CONTRERAS IBACACHE, Víctor. Evidence of the Art in Nursing. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.30, pp.326-331. ISSN 1695-6141.

In this article I try to examine the evidence of the art of caring in nursing. The following question arises through the pattern of aesthetic knowledge (art), which we could communicate in different ways such as journal articles, educational experiences, critique of scientific articles and more. The arguments behind this thinking are linked to the formality of communication, the ways to explore aesthetic knowledge and finally the influence of the artist as maker and critic of the art of nursing care. We have a challenge to recognize our work as an art, to make it known and inquire about it, which can be the focus of qualitative research methodology as a tool for collecting comprehensive language that identifies us.
