Key Elements of Nursing Education

The department of nursing has developed a participatory nursing education curriculum that nurtures students’ growth as students with the goal of improving their abilities by practicing nursing and by letting students take on leading roles as independent learners. The most important competencies of these abilities to practice nursing are: the ability to participate in collaboration with others, the ability to learn on one’s own, and the ability to evaluate oneself. These core abilities are conceptualized as abilities to commit oneself and are put into practice through many programs that incorporate these competencies into the educational philosophy through the following three dialogues.

 

1. Dialoguing with oneself

Students aim for career development as professional nurses while deepening their self-understanding through an internal dialogue.

 
2. Dialoguing with the other

By spontaneously engaging in a dialogue with staff, faculty and friends on campus, students become more deeply involved in educational activities occurring both inside and outside the classroom.

 
3. Dialoguing with the region

Students interact with the local population through the nursing practicum program and field activities, and through these dialogues inherit and develop the culture of caring.
