This column provides a report of the effectiveness of a nursing program in Hong Kong that used narrative pedagogy. The comments of 12 recent graduates from a postgraduate baccalaureate nursing degree program who were willing to participate in a series of focus group meetings were included. The findings show that nursing education based on a human science paradigm helped form the professional nursing identity of the graduates, as they continued retelling, reliving, and reflecting on their caring narratives. A pragmatic approach to theory-enhanced practice is helpful for nursing graduates to sustain their caring practice.
