NURS 4103 - End of Life Care: Perspectives on Death and Dying

BSN nursing students are introduced to concepts related to caring for dying patients and their families. The study of the phase of life called death raises questions about its roots at the center of the human experience. Students are taught to explore their personal feelings concerning death and dying, regional/cultural differences in attitudes towards death and dying, perspectives of care, and issues surrounding supportive care for patients and families. This knowledge can assist the student in providing compassionate, effective delivery of patient-centered nursing care in the last days of life as well as increase understanding of the journey to personal discovery.

Prerequisite: Admission to BSN Program
