Abstract: Objectives : This paper aims to identify the significance and potential of using literature in nursing education in the EFL (English as a Foreign Language) classroom through a brief overview of literature-based education for medical and nursing students in the U.S. and the U.K. Methods : First, the paper summarizes the history of literature-based education for medicine and nursing students in the U.S. and the U.K. Then, examples are presented of literary works that are expected to be effective teaching materials in future literature-based education for nursing students, and the main contents of these works are summarized. Conclusions : An overview of the increasing number of papers on this topic reveals that it is essential for medical and nursing students not only to have a sufficient amount of basic knowledge in the medical field, but also to have ample opportunities to acquire awareness of the significance of understanding patients' feelings and dealing with ethical issues. We suggest that literature-based English classes are not only effective for improving the English skills of Japanese nursing students, but also for encouraging students to consider patients' feelings and to promote reflective thinking. Further studies on effective methods of literature-based English education for nursing students in the EFL classroom are necessary.
