From the Paper:

"Parse's theory of human becoming theory is a means for providing structure for ways of thinking and being with patients as they create their own quality of life. Human becoming theory is concerned with lived experiences of health (Kelly, 1999). The holistic approach is essential since lived experience, meaning, and understanding all form various aspects of the unitary process of human life (Kelly, 1999). Parse's concepts guide nursing for being present with the patient as they illuminate meaning, synchronize rhythms, and co-transcend with the possibles. Hope is based in these possibles: the person is moving beyond the present toward the unknown. My life experience will illustrate how Parse's theory helps the person to maintain hope and to achieve transformation. For Parse, the central idea is that the person is expert for their lives and they always have choices. The person is involved in a search for meaning and is capable of achieving transformation."
