As individuals in a profession that deals with human beings and healing, it is our obligation to enhance a patients healing in any way possible. If that should mean developing one’s understanding of how our intention can affect patient care, then it is our responsibility and ethical duty as a health care provider to do so. The writings and teaching of Watson and others like her have changed the field of Nursing in a profound way. Watson’s contribution to Nursing’s body of knowledge is immeasurable and her work brings insight and inspiration to a field filled with challenges. It is my belief that if applied, Watson’s words and theory can change a nurse’s practice and even their life.
