Abstract: As nursing becomes both an art and science in contemporary practice, it raises the question: Do we, as nurse educators, really understand and teach the meaning of concepts such as holistic care? Our search to learn about teaching holistic care has led to the epistemology, which rests on our dialogue and reflective stories derived from the concept of spirituality as searching for meaning. We feel our work has implications for spirituality as a foundation for nursing education and practice.
