These actions; theory, research, and evidence-based care will shape nursing’s values and goals to improve the quality of care and health of individuals, families, and society. This makes theory the foundation of nursing as a caring profession. Dossey in 2008, through her grand theory of integral nursing, concludes that at this point and time in nursing there is a demand for a new language. A language that takes the best theoretical evidence known in science and the art of nursing, to have positive impacts on holistic and human caring theories and modalities. It is through these theoretical approaches and world views that nursing will be better prepared to share the depth of their knowledge, expertise, and critical-thinking skills for complementary assistance to others in creating health and healing.

Nursing Practice According to the IOM’s report, nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training; however due to state regulations and licensing, scope-of-practice is faced with many limitations. Gennaro (2012) states, “A number of different initiatives are underway to en-sure that nurses are able to practice to their full ability... The goal of these endeavors is to ensure that advanced practice nurses are able to practice to the full scope of their education.” I constantly ask myself, is the juice worth the squeeze? Meaning is the end result worth the hardship I’m about to
The nursing process is beneficial to the patient, the nurse, and the nursing profession. It ensures that a high quality of care is provided to patients and enhances the patient’s participation in all stages of the process. It provides personal and professional growth to nurses and leads to job satisfaction.

Watson’s Theories of Human Caring NUR /403Theories and Models of Nursing Practice Priscilla Ricardo Introduction. Watson defined therapeutic nurse-patient relationship as, “ Nurse’s are expected to portray and act professionally, legally and ethically in order to established an effective nurse-client relationship. The significance of an effective nurse patient’s relationship is critical to maintenance, promotion and recovery of patients in every aspect of life. It is central to meeting the patients care needs and therefore communication between the nurse and patients is the foundation on which this relationship is built. The techniques to establish a warm and mutual nurse-client relationship are vital to understand and needless to say important in practice in order to come up with healthy and quality outcome for the patient as well as the nurse.
They can ensure smooth handoffs as the patient transitions through the continuum. They often prevent medication errors, reduce infection rates and facilitate patient transitions from hospital to home.

Demonstrating understanding of the person, health and environment helps to drive nursing practice and patient care. (AONE, 2010) Leadership is not just managing but facilitating.
Introduction Therapeutic communication is the corner stone of good practice and paramount to the provision of good care. Doheny et al. (2007) observed that when certain skills are used to facilitate communication between nurse and client in a goal directed manner,the therapeutic communication process occurs. According to McCabe (2004) patient centred communication is a basic component of nursing and facilitates the development of a positive nurse - patient relationship. Nurses have a great opportunity to shape the future of the nursing practice through therapeutic communication Armold&Boggs, (2011).
Ghaye et al (2000, pg 6) explain “reflection has the potential to transform both who we are and what we are able to do, for and with others in our healthcare worlds”. Reflective practice can help shape peoples values, which are fundamentally important as they make healthcare professionals the people they are. Reflection allows healthcare professionals to gain a sense of situation as it occurs and therefore gain a sense of clarity. Reflective practice permits health care professionals to assess the impact of their work on service users, families and their colleagues. This is essential for people working within health and social care as it improves clinical practice.
