Watson theory of human caring can be used by any vocation in any location. It surpasses cultural and global dissimilarities. It can be used in any setting from the emergency department to long-term nursing care settings. Watson’s theory is relevant to social and cross-cultural areas because caring is shared nonverbally in a language that exceeds cultural diversities.
