Concept of personhood as used in nursing caring theory Introduction

Coyne et al. (2018) defines personhood as the process of living and growing in a caring life. The element is characterized by being authentic, demonstrating congruence between behaviors and beliefs, and developing meaning from one’s life. Having the characteristics of personhood makes a person be able to acknowledge the caring responsibilities from one situation to another. Nursing as a caring theory, on the other hand, consists of various scopes of nursing of ensuring that people understand their health and the best care is delivered to clients, patients, families, and communities to ensure that everyone in the healthcare system receives quality services that they deserve.
