For this , in four to five paragraphs, contrast two nursing models and theories found in your reading. Discuss how they are similar or different in the way the define/discuss health and wellness, illness, the client, the environment, and nursing. Summarize by selecting the one model or theory that aligns best with your beliefs and then describe how this would affect the way in which you would practice nursing. https://ambassadored.vitalsource.com/#/books/97808…
Developing a framework of practice early in your career is essential and very helpful. A practice framework is developed when you select a reference point for how you believe care should be delivered. This is considered theory based practice. It usually emerges from the values you now have and those that will develop as you deliver nursing care first hand. Fortunately we have many nurses who have developed frames of reference from their values and beliefs about health, wellness, caring, science and many other concepts. These are available to us to review and see if they align with what we believe. Some are considered philosophies, some are models, and others are considered theories. In your textbook reading you were able to review these. For example, we know that Dorothea Orem defined health as the ability to live to the fullest through self-care. Jean Watson’s more contemporary philosophy focuses on transpersonal caring and her “10 caritas” provide us with a perspective on how the “art of nursing” can be practiced. Callista Roy offers even another view of alteration in health by discussing adaptation and coping within an environment. Several others are detailed in your reading.
All of these are important to know and learn as you will use these to begin to develop your own approach and philosophy (an assignment in this module). It is also helpful to become familiar with these as you will see others work from a theory base and by understanding the different possibilities you will find it helpful when working with them. Many healthcare settings are also selecting nursing models and theories as their basis for practice.
