Jean Watson’s 1st 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 and revised edition 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 non-professional and 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, belief systems, religions, 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.
