I feel this style will work best as it encourages the nursing students to develop their skills and their leadership skills as well.

Nursing students must understand and appreciate the demand for care of the aging population so that they can learn and apply this knowledge in their nursing careers where they will inevitably encounter a vast majority of senior citizens.
