Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, facilitation of healing, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations.(ANA 2015)

The metaparidgm theories of Nursing encompasses person, health, environment and Nursing.

  Its a nurses role to treat each patient as an individual,appreciate how different patients react to the same illness.How a person reacts to an illness is based on their knowledge of the disease, their socio-economic back ground and their health, in that if a patient is immuniocompromised from another disease it will influence how they react to the current illness. Its therefore a nurses role to look at a patient as anwhole,get proper history, base their treatment on that and be ready to adjust if their needs change. 

  The health of the patient is the goal of all medical workers including nurses.All attempts should therefore be made to achieve that.Its the nurses role to make sure all all investigations are carried out, treatment given on schedule to  facilitate this.

  The nurse should also create an environment where healing is maximised and health facilitated.The environment should be ideal to address patient’s diverse needs, prevent any injuries during the patient’s hospital stay and prevent recurrence of the same illness.

  In summary the Nurse should not only focus on the patient but also on their environment and their health and be ready to adjust as their needs change.The nurse should be able to liase with all other care givers to ensure all the above is done.
