The authors O’Grady and VanGraafeiland (2012) provide informative insight into the role of the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) in bridging the gap in health care. The CNL role includes nine broad dimensions: 1) team manager, 2) educator, 3) client advocate, 4) clinician, 5) outcomes manager, 6) information manager, 7) systems analyst/risk anticipator, 8) member of the profession, and 9) lifelong learner (O’Grady & VanGraafeiland, 2012).

Caring in the nursing practice provides the presence of a touch, listening, spiritual caring, relieving pain, and a support system.

The theory incorporates human caring with healing and life-learning steps of human caring (Sitzman, 2017).

“Peplau applies principles of human relations to problems that arise at all levels. Throughout the nurse-patient relationship, the nurse, and patient work together to become more knowledgeable in the care process” (Deane and Fain, 2016, p. 36).
