Caring is a complex and multidimensional concept. The quality of interaction in patient care encounters is affected by philosophical beliefs that shape practice design, delivery, and structural aspects of the practice environment. Florida Atlantic University’s Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing operates two nurse-managed centers that address diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease care; these play a critical role in the reduction of cost of care. In this article, we demonstrate the impact of following a caring philosophy in our centers through intersubjective, interobjective, interior and exterior individual, and collective measures. A philosophy of caring in action allows these centers to become places where the beauty and mystery of the human life experience is lived, studied, and researched.
