The purpose of this article is to describe how the faculty at the State University of West Georgia integrated the perspectives of caring and feminist teaching strategies into its nursing curriculum. The focus of the new curriculum is to provide activities to enhance student satisfaction and learning: activities that enable students to learn how to care for themselves and others. The university is a state-funded institution governed by the Board of Regents. Located fifty miles from Atlanta, Georgia, it attracts students primarily from the southeastern United States. The nursing programme, which grants baccalaureate degrees, has a student body that includes 10 per cent male and 20 per cent minority students.
