lay terms and the use of YouTube to display the videos.
