JeanWatson’s “Theory of Human ” is concerned with the processof taking care of patients by the nurses. It focuses on how theprocess grows into better plans to promote health, restore health andprevent illness (Wayne, 2016). The conceptual framework pillars ofthe South University are identified and related to the theory ofcaring by Jean Watson.

is the primary reason for nursing, it taps into a nurse’s empathyfor the patients. It promotes better health than medical cure can.Through caring, nurses care for a patient’s growth throughaccepting the patient as he is and work towards making him better byproviding a safe, compassionate, sensitive, and quality service. Oncenurses obtain this trait, they become autonomous, altruistic, respecthuman dignity, and gain integrity (Wayne, 2016).

Thecomplicated process of informational sharing between or amongindividuals known as communication enables nurses and patients makechoices and actions on the kind of relationship they will have. Thetranspersonal concept of caring needs a human-to-human relationshipwhere the actions of a nurse affects and is affected by the patientand this can be achieved only by effective and efficientcommunication (Wayne, 2016).

Thecarative factor of using “systemic creative problem solving caringprocess,” utilizes critical thinking. Nurses are able to learn, andgain important knowledge through it (Wayne, 2016).It includes theprocesses of inquiry, analysis, reason, evidence-based research anddecision making (Southern University [SU], 2012).

Accordingto Watson, caring is not transmitted through genes but by theprofession`s culture as a unique way of coping with its environment(Wayne, 2016). The professionalism of nursing is constituted in thecompetency, ethicality, legality, political, and economic issues oftheir daily practices and reflected and enforced by the leaders intheir respective fields (SU, 2012).

Holismis recognizing that a patient is composed of complete, complicated,integrated systems that include the mind, body, and spirit as aunified and an entire process (SU, 2012). Nurses attempt to achieveoptimal wellness of a patient through the caritas processes bypracticing kindness and lovingness as a conscious act. Beingauthentic, present, and enabling a belief system that the patient isbeing cared (Wayne, 2016).

Nursesdevelop and sustain a genuine caring relationship and are alwayspresent to support the emotional feelings of the patient. They arealways aware of the fact that they are a part of the caring processand engage in the caring-healing practices. Nurses also create anenvironment at the levels of physical, non-physical, subtle, andconscious where comfort beauty, peace, dignity, and wholeness arepromoted (Wayne, 2016).

Thepractice of nursing has its basis in caring, which according toWatson includes the scientific research processes of assessment,planning intervention and evaluation. Assessment includes observing,identifying and reviewing a problem and forming a hypothesis. Thecreation of a care plan allows the nurse to understand how thevariables in a case are to be measured and the kind of data to becollected. Intervention entails implementation of the care plan.Evaluation involves the interpretation of received data and theresults (Wayne, 2016).

Nursesapply the concepts of caring in their daily practice. By practicingprofessionalism, they will be able to use critical thinking, in theircommunication with the patient to create a holistic system ofapproach to ensure the optimal wellness of a patient. The conceptualframework pillars act as a vital benchmark for the nursing profession(SU, 2012).
