two areas that need more informations and development.

JEAN WATSON THE CARING THEORISTof all nursing care. Nurses are known for being warm, loving, sympathetic, empathetic, understanding, caring and sensitive to their patients. Nurse are able to fulfill the needs of others. Fulfilling the needs of others helps the nurse to be a better nurse and promote surmisable outcomes for each patient. Because healthcare is alway changing, nurses must build a strong foundation. We can build strong foundations through theories, frameworks and the knowledge that is acquired through theories. The framework for Caring Science and practices suggest that nursing, individually and collectively contributes to the preservation, humanity and seeks to sustain caring in instances where it is threaten (Watson, 2016) The moral idea, caring factors and processes also suggest the evolution and deepening of humankind and serve to sustain humanity (Watson, 2016). ConclusionIn conclusion the science of caring remind us to never forget about one’s own wellness, health and abilities. They also place meaning to why nurse impact the lives of their patient and family members. Nursing provide an unique and wholesome type of care, that promote healing and wellness, they make the patient feel safe and secured which lead to well defined nurse to patient relationships. Jean Watson’s theory join forces and combine the physical and emotional needs of each patient. Also never forgetting the impact or important foundations of emotional stability, acceptance, respect, and healing a whole person and not just their parts (Watson, 2013).This theory shine the light on the fact that every patient deserves to be treated and cared for. Again they are not just another or mere disease, but yet they are the children or parent of someone. As I conclude this paper, I must emphasize on the the practice of caring; caring shouldbe at the center of each nursing level, whether it is a licensed practical nursing, nurse educator, chief nursing officer or certified nursing assistant. As I transition to a new role, I must remember
JEAN WATSON THE CARING THEORISTwhy I was chosen for this position in life, to care and treat each patient as if they were my children, mother, father or love one.
