An Australian Perspective: The Art of Being with Students.

Sadie Geraghty, Sara Bayes

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This article focuses on two nursing and midwifery tutors’ subjective experiences of working with students. It considers the feelings and friendships that are built during the learning process, and the impact the experience has on the tutor. The emotional stresses, ethical dilemmas, and personal reflections that a tutor encounters while facilitating students’ learning are also explored. Parse’s Human Becoming Theory is proposed as an example of a theoretical framework on which to base the facilitation of nursing and midwifery students’ learning experience, and is contrasted with the traditional model of nursing and midwifery education.
