[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Aim: The study explored the feelings of Associate degree Taiwanese nursing students (n = 100) about their experiences after implementation of a Creative-Bonding Intervention (CBI) with elders in long-term care facilities. Background: The aged population, including elders in Taiwan, is growing worldwide. There is an increased need for nurses willing to care for elders; yet few student nurses have interest in elder care. Nursing faculty have the opportunity to promote student nurses' interest in and attitudes about caring for elders following graduation. Reed's self-transcendence theory was the foundational framework for CBI art activities. Methods: Students and elders participated in three CBI activities (self-portraits, monoprints, and ribbon gems) during six weekly student-elder interactions. Following the interactions, a content analysis was performed on students' responses to open-ended questions about student-elder interactions and the CBI. Results: Major themes were: (1) Excitement about self-portraits, (2) positive bonding, and (3) intergenerational caring. Implications for nursing. Students who are provided with creative ways to approach elders become enthusiastic and excited about student-elder interaction, express new interest in elders, and positive attitudes toward caring for elders in the future. Self-transcendence of both students and elders may be stimulated by creative art interventions.
