Jean Watson’s remarkable, iconic book continues her quest for the heart of nursing, and further develops the theories which have inspired nurses all over the world. Drawing on the wisdom of Nightingale from the nineteenth century, Dr. Watson sets out a template for nursing for this twenty-first century. As we move beyond the high-tech, cure-at-all-costs ethos of the ‘modern’ era, Dr. Watson argues, nursing needs to rediscover its healing essence and return the caring arts to its practice. PostModern sets out how this must be done to secure nursing’s future as the caring-healing profession for this millennium.
