Anne Boykin & Savina Schoenhofer Theory of
Nursing as
Caring Thank you for watching ! (: Nursing is concerned with the broad spectrum of human living rather than the narrow concept of health. Health Anne Boykin Savina Schoenhoher Definition of Nursing Education – Bachelors from Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Masters from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and Doctorate from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Dean and professor of the College of Nursing at Florida Atlantic University Director for the Christine E. Lynne Center for Caring Education - Undergraduate and Graduate in nursing, psychology and counseling from Wichita State University, PhD in education foundations and administration from Kansas State University Professor of Graduate Nursing at Cora S. Balmat School of Nursing at Alcon State University in Natchez, Mississippi, & Professor at University of Mississippi’s School of Nursing in Jackson, Mississippi. Also manages website and forum on the theory of nursing as caring. Viewed as both a disicpline and a profession. The intention is “nurturing persons living caring, and growing and caring” (Boykin & Schoenhofer, 2006, p. 336). Persons are viewed as caring by virtue of their humanness. Persons are not viewed as segmented into parts but rather as a whole. Person Not explicitly defined, but "environmental pressures" are mentioned in relation to nursing roles (Boykin & Schoenhofer, 2006, p. 337). Environment General Focus Nursing is both a discipline and a profession. Persons are whole or complete in the moment, and are caring by their virtue of their humanness. Personhood is living life grounded in caring, and is enhanced through participating in nurturing relationships. Contributions A school nurse could treat each student as an individual, listen to their problems, show them that they care and respond accordingly. A nursing instructor can encourage learning and have the ability to apply theories to every day nursing experiences, and also empower nurses to take responsibility by gaining knowledge Examples Allows nurses to continually grow on the basis of caring. When a nurse enters the work environment, they learn to be caring and understanding, and how to live in the moment. Nurses also grow in the areas of strength, knowledge and support. We feel that the Theory of Nursing as Caring is a good way to teach nurses and aspiring nurses to respect the client in any situation. It is a good example of nursing growth and shows that caring is a lifetime process. Personal Evaluation Jacey Martinis &
