Nursing as an Aesthetic Praxis is a work into how we be, approached through narratives of nursing. As an inquiry it is both phenomenological and metaphysical as they relate to being. Being is unfolded as a process by which and through which we create and recreate ourselves for the purpose of consciously knowing that which we already are. Dis-ease is positioned as one result of how we be in this process, that as an act of ongoing creation can be recreated. To come to this place of knowing is to begin to know Love. In this way, Nursing as an Aesthetic Praxis is really a love story, a story about a way to love that when known by nurses will enable nursing to be an art of healing.
