Main Article Content

Abstract

Ethics, empirics, and esthetics seem to address the essential nature of nursing knowledge within the
human health experience. Reality, truth and existence are the empirical elements of the human experience.
Reflexivity conveyed in esthetic ways illuminates the nature and context of humanness. Art as experience
uncovers meanings and significance of lived situations. Ethical values are dictated by philosophical, theoretical,
social and cultural perspectives. Conflicts primarily address the need for ethical solutions stemming from
perceived versions of truths. The conditions that engender truthful solutions on questions about health and
well-being are highly likely situational dilemmas. Through art as representation of what is real and true,
labeled and displayed for sensory appreciation, the ethical and empirical ways of appreciating human health
and well-being become foundational realities for nursing practice, sustainable in esthetic ways as integral to
human health and well-being.
