Caring is a highly complex and abstract concept, and nurturing a caring attribute among individuals for a nursing career is believed to be best introduced at the start of the student journey in preparatory courses specifically designed for nursing. However, because of the need to professionalize nursing, pre-enrolled nursing programs have been discontinued and replaced by generic healthcare programs in many parts of the world.
This book provides a discussion on new developments in nursing education research. Topics include caring attributes and preparedness to care; behavior in interprofessional learning; undergraduate nursing curricula; the AARCA resolution model in addressing bullying of student nurses; and the establishment of a first year experience coordinator role for nursing students.
