Abstract

Nursing education grounds clinical practice. The Fundamentals of Care pose challenges to current education and outline opportunities to improve education in the future. In my essay, I specify the current challenge presented by the Fundamentals of Care for nursing today and my approach in addressing that challenge. I go on to outline conceptual and evidentiary highlights within the realm of the Fundamentals of Care and select related topics. Finally, I synthesize implications for nursing education from the challenge juxtaposed against conceptual and evidentiary ideas.
