They met in the 1950's while working at Catholic University. They began to share thoughts and ideas that evolved into their Humanistic Nursing Theory Nurses must be able to understand other viewpoints and be able to recognize how they differ from their own to prevent judgement and create room for understanding.

Incorporate reflection, correction and expansion around experiences and nurse-patient interactions. In order to apply this theory, create time and space for patient-nurse interactions, and recognize this may aid in better understanding and care of the patient. Recognize the client as a unique individual comprised of many shaping experiences, rather than a sum of their parts.
Think: 'What is their constitutedness?' The Theory Based on existential and phenomenological intersubjective relating both the nurse and the patient have within their own lived experience and the interaction between the two.

Through the Humanistic Nursing Theory, the nurse is able to connect with the patient and their struggle, enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of their situation and face the battle together. References
