Abstract

Nursing is a holistic practice in which the science and technology of curing is cradled by the art of human caring within a healing context. Caring is the human capacity to connect with another from a place of compassion and unconditional support in the process of growth and actualizing one's potential in the face of human challenge. Healing reflects the process of one's search for wholeness in the ultimate expression of one's unique being. This wisdom is multidisciplinary and interconnecting, integrating the multidimensional aspects of the human process engaged in the art and science of healing.
