NURTURING THE CARE WITHIN “It is when we include caring and love in our work and our life that we discover and affirm that nursing, like teaching, is more than just a job; it is also a life-giving and life receiving career for a lifetime of growth and learning” (Parker, 2001, p. 345). Since its inception, nursing and its theories have evolved in many ways. Many theories have been developed that focus on various things to distinguish nursing care from medical practice such as Katharine Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory, Patricia Benner’s Novice to Expert Theory, and Madeleine Leininger’s Transcultural Nursing Theory. One theorist, Jean Watson, has developed the “Theory of Human Caring” which focuses on how nurses care for their patients. Watson’s Theory of Human Caring philosophy is used to guide new models of caring and healing practices in diverse settings (Parker, 2001).
