Abstract

Because this term is being discussed so widely today, the Journal asked the nurse who coined it to explore its meaning. Her beliefs about what a nurse-clinician could mean to the profession, based on the philosophy of nursing she has developed in her 35 years of experience, seem to us to hold one answer to that age-old question: "What is nursing?"
