Palliative Care Education

CON Palliative Care Education

As a leader in palliative care education, the MUSC College of Nursing has been recognized for its holistic approach to emphasizing the value in palliative care, and since 2017, has expanded its palliative care education to include undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty. Students are now graduating with End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) training to better prepare them to care for individuals with serious illness and their families.

The college also launched the first in the nation, Post-Masters to Doctor of Nursing Practice, Lifespan in Palliative Care in 2020. These efforts support the national mandates and trends that strongly recommend that palliative care education be incorporated into all undergraduate and graduate nursing programs, a critical need brought to the forefront during the current COVID pandemic.
