Abstract

Developments in the Art and Science of Nursing is one module of a Masters degree course organised by Cardiff University, Wales, and taught since the year 2003 in Bavaria, Germany. In an initial intensive two weeks of lectures and other educational activity, the aim of the module is to examine fundamental issues related to the history and development of nursing theory, science and the profession. Pre-conceived ideas are gently challenged. Nursing, knowledge and nursing knowledge is dened and redened. Insights emerge, lost personal motivations are remembered, potentials for the future appear on near and distant horizons. This paper records some of those issues as recounted by the course participants.
