Abstract

This article explores the humanization of contemporary nursing practice.While the biomedical view considers persons as the composite of parts, thereby supporting the traditional nursing process of prescribing and predicting in order to fix or complete persons, nursing as a reflective practice within the unitary-transformative paradigm instead fosters the wholeness of persons as always complete considering them whole beings. Nursing within a human science perspective is the appreciation of persons  asco-actors and experts in their own care.The application of “humanization of caring” process of nursing is illustrated as a transformative model of practice.
