Abstract

Nursing faculty are faced with the dilemma of how to teach the complex health and social issues about poverty to students because most nursing students have limited exposure to the impoverished. A seminar-driven clinical experience at a crisis center was implemented to address this challenge. Preclinical and postclinical exposure questions helped both students and faculty alike identify growth in students' awareness of social responsibility, client advocacy, and ethical issues.
