Student nurses are exposed primarily to curative-oriented, sometimes futile care and are less likely to encounter comfort-oriented care. Although many healthcare providers work with people at the end of their lives, nurses spend the most time with the dying and their families. Most nurses will provide palliative care to patients and their families no matter where they practice. This chapter suggests that education in palliative care should begin in the nursing schools and extend through clinical inservices, continuing education courses, and professional conferences.
