Caring is an essential value in the personal and professional lives of nurses. This book is a response to the call for a theory of nursing as caring. The Nursing as Caring theory is about a unique way of living, caring in the world. This theory provides a view that can be lived in all nursing situations and can be practiced alone or in combination with other theories.Please note there is a ten copy minimum order for this title.

Unfortunately this book reads in a very tangled way. The formatting of the sentences felt forced and awkward. There was a lack of fluency. I almost felt like I was reading excerpts from a drunken poet. I don't mean that to be cruel, I was just honestly puzzled by the structure of it all. I am disappointed because I gained nothing except a headache from attempting to decipher the text. I ended up not finishing the book.
I'll give it 2 stars because the topic is at least legit and has value! I hope this book is later re-released as "updated" and rewritten by a ghost writer or in a more clear way.
