Relational Practice I: Self and Others

Course number: NURS 0122

Course length: 45 hrs

Course credits: 3 credits

Course description:

(Semester One) (Formerly 261-121)

The premise underlying this course is that nursing is an experience lived between people (Paterson & Zderad, 1976). Students explore the multiple factors that influence their own capacity to be in caring relation to others (individual, family, groups, populations, communities). They learn to question personal perspectives of experience; to uncover attitudes, beliefs and values, and to share and acknowledge differences. Emphasis is placed on a phenomenological attitude to view the structure and experiences that makeup one’s own and other people’s lives (Hartrick, 1997).
