RUYMAN BRITO BRITO, Pedro. Cuidadología: pensamientos sobre el nombre de nuestra disciplina. Ene. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.2. ISSN 1988-348X.

The science of care is, by definition, Nursology. Actually, this is a term that does not exist, of new creation, but that in essence and as concept, seems pertinent to define our discipline. It is, therefore, a neologism. A word invented as consecuense of the thoughts about the name of our discipline shared in professional social networks. It is interesting and timely for nursing as science to take into account the meaning of its key word, to care.

Keywords : Nursology; Nursing Theory; Epistemology; Discipline; Metaparadigm.
