Overview

Although the major part of this book focuses on rethinking nursing education, the essence of this book, the notion of “being called to care” is of relevance to all human service professionals who are responsible for ministering to the needs of others. The authors set the context for what it means to be “called to care” and explore ways of responding to a call. The three themes of vulnerability, authenticity, and structure are presented as foundational. Using a hermeneutic, interpretive approach to inquiry, insights are presented to uncover ways of conceptualizing and practicing curriculum through processes that join persons together in dialogue and reflection.
