Orem affirms the theory of nursing systems defines exactly how the patient 's self-care essentials will be resolved or met by the patient or nurse (Self Care Deficit Theory, 2014). Orem classifies three classifications of nursing systems to encounter the self-care conditions of the patient. They are categorized as wholly compensatory system, partly compensatory system, and supportive-educative system (Self Care Deficit Theory, 2014). Nursing systems are a “sequence and structures of measured applied engagements of nurses to protect any disease processes, detect any abnormalities and to bring that patient back to equilibrium (Self Care Deficit Theory, 2014). A good example of this theory would be the nursing process.
Dorothea Orem’s self-care deficit nursing theory is one such nursing theory that has been reworked to take into account the changes in our world, while still maintaining the initial framework (Taylor & Renpenning, 2011). Purpose of Self-Care Deficit Nursing Theory Dorothea Orem (as cited in Taylor & Renpenning, 2011) described her purpose in formalizing the Self-Care Deficit Nursing Theory as a way of defining the structure of nursing and explaining knowledge, rules and roles of nursing. Orem was attempting to answer the question of why, when and how a nurse is needed in the care of a patient (Smith & Parker, 2015). According to Younas (2017), self-care deficit nursing theory is also a practical effort to delineate the patient role along with that of the nurse.

Nurses intervention are there to coordinate the rhythm between human and environment and assisting the patient in the change process and toward a better health. 9. Dorothea Orem- Orem’s theory creates self care, known as the practice of activity, in which the patient performs his personal routine and needs independently to maintain health and lifestyle, according to age, developmental state, experiences in life, and cultural background.

It requires an understanding of the care seeker 's culture and acknowledging what matters to them while caring them in the same as other individuals. Article: Culturally Competent Care: Are we There Yet?
It is intended to check its educational use, its application and its role in the achievement of consensus communication between the nurse and the user as a requirement to make learning about the self-care place. This study emerges from the observed finding that, at times, the vision and the meaning of the metaphor used by professional didactic intentions not always match image and the sense of the user, causing them to be a source of confusion in the communication process and the understanding of their State of health. As a result, that could affect the application of treatments and care. Metaphors are present in all areas of the health sector. "We could say that it is (the metaphor) omnipresent e fills our thoughts, forming an integral part of it and the language and even that is irreplaceable since it helps us to better understand our world and ourselves" (Gutierrez,
The nursing assessment is the foundation to building a therapeutic patient-nurse relationship. The patient-nurse relationship begins to form at the first encounter. Nursing assessment is the first encounter between patient and nurse. First impressions are made and these judgements can greatly affect how a client perceives a nurse (Patrick, 2013).
Discussion of Evidenced-Based Practice as a Science The science of nursing is based on evidence-based practices and constitutes the core of nursing. What is wrong with the patient? Why are they here? What information do you have to support your care plan?

Third step considers the planning of care in the collaboration of clinical treatment team.
