*****

Overview

***** 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 *****ctivities, contributing ***** his/her recovery process (***** peaceful death). As the quote introducing this paper notes, ***** activities a nurse helps *****n individual perform include those he/she would complete if he/she possessed the required will, strength, or knowledge - in a w*****y to help him/her gain ***** regain his/her independence. (Resuggan, 2008) Prior to Henderson (1966), Florence Nightingale (1856/1969) stressed ***** value of self-care in *****. (Singleton, 2000, ¶s 5 - 7) Complementing ***** and Nightingale'***** 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 deficits within ***** physical realm. In addition, according to self-care deficit theory denotes "the nurse will diagnose clients" self-care *****s ***** prescribe how those deficits will be met." (*****, 2000, ¶s 5 - 7) In determining ***** deficits will ***** met, Henderson stressed the value of helping a person become as independent as possible. Her "theory" contends that nursing *****s ***** individuals gain independence in relation ***** performing activities which contribute to their health or the ***** of health. "She described the nurse's role as substitutive (doing f***** the person), supplementary (helping ***** person), or complementary (w*****king with the person), with ***** goal of helping the person become ***** independent as possible." (Henderson, 1966, p. 15; cited by Virginia *****, 2000 - 2007) The following 14 components, b*****ed on human needs, according to Henders*****, characterize ***** *****.

Breathe normally.

Eat and drink adequately.
