There has never been a more important and urgent time for nurses to be educated in excellent communication skills. Undergraduate and graduate nursing faculty, as well as continuing education providers and professional development educators, must be familiar with and include current research regarding the importance of excellent communication, provide opportunities in the classroom to have students/staff practice various scenarios, and role model this important skill. With many changes occurring in healthcare due to state and federal mandates, patients and their families have questions and concerns about the cost of care, what treatments are available, how treatment will affect their quality of life, and how long they will have to live. All of these questions require excellent communication skills in order to hear, to bear witness, and to address.
