It also clarifies nursing values and development and allows for accountability. It involves patients in co-ordinated nursing care (Feo and Kitson, 2016). The Roper, Logan and Tierney model helps nurses to focus on patient care by following the fundamental rights of maintaining independence of the ADL’s without diminishing dignity. Recognising that their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour may be influenced by biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico-economic factors and respecting their decisions in such. Overcoming and preventing illness to maintain independence is the nurses key focus in delivering patient care which follows the direction of the RLT model of nursing (Roper, Logan and Tierney, 2001).
Adams, it is important to address all areas from a holistic standpoint. This would include psychosocial, environmental and medical interventions. While providing care it is important to remember Florence Nightingale’s goal of nursing is to “assist the patient to regain “vital powers” by meeting their needs, which in the end puts the patient in the best condition for nature to act upon.” (Smith & Parker, 2015). Nightingale believed that nurses contribute to restoring health in a direct and indirect way by the management of patient’s environment (Smith & Parker, 2015). As the assessment begins for Mrs. Adams there are many things that need to be addressed.
Nursing to me is a commitment to not only my patients but the community in which they reside. It takes great skill and dedication to be a nurse. Nursing goes beyond simply caring for patients. It involves aspects that many people do not realize, for example, education. When a nurse graduates from a program they are expected to continue to learn new things and stay up to date on the current needs of the community.
Choice of Nursing I chose nursing as a career because I knew it was my calling. I have the desire to help and care for people who are in need and this was what drew me into this profession. Being a nurse gives me that rewarding feeling, knowing that I’ve made a positive difference in my patient’s life. I love interacting with people and nursing gives me that chance to do it every day. With nursing, I have so many options and specialties to choose from.
The field of nursing has pursued to gain recognition as a profession as opposed to a vocation for decades and has made great headway since its humble beginning.Since Hildegard Peplau’s first recognized theory of nursing, nurses everywhere have worked to apply it in practice in order to gain validity as professionals. To add to that concept, McCrae (2011) wrote, “The legitimacy of any profession is built on its ability to generate and apply theory” (p. 222). Martha Raile Alligood (2014) dedicated a section in her text, Nursing theorists and their work defending this principle. Alligood said, “Nursing theoretical works represent the most comprehensive presentation of systematic nursing knowledge;therefore, nursing theoretical works are vital to the future of both the discipline and the profession of nursing” (p. 2). It is evident that some professionals have sought out ways to reduce nursing theories and make them a thing of the past, but they are still highly regarded in professional healthcare.
Contrarily, some have been observed as cornerstones and agreed upon by the masses in the nursing profession and accepted into practice by generations of nurses. Most theories are just a problem solving approach. As a graduate student Sister Callista Roy was challenged by her professors to develop a conceptual model for nursing practice (Vera, 2014). Roy knew that including mental concepts into her framework meant that her model would have to be adaptable, in order to give each person individualized care based on their needs. Sister Callista Roy was a firm believer that nursing was a service to society which provided the ground work for her theory of the Adaptation Model of Nursing (Vera, 2014).
INTRODUCTION The Healthcare information system (HIS) is a group of systems used to support and enhance healthcare e.g. Clinical information systems (CISs) ,Administrative information system .Nursing Information System (NIS). (WHO, 2016) These systems combined together provide a standardized nursing language for nurses because it provides a common pattern for all nurses in different locations. (Hebda, Czar & Mascara, 2005) These combinations can reduce a number of medically related errors and improve our health care system. For many years, the medical field created several ways and means to educate those who are learning as well as they provided practice for those who have already established themselves as doctors, nurses and persons specialized

The Discussion paper of Mcarae focuses mainly on the relativity of Nursing models as an integral part for evidenced based practice in the services provided by nurses ,who has interdisciplinary roles that changes from time to time. Counterarguments for challenges against the nursing theory are discussed as well. He traced back the nursing model conceived by Hildegrad Peplau specifically providing a backbone for practice of the therapeutic use of self as an agent of change towards patients on all walks of life and not only for nurses practicing mental health nursing. This nursing model proved to be very amenable due to the described process in interaction which starts with orientation, identification, exploitation and resolution. Moreover, as
