  • The Dynamic Nursing Care Model (DNCM) is a schematic depiction of the framework for professional nursing practice at RPCI. This model demonstrates a process which is both fluid and dynamic because of the ever-changing needs of the oncology patient and family. This model combines the RPCI mission, vision and values with nursing practice, evidence-based practice, workforce group relationships to foster a dynamic environment for the professional growth and development of the nurse with the ultimate outcome of quality patient care. Quality indicators, nursing evaluation and research are used to measure outcomes for the patient, family, community, nursing and RPCI.

    Peplau’s work has remarkable influence on nursing practice and education as we know it today and on development of later nursing theories. She urged nurses to use nursing situations as a source of observations from which unique nursing concepts could be derived (Parker, 2006)....

  • The historical time period of the early 1970's was a very influential time for the development of nursing theory. The theories outlined in this presentation represent the four major theories introduced in 1970-1974. Each of these theories still holds relevance for the study and practice of nursing today. Many research studies have built upon these theories to expand nursing knowledge, improve the quality of patient care and advance the profession of nursing. Much of the curriculum of nursing programs today touches on these very theorists. We hope you enjoyed the presentation and learned some interesting facts.

    If the nursing profession is to continue to make advancements, it must envision new ways of perceiving the phenomena peculiar to nursing and must propose meaningful explanations for these perceptions. The approaches to nursing theory development are spread out over a theory practice continuum, ranging from Martha Roger's pure scientific approach to Dickoff and James’ practice approach. The very existence of this continuum signifies nursing's problem in deciphering the nature of the relationship between nursing theory and nursing practice. While the development of nursing theory is essential to the establishment of a theoretical body of knowledge unique to nursing as a science, this must not be its only function. Theory development must be integrated with nursing practice if the profession is to survive and grow.
