This is a core resource for nursing educators and students at all levels who seek fundamental perspectives on the science and art of caring. The ebook comprises 37 classic textbook chapters and journal articles written by leaders in the field and illuminate the evolution of the caring paradigm — from its beginnings as an ethical/ethical/theoretical guide to nursing, to implications for the future development of caring science.
Co-published with the Watson Caring Science Institute (WCSI), it will also be a primary resource for students attending WCSI programs and for in-service education programs, especially in hospitals with, or seeking, Magnet status.
