 The theory that will guide me in my nursing practice is the Watson theory. This theory was proposed by Jaen Watson that helps to define the science of caring and human caring. The core practices and principles proposed in this theory are that; 1.) Nurses have to practice equanimity and loving kindness. b.) Nurses should also demonstrate authentic presence by showing deep belief of their patients, family and colleagues. C.) nurses should provide a caring environment. d.) nurses should cultivate their spiritual practice of the wholeness of the spirit/body/mind beyond ego. F.) should be open to miracles in the case of inexplicable and unexpected life events. The relational showing of care to oneself and other is  on the philosophical/ethical and moral foundation of values and love. The transpersonal caring relationship as proposed in this theory means the need to show moral commitment in enhancing and protecting human dignity and showing love and respect to other persons (Nursing Theories, 2012).
