A specific goal in teaching rehabilitation nursing is to help students respond to the deformed and disabled in a way that conveys belief in their dignity and worth. This is often a difficult objective to achieve since student nurses share a cultural value for youth, competence, physical prowess, and beauty; and may have difficulty dealing with their own feelings in working with disabled people. © 1978 Association of Rehabilitation Nurses.
