IN NURSING EDUCATION, we voice commitment to two main epistemological domains: behaviorism and personal meaning. The former domain provides the dominant frame of reference in our classrooms, while the latter is rarely used.The struggle between the two creates conflict for those thoughtful nurse educators who believe that learning is not necessarily defined as a change in behavior, that teacher-dominated classrooms are not the ideal, and that the classroom application of behaviorism does not create critical, independent thinkers (I).
