METAPARADIGM CONCEPTS: PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY

Weekly Objectives 1 and 2 will be addressed in this discussion.

In order to post to this forum, first complete the Week 2 readings and presentations.

Instructions:

Consider the 4 metaparadigm concepts: nursing, person, environment, and health. Select one and articulate your own beliefs, assumptions, and values related to that concept. Describe a personal experience from clinical practice that demonstrates and reflects the beliefs, assumptions, and values you identified. This is your own, personal philosophy; no references should be used. The table below is provided to serve as an instructional guide for this assignment. You should include the following:

  • Identify one metaparadigm concept from the following: nursing, health, person, or environment.
  • Articulate your personal beliefs: (1) definitions and descriptions; (2) assumptions; and (3) values related to your selected concept.
  • Describe a detailed interaction between you and a client or family that depicts the beliefs, assumptions, and values related to your selected concept.
*Philosophical Statement Instruction Guide

Note: The questions below are designed to help get ideas flowing and are not the only focus of your statement.

Nursing (i.e., nursing actions)
  • What is your definition of nursing?
  • Is the metaparadigm concept nursing an art, a science, or both? Is it a process or a product (set of tasks)?
  • What is nursing mainly (e.g., caring, therapeutic healing, building relationships)?
  • What is the role reflected in nursing (e.g., doing for, being with [being present with], working with)?
  • Where do ethics fit in?
  • Who or what is the object of nursing’s concern?
Health
  • What is your definition of health (e.g., includes absence of disease, ability to perform social roles)?
  • Is health on a continuum?
  • Can clients have a chronic illness and still be termed healthy in your definition of health?
  • What if the client’s view of health and your view of health are different?
Person
  • What is your definition of person (e.g., set of behavioral systems, biopsychosocial and spiritual being, energy field)?
  • Who is the person being nursed (e.g., client, family, community)?
Environment
  • What is it? Where is it found?
  • Are there different components to environment (e.g., emotional, spiritual, social, cultural, mainly physical)?
  • Is environment separate from person?
  • What is the nurse’s role in terms of environment?
  • Are there internal and external environments, or is what is internal to a person part of the person?
Description and Examples
This whole philosophical statement is a statement of “beliefs.” However, for the purpose of teasing out and articulating your beliefs, they are divided into three types: definitions and description, assumptions, and values. Each of these should be written in separate paragraphs to ensure clarity and comprehensiveness.

Definitions and Description: This should be a succinct definition (one or two sentences), followed by a broader description. For example, if part of your definition of person was the person is a biopsychosocial and spiritual being, then each of the component parts (e.g., spiritual being) would be described more fully.

Assumptions: A given, something that you take for granted that it is true. Examples are: Humans are rational beings. Individuals desire to work collaboratively with their nurses.

Values: Something you consider good (i.e., desirable, worthy, or of esteem). Examples are: All persons are of value and are worthy of respect. Clients should be treated with dignity. Confidentiality and privacy are essential throughout all interactions with clients. Persons should be given choice in their treatment regimens.
