9780070475250: Nursing: Concepts of Practice

NURSING: CONCEPTS OF PRACTICE presents a thorough description of the development of the self-care deficit nursing theory and illustrates its relevance to nursing practice with a common sense approach. The text presents the foundations of nursing as a field of knowledge and practice and provides an approach to "knowing and thinking nursing," which forms the basis and organizing framework for nursing actions in all types of practice situations. Thoroughly revised and updated, it contains five new chapters and three revised chapters, expanding upon the importance of nursing practice models and the stages of development within the models.

  • Develops nursing practice as a service in society which presents the criteria used for determining the legitimacy of the nurse and patient relationship and the interpersonal factors that affect their relationship and role
  • Presents and develops a theory of nursing in the self-care theory, the self-care deficit theory, and nursing system
  • Develops the application of nursing as a practical science
  • Identifies how factors such as age, gender, culture, health, and environment affect the nursing of patients
  • Chapter 1, A Prologue to Understanding NursingThe Human Service Feature of Nursing, addresses the need for nursing by answering the questions: what is needed, why is it needed, who provides it, and how is it provided
  • Chapter 3, The Human Condition and Nursing Requirements of Individuals, discusses the nature of self-care for individuals
  • Chapter 6, Views of Nursing and Views of Human Kind, addresses nursing concepts through the views of nursing
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
