The Caritas Nurse/ Caritas Partner
Humanistic Care Certificate Program

In 2021, In collaboration with Watson Caring Science Institute® (WCSI), the Stanford Center for Education and Professional Development (CEPD) created a unique, interprofessional certificate program introducing participants to Watson Caring Science theory and translation into practice. This Humanistic Care Certificate Program will equip human caring professionals with practical tools to enhance professional caring practices in their work environments. Through dynamic inquiry and dialogue, participants will explore the diverse lived experiences of patients, families, communities, and colleagues through the lenses of human caring, empowering them to transform practice, live, and work with deeper meaning, purpose, dignity, and wholeness. The three-month, five-module certificate program incorporates interactive online instruction, virtual small group work, one-to-one coaching relationship with dedicated SHC Caritas Coaches, and completion of a Caring Science practice-based integration project related to promoting human caring consciousness within their areas of work. Certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the program and recognized at SHC as “Caritas Nurse or Caritas Partner.”

The program integrates current introductory courses from WCSI as Module 1 of the program and build upon that foundation through the remaining modules and final project presentation and graduation ceremony:

Module 1: Caring Science, Mindful Practice - Introduction to Caring Science
Module 2: Creating Caring Consciousness - Translating Caritas for Self and Systems 
Module 3: Creating a Moral, Caring Community - Deepening Human to Human Caring Connections 
Module 4: Communitas and Sacred Activism - Grounding Knowledge into Social Justice, Advocacy, & Informed Moral Action 
Module 5: Graduation Day & Project Presentations
