Swanson, Kristen M.

a nursing theorist whose Theory of Caring asserts that nursing care is nurturing delivered as a set of interrelated processes that evolve from the nurse's own convictions and knowledge and his or her interaction with the patient. The theory is based on Swanson's Caring Model, which names as the components of caring five basic processes-knowing, being with, doing for, enabling, and maintaining belief (faith in and esteem for the patient). The theory's objective is to help nurses deliver care that promotes the dignity, respect, and empowerment.
