Life is a series of transitions and an inevitable human experience; therefore a phenomenon of interest to researchers from a wide variety of fields. The purpose of this exploratory case study is to add to what is known about transitions in nursing education for students, specifically those who begin at the college site of a collaborative baccalaureate program. By uncovering the experience of students, academics can deepen their understanding of the complexity of student transition, enabling the development of strategies to support student success, program completion, and graduation. This presentation will focus on the use of a pre-interview activity in the data collection and analysis phases of the study. This activity offered participants another way to reflect upon and recall their experience of transition from college to university, providing the participant and the researcher opportunities to deepen their understanding of a complex phenomenon.
