In 2017 and 2018 the Nurstory team was invited to Florida Atlantic University's Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing's faculty retreat to help the program integrate digital storytelling into nursing education. Dr. Marlaine Smith, Dean of the College, knows and understands the value of not just the dialogue that the viewing/listening of stories fosters, but the role of the distillation of nurses' stories in critical reflection, meaning-making, growth and the battle against burnout and compassion fatigue.
In Spring and Fall 2018, a cohort of select faculty will integrate the Nurstory Curriculum into their classes as part of a project to evaluate the effectiveness of the practice on the students.
The report from FAU will be posted here upon completion.
