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, respected sources of conceptual models for nursing. This completely new revision 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. It 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.
