Palliative and end-of-life care (PEOLC) is a richly satisfying and challenging area of undergraduate nursing education. PEOLC encompasses the everyday work of nurses within an immensely nuanced, family-focused, and team-based approach to healthcare. How do and how might nurse educators prepare undergraduate nursing students for engaging in this area of nursing practice? We invite you to join the co-facilitators of this three-week webinar, to share experiences, insights, and questions regarding the complexities of undergraduate nursing education in PEOLC.

Course Description:
This three-week expert series encompasses a variety of topics relevant to PEOLC undergraduate nursing education, including the principles of care; the contributions of nursing; care planning with an emphasis on a team approach that includes family caregivers; consideration of human experiences; and an overview of resources, services, and settings. The philosophical framework for this series is inspired by the humanbecoming school of thought (Parse, 2014), within which human experience is understood as paradoxical. While drawing on contemplative pedagogy and exploring aspects of the CASN PEOLC Entry-to-Practice Competencies and Indicators for Registered Nurses, the co-facilitators invite participants to share experiences, insights, and questions to develop new understandings about how to prepare student nurses for PEOL caregiving in a variety of settings.

This course is designed for undergraduate nurse educators in any setting who want to share their ideas and experiences about PEOLC education with interested others, who are new to PEOLC education, or want a refresher.
