Scholarly work in philosophy, positive psychology, and other applied disciplines reconceptualize humilityas an important element of reflection, change, and growth, but the change has not been mirrored in the nursing literature. Humilityhas a rich heritage and may be an implicit but fundamental construct in nursing.
