Description

Arts-Inclusive Education in Nursing Schools: An Integrative Literature Review

Michelle Murtaugh, DePaul University

Category: Research Abstract

Background: Nursing educators have long recognized and championed the value of art within a professional nursing science curriculum, yet many nursing programs exclude the study of the arts. Research suggests that an arts-inclusive nursing curriculum not only enhances student learning, communication, self-efficacy, and clinical confidence, but also positively impacts patient outcomes. To address this gap between what is needed and what is currently offered, some schools are collaborating with art museums to offer arts-based courses in nursing sciences, designed to enhance students’ competency and confidence.

Objectives: This integrative literature review explores how incorporating the arts within a nursing curriculum could contribute to students’ self-efficacy and clinical self-confidence.

Methods: This integrative literature review relies on a mixed methods research design, which integrates data for a transfer of evidence across qualitative and quantitative modalities. The data are assembled as group data and converted into a display around subgroups.

Conclusion: This integrative literature review endeavors to present evidence proving the need to incorporate arts-inclusive courses within the nursing curriculum in order to improve skills requisite for interprofessional team interactions, student competency and clinical confidence, and ultimately in patient care.

Keywords: nursing students, education, curriculum, arts, arts-inclusive, visual arts, self-efficacy, clinical confidence
