This paper looks at Jacqueline Fawcett's framework of analysis and evaluation of conceptual modules of nursing. It attempts to select a specific example as a kind of case study and uses this as an evaluation tool and example throughout the paper. The purpose of Dr. Fawcett's text is to marry ideas regarding nursing theory with nursing practice and this paper attempts to do so as well, albeit in a much more concentrated format. Nursing theory is supposed to provide aid to nurses through describing and "controlling" the theoretical framework through which care is provided. This paper assesses Fawcett's model on those terms.
From the Paper:"At the beginning of her text, Jacqueline Fawcett traces the historical evolution of the conceptual model of nursing, to the present development of the "metaparadigm" model of nursing. Unlike previous theoretical models, the metaparadigm model links concepts such as "person," "environment," "health," and "nursing" from a merely thematic approach, where such concepts are looked at in isolation, to one in which propositions regarding these cornerstones of care are linked as a part of a general model of nursing care. Fawcett relies on the four-pronged approach to the development of nursing knowledge in her model. She labels these four prongs as "person," environment," "health," and "nursing." "
