Title : Caring in nursing education
A lifetime of nursing education is a necessity because of the continuous scientific advancements changing the nursing practice. Nursing educators’ role of facilitators of student development increases the conditions for graduate and Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing program student’s academic success at a time of economic hardship, nursing shortage, and continued epidemics. Contemporary education plans must consider the students' relevant modern life commitments and stress levels for education to be effective. While accrediting agencies are interested in reducing the bridge between education and practice, it is important to highlight the need for "caritas" exchange between instructor and students during the educational process as an ethical ideal based on Jean Watson’s human caring theory.
