Watson’s Theory The Theory of Human Caring was developed between 1975-1979, while Watson was teaching at the University of Colorado. In an attempt to bring meaning and focus to nursing as an emerging discipline and distinct profession with its own unique values, knowledge, and practices, Watson combined her views of nursing, informed by her doctoral studies in educational-clinical and social psychology. The work also was influenced by an effort to find common meaning and order to nursing that transcended settings, populations, specialty, subspecialty areas, and so forth.
