Conscious Dying Institute is paving a new path in the realm of end of life care; one emerging from awareness, humanity, dignity, caring consciousness, and a return to the sacred. The purpose herein is to discuss the emerging theoretical perspectives of Conscious Dying Institute and to address their implications for broadening the scope of nursing and end of life care. In educating nurses about their own authentic selves, they return to their personal-professional purpose, awaken to a heightened awareness of needs for self and other, and influence a global shift in how end of life care is viewed, addressed, and delivered.
