What is it about?

This article explores the people who play a role in shaping and developing nursing student caring behaviors. Apart from parents and families who have cared for since childhood, peers, seniors, lecturers, nurses in the practice area, even patients who are cared for also play a role in developing, maintaining, and strengthening caring behavior.

Why is it important?

This study is very important because by knowing the people who play a role and ways that can be done to shape and develop caring behavior in nursing students, nursing education institutions can design programs to form a caring culture by involving these people. This study recommended that the faculty engage peer groups, senior students, and lecturers in the mentoring program to cultivate a caring culture among nursing students and measure the effectiveness of the program to change nursing students’ caring behaviors.


I hope this article will contribute to the development of a caring culture in nursing students to become caring nurses and provide humanized healthcare.
