Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN (Slippery Rock University )
Description: This book links the theory of Health as Expanding Consciousness (HEC) with nursing knowledge development, clinical practice, education and curriculum development, research, and nursing administration. It provides examples of the application of HEC.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide insight into the application of HEC in various aspects of nursing practice by providing examples of using the model in clinical practice. This is a worthwhile purpose since nursing is being asked to justify clinical practice outcomes.
Audience: The target audience for this book is nurses who teach, research, and practice within the framework of HEC. The contributors are nurses who practice within the framework of HEC.
Features: Part one presents an overview of HEC including Newman's most recent thinking on the concept of caring within the context of HEC. Part two provides selected models and exemplars used by practitioners and researchers applying the models in a variety of settings. Part three focuses on application of HEC with selected participants. Part four focuses on application of HEC in nursing education. The final part is devoted to a dialogue between Margaret Newman, Sister Callista Roy, and Jean Watson focusing on the movement of nursing knowledge development toward theory convergence. The book concludes with suggestions for the further development and testing of the HEC models.
Assessment: This book should be useful for practitioners using HEC as a framework for practice and research. It is also must reading for those desiring to learn about a nursing theory and see it operationalized.
