Self-Agency & Nursing Theoretical PerspectivesA 5 page research paper. One of the basic principles of nursing is that intervention should aid the client/patient in obtaining the goal of self-agency or self-care. Nurses, in other words, do not seek simply to aid patients during a period of illness or injury, but to help them in reestablishing their ability to care for themselves and thereby resume their normal lives. This examination of this patient concern looks at the goal of self-agency from the perspective offered by three different nursing theoretical models, that of Orem, King and Rogers. This discussion will illustrate some of the numerous benefits that can be gained from employing nursing theory (or models) in considering patient concerns. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
