Description
The purpose of this paper is to describe nursing practice as guided by the theory of Technological Competency as Caring in Nursing(TCCN). In the past, nurses practiced nursing based on medical knowledge and skillful techniques. Today, derived from nursing science, professional nursing is founded on nursing knowledge and its practice ought to be based on theories of nursing. Within the TCCN theory, nursing is a dynamic engagement between the nurse and the patient, occurring ina technological encounter within the universal technological domain. The process of knowing persons as nursing practice is illustrated as technological knowing, mutual designing and participative engaging. Through the theory of TCCN, nursing is designed as caring in which both the nurse and patient actively participate in his/her care rather than the nurse consigning the patient simply as objects or recipients of care. The theory clearly explains and illuminates the interface between science, technology, nursing practice, and human caring. Nursing as a practice based on theory is useful in enhancing the quality of life of persons.
