Abstract

Empathy is at the heart of all nurse-patient interactions. Yet empathy often declines during students’ nursing education. Nurse educators are challenged to find ways to offset this decline. A mixed-methods research design was used to assess whether an educational intervention using standardized actors influenced nursing student empathy. The results suggest that the educational intervention holds potential for improving empathy in nursing students.
