Watson Caring Science Center

The Watson Caring Science Center advances the art and science of human caring knowledge, ethics, and clinical practice in the fields of nursing and health sciences. We offer authentic, mindful, Caring Science educational programs and workshops to help nurses, care providers and health care systems transform from the inside out. This transformation involves a step back to the core values, knowledge, purpose, skill and meaning that honors our commitment to care for our patients and ourselves.

This center, within the University of Colorado College of Nursing and directed by Sara Horton-DeutschPhD, RN, PMHCNS, FAAN, ANEF​​embraces the work of Jean Watson, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN​,​ the Watson Caring Science Institute and the International Caritas Consortium, bringing the research of Caring Science back into the environment of an academic health sciences center.
