(1977). Nursing ethics and the ethical nurse. American Journal of Nursing, 77:5, p. 846.

The emphasis placed on scientific and technical knowledge is indispensable to the development of the craft - but it is imperfectly achieved without the intellectual skills that are the special province of the humanities
