In this article times and spaces of care offer the opportunity to reflect on nursing moving from an hermeneutic perspective. Our focus has been placed on what always undergo the tie that exists between every doing and the context in which it happens, rather that on the differences of practices in the various places and times of nursing activities--home care, hospital, the outpatients' department, and so on. According to the hermeneutic perspective, the outcome of nursing relation is not exclusively the re-solution of the nursing problem of the patient, but also--together with all of that--the possible experience of identity new construction (and re-birth) that every experience of disease represents.
