The National Institute of Nursing Research Science of Compassion Conference (2011) identified gaps related to end of life including the integration of end of life process with compassion, ethics, and intellectual collaboration between multidisciplinary groups. This study will assess the accelerated nursing students attitudes related to caring for the dying patient as a first step to determine the students' attitudes with follow-up interventions dependent on the study findings.
