The purpose of this article is to present the foundation for the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) curriculum. Foundational content focuses on the need to improve end-of-life care, the role of nursing in providing quality care, and the basic principles of palliative care, all presented within a quality-of-life (QOL) framework. Teaching strategies are presented that allow undergraduate nursing faculty to teach their students how to respond in both a professional and personal manner to end-of-life issues.
