Patient education is an important part of the professional role of the registered nurse. “It is based on a set of theories, on research findings, and on skills that must be learned and practiced” (Redman, 2007, p. 1). It is an essential part of the art of nursing, and, should be included as one of the major interventions planned for each patient or family member.
Nursing curricula are bursting at the seams with concepts and content. There is little time to incorporate the principals of patient education and faculty have little time to develop and implement creative ideas for helping students learn and practice the concepts of teaching. Below, are some ideas for integrating patient education themes throughout a curriculum.
