Holistic caring is needed for patients to be able to feel valued and appreciated. Caring for patients holistically will require student nurses to possess and display attributes of mindfulness. Student nurses therefore need to be supported and taught how to provide caring holistically to patients while being aware, being present and conscious in the caring moment. The purpose of this study was to develop and describe the model as a framework of reference to facilitate holistic caring through the development of mindfulness. A theory generative, phenomenological, exploratory, and contextual research design was followed. A diagrammatic structure was constructed after the concept analysis was conducted. The model consisted of three phases with an outcome and a relationship between the nurse educator and the student nurse. The model was evaluated and implemented by student nurses and the model provides a framework of reference to facilitate holistic caring through the development of mindfulness. This study adds a model of mindfulness and a lens of looking at mindfulness through an African Philosophy of Ubuntu to the body of Knowledge.
