Jean. Nursing educator, administrator, researcher, theorist, and practitioner. She began the development of a theory of nursing as human caring in 1979, believing that nursing must move to a new paradigm of humanism. Her theory of human caring makes a substantial contribution to nursing science regarding the spiritual and existential significance of human life. She established the Center for Human Caring at the University of Colorado to provide support for researchers exploring the phenomena of human care.
