CHOICE Review

Caring is the very essence of nursing, and its meaning has evolved over many decades. The body of pioneering work on the foundation of caring concepts in nursing started in the 1970s. This book reflects on these pioneering endeavors, providing an important collection of writings that influenced and shaped the art and science of the nursing profession. Smith (Florida Atlantic Univ.), Turkel (Watson Caring Science Institute), and Wolf (La Salle Univ.) have organized 37 key articles/book chapters into seven sections. Sections focus on analysis, theory, key research, research methodology, models, policy, and leadership as they relate to caring. Each chapter includes both an in-depth discussion of a care concept/model and "Questions for Reflection" at the end. The individual articles are appropriate for students from the baccalaureate to doctoral levels. A supplemental guide is available for faculty who teach courses on caring in nursing. This very interesting book provides a good overview of the evolution of the art and practice of nursing. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels of nursing students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners. B. A. D'Anna Anne Arundel Community College
