Abstract

In the future, nurses can expect to provide holistic care for clients with increasingly complex health concerns. The current shift toward wellness and renewed emphasis on treating the whole person means that nurses must be prepared to meet their clients' biopsychosocial health promotion and health restoration needs. The authors outline the efforts of faculty members to create and implement an innovative curriculum design for the psychiatric mental health component in a baccalaureate program. Evaluation data also are included.
