Nursing Humanities: Teaching for a Sense of SalienceLim, Fidelindo; Marsaglia, Matthew, JohnNursing Education Perspectives: March/April 2018 - Volume 39 - Issue 2 - p 121–122 doi: 10.1097/01.NEP.0000000000000184 INNOVATION CENTER Buy Abstract Author InformationAuthors Article MetricsMetrics Reports have indicated that nursing programs in the United States are not generally effective in teaching nursing science, natural science, the social sciences, and the humanities. The value of the lifelong study of humanities for nurses is the invitation for contemplation on the human experience so we can make informed moral, spiritual, and intellectual sense of the world. In essence, when we understand, we become more empathetic. This article adds to the call for teaching for a sense of salience in nursing through the meaningful synthesis of humanities in baccalaureate education.
