Senior Nursing Students’ Knowledge of Palliative Care: A Pilot Study

Public Deposited

This study explores the knowledge level on palliative care of senior level nursing students in a baccalaureate nursing program. It also will examine if the implementation of a palliative care simulation lab will improve the nursing student’s knowledge on palliative care. The World Health Organization (WHO) depicts the increasing numbers of patients in need of palliative care. Both the WHO and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) have recommended a stronger focus on palliative care education. This paper will examine the need for greater palliative care education for senior baccalaureate nursing students by means of pre and post assessments and the implementation of a palliative care simulation in relation to other research articles that suggest the need for additional education in this field.
