Concept Analysis on Caring in Nursing

            Concepts are the foundation of theoretical development (Robert, Tilley & Peterson, 2014). They represent meaning, experience and/or ideas of a human experience (Watson & Nelson, 2012). The purpose of a concept analysis is to provide clarity on a particular concept as it relates to both theory and practice in the nursing profession. Concept analysis are used greatly in nursing literature to help develop new concepts and refine existing concepts that relate to nursing for the sole purpose of constructing new theory development(Sargent, 2012).  The concept of caring in nursing practice has evolved over the last several decades. Because there are many variations of the definition of caring, it can be difficult for individuals to understand caring specifically in the nursing sense (Lindberg, Fagerström, Sivberg & Willman, 2014).
