Empirical referent studies support Watson’s theory by affirming the existence of a positive relationship between patient satisfaction and nurse caring behaviors in numerous clinical settings. Nursing education plays a significant role in the achievement the caring concept and is accentuated throughout the nurse's professional career (Labrague, Mcenroe-Petitte, Papathanasiou, Edet, & Arulappan, 2015). Patient satisfaction is a measurable component used to determine the care received from nurse clinicians. Stroehlein (2016) indicates that although there is a large constituent of many occupations, caring in the nursing occupation assumes an exceptional meaning with a higher purpose. Caring is multifaceted and comparable have determined individuals whose intention is to open the eyes of the society through rendering high quality patient care (Stroehlein, 2016).

It is the person and their physical, emotional, and psychological needs that are the basic focus of nursing’s attention. In order to care for a patient, the nurse must incorporate all these needs. For example, providing reassurance with an anxious patient who just finished hip surgery. Care also plays a major part when taking care of a unique patient. Caring influences my personal philosophy because it is the most important aspect of nursing. Caring is the practice of “authentic presence” (Berkhospice, 2016, p. 1). Anybody can give out medications and change a wound dressing, but a great nurse will provide care with meaningful human-to-human
Nurse’s role has a unique contribution in the interprofessional team. The interprofessional team are group of individuals in a various healthcare disciplines communicating and working together towards common goals to provide quality, individualized care for patients. Each team members from different profession and occupation collaborates, supports, enhances, and provides knowledge, skills, and attitudes to coordinate processes and interventions.

Growing up in Eastern Europe in the midst of the social and political turmoil, I learned very early that success in life depends on the availability of opportunity coupled with personal efforts, determination, and hard work. I was inspired by the “American Dream,” which, ultimately, became a part of my dreams and aspirations. Coming to the United States opened up that door of opportunities I had desired for so long. Having no family or source of financial support in the foreign country, I completed the Basic Life Support course and became an Emergency Medical Technician. Working on the front-line of Emergency Services, I enjoyed that rush of adrenaline of being able to provide medical aid and emotional support to the people in the worst times
In the past decade or so, increasing numbers of hospitals and academic programs in the United States and other parts of the world, have begun to use Watson’s Theory of Human Caring in very specific ways. Watson’s theory can serve as a guide to changing nursing practice. It can change the culture of hospital nursing and academic nursing (Watson, 2009). Watson’s caring theory can be incorporated into many current nursing interventions. Some of them would include active listening, preventing falls, preventing illness, controlling pain, promoting self-care, and restoring health. Watson’s caring theory promotes health through caring, love, and looking at the patient as a whole person (Sitzman,
Nursing interventions are like roadmaps directing the best ways to provide nursing care. (Ackley, B., Ladwig, G., Makic, M., 2017). It
Nursing models and theories provide guidance to nurses and it gives a rationale for various nursing interventions (Hood, 2018). The Growth Model of Change helps people to realize their full potential. In the nursing practice, the growth model of change is used as the framework, which encompasses the caring theory or complexity theory (Hood, 2018). In this paper, I will focus on the Jean Watson’s Human Caring Science Theory and how it plays a major role in nursing care. Caring helps influence the ways in which people think, feel, and behave in relation to one another (Ozan, Okumus, & Lash, 2015). Caring in the nursing practice provides the presence of a touch, listening, spiritual caring, relieving pain, and a support system.
The concept of caring incorporates empathy, connection, and the ability to transpose these concepts into compassionate, ethical, sensitive, appropriate care to individuals in their nursing practice (Ray, 2015). CNMU ascertains the four domains of nursing as:
It is very easy to get wrapped up in the day to day tasks that we complete as nurses. But in order to give our patients the best possible care, we must look at our day through a holistic lens. The following essay will outline the theory as created by the “lady with the lamp” Florence Nightingale. We will look at the different components that are important to a patient’s health and outline on to incorporate these components into current practice.
Obesity is a major problem in the United States today. Neil (2015) relates social factors of obesity with how society, which includes health care professionals, sees overweight persons. There is a stigmatization that is associated with being obese. This stigmatization of being obese results in a lack of respect (Neil 2015. p 2-3). This lack of respect can make the patient become self-conscious and closed off. As a nurse, one must take this into consideration when caring for a patient who is extremely over weight. When such a patient is seeking care, they frequently become even more vulnerable due to a new environment and stress, therefore making it more difficult
Values and beliefs of nursing and assumptions about nursing, clients and the world in general.
The therapeutic nurse-client relationship is established for the purpose of promoting client health and well-being.
Dorothea Orem was an extravagant nursing theorist whose theories were first published in 1971 (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). Orem established several fascinating theories of nursing which are still are current in today’s nursing. Orem proposed three nursing theories that are identified as: self-care theory, theory of Self-care deficit and theory of nursing system (Dorothea Orem 's Self-Care Theory, 2014). Orem’s nursing theories are defined as a grand theory (Nursing Theories: An Overview, 2014). Grand theory is defined as an abstract outline under which the key conceptions and values of the discipline can be acknowledged (Nursing Theories: An Overview, 2014). Orem’s theories mainly proposed that
