Watson's Theory of Human Caring
Theory of caring, Watson has taught me how healthcare providers should practice loving, and kindness to our patients and others. Watson’s theory is not only for patients, but it is for everyone who works in the healthcare industry. Loving, and caring for each other would establish a trusting relationship that will be remembered for a long time. There are four carative factors that I practice on daily basis which they are the humanistic-altruistic system of values, development of sensitivity to oneself and others, promoting and accepting the expression of positive and negative feelings, and the supportive, protective, and/or corrective mental, physical, societal, and spiritual environment. I am going to represent an example of how I have been practicing these four carative factors on daily nursing basis.

Caring Moment
Watson (2006) described caring as, “acknowledged as transpersonal, involved with the one caring as well as the one being cared for, and it is mutual” (p 90).   According to Watson in the caring moment, this moment can become a part of our life history for each other, and the relationship will form deeper between nurse and patient. The caring moment will initiate a healing ability. Nurses will need to show that they really care for their patients during this historical moment by listening to patient attentively, acknowledge how the patients feel, and make eye contact. Alligood (2010) stated, “Nursing goal in caring process is to help patients gain a higher degree of harmony within the mind body and spirit” (p120). The goal is the protection, enhancement, preservation of dignity, humanity, wholeness, and inner harmony of the patient. Human caring is the actual moment where nurse and patient decide on choices and actions. (Alligood, 2010).   According to Watson (2005), caring is the private human acts for someone to reach out and touch a patient at a deeper level beyond diagnosis alone, body part, or protocol.
