Evolution of Watson's Human Caring Science in the Digital Age Authored by: Kathleen Sitzman PhD, RN
FEATURED ARTICLE ABSTRACT:
The emergence of the digital age has expanded the role of the nurse to include frequent digital interactions with instructors, peers, patients, managers, organizations, communities, and beyond. Also, because digital resources provide expansive teaching/learning/sharing opportunities where challenges related to geography, proximity, time, language, culture, and economics do not preclude accessibility, new possibilities for establishing global caring/learning communities have emerged where transdisciplinary, multicultural, diverse cohorts from all over the world have opportunities to come together to learn about caring and share unique perspectives and experiences. Ten studies based on Watson’s human caring theory, all with a focus on teaching,conveying, and sustaining caring in online nursing classrooms, have validated the applicability and relevance of utilizing Jean Watson’s human caring theory to better understand the phenomenon of caring in digital settings.
