Educating nursing students, clinicians, faculty, and researchers in palliative care is needed tremendously in this era of an aging population and the development of new technological ways of extending the lives of those with complex illness and/or injury. With new evidence-based resources being developed to enhance education, including guidelines, competencies, videos, standards, and procedures, educators have a plethora of materials to promote and disseminate palliative care education. Nurses, who represent the largest healthcare profession in the nation, can only practice and teach what they know. Because nurses spend more time at the bedside and out in the community consulting and providing care to those who are seriously ill and to their families, it is vital they be educated to provide competent and compassionate care to those who are most vulnerable.
