Nursing Theories: Foundation of Nursing Profession

Theories are the foundation for all profession. It provides sets of concepts that make the basic knowledge of the specific discipline. Similarly, nursing theories are the set of concepts and principles that define the scientific basis of the nursing profession. These theories help to differentiate between nursing practice and medical practice. Nursing theories provides a medium to rationalize the care provided by the nurses. Moreover, it provides an identity to nurses that differentiate nursing practice from the medical practice. Nursing theories are considered as indicators of evidence-based nursing practices; however, researchers claim that their application is missing from the practice area. Nurses are on the verge of implementing nursing theories.

Routine Episiotomies without Consent

Sexual and reproductive health is now gaining attention all over the globe. If we focus on the reproductive health aspect of a women, a word “pregnancy” always comes in our mind. As a healthcare provider, we know that ethics is involved in all the things we do from autonomy to paternalism, but still we sometimes violate patient’s right. A common practice of giving episiotomy to every pregnant women regardless of their parity status is not a quality care. I personally encountered a case in which same thing happened with a patient. This is a very serious issue because it might end up into complications to the patient. We have to remember that pregnancy is not a disease, but a natural process of giving birth.

Cancer patients’ access to Oncology Nurse Navigator (ONN)

Published studies revealed that patients with cancer and their families experienced dissatisfaction with service fragmentation, delays, lack of information, and lack of coordination. They expressed a sense of isolation, powerlessness, and a lack of guidance. They needed timely information on the disease, treatments, available resources, better communication, and emotional support. Patients referred to the care system as a maze and expressed a need for continuity of care and a person-centered approach. To address the latter need, cancer navigation programs have emerged as a model of care with the Oncology nurse navigator (ONN) playing a key role in assessing the patient’s needs, providing support and guidance throughout the disease trajectory.
