“Jean Watson’s Caring Theory. Developed in 1979 and revised in 1985 and 1988b, Watson views the “carative factors” as a guide for the core of nursing. She uses the term carative to contrast conventional medicine’s curative factors. Her carative factors attempt to “honor the human dimensions of nursing’s work and the inner life world and subjective experiences of the people we serve” (Watson, 1997b, p.50). The core principles of Watson’s caring theory are: practice of loving-kindness and equanimity, authentic presence, enabling deep belief of other (patient, colleague, family, etc.), cultivation of one’s own spiritual practice toward wholeness of mind/body/spirit beyond ego, “being” the caring-healing environment, and allowing miracles (openness to the unexpected and inexplicable life event).”

Caring Theory and HeartMath: A Match Made in Heaven
At Chesapeake Regional Medical Center (CRMC), the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) created the Professional Nursing Council (PNC), which is a governing body to help create more involvement from nursing when it comes to nursing practice. In the Fall of 2008, the PNC decided to adopt a nursing theorist to help guide their practice and with input of the bedside nurses, they chose Jean Watson’s Theory of Caring.
Jean Watson’s theory was well-received, and nurses were eager to bring care back to the bedside but were struggling with how to incorporate the theory in an already overwhelming work environment. Our CNO went to a conference and met Robert Browning and found out about HeartMath. She thought this would be a good thing to bring to CRMC because the nurses have tremendous demands put on them and are feeling more stressed and overwhelmed than ever.
A HeartMath steering committee was developed and created a plan to get as many nurses signed up for HeartMath as possible within a year. Several nurses were trained to teach the HeartMath workshop to accomplish this goal.
As we presented HeartMath, we introduced it as a modality to the Jean Watson Theory of Caring. The motto was, “You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others.” The first half of the workshop focused on the science and the HeartMath tools. We felt it was important to keep that as the foundation of the workshop. However, we felt it important to introduce Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring and her 10 Caritas processes into the class and show how they are related.

“Although cultural competency is vital in the delivery of healthcare, this is not a short term commitment and is equally applicable in all areas of the society. In law enforcement cultural diversity is posing a major problem and certain quarters are befuIDled on how to deal with this new face of America. The Movie industry as seen recently by the Oscar are afraid of the inevitable changing of the guards.”
