I wrote my own philosophy/theory of nursing.

click here to read it.

It incorporates Neuman's Systems theory. I find the systems theory WAY overcomplicated; however, when I simplify it, it really resonates with me.

Oooooh! Neuman's theory a la NurseSean! Thanks. And thank you, too, for reminding me of the multifaceted concerns that exist in holistic nursing.

Smile I like this thread

one of My fav topics. Cultural competence. I agree with those who suggest that cultural competence will lead to being great nurses. While Leininger identifies that nurses need to be competent in this area there is a newer theory developed in New Zealand by Irihapeti Ramsden which I find very helpful. New Zealand is a place that was settled first by the Maori, polynesisans who travelled widely in the Pacific settling and exploring. It was then colonised by the British who did what all colonists did to the indiginous folks. The NZ crown have a treaty with the Maori and so are bound to try to work to with them. Ramsden's work is for me summed up by saying if Florence Nightingale said treat each person regardless of their differences (ie don't treat poor people worse than rich ones)then Ramsden's says treat each person regardfully of ther differences (ask each person how they want/need to be treated and don't assume what culture thay are).
Then we can competently look after blond blue eyed people, who would tell if you asked, that they are culturally Maori (they just get their skin colour from their english greatgranny). It's a great theory it takes in that old folks may have a different culture than young, same for gay/straight, rich/poor
Googleing gets heaps of hits on this topic. New Zealand Nursing Council have some stuff.

That reminds me of a doco I saw called 'A class divided'. It is interesting to see where children learn discrimination. I am not a big one on nursing theories (don't even remember focusing on them in our course), but I'm interested in the theory that you mentioned Jacquibee.
