Abstract

Caring is often considered a synonym for nursing; therefore it is appropriate to include its definition and description in nursing courses and curricula. Is such an ethereal concept teachable? If so, how might a lesson about caring take place in a nursing course? This article offers a strategy and resources to assist nursing students to understand and recognize caring, develop personal definitions of caring, and identify behaviors to show their ability to care for patients, colleagues, and classmates.
