Abstract

The art and science of the palliative care nursing specialty evolved from time-tested, holistic care practices and key historical events that enhanced awareness of the need for improving care of the dying. Currently, the palliative care team can make significant contributions to patients and families who are facing the final stages of life or other stressful life events that may be mitigated by palliative care interventions. This article traces the trends, precedents, and leadership that have influenced the development of palliative care nursing education. Standards of care, curriculum innovations, and clinical practice guidelines have facilitated the development of high-quality curricula. The article emphasizes the importance of advanced practice and scholarly education to ensure high-quality and evidence-based care for individuals, families, and communities who face significant challenges and suffering related to serious, often chronic, illnesses and end-of-life issues.
