Humanistic Nursing Communication Theory and Ethics of Humanistic Nursing Communication Theory by B. W. Battey (aka B. W. Duldt) were developed to bring into nursing the knowledge base of the Communication and Human Relations discipline. The theories are believed to be consistent with holistic and humanistic theoretical paradigms and are designed to be used in conjunction with other theories.
The Humanistic Nursing Communication Theory and Ethics of Humanistic Nursing Communication Theory emphasize the interpersonal relationships between the nurse, patient, peers and colleagues. Two tools have been developed to Conduct research based on these theories: the Nursing Communication Observation Tool (NCOT) and the Job-Satisfaction- Communication-Importance (JSCI).
Theory of spiritual care for nursing practice. The authorís purpose is to address the issues of establishing the nursing practice of holistic care in hospitals and similar health care agencies as well as in educational programs.

Incorporating spirituality into oneís own nursing practice or for the entire nursing staff at an agency is probably a most pressing and intangible task facing nursing today. This text is not the final answer, but is offered to provide one perspective that may provide direction for a multicultural approach and serve as a theoretical guide for nurse educators as well as nursing leaders.
