Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Choosing and implementing a nursing theorist can be an overwhelming task for a nursing department. The Professional Nurse Practice Council has spent the last year doing just that. The Chief Nursing Officer shared her philosophy and vision of caring with the staff and it was inevitable that Jean Watson's Caring Theory be integrated into the fabric of our professional nursing environment. We were fortunate enough to have had Jean Watson visit our facility and she has continued to mentor our project as needed. As our council members develop the tools needed to bring this theory to life at the unit level and, more importantly to the bedside, they have also become the caring champions on their respective units. As an organization honored for the past 9 years as a designated Magnet facility, the Forces of Magnetism have successfully driven this process. The objectives of this presentation highlight evidence of the specific Forces as related to the process of choosing and implementing a nursing theorist. References: Watson, J.
