CULTURE CARE MODEL AND TRANSPERSONAL CARING2Leininger's Culture Care Model and Watson's Transpersonal CaringMadeleine Leininger and Jean Watson are nursing theorists who have nursing theories that are still taught and practiced in modern nursing. The Theory of Cultural Care by Leininger and the Theory of Human Caring by Watson are considered grand theories that describe caring asthe vital scope of the discipline of nursing[ CITATION Smi15 \l 1033 ]. Leininger's Theory of Cultural Care DiversityMadeleine Leininger is a well-known and respected nursing theorist for the development of her Theory of Culture Care Diversity and University, which is also known as the TransculturalNursing Theory. This theory was developed in the 1950s with further expansion happening in 1995 and 2002. Transcultural nursing is a branch of nursing whose focus is on providing therapeutic nursing care to patients concerning their cultural values and health-illness context.Case Study Franklin-JonesMrs. Franklin-Jones was admitted from the Emergency Room to Cardiac Intensive Care one week ago with a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. She has recovered as expected and is moving to the cardiac step-down unit today. She is talking with Nurse Julie Hernandez, as she gets settled in her new room, "I was really surprised when I got that bad pain in my chest! I knewI had high pressure, but I just didn't think it was that bad. I try to take my medicine like they told me to in the clinic but sometimes I forget. I guess that I need to study those papers they gave me about what foods I should eat and not eat. I better take care of myself! Momma had bad pressure,and it killed her! Who knows—I may even have to learn to cook different than I was taught in Jamaica! I may have to let Tomas do the cooking. He's got more time at home now than I do since he lost his job. There isn't too much time between my shifts at the school cafeteria and my new housecleaning job. You know my sister is coming up from Jamaica to see me. I think she is bringing me some bush tea. That'll set me right!"Factors to be Considered for DischargeWhen getting ready to discharge Mrs. Franklin-Jones, the nurse should begin with information on a cardiac diet. This education should also be based upon Leininger's Culture Care Model and
