New on Nursology.net – Aesthetic Knowing

We are delighted to announce an important new section on Nursology.net – Aesthetic Knowing in Nursing.

Aesthetic knowing in nursing is a way of knowing realities that are not empirically observable – the deep meanings in a situation. As nurses grasp these meanings, they can draw on their inner, creative resources to respond to the situation in ways move the situation from what is, to what is possible.

Even though these experiences are common, they are expressed in ways that are unique to each and every individual experience. People recognize common expressions of such experiences as anxiety, or fear, or love. But each person’s experience is unique.
