Summary "When there is congruence between who nurses are and what they do, nurses bring their souls to work. This balance is experienced as a healing presence that encourages the patient's self-healing capacity." "Through this book, JoEllen Koerner explores ways - scientific, creative, and spiritual - of understanding the power and impact of this "healing presence" on both the caregiver and on those receiving care." "For all nurses and nursing students, this book offers practical application strategies for integrating the nursing process with the nurse's presence and a framework for personal and professional development."--Jacket.
