This uniqueness leads the nurse theorists to explore the concepts of nursing the way they perceive reality in nursing, which creates an opportunity for nurses to develop their own theory. This paper describes how Peplau defines the four concepts of nursing metaparadigm: nursing, person, environment and health. The focus of Peplau’s theory is nurse-patient interaction. This occurs when the nurse, as a competent expert, seeks to understand the meanings of the client’s experiences. Indicating that the theory of interpersonal relations is derived from the metaparadigm concepts of person and nursing.
A holistic analysis of the effectiveness of communication in Nursing Practice Introduction: This essay is designed to analyse the effectiveness of communication in the nurse-to- patient relationships; drawing particular attention to the strengths and weaknesses of verbal communication among practitioners, nurses, clients and their significant others. Communication is one of the commonly stated competencies required to work effectively within any multi-professional environment (Suiter et al.2009) as cited in Thomas, Pollard & Sellman (2014). Arnold and Boggs (2011, pp163) defines communication as a two way process that uses a combination of verbal and non-verbal behaviours integrated for the purpose of sharing information. However, Goodman & Clemow (2010, pp55) argues that communication has gone beyond the mere exchange of information; nonetheless, other attributes of clients are being shared, like meanings, views or feelings. Based on these two premise, communication in nursing focuses on attending, listening, intervening and exploring the contents of information while observing the feelings of the patient (Arnold and Boggs, 2009, pp37-38).

Caring is an ethical code that fits into the therapeutic interventions that nurses incorporate into their plan of care (Watson, 1999). Watson's care model is not void intellect or the physiological aspect. The complexity of this model exists when nurses think they have to integrate caring into every intervention while remembering to carry out doctor’s orders but remaining efficient with his or her nursing clinical skills. If one would scrutinize Watson's theory on caring, one would infer that caring is not a skill that instructors can teach, it has to come from the human spirit within. Watson composed a work, Caring Science as Sacred Science, of her personal journey of healing from a distressing time in her life.
The book focuses on instruments for assessing caring in the nursing literature. The book presents caring instruments that captures multiple essences of caring; attributes, characteristics, ability, attitudes, and complex interrelated behaviors (Watson, 2008). The book is to help nurse leaders and scholars with an up-to-date- critique and compilation of instruments used to assess and measure caring (Watson, 2008). Assessment tools are additional instruments that can be incorporated along with the nursing process to expand nursing assessment skills. The tools presented are; Mini Mental State Exam, Social Support Questionnaire and the Perceived Stress Scale.
A Client Based Study Knowledge and Skills for Nursing Practice Part Two Written Assignment. A Client Based Case Study. The aim of this essay is to demonstrate the assessment process of a patient using the Roper Logan and Tierney (RLT) model of nursing framework, and to show how the nursing process works alongside this model. This will be established by including a holistic history of the patient and also by considering how the RLT model is applicable to this patient. The discussion of one nursing intervention will follow, showing how the nursing process is applied to patient care.
Dr. Watson’s theory is based on three main elements, (1) the carative factors, (2) the transpersonal caring relationship, and (3A) the caring occasion/caring moment. Carative factors stand in stark contrast to conventional medicine’s curative factors. In an attempt to “honor the human dimensions of nursing’s work and the inner life world and subjective experiences of the people we serve,” (Watson, 1997b, p. 50). Ten elements comprise the carative factors. In an exquisite example of the evolution of nursing when theory intersects with evidenced based practice, Watson introduced clinical caritas, which replaced the carative factors, (Watson, 2001).
The similarities and how the theories can be applied to nursing practice. Dorthea Orem’s theory of self-care and Jean Watson’s theory of human care. Jean Watson’s theory of human care is care that can be displayed and practiced interpersonally and caring consists of factors that result in the satisfaction of certain human needs (Current nurses, 2013). Watson’ theory is focused on the care of the mental and spiritual growth for both participants while seeking to restore the harmony within the personhood of the other (George, 2011). Dorthea Orem’s self-care model is focusing on care steered toward patient’s taking care of him or herself.
