“Care can be considered simply an ethical task and thus a burden of one more thing to do, or it can be considered a commitment to attending to and becoming enthusiastically involved in the patient’s needs” (Applying the Ethics of Care to your Nursing Practice, page 116). In this model, nurses need to be knowledgeable about human behavior and responses to health problems, individual needs, how to respond to others, and the strengths and limitations of the patient and family. The nurse also comforts and offers compassion, and empathy to the patient and family. There are many concepts in Jean Watson’s Theory of caring. The three major concepts that will be discussed are: transpersonal caring relationship, caring occasion/caring moment and the ten caritas processes.
Jean Watson’s theory shows a connection between the patient and the nurse and not just making the patient another number, yet bringing them closer to actually providing the patient with the best care possible. Caring for patients promotes growth within the patient and also caregiver; having a caring environment accepts a person as he or she is, and it looks to what he or she may become in the future (Woodward, 2015, p. 324). Caring for patients is the central part of what nursing care is. Caring promotes the notion that every human being strives for closeness with other human beings and with nature around them (Cherry & Jacob, 2014, p. 84). Jean Watson believes that taking
70). I believe that the patient’s needs always take priority. A good nurse-patient relationship is important when taking care of patients. If a patient can trust the nurse taking care of him or her and they have a good rapport, the patient’s experience will be positive. Peplau’s theory is considered to be an interaction theory, an interaction theory, “revolve[s] around the relationships nurses form with patients” (Colley, 2003, p. 34).
Behaviors which reflect altruism are showing an understanding of cultures, beliefs, and perspective of others, advocating for patients, taking risks on behalf of patients, and mentoring other professionals. Autonomy according to Taylor is the right to self-determination (2008). The nurse must respect the patient’s rights. The nurse should listen and act according to the patient’s wishes and needs not bullying him into cooperating with his treatment plan. The nurse shows such value by planning care in partnership with patients, honoring the right of patients to make decisions about healthcare, and providing information so that patients can make informed choices.
If the care relationship is positive, then the patient will allow others to help them in many ways. This is related to the care in nursing, because patients rely on the nurses in the hospitals to take care of them. If it is a positive relationship, they are more likely to let the nurses help. If the relationships are negative, they may lead to a struggle in obtaining care, couples with increased suffering. This supports the idea that the nurse-patient is central to nursing and perhaps the most effective way nurses can influence patient health outcomes.

Self-awareness helps nurses to identify several problems that might be a cause I providing better care”(Nancy Burns, 2005).

We as nurses are here to restore health and prevent further health detriments through caring for our patient. While giving care and preventing illness is the central idea of nursing, none of it would be possible without the foundation of knowledge learned in nursing school. A requirement for professional status would be “A profession has a theoretical body of knowledge leading to defined skills, abilities, and norms.” This statement summarizes so much of what I love about nursing. Nurses are constantly throughout the day putting their extensive knowledge to use. This in turn shows how well defined the skills and abilities of a nurse actually are.
It should have a logical and congruence, coherence and continuity. In my philosophy of the nursing, Nurses have responsibilities to the public to provide safe and secure environment, and patient centered care. Patients are individuals who require care and attention. We as nurses should use our nursing judgment to help meet the patient needs , and as an advocators should encourage them in the decision making and in their treatment plan. We as a nurse also have commitment to learn and improve our knowledge and skills .
