HUMN 410 - Applied Storytelling in Nursing Practice


The course focus is on comprehension and creation of narratives and live stories by and about providers and patients. The primary pedagogical approach is the reading and sharing of narratives, class discussions, video presentations, small group work, learning journals, and reflection. In essence, we will hone our ability to create and encounter stories as an important function within the nursing practice. Storytelling facilitates connective learning experiences among students who encounter others authentically and openly, thereby enhancing their professional communication skills, professional identities, and collaboratively developing their critical thinking skills in social environments. The active learning exercises inherent in this course foster engagement, ownership of experience, and reflections for the deep and often difficult work that accompanies the nursing profession.
