Design and Implementation of a Caring Curriculum in Nursing Education
Ramirez, Becky
Online Submission
Although the nursing profession has traditionally been associated with compassionate, patient, and caring behaviors, living in this advanced technological environment where patient related skills and tasks are often rushed caring behaviors are sometimes not seen. In order to improve high school nursing assistant student caring behaviors as well as their interactions with long-term care residents, a person-centered care-giving lesson was incorporated into the usual curriculum. Interactions and behaviors with long-term care residents were observed to be more caring and nurturing, after the curriculum change, as nursing assistant students performed nursing skills and interacted with patients.
