NURSING MODEL/THEORY APPLICATION

*****

Overview

A nurse's role, according to Virginia Henderson's Nursing Theory, which she wrote prior ***** the development of *****oretical nursing, is to help a person, whether he/she is sick or well, to complete activities, contributing ***** his/her recovery process (or peaceful death). As the quote introducing this paper notes, the ***** a nurse helps an individual perform include those he/she would complete if he/she possessed the required will, strength, or knowledge - in a way to help him/her gain or regain his/her independence. (Resuggan, 2008) Prior to Henderson (1966), Florence Nightingale (1856/1969) stressed ***** value of self*****care in nursing. (Singleton, 2000, ¶s 5 - 7) Complementing *****'***** and Nightingale's work, more than three decades ago, Orem's self*****care deficit theory (Orem 1971, 1980, 1985, 1991, 1995; cited by Singleton, 2000, ¶s 5 - 7) evolved as the prominent model in the self*****care area, focusing on an individual's physical nature identifying ********** within the physical realm. In additi*****, according to self-care deficit theory denotes "the nurse ***** diagnose clients" self-care *****s ***** prescribe how those deficits will be met." (Single*****n, 2000, ¶s 5 - 7) In determining how deficits will ***** met, Henderson stressed the value ***** helping a person become as independent ***** possible. Her "theory" contends that nursing *****s ***** individuals gain independence in relation to perform*****g activities which contribute to their health or the ***** of health. "She described the nurse's role as substitutive (doing f***** the *****), supplementary (helping ***** person), or complementary (working with the person), with ***** goal of helping the person become ***** independent as possible." (Henderson, 1966, p. 15; ***** by Virginia Henderson, 2000 ***** 2007) The following 14 components, b*****ed on human needs, according to Henderson, characterize ***** *****.

Breathe normally.

Eat and drink adequately.

Eliminate body wastes.

***** and maintain desirable postures.

Sleep and rest.

***** suitable clothes-dress ***** undress.

Maintain body temperature within normal range by adjusting clothing and modifying environment

Keep the ***** clean and well groomed and protect ***** integument

***** dangers in the ***** ***** avoid *****juring others.

Communicate with ***** in expressing emotions, *****, fears, or opinions.

Worship according to one's faith.

***** in such a way that there is a sense of accomplishment.

Play or participate in various forms of recreation.

Learn, discover, or satisfy the curiosity that leads to n*****mal development and health and use ***** available ***** facilities. ("Virginia Henderson's Need...," 2004 - 2008)
