ABSTRACTCaring theory postulates the necessity of caring for the self before one can be fully present to care for another. Several of Jean Watson’s Clinical Caritas Processes reflects the impact of self-care on care for others(Watson, 2013). Yet despite the emphasis on self-care in nursing theory, far too often it is not emphasized in the classroom setting. This pilot project will describe the evolution of efforts to enhance aspects of caring theory in a Senior Capstone clinical conference in a BSN pre-licensure program. Specifically, the use of ATI’s Nurse’s Touch™ product to promote self-care activities in nursing students will be discussed. Nursing students will be asked to complete a preceived stress scale and self-care inventory. Data will be utilized to evaluate curricular approaches to enhancing self-care activities in nursing students.
