It could be that nursing might develop as a discipline without using a word to describe its characteristic mode of thinking, but it will have to make the mode explicit and it will have to have the same meaning for nurses anywhere. Should the nursing profession require to use a word, I propose the word nursology for the study of nursing, so that the logical pattern of derivation of an adverb could be followed.

AIM: To examine the association between components of safety climate and psychosocial hazards with safe work behaviors as well as test the moderating effects of psychosocial hazards on the safety climate-safety performance relationships. BACKGROUND: The effects of a strong safety climate on safety performance are well cited, however, the conditions that have an impact on this relationship warrant attention (Zohar, 2010). While the psychosocial hazards commonly reported by nurses are predictors of well-being and job attitudes, evidence suggests that these may also place boundaries on the effects of safety climate on safe work practices...
