Jean Watson Theory: Human Caring
The Human caring theory of Jean Watson as explained by Sitzman & Eichelberger (2011) was developed in between the years of 1975 to 1979 while she engaged in teaching at the Colorado University. The theory was a combination of views from nursing, scholarly writing, and Watson’s doctoral studies. The theory attempted to bring focus, underpinnings and meaning to nursing as a discipline of emergence with unique knowledge, ethics, values, mission and practices to the society. The work in Jean’s theory also aimed at efforts of finding the common order and meaning to nursing which transcended on the sub specialty, specialty, and populations.

In addition, the authentic trans-personal concept of caring potentiate an exchange of pain control, comfort, a well being sense and transcendence of spiritual suffering making a patient to be viewed as complete and whole despite the disease.
