Invited Guest Editorial: Nursing as Interpretation

  • Graham McCaffrey University of Calgary, Faculty of Nursing

Abstract

In this editorial, the context of a graduate class on hermeneutic research is described. Two papers were selected from the class that represent one of the course assignments that requires students to write a written response to the statement: "Nursing is an interpretive practice." The papers that correspond to this editorial are discussed and an interpretation of the master's students' efforts to take up the statement brings us back to the intent of the course.
