NUR 3770 - Compassionate Listening


(2)
In nursing practice, the action of compassionate caring moves the nurse to a higher synthesis level and provides skills that are spoken and unspoken. This develops the art of nursing and balances the art with the science of nursing. The course will address nursing theories and theorists Jean Watson, Swanson, Leininger, and Benner. The course will utilize multiple educational styles to facilitate learning and self-exploration of personal and cultural value systems of compassion. It will facilitate the development of caring for self, patient, and families. Additionally, this course emotionally equips the student to synthesize prior life experiences with academic knowledge, addresses issues relevant to the registered nurse, and prepares the student for entry to the practice of nursing.
