Abstract: Background: Nurses are significant healthcare team members. It is vital to examine their gains in an interprofessional education (IPE). Purpose: We aimed to examine the perceived benefits of interprofessional team-based learning (IPTBL) on the entry level nursing students. Methods: Content analysis was adopted to identify categories in the reflections of the entry-level undergraduate nursing student IPTBL experiences. Results: There were 205 (male = 34) undergraduate nursing students (response rate 82.2%) participating in the present study. In line with the Interprofessional Education Collaborative Report (IPEC) core competencies, four categories were identified: 1) Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice, 2) Roles/Responsibilities, 3) Interprofessional Communication, and 4) Teams and Teamwork. A new category emerged—individual learning outcomes. Conclusion: Through IP interactions and the expectation of the IP team, the nursing students had built confidence and defined the nurses’ roles.
