Essay: The Effective Domain of Learning
The affective domain of learning, according to Bloom et al (1973), will help the nurses accept the situation of their patients, and still nurse them back to health. Based on the application level (valuing), the nurses should be able to show acceptance of their patients, however complex they might be. They should also demonstrate a set of belief that will be observed from their behavior and be sensitive towards their patients and the culture they ascribe to.
This means that they should accept the patient for who they are, and to understand their situation in life, and how they feel. Regardless of how bothersome the patient might be, understanding them and looking at their situation from that point of view will help them be more patient, kind and gentle, meaning that they will be more effective in handling patients and families.
