Praxis: The essential nursing construct

Cathrine Fowler, Denise McGarry

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Praxis is grounded as an essential underpinning construct of nursing. Praxis is advocated to be the route to allow nurses to be emancipated from 'regimes of truth' and reified bureaucratic structures. Praxis is also described as the vehicle to take nurses on the journey of continued professional and profession growth.
