This unique book helps nurses identify and develop the personal qualities that go into "artful" nursing practice. Based on nurse stories that portray the art of nursing, the book guides students to analyse how each personal quality or concept is actualised in the story, understand the challenges to enactment of the concept, and then apply the concept experientially through group and individual exercises. The text illustrates and elaborates onthe forms of knowledge used by nurses and concepts central to the art of nursing such as care, spirituality, presence, compassion, self-care and advocacy.


Nursing Students covering topics such as introduction to nursing, fundamentals of nursing, issues and trends in nursing, communication and psychology of nursing
