Exploring Nursing Metaparadigms
An 8 page research paper that examines the four metaparadigms of nursing, person, health, nursing and environment. This examination of these concepts, first of all, discusses the personal view of the writer regarding these fundamental categories. Then, these personal definitions are examined from the perspective of the simultaneity and totality perspectives, as outlined by Parse (1987). Next, the nursing metaparadigms are examined from theoretical perspective proposed by Madeleine Leininger and then, based on this information, personal definitions of these concepts are then reexamined.
