A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS: HELPING STUDENTS VISUALIZE A CONCEPTUAL MODEL.

Ellen Johnson, Sue RN, MS

Collapse Box

Abstract

Communicating the functional applicability of a conceptual framework to nursing students can be a challenge of considerable magnitude. Nurse educators are convinced that nursing practice and process should stem from theory. However, when attempting to teach this, many educators have struggled with the expressions of confused, skeptical students. To provide a better understanding of a nursing model, the author uses a visual representation of the Neuman Systems Model variables. The student can then visualize application of the Model to nursing practice.
