Professional identity of nurses is closely connected to the concept of caring, and nursing educators strive to bring this quality to the classroom. But how does caring translate to the online learning environment? We explored the concept of caring in online education and nursing education literature and then gathered perceptions of the College of Nursing online graduate students about faculty caring behaviors through surveys and focus groups. In this interactive session, we will discuss the top 10 caring behaviors identified by students in our research and provide suggestions for their implementation in online and blended courses. We feel that our findings will be useful to other disciplines and educational settings as caring is a human value and need.
