Thinking Nurse

This blog will reflect my interests in learning disabilities, nursing, nursing theory, philosophy and politics and my general interests in the arts and literature. (Nursing is an art as well as a science!) Philosophy and nursing have been intrinsically linked since the days of Socrates, his mother was a midwife, and taught him everything he knew!

Nursing Theory - Links That Make You Think

Here are a few links to some of the Nursing Theories and theorists that I have found most useful or interesting over my training. I intend to write more, with more information on each specific theory, and my own criticisms and thoughts about these theories (and others) over the next few weeks and months - so watch this space!

Paterson and Zderad’s Humanistic Nursing Theory:
Phil Barker’s ‘Tidal Model’ of recovery:
Boykin and Schoenhofer’s Theory of Nursing as Caring:
A site dedicated to Hildegard E. Peplau:
Madeleine Leininger’s Website:
Rosemary Rizzo Parse's Theory of Human Becoming:
Archives of the Nursing Philosophy List (well worth joining):

Here are a few good general nursing theory links pages:

When reading all these theories, remember Marx's maxim: "Philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways, the point however is to change it." (Theses on Feuerbach)

I just came across your blog about nursing shoes and wanted to drop you a note telling you how impressed I was with the information you have posted here. I also have a web site about nursing shoes so I know what I'm talking about when I say your site is top-notch! Keep up the great work, you are providing a great resource on the Internet here! If you get a chance, please stop by nursing shoes
