Nursing is a practice discipline that incorporates scientific and nonscientific knowledge originating from scholarly inquiry. To understand nursing one must understand the concepts, theories, and laws that are constant and evolving. This understanding will inform practice. This week you will begin to explore how theory and knowledge have developed. As you explore the patterns, consider how you might apply some of the patterns to your own practice.
Upon completion of this module, the learner will be able to:
Identify the concepts, theories, and laws that inform nursing practice.
Discuss the five patterns of knowing in a situation from your own practice.
Discuss the role of the holistic nurse.
Discuss how your personal values and beliefs exemplify spiritual care.
