Keywords:Literature, Poetry, Debb Hurlock, HIC, 2002
This paper grew out of the unique and mysterious discovery of the prolific use of Canadian writer, Bronwen Wallaces poetry, by students and teachers in nursing. Before the actualinterpretation of the kinship of poetry and nursing, it is important to first consider a reconceived understanding of the interconnected relationship of epistemology and ontology that can be found within hermeneutic inquiry. This paper then explores characteristics of hermeneutic inquiry and its rich tradition, which may allow for a possible rendering of the meaning and value of the interdisciplinary relationship of nursing and poetry.
