Science, Practice, and Philosophy

Nurses who conduct research have a longstanding interest in
questions of nursing knowledge. Nursing Knowledge is a clear
and well-informed exposition of the philosophical background to
nursing theory and research.   Nursing Knowledge
answers such fundamental questions as: How is nursing theory
related to nursing practice?  What are the core elements of
nursing knowledge? What makes nursing research distinctive as
nursing research?  It examines the history of the
philosophical debates within nursing, critiques the arguments,
explains the implications and sets out to rethink the philosophical
foundation of nursing science.



Nursing Knowledge begins with philosophical problems that
arise within nursing science.  It then considers various
solutions with the help of philosophical ideas arguingargues that
nurses ought to adopt certain philosophical positions because they
are the best solutions to the problems that nurses encounter. The
book argues claims that the nursing standpoint has the potential to
disclose a more complete understanding of human health than the
common disease-and-dysfunction views. Because of the relationship
to practice, nursing science may freely draw theory from other
disciplines and nursing practice unifies nursing research. By
redefining theory and philosophy,With a new philosophical
perspective on nursing science, the so-called relevance gap between
nursing theory and practice can be closed.



The final chapter of the book ?redraws the map?, to
create a new picture of nursing science based on the following
principles:


  • Problems of practice should guide nursing research



  • Practice and theory are dynamically related



  • Theory research must provide the knowledge base necessary for
    nurse interventions, training, patient education, etc.



  • Nursing research should develop midrange theories and its
    results are nursing theory is strengthened when it uses theories
    confirmed by is integrated with other disciplines

    nursing research
