As educators, we need to be committed to being competent educators and ethical teachers. Teaching and learning are both endeavors with ethical overtones. Ethical education requires that both teacher and student do what is necessary to bring about a level of learning that results in competent nurses. It requires skillful dedication on the part of an educator and productive questioning and commitment on the part of a student. A student has to want to learn and has to engage in what is necessary to bring about learning. The educator must employ creative and artful teaching strategies to facilitate learning at a level beyond comprehension and application. Nurse educators, when teaching nursing ethics, have mostly concentrated on the systems of Deontology and Utilitarianism. In this symposium the presenters will show how this is detrimental to students and future patients and how teaching Symphonology can enhance the education of the student and the outcome for patients. Symphonia is a Greek word meaning agreement. Therefore, Symphonology is the study of agreements. For the educational arena, it establishes the relationship between the educator and the student through an analysis of the agreement that brings them together. Furthermore, using Symphonology as a guide to ethical teaching can result in a greater sense of efficacy for student, patient, and faculty. Just like patients, students are very vulnerable. Educators hold power over them and this power can be, and often is, unwittingly, abused. The educational arena should produce benefit, without harm. If we wish students to benefit patients and to give them a caring environment, it must start with the teacher giving this to them. The presenters will demonstrate how Symphonology helps to establish this environment.
