Title: The Metaparadigm for Nursing
The Metaparadigm for Nursing
A paradigm is the worldview for the discipline. A metaparadigm is the broadest perspective of the discipline, a way to describe the concepts that concern the profession or domain. The metaparadigm for nursing describes those concepts that define the discipline of nursing. Since the early 1970’s, four concepts (person, health, nursing, and environment) have been considered essential in describing the parameters of the profession. While controversy exists for the inclusion of these concepts and not others, they have been viewed consistently as essential to the domain of nursing. One of the core courses developed for master’s students is titled “Concepts and Theories in Nursing”. During this one semester course, students read and discuss various articles. Each student group described person, health, nursing, and environment in a creative way. This presentation would be in the form of a poster highlighting the concepts of health and nursing. The work is attached.
