Jean Watson’s Nursing: The Philosophy and Science of Caring (Revised Edition), now considered a classic, introduced the science of human caring and quickly became one of the most widely used eBook and respected sources of conceptual models for nursing. This completely new and revised edition in a PDF offers a contemporary update and the most current perspectives on the evolution of the science and original philosophy 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 different cultures, caring is universal and timeless at the human level, transcending societies, religions, geographic boundaries, and belief systems, moving from Self to Other to community and beyond, affecting all of life.
This new revised 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.
