But, as our sisters of the past remind us, it is hard to be all things to all people. We must seek to provide values, standards, and theory to under-pin the important but evolving mission of nursing administration. The histories of medicine and nursing are very important at this crucial juncture in history. In some ways, doctors are losing power and nurses are gaining it. In other ways, both are losing power as insurance companies take on the job of rationing health care. But we should never forget that the work of nursing and medicine will always be symbiotic.

Boykin and Schoenhofer (1993) wrote that their basic premise is that all persons are caring, and caring is an essential feature and expression of being human. Like Sherwood, these authors believe that there is little in the health care environment to support caring at the present time. There are five major concepts of caring: 1. a human trait; 2. a moral imperative; 3. an effect; 4. an interpersonal interaction; and 5. an intervention. Boykin and Schoenhofer believe caring is a process in which persons grow in their ability to express caring.

She believes that fundamental clinical, technological competencies and knowledge are a necessity to caring. This is an important point, since some nurses believe that "there is more to nursing than caring," referring to nursing skills. To Watson, skills are a requisite to caring, not separate from it. Benner and Wrubel (1989) agree that caring is always understood in a context. When the situation calls for technical proficiency, then technical proficiency is experienced as caring. When the patient situation does not call for technical actions, expressive actions such as recognizing the patient's uniqueness are identified as caring.
