Publisher's Summary

Jean Watson's first edition of Nursing, now considered a classic, introduced the science of human caring and quickly became one of the most widely used and respected sources of conceptual models for nursing. This completely new edition offers a contemporary update and the most current perspectives on the evolution of the original philosophy and science of caring from the field's founding scholar. A core concept for nurses and the professional and non-professional people they interact with, "care" is one of the field's least understood terms, enshrouded in conflicting expectations and meanings. Although its usages vary among cultures, caring is universal and timeless at the human level, transcending societies, religions, belief systems, and geographic boundaries, moving from Self to Other to community and beyond, affecting all of life.

This new edition reflects on the universal effects of caring and connects caring with love as the primordial moral basis both for the philosophy and science of caring practices and for healing itself. The book is published by University Press of Colorado.

    "The Old Ought Not Be Disguarded"

    Jean Watson has hit on the very essence of what it means to 'nurse' a patient back to his best state of health as well as Nightrngales' precepts continue to deliver for both nurse and patient. This book should be a must read for anyone who is thinking of becoming a true nurse; not just a technical clinician.

    Watson explains in simple terms the Caritas Nursing Model. Though one might find what she lays down as 'old school' I resoundingly applaud her for restating all that is nursing are practiced in the 'little human conveyances with technology as tool for better results not essential for it in all cases. It is the art, science and indeed spirit of the profession that Jean Watson so eloquently and professional tells us. Thank you
