Caring relationships between individuals and practitioners are vitally important to both and provide a means for exchanging information, feelings, and concerns. Caring focuses attention on the mind, body, and spirit and includes being as well as knowing and doing. Foundational to establishing a caring relationship is an understanding and awareness of self. When one understands and accepts self, an appreciation of oneself in relationship to others can occur and a caring relationship has fertile ground from which to grow. Purpose: The purpose of this descriptive correlational pilot study is to examine, as an initial test of a model of relationship centered care, relationships among self-care activities, perceived caring ability, and perceived caring efficacy in a group of nurses in clinical practice. Conceptual Framework: A model of relationship centered care and Watson’s theory of caring (1988) provide a suitable framework for this study. Participants: Eighty registered nurses from a private hospital in a mid-sized university town in the Midwest who are currently in staff nurse positions, and have been for at least a year, are being recruited after being selected using a random number chart. Methods: Questionnaires are delivered to the participants’ work mailboxes with the following attached; a letter describing the study, consent form, self-addressed stamped envelope for returning the questionnaire to the researcher. Study variables are measured using three instruments. HPLP (Walker et al., 1987) is a 48-item instrument measuring major components of a healthy lifestyle, Caring Ability Inventory (Nkongho, 1990) is a 37-item measure of one’s ability to care within relationships, and Caring Efficacy Scale (Coates, 1997) is a 30-item measure of one’s ability to express a caring orientation and develop caring relationships with patients. Analysis: Data analysis and hypotheses testing will be done with Pearson Correlations and linear regression. Relationships among study variables and demographic characteristics such as age and level of nursing education will be examined.
