A caring theoretical model that can systematically be applied to the day-to-day practice of advance practice nurses is Jean Watsonâ€™s Theory of Human Caring. This theory can be applied to all areas of nursing, as it looks at nursing with a broad perspective (Watson, 2022). It was developed from Jean Watsonâ€™s personal belief system, and it suggests that the human spirit and life energies are connected by caring and are used to potentiate our capabilities (Watson, 2022). Jean Watsonâ€™s Theory of Human Caring is broad and abstract which provides valuable insights to nursing practice (Utley et al., 2018).
There are three concepts included in Watsonâ€™s theory of human caring, carative factors, caring relationships, and caring moments. SheÂ further develops her theory based on the Ten Caritas Processes which areÂ middle range theories.Â Middle range theories are narrow in scope and focus on specific aspects of the nursing professionÂ (Utley et al., 2018).Â They relate to specific concepts that apply to nursing practice and provide data that can be directly tested or measured (Utley et al., 2018).Â A middle range theory in Watsonâ€™s framework is that humanistic-altruistic values are held up by practicing loving-kindness with self and others. She defines the concepts as universal mottos that can be applied to our personal and work lives (Watson, 2022).
As determined by a qualitative study describing perspectives of human caring in interdisciplinary teams,Â Watson’s Human Caring Theory can guide relationships and help create a healing environment (Wei & Watson, 2019).Â According to researchers, applying human caring to interprofessional teams can lead to an awareness to care for self and others (Wei & Watson, 2019).Â

Research Based Evidence to inform Clinical Practice
Â As an advanced practice nurse (APN), one of the responsibilities is to use research-based evidence to inform clinical practice. According to Pol-CastaÃ±eda et al (2020) evidence-based practice (EBP) involves the integration of the best available research evidence, clinical expertise, and patient values and preferences to guide clinical decision-making. An example of applying research-based evidence to inform your clinical practice may be by
