Arts-based pedagogy (ABP) helps nursing students attain affective domain outcomes that are linked to ethical and moral development and professional value acquisition. This literature review identifies theoretical foundations of ABP, examples of art-inspired strategies that helps students achieve affective domain outcomes, and recommendations for using ABP to enrich nursing education. ABP enhanced student engagement, group connectivity, social-emotional learning, and critical thinking. Educators using ABP need to be sensitive to possible student vulnerability and emotional distress.
