This paper reports on the development and evaluation of an online scenario based compassion intervention for nursing students. Reports suggest that nursing education programmes should include simulation based learning, and be developed using service users to help teach nursing students about compassionate care, and what it actually feels like to be the patient. In addition, many of the problems arise in hospital environments that are under immense pressure, both financially and to perform well with limited resources. The complex and resource constrained practice environment shapes how people act This underlines an additional need to include educational programs that can prepare nursing students for the reality of practice. In an attempt to address this, previous studies have used both simulation and online teaching environments to teach nursing students about empathy and compassion. Although results showed improvements in the delivery of empathy, confidence and understanding of compassion, very few, if any, have explored the effectiveness of online scenarios as a teaching intervention for nursing student’s compassion. To address this gap, eight nurse – patient scenarios, based on real life clinical experiences, were recorded and developed further with additional theoretical information in Articulate software package. A sample of nurse educators and nursing students participated in a short pilot study aimed at evaluating the experience and understanding of compassion from those using the intervention. The findings from the study are presented and the implication for nurse education discussed.
