The Watson Caring Science Institute is an international non-profit foundation created to advance the philosophies, theories and practices of Human Caring, originated by Jean Watson, Distinguished Professor Emerita and Dean Emerita of University of Colorado Denver, College of Nursing, where she held the Endowed Chair in Caring Science at the University of Colorado Denver and Health Sciences Center.

The Theory and Science of Human Caring seeks to restore the profound nature of caring-healing, and bring the ethic and ethos of Love back into Healthcare. Through an extended network of professional, clinical and academic colleagues, the Institute will translate the model of Caring-Healing/Caritas into more systematic programs and services which can continue to transform healthcare, one nurse/one practitioner/one educator/one system at a time.

The Watson Caring Science Center is dedicated to help the current health care system retain its most precious resource, competent, caring professional nurses, while preparing a new generation of health professionals in a broader model of Caring Science. The WSCI will help to ensure caring and healing for the public, reduce nurse turnover, and decrease costs to the system.
