Florida Atlantic University’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing is offering a 25-hour, fully online and on-demand “Teaching/Learning Grounded in Caring Science Certificate” course to provide the essential knowledge for engagement in the innovative process for studying nursing grounded in caring.

The Teaching/Learning Grounded in Caring Science course is a virtual-learning certificate program for nursing faculty, graduate nursing students, and working nursing professionals interested in a teaching career. The focus of the program is to acquire knowledge and competencies for engagement in caring science-based teaching.

The content includes the evolution of caring science, philosophical and theoretical foundations of caring science, epistemology, methodologies and praxis exemplars, and a framework for the study of nursing grounded in caring. In addition, the course includes content related to the application of this framework in nursing situations in classroom, clinical and simulation settings and caring-based measurement and evaluation of learning.

The program is designed and presented by scholars, theorists and experts in teaching nursing grounded in caring, who are on the board of the Anne Boykin Institute for the Advancement of Caring in Nursing . In addition, the course includes interviews with 19 international scholars in caring science.

This course also can be a valuable professional development opportunity for nurses transitioning into a potential nursing faculty role, and nursing leaders in health care systems who are involved in the professional development of nurses in practice settings and health care organizations.

The eight-week Teaching/Learning Grounded in Caring Science course, which costs $595, is open to nurse educators, nurse leaders and graduate nursing students.  

“After completing this course, participants will have the knowledge they need to apply a framework for the study of nursing grounded in caring to their teaching and nursing practice,” said Louise Aurélien-Buie, Ed.D., APRN, an associate professor and assistant dean of executive and continuing education and academic-practice partnerships, FAU Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing. “As this important work of caring science emerges, knowledge of the discipline of nursing will advance in tandem.” 

The mission of the Anne Boykin Institute for the Advancement of Caring in Nursing is to provide global leadership for nursing education, practice and research grounded in caring science; promote the valuing of caring across disciplines; and to support the mission of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing.
