Engaging with bioscience subjects can be challenging for some nursing students because they lack confidence in their ability to study science. Consequently, many students and qualified nurses have difficulty understanding and applying the bioscience and pharmacology knowledge that should underpin their professional practice, to provide safe and effective patient care. Recent evidence highlights variation in the extent of bioscience teaching and assessment across undergraduate nursing curricula and in particular there is insufficient pharmacology taught within the curricula. To improve student engagement in bioscience subjects, nurse educators need to develop innovative and creative approaches to enhance the teaching and learning of these subjects. Given the links between art, science and nursing, this project aimed to explore the benefits and impact of engaging undergraduate nursing students in pharmacology through the artistic medium of felt.
