To Nursing Research & Development
: The caring theory influenced nursing researcher and developer to explore and illuminate the patterns of caring personality.
1.persons are caring by virtue of their humanness
2. persons live their caring moment to moment
3. persons are whole or complete in the moment
4. personhood is living life grounded in caring
5. personhood is enhanced through participating in nurturing relationships with caring others
6. nursing is both a discipline and a profession
Caring Theory is a grand nursing theory that can be used as a framework to guide nursing practice.
The focus on caring abilities of a nurse is a primary strength which was given emphasis on the theory of Nursing as Caring.
The assumptions presented by Boykin and Schoenhofer sounds analytical and acceptable. In addition, concepts and explanations are concise and easily understandable.
Development of emotional attachment to patients might be a weakness of this theory.
This theory can be used not only by nurses but by everyone who cares.
As a grand theory of Nursing as Caring, another major strength is it can be used with any other theory regardless of time and place.
The elements that make a holistic individual whole and complete were not enumerated.
There are limited explanations regarding the concepts of a person, man, environment and nursing.
The incompatibility of nursing process to this theory may be considered a limitation since all of us are using the nursing process in our profession.
Theory is highly applicable, useful and much effective if used together with other theories.

Theoretical sources:
Boykin and Schoenhofer's Nursing as Caring began when they both recognized the importance and human necessity continuing to develop ideas toward a comprehensive conceptual framework.
They both conceptualize the focus of nursing as "nurturing persons living, caring and growing in caring".
Their theory is grounded in caring that led Boykin and Schoenhofer to conceptualize the focus of nursing as caring.
thank you for listening!
