This beautifully produced full-color book honors nurses who honor the art that is inside them; The HeART of Nursing. Each painting, each poem, each diorama and essay conveys the depth of feeling that lives inside every nurse everywhere.
This second edition features more than 90 nurse-artist contributors, nearly 100 pages of new content, and three new chapters. These additions include Art in Research, Delicate Artistry: Nursing for Children, and In the Process of Becoming a Nurse-Artist featuring the work and story of Christina Impoco Nieves, repeat winner of the Sigma Theta Tau International Pinnacle Award for Media: Arts. It features more than 60 new pieces of art, including paintings, essays, poetry, exemplars, sculptures, photographs, and drawings. It also includes an extensive, new contributors’ index that identifies the chapter and page number of each nurse-artists’ work for convenient reference. Now in hardcover, we have included a bound-in book-marker ribbon to keep track of your favorite piece or to simply mark your place.
Words cannot do justice to this beautiful, visual feast.
