9780870818981: Nursing: The Philosophy and Science of Caring, Revised Edition

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. It introduces Caritas Processes, offers centering and mediation exercises on an included audio CD, and provides other energetic and reflective models to assist students and practitioners in cultivating a new level of Caritas Nursing in their work and world.

About the Author:

A fellow of the American Academy of Nursing and a past president of the National League for Nursing, Dr. Jean Watson is Distinguished Professor of Nursing and holds an endowed Chair in Caring Science at the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center. She also founded the original Center for Human Caring. Watson is a widely published author and has received many awards, including six honorary doctoral degrees. Her theory of human caring and model of caring science are used around the world.

Review:

"Nursing pioneered a human caring focus in nursing. The book is foundational for caring practice and so provides an accessible and informative resource, both for nurses in clinical practice and for students studying human caring at undergraduate and graduate levels."
Adeline Falk-Rafael, RN, PhD, Professor and Associate Director, York University School of Nursing

"Watson reviews and revises all components of [her] theory and includes examples of qualitative research studies in caring scholarship and clinical practice. An extensive bibliography and a compact disc with meditation exercises complete this new edition. Summing up: recommended."
M.P. Tarbox, CHOICE Magazine

"Nursing, The Philosophy and Science of Caring is a positive, upbeat, depiction of what nursing should be. The poetry and artwork not only add to the text, but incorporate art with science, much as Watson called for in nursing education. The book will be useful for the numerous healthcare settings who are using Watson's (2008) theory of caring as the theoretical guide in delivering healthcare education."
—Sandra Schmidt Bunkers, RN; PhD; FAAN, Nursing Science Quarterly
