Introduction: Motivation Based Caring concept (MBC) extends to various areas, from simple and routine to the most complex nursing procedures in the clinical and community care settings. Motivation is often used as a concept in nursing to explain the pattern and relationships found in nursing phenomena. This study analyzed the concept of MBC using Rodger’s concept analysis model in nursing practice.
Methods: Literature search was conducted without limiting the years of publication. Articles relevant to “Motivation Based Caring” and “Nursing” were identified. The articles that did not meet the selection criteria were excluded. Database searched included EBSCO, PubMed, Cochrane database, and CINAHL. Data collected were collated and analyzed in accordance with the steps of Rodger’s evolutionary concept analysis method.
Results: The total articles sampled N = 22 were analyzed with the focus on MBC and nursing practice. Findings show that understanding the related factors, attributes, antecedents and consequences of MBC made it possible to infer that the application of the concept involve a cognitive skill, logical reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving ability to achieve effective nursing care.
Conclusion: The main implication and hypotheses generated from this study is that the MBC concept is a tool to improve and achieve wholeness patient care and implementation of the skillful nursing practice.
