This paper explains that the major concern of nursing is keeping the client system stable throughout constant life changes with accuracy, both in assessing the effects of environmental stressors and in assisting client adjustments required for optimal level wellness through primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention strategies as intervention. The paper points out that, because the model is built on general systems theory with the flexibility that allows identification of the client as an individual, family, group, or community, it is equally appropriate for an interdisciplinary team in a public health department with the client as community, an acute care psychiatric hospital with client as an individual, or an adolescent drug rehabilitation center with client as family. The paper relates that the practice of nursing is limited to the health care provision or the location of the patient; however, if the best health care is desired, it is imperative for nursing to extend beyond its conventional boundaries.

From the Paper:

"Coupled by the importance of performing at one's best in order to achieve high quality pediatric health service, the Neuman systems model can deal with a patient's need for immediate help. This is because of the fact that the model allows nurses to reach their patients when they are most needed. An example of this is in the case where young patients suffer from respiratory diseases, such as Asthma. In order to deal with their patients also need to be foresighted, and according to the model this is what they will be able to do. It must be asserted that this kind of intuition is a must when dealing with young patients, as they may not feel comfortable or not be able to communicate their feelings well enough."
