This paper draws upon the five-year experience of a group of nursing lecturers involved in planning, delivery and evaluation of a discrete module on the expressive arts within a Bachelor of Nursing course within one Scottish university. In part, this account is a reflective process on learning and pedagogy at a particular stage of a module’s development within a dynamic degree curriculum. It is also, however, an explorative paper designed to analyse more generally possible directions for use of the arts in nurse education, but also to exemplify related practical activities which may be of use to educators in nursing across a variety of contexts.
