Abstract

Nurses in practice have verified the need for nursing education curricula to include content related to care of the dying patient. Nurse educators are initiating curricular changes to assure students have the knowledge and attitudes needed to provide quality care at the end of life. The authors discuss one university undergraduate program's development of both a theory and practicum course.
