Main Article Content

Gulsum Conoglu


Historically, the basis of the knowledge called as education philosophy has been based on understanding the components of philosophy defined as metaphysics, epistemology and axiology by Greeks. Philosophy is a value system required in relieving of scientific nursing knowledge. The values and beliefs in the education program developed provide suitability, shape and consistency for a program. Organizations providing nursing education should define philosophy clearly during developing and implementing of an education program. While doing this, they should take into consideration organization’s values, personal beliefs of lecturers as well as many social and political factors. Consequently, the philosophy that forms the basis of curriculum and necessary for revealing the scientific nursing information has been based on metaphysics to understand the culture, the real and the existent; on epistemology to question what and how we know; on axiology constituents for our values that distinguish the good from bad.
