What is Caring? The Free Dictionary (2002) defines caring: Caring is a feeling and

exhibiting concern and empathy for others; showing or having compassion.

Merrill et al (2012) state, Caring is the heart and artistry of nursing so understanding what actions, attitudes, and

behaviors convey caring is essential to good practice (p.36). Caring behaviors

Vance (2003) states the top ten caring behaviors are: Attentive listening Patience

Touch Comforting Responsibility

Providing information so the patient can make an informed decision

Calling the patient Sensitivity Honesty Respect

Clukey et al (2009) found that the dominant behavior identified as being caring was explaining what was going on

and interpreting medical jargon and further stated that appearing hurried and abrupt was noted as a behavior that was not

caring(p.73). Rhodes, Morris, & Lazenby (2011) concluded that

competence and caring are interrelated and advocate for the image of nurses to become that of competent and

intelligent caregivers. Self Care Jean Watson
