Abstract

In the last few years phrases such as ‘the nursing process’, ‘models of nursing’ and ‘nursing theory’ have become increasingly common in their usage. Some nurses have seen their introduction as yet another attempt to introduce jargon into practical nursing, and to make things which are simple unnecessarily complicated. Others have seen such innovations as a welcome sign that nurses are at last seeking to develop sets of understandings about people and their care-related needs distinct from those offered by the medical, natural and social sciences.
