Nursing education is increasingly offered in online settings. In order to continue to convey and sustain caring as a core value in nursing, it has become necessary to better understand what caring means to students in the online nursing classroom setting. Sitzman & Leners (2006) identified online instructor behaviors that supported students feeling cared for in online nursing education environments. In this study, 122 BSN online students from 6 different universities completed an online Likert-type survey in relation to prioritizing the caring instructor behaviors previously identified by Sitzman & Leners (2006). Respondents also answered one open-ended question related to identifying other caring online instructor behaviors not presented in the survey. A subset of 15 respondents participated in an online interview meant to further clarify why certain instructor behaviors were judged more important than others, the pros and cons of online learning, and perceived importance of peer-to-peer interactions in the online setting. Attributes of caring online instructor behaviors that emerged from the data included Empathic Presence, Clarity/Expertise, Timeliness, Full Engagement/Accessibility, and Flexibility/Openness. Themes that emerged in relation to the attributes helped to clarify specific attitudes and intentions associated with caring online teaching behaviors.
