The Registered nurse Theorists:
21st-Century Updates—Jean Watson
Jacqueline Fawcett, RN; PhD; FAAN
Teacher, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, University of Massachusetts–Boston This edited transcript of an interview with Blue jean Watson gives Watson's new thoughts about the current condition of the self-discipline of medical and the beginning of new viewpoints; the contributions of her theory of human patient; and her other work on the growth of the discipline of breastfeeding, complementary and alternative solutions, nursing analysis, and nursing education.
Jean Watson had planned to write a book about a built-in curriculum for the baccalaureate programs in nursing jobs. Instead, she developed a novel composition for standard nursing procedures, which was published in the book Breastfeeding: The Idea and Research of Qualified (Watson, 1979). The work shown in that publication solved some of Watson's conceptual and scientific problems regarding nursing and formed the foundation
for technology and art of human being caring. A long time later,
Watson (1997) discussed that her 1979 publication was released
before there was any formal movement in nursing relevant to
nursing theory per se. That emerged coming from my search for bring new meaning and dignity to the world of nursing and patient
care—care that appeared too limited in its range at the time, mainly defined simply by medicine's paradigm and traditional biomedical science models. My spouse and i felt a dissonance among nursing's paradigm (yet to become defined as such) of caring-healing and
health, and medicine's paradigm of diagnosis and treatment, and concentration on disease and pathology. (p. 49)
The theory of human nurturing evolved as Watson continued to
fix other conceptual problems, and also philosophic concerns about nursing jobs. The theory, that has been initially posted in Watson's (1985) publication Nursing: Human Science and Human Care: A Theory of Nursing, focuses on the human component of caring and the moment-to-moment encounters between the one who is caring plus the one who has been cared for, particularly the caring activities performed simply by nurses because they interact with other folks. In mil novecentos e noventa e seis, Watson mentioned that the theory has continuing to progress " right up until this minute in history” (p. 141).
I initial interviewed Jean Watson in February l989 in Denver colorado,
Colorado.

On the Self-discipline of Nursing
JF: So what do you think about the existing state with the discipline of nursing?
JW: I think the discipline of nursing has to be rethought. We should clarify that which we mean by discipline. Although the
disciplinary emphasis has become more distinct within the last
two decades through the maturing of nursing theory, further logic is required. When it comes to the nursing profession becoming informed by discipline, I think we have a considerable ways to go. I believe, too, we are still along the way of clarifying what is the size of the disciplinary matrix of nursing scientific research. For example , is usually caring knowledge a part
from the matrix of nursing understanding?
At a deeper level, the term discipline also provides a
perception of personal willpower, that is, the ontological and
spiritual development of nurses themselves, the...
