Welcome to week six of your nursing theory class.
We are still exploring section III which involves Conceptual Models/Grand Theories in the Integrative-Interactive Paradigm
Our text readings will include concepts from:
Chapter 12: Helen Erickson, Evelyn Tomlin, and Mary Ann Swain’s Theory or Modeling and Role Modeling
Chapter 13: Barbara Dossey’s Theory of Integral Nursing
As healthcare professionals, we need to be aware of nursing theory, as you heard it many times that it applies to our practice as nurses. When you think about it, how many practicing nurses are aware of the nursing theories and how they use in their careers. If you have a chance this week, go and ask a colleague about what they know regarding nursing theorist and who may be their favorite theorist in the profession.
You will see an overlap in the three nursing theorist listed below (Erickson, Tomlin, and Swain).
As your read and explore the following website resources, think about how their works contribute to our current practices today in nursing.
We will investigate Modeling and Role Modeling in nursing; these concepts will build upon the four metaparadigms of nursing: Person, Environment, Health, and Nursing.
When using the modeling and role-modeling theory, the nurse attempts to understand the “client’s personal model of his or her world and to appreciate its value an significance for the client from the client’s perspective.” (Masters, 2015).
After completion of your reading assignments, please engage in our discussion board following the grading rubric with adherence to APA written standards. This assignment is worth 1 point.

Who is Barbara Dossey? What is her Theory of Integral Nursing?
An integral process is defined as a comprehensive way to organize multiple phenomenon of human experience and reality from four perspectives:
(1) the individual interior (personal/intentional);
(2) individual exterior (physiology/behavioral);
(3) collective interior (shared/cultural); and
(4) collective exterior (systems/structures) (Dossey, n.d.).
