Welcome to the Massachusetts Regional Caring Science Consortium (MRCSC) website. The MRCSC mission is to increase opportunities for nurses in all roles and other health care providers to reconnect with core values and the heart of their healing profession. The MRCSC is a forum for nurses and other health care professions to share and explore Caring Science and caring practices that foster and sustain personal and professional well-being and growth, healing relationships, healthy work environments, and best outcomes in patient care. Toward this goal, the MRCSC offers local no-fee semi-annual or annual conferences in partnership with schools of nursing or health care institutions.
This website serves to increase communication about and registration for the local MRCSC conferences, as well as to provide information about other local, national, and global Caring Science and caring practice initiatives, educational opportunities, and conferences.
“Nursing’s [and other health profession’s] social, moral, professional, and scientific contributions to human kind and society lie in its commitment to sustain and advance human caring values, knowledge, practices, and ideals in theory, practice, education, and research…” (Watson, J. (2012). Human Caring Science: A Theory of Nursing, Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett Learning.)
