  • Jean Watson's Caritas Quote

    Posted Mar 12, 2017 by George Byron Peraza-Smith

    It is art when a nurse, having experienced or realized the feelings of another, is able to detect and sense these feelings and in turn is able to express them in such a way that the other person is able to experience them more fully and release the feelings he or she has been longing to express.
