Purpose: The purpose of this innovative project was to explore the application of art as a medium for beginning baccalaureate nursing students to express their developing concepts of nursing. Description: An assignment was given during a post clinical conference in nursing practicum fundamentals. Students were directed to paint a representative picture of what their individual perspectives were of "what it means to be a nurse." Additional instructions included adding a narrative along with the painting to supplement student expression. Art supplies and paper were provided. Outcomes: Course instructors were initially unsure how students would react to this nontraditional use of clinical educational seminar. Students relished the idea to be involved in this creative experience. There were no signs of hesitation to participate in this project. Students were enthusiastic about this opportunity and participated eagerly. Each student in this clinical section produced one picture and one narrative. Students relayed that they were surprised how effective this teaching method was to bring out deep inner thoughts about what it means to them to be a nurse. The artistic expressions were symbolic rather than concrete renditions. Narrative descriptions were helpful in furthering interpreting the whole meaning behind the art. Conclusion: Esthetic meanings in nursing education are too often neglected in favor of empirical patterns of knowledge. This project highlighted the value of incorporating "alternate" clinical education techniques. Students benefited from this project by being exposed to other ways of expressing professional role self-image.
