Jean Watson's Theory of Human Caring
Introduction
Watson’s Theory of Human Caring emerged to address the shortcomings of previous
theories by moving nursing away from the individual to the community. Pajnkihar et al. (2017)
demonstrate how Watson’s theory is founded on cultivating trustful and respectful relationships
as the foundation of caring. Based on ten carative factors, Watson posited that nurse-patient
relationships should be influenced by the lived experiences of both client and nurse whereby
their interactions create a caring moment that acknowledges their wholeness. The theory insists
on harmony among mind, body, and spirit and the unique role of each to health. Watson
emphasizes that nursing values should be based on explicit knowledge derived from multiple
sources including spiritual, existential, philosophical, and empirical. The present analysis
explores Watson’s Theory of Human Caring, its application in a conceptual study, and its
implications for nursing practice.
Theory Description
Developed in 1979, Watson’s Theory of Human Caring advanced carative factors, which
evolve into caritas processes, as the basic framework for nursing (Parker, 2001). Watson
intended to provide a guide to the core of nursing, the aspects necessary for therapeutic healing,
impacting both the patient and nurse (Parker, 2001). The principal argument of Watson’s Human
Caring Theory is the human-human component. The theory originated from Watson’s quest to
give new meaning and dignity to nursing and the subjective experiences of nurses and patients
(Watson, 2007). The ten carative factors include humanistic-altruistic values, faith and hope,
sensitivity, helping-trusting relationship, promoting and accepting expressing of feelings,

whether positive or negative, and problem-solving caring processes. Others include transpersonal
teaching-learning, providing a supportive, corrective, and protective environment, assisting with
meeting human needs, and allowing for spiritual dimensions (Watson, 2007). These factors
evolve into caritas processes. Watson urges nurses to embrace love and kindness, to inspire
authenticity by honoring deep beliefs and subjective worlds, to cultivate individual spirituality
and self-awareness (Watson, 2007; Wei & Watson, 2018). The theory champions for
development of authentic caring relationships, allowing for positive and negative feelings to
connect with deeper spirit of oneself and the others, and caring-healing practices being creatively
applied (Watson, 2007). Other caritas processes include being part of genuine learning-tea...
