Bringing Caring Back Into the Curriculum Through Innovative iCare Feature
Educational efforts and innovative teaching strategies promoting the concept of caring are essential both before and after licensure. Redesigning nursing education to meet the demands of the changing health care landscape while incorporating basic principles such as “caring” into the nursing curriculum can be challenging. Using an active learning strategy, the iCare feature provides students with short, affective “how to” examples relevant to specific chapter concepts. These examples illustrate acts of caring and help students engage in the learning process vital for providing high quality nursing care.
